Friday Memes: TGIF (15) & Follow Friday (14)

TGIF is hosted by Ginger at Greads!

Best I've Read So Far
We're half way through the year (crazy how time flies!), which top 3 books are the best you've read so far this year?

I kind of answered this for Armchair BEA (read the post here!), but that was definitely more than a Top 3 haha. This was DIFFICULT, you guys.'s baffling how much I debated about this for the week. But as of this very moment, I've settled with these:

Wanderlove by Kirsten Hubbard
Under the Never Sky by Veronica Rossi
Something Like Normal by Trish Doller

(just don't ask me tomorrow, it'll probably change by then!)

What's your best of 2012?
Leave me your link and I'll come check it out!
Follow Friday is hosted by Alison Can Read and Parajunkee's View, meant to spotlight two blogs and allows bloggers to link up and meet other fabulous bookish friends and share the Following love!

This week's spotlight blogs are: Novel Sounds (love this blog!) & Fighting Dreamer

And the question of the week is:
Birthday Wishes -- Blow out the candles and imagine what character could pop out of your cake...who is it and what book are they from?

Well, seeing as how I've just seen a commercial for Magic Mike, we all know where my head is at. Men poppin' out of cakes for me? Sure! Let's get it on!

Peregrine from the Under the Never Sky series by Veronica Rossi.
I adore him, and have you seen him on the cover of Through the Ever Night? He's got that perfect True Blood Stephen Moyer/Bill Compton style rockin' and...I mean. Yes please.

Joe from The Sky is Everywhere by Jandy Nelson. 
As long as he pops out playing his saxophone. Shirtless. And then he recites poetry.

Prince Maxon from The Selection by Kiera Cass
...just as long as it's actually Ethan Peck.

Who would jump out of your cake?
Leave me your link and I'll hop by!
And of course I'd love to return a follow if you are kind enough to follow me :)

PS. Have you entered the giveaway to win a copy of The Unfinished Work of Elizabeth D? Ends tomorrow night!

    I have had Under the Never Sky on my 'check it out already' list for a while now but I keep putting it off. But if there is someone in it worth jumping out of a cake at you I really need to check it out ;)

    I haven't read any of the books you mentioned as your faves - but Under the Never Sky is on my list of books to be read now :-)

  • fakestephJune 29, 2012 at 5:20 AM

    I want to read Wanderlove so bad, but I'm afraid that it will make me sad, because I haven't wandered in so long.

    And the cake question was hard! Also... now I kind of want to eat cake.

  • UnknownJune 29, 2012 at 6:12 AM

    New Follower. I haven't read any of these books. Can't wait for Magic Mike either. :-P

  • JenniferJune 29, 2012 at 7:40 AM

    Yeah for Magic Mike! I really want to read Wanderlove, Something Like Normal, and The Selection. They sound fabulous! Love the Ever Night cover too.

    I can't wait to watch Magic Mike! But on another note, I love that you chose Wanderlove as one of your best reads so far! I read it in 2011 via NetGalley, and I fell in love with the story completely. It definitely makes you want to get up and go somewhere exotic!

  • KateJune 29, 2012 at 12:57 PM

    Great choices! I am a new follower on GFC and Linky. Here is my Follow Friday
