Smooch Stop #18

We've double-backed today to our own blog for today's Smooch Stop. And since we're all wrapped up in the year end frenzy, I'm always looking for a good reading escape when I get some down time during the holidays.

It's no secret that the Summer series from Jenny Han were hands down my favorite books so far this year. Tracy and I have phone sessions as least once a week dissecting the nuances of these books and why we loved them so much.

But, much as I loved them I need something new to fawn over so, tell me your favorite book of the year, whether bestseller or little known gem, and why it should be my new favorite, too, and you're entered to win the daily, weekly and grand prize giveaway

We should be back to our regularly scheduled Smooch Stops tomorrow. Sorry for the hiccups.

    just to name a few .. hehehehehehe


  2. Divergent by Veronica Roth
    Tempest Rising by Tracy Deebs!!
    I loved both those books!!! :)

  3. Awww, Samjam, thanks so much! And I LOVED Divergent, too :) Can't wait for Insurgent to come out.

    Book Worm, I love EVERYTHING Nalini Singh writes, but Kiss of Snow is definitely a favorite (Though my all-time favorite is Caressed by Ice)

  4. My fave book of the year was a pleasant surprise to me, as I don't normally read chick lit, but BUILD A MAN by Talli Roland was an awesome read!

  5. Tracy,
    Ditto-everything she writes is amazing. My fave is beast of temptation!


  6. I recently finished The Scorpio Races, and I loved it. It took a while to get into, but then there's so much action, you can't put it down! I think you will also like The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight. It was a short book, and I read an ARC, but it has become one of the best I read this year.
