I've read 18 of the 2012 finalists so far, but I'm not sure that I'll get all of them read by the April 29th deadline. And I'm ok with this. Hopefully I'll take more time to enjoy the books that most appeal to me.
The category I'm completely finished with so far is Romance (this probably doesn't come as a surprise-I'm a sucker for a good, clean romance).
|Lady Outlaw||Of Grace and Chocolate||Smart Move||Twitterpated||Edenbrooke|
|Stacy Henrie*||Krista Lynne Jensen*||Melanie Jacobson||Melanie Jacobson||Julianne Donaldson*|
While I enjoyed all of these books (you can click the titles to see my individual reviews), I absolutely LOVED Edenbrooke! It captured my attention right off, and held it the entire time! The writing is smooth and the story is entertaining (and totally sweet). I also really like how it appeals to a national audience, and does so without any questionable content.
If you are looking for a good book to read, consider picking one of the 2012 Whitney Award finalists.
