Top Reads of the Year

A lot of folks are doing their year round up, so I figured I would share, so here are my top picks of the year (NOT IN ORDER!) are--

YA
House of Dead Maids--Clare Dunkle*** Top YA Pick
Divergent--Veronica Roth*** Top YA Pick
White Cat--Holly Black
Heist Society--Ally Carter
Raised By Wolves--Jennifer Lynn Barnes
Across the Universe--Beth Revis
Matched--Ally Condie
The Poisoned House--Michael Ford
Clockwork Angel--Cassandra Clare
Rise of Renegade X--Chelsea Campbell

MG
NOTE: In MG, there were 3 that stood out.  I don't read as much MG, but these 3 were addictively good.
Incorrigible Children of Ashton Place--Maryrose Wood
Rise of the Darklings--Paul Crilley (Victorian, faery, adventure) *sighs* 
The Search for WondLa-- Tony DiTerlizzi

Adult:
Darling Jim-- Christian Moerk  ***Easily my favourite book in a long time. I absolutely devoured this. His use of narrative structure and narrative timeline . . . *shivers in glee* Serial killer, storyteller, & some truly unlikeable characters with layered structure that made me re-read. LOVE.
The Sorcerer's House--Gene Wolfe

All Ages
Pegasus--Robin McKinley
