5. Over the Edge by Mary Connealy

1. No question about it, my FAVORITE read of 2012 was... 

*drum roll*

Corridor (A MythWorks Novel)
Corridor by Robin Parrish! I even read it twice this year and definitely plan on rereading it a lot more. :)

      I waited a long time to finally reading Julie Lessman's books, but I finally read the Daughters of Boston series, A Love Surrendered, and A Light in the Window last year. They were all great! :)

  8. I just saw another blog with Tributary on a Best of 2012 list! I've only read the first two books so far, but am planning on getting to the third eventually!

  9. Bless you, Melanie, for being so generous with your time and talents and sharing our work, too:) Wish I had a million more Melanies!!
