30 Day Book Challenge - Day 01

Well this 30 Day Book Challenge looks like fun!

 

I'll probably konk out half way (even that's a bit optimistic), and I have a feeling that the same books/series/author will keep popping up, but I might as well give it a go.

 

Day 01 - Best book you read last year

Ah, the year of 2012. The year of the London Summer Olympics (all very exciting in the UK, probably less so around the rest of the world). Also, the year of my biggest reading tally so far. A total of 250 books. 64 of which have a rating of 5 stars.

 

And I have to pick just one.

 

Pfft, that's not going to happen so, in no particular order, I've narrowed it down to four:

 

On Dublin Street - Samantha Young

 

I loved this read. I remember reading through the night because it was really addictive. No BDSM (which makes a nice change). Just some Scottish hunks.

 

Tempt Me at Twilight - Lisa Kleypas

 

Last year, I read quite a lot of Julia Quinn and Lisa Kleypas, and recommend most of their historical romances. I think they're pretty much unanimously thought of as the best in the genre. So I forced myself to pick a favourite, which is 'Tempt Me at Twilight' (Harry is one of the most alpha-male heroes I've come across - what he wants, he gets).

 

Kiss of Snow - Nalini Singh

 

Must I even say anything about this book? It's Hawke.

 

Fury's Kiss - Karen Chance

 

I'm not even going to say anything about this one either - it will no doubt make a regular appearance so I'll fangirl over it another time.
