One of my goals for 2012 was to read 50 books. Right now, I’m on book number 47! You can see all of the books I’ve read this year and last year here. You can also see my post on my favorite books of 2011 here.

The following books are my top 10 favorite books I’ve read in 2012:

9. Interpersonal Conflict – William Wilmont & Joyce Hocker (This was actually one of my textbooks last semester. I loved it that much!)interpersonalconflict

8. The Vow: The True Events that Inspired the Movie – Kim & Krickitt Carpenter (The movie based on this book came out around Valentine’s Day. It’s actually a true story and the couple in the book are Christians. It’s truly a crazy and amazing story!!)thevow

7. The Pregnancy Project: A Memoir – Gaby Rodriguez (This is another true and crazy story!  This book was also made into a movie.)thepregnancy

Have you read any good books this year?! Please share!


  1. I’ve been slacking on my reading but I’ve started the “Lucas Davenport” series and just finished “Gone Girl” which was a real page turner!

  2. Whoa, 47 books? Girl, that is awesome! I love to read, but I never get a chance to read as much as I’d like to. I am always looking for some good book recommendations though, so thanks for sharing these!

  3. I read Kisses from Katie…AMQZING! I got to go to Africa this past June for the whole month on a mission trip. I can’t wait to go back! I think you would live Being the girl God sees by Natalie Grant, Running for my life by Lopez Lomang, and Lauren Scruggs still Lolo- reading it now and it is unreal awesome!!! I like true, inspirational stories.

  4. I can’t wait to check some of these out! I LOVE reading! I bought that Save Me book awhile ago and was surprised to find that I didn’t like it…lol. Do you own it? If not, let me know and I’ll mail you my copy–you can keep it!

  5. The Pregnancy Project sounds like a really good read! I’ll have to download that asap 🙂

    My favorite two books were The Hunger Games & Running for Women.

  6. Love that a textbook made it to the list! I love when a class really hits home/resonates, and you actually get something out of it–like a new favorite book, topic or idea!

  7. We read 5 Love Languages while dating in college and it has blessed our relationship ever since. It helps us show love to each other better. 🙂 Also, The Pregnancy Project sounds really intriguing! I added it to my to-read list! 🙂
