March Top 5

March was a busy month for me. I worked a ton and spent quite a bit of time working on applications and searching for a future. Compared to February, I've read so little. But there were some really amazing books in there. If you want to see my list of books read this month you can click on the "Read in 2012" tab - but here are the ones I've chosen as my top five reads for this month.

1. The Selection by Kiera Cass
I'm obsessed. OBSESSED. I read the book and then spent the rest of the day looking at pictures from the cast and the set. I so hope the CW picks up this show because I need fuel for my obsession. I'm just so in love with these characters. I'll have a review up soon - and the book will be released on April 24 and I HIGHLY recommend that you pick it up!

2. Pandemonium by Lauren Oliver
Oh my gosh. Delirium was great, but Pandemonium blew me away. It was so good, so intense, and if possible this ending was way more cruel than the first book, which, who knew that was even possible? Read my review here

3. A Touch Morbid by Leah Clifford
Same thing with the Delirium series. I really liked A Touch Mortal, but in A Touch Morbid, Leah Clifford really upped her game. Plus, the Luke-Kristen story that develops here - um, I'd like more of that please. Read my review here

4. Wanderlove by Kirsten Hubbard
I've travelled quite a bit and this book just captures the magic of discovering new places perfectly. It makes you want to get up and go find friends, see awesome things, gather experiences. Read my review here

5. Dreamless by Josephine Angelini 
Well, this isn't out until the end of May, but once I had a copy, no way was I waiting. And holy wow, it was just as epic as Starcrossed. I'm so in awe of this series. Awesome awesome awesome. I'll have a review up in a couple weeks.

And my honorable mentions (because these books rocked my face off too).

  6. My favorite this month was Croak by Gina Damico. It was the funniest book I think I've ever read.
    I still want to read the Selection and I too hope it makes to the CW.
