I'll list my top three reads for 2012 so far, as I am at work and am trying to fit in a little blogging time quickly. :D
by Sarah Rees Brennan
This book is so much fun, with great witty writing, and an intriguing premise. There is lots of suspense, and did I mention the witty writing? So many laugh-out-loud lines, that the whole thing kept me entertained from beginning to end. The cliffhanger at the end is going to make you wish you had waited to read this book though, because I wish the next in this series was in my hand today!

Anna and the French Kiss
by Stephanie Perkins
Another fun read; really sweet and romantic. I do have a fondness for the French language and the idea of Paris (have never visited but I plan to!) so this book was a perfect getaway read, and it gives one all sorts of warm fuzzy feelings.
by Mark Frost
There was action and adventure packed into every page of this book, making it so very hard to put down. The writing is very tight, with many mysteries unfolding as well as new ones being developed. Many of the kids had different "powers" and since it is set at a school, I felt like this book had some definite Harry Potter-ish vibes.
