The last day of the countdown, folks! I’ll be back from my break next week. I couldn’t end this countdown without including these next two books.
THE LIAR SOCIETY by Lisa and Laura Roecker
If you can’t tell I’m a big fan of humor balanced by a great plot and a moving story. And this story is exactly what I love to read. And yes, I loved this book. Can’t wait for the sequel.
UNCOMMON CRIMINALS by Ally Carter
I had to group these two books together. Funny. Terrific plotting. But most of all, an inner journey of the main character that counts. Ally Carter pulls off what is hard to do: balancing the humorous with the serious.
Hope you enjoyed my countdown! I’ll be back next week. Don’t get me wrong. I loved many many books that I didn’t mention. This has been a great year of reading for me. But, for some reason, the books I mentioned stayed with me.
Now the question is -what are the most anticipated books of 2012.
I just borrowed Heist Society by Ally Carter from the library, and I’m very excited to read it. I’ve heard such great things about Carter’s books! I want to read the Liar Society, too – I’ve also heard fantastic things about that one.
Thanks for sharing your favorite books with us! It brought to mind a lot of books I have seen throughout the year, made a mental note to read, and then promptly forgot about. Now I have them securely on my Goodreads “to read” shelf!
Loved following your countdown! Reminded me of so many lovely books that I missed…but still hope to get to!
Can’t even think about the new ones, yet!!
I’ve really enjoyed you countdown. Those books are on my to-read list. I hope I can get to them in 2012. One of my goals is to read more. It’s good that I can read while on the exercise equipment–because that’s a goal, too. lol
Happy New Year!
Thank you for the countdown. It helped me focus my TBR list. I’m anxious to read A MILLION SUNS by Beth Revis. Happy reading and writing in 2012.
Thanks, Laura, for showing us some great new books to check out!!
May the New Year ahead be full of wonderful surprises for you and yours!!
I just read The Liar Society last week, and I LOVED it. It was such a fun read. I too am counting down to the sequel.
I loved The Liar Society too! 🙂
