New Year, New Books, New Swoon Worthy Men!

--Happy New Year All--

With a new year comes fresh starts and that is exactly what I plan on doing this year! I was going to post my Top Fifteen list of 2012 yesterday but I decided since I haven't been the most dedicated blogger this year that I needed to wait for a new year. So today I am going to let you guys in on my Top Fifteen and talk a bit about what I hope to accomplish with my blog this year. Lets get into it!

I hope to be reviewing more as the year goes on but I don't think I am going to go the traditional book blogger route this time around. I may do a meme here and there, but mostly I am going to just be posting my reviews and whatever comes to my mind when it comes to a book. So basically this is going to be my very own blog where I just spew out all sorts of amazing things when it comes to books. I have came a long way in a year as far as my reading tastes go. When I started this blog last year I was completely into Paranormal books and that was all I wanted to read, and now I have gone back to my first love, contemporary books. And not just any contemporary, New Adult Contemporary. I mean shit guys, it is THE BEST. That was probably the biggest reason I quit blogging last year. I got overwhelmed with books that I was just not that into anymore, and writing a review became more like a chore than something I enjoyed doing. So I am not going to take many requests and just read and review what I want. I will hopefully also be guest reviewing for Tara over at Tater's Tall Tails. That way if I lack on my own blog, you can still find me somewhere. Because lets face it folks, Tara and I started around the same time and her blog is BLOWING UP! So once you are done reading my rambling go check out her site!

Now, on to my Top Fifteen of 2012 list. Let me tell you guys, it was NOT easy picking this years top ten. I have read so many INCREDIBLE books this year that I just didn't know where to start. But eventually I narrowed it down and these are my favorite reads of 2012!! In no order mind you, there is no way I could order them if it was just this hard picking a top fifteen!

Well there you have it folks! My top fifteen from 2012. Yeah, I know I may have cheated on two of these but HEY! I couldn't pick between Crash or Clash and I couldn't pick between Slammed and Point of Retreat!! How is a girl to choose when it comes to choices like that?! That is the beauty of making your own lists, you can cheat all you want. [: 
If you somehow have not managed to read any of these then PLEASE LORD check them out!! Because we are going to be assaulted by a whole new group of amazing reads this year and you have to stay on top of reading these books people! Your soul can not afford to miss out on some of these. Honestly, it will make you a better person...or so I like to think. ;]

Well that's it for today. Hopefully my New Years resolutions work themselves out and I hope to be seeing you all a lot this year. Keep those noses in the books where they belong, and please, on all that is swoon-worthy and smexy, keep dreaming in those pages!!

Have a great 2013!
