Best of 2012 list....

I was thinking back on last year and thought I would do my own "Best Of" list.......
 Best Books of 2012
4. Firefly Lane
I loved this book about 2 friends navigating thru life together while remaining in each others lives. This was a wonderful read spanning decades you should give it a chance....I think everyone can relate to this book and the characters.
 3. Bond Girl
 This book is smart, witty, fun and it reminds me of the Devil Wears Prada meets the stock market! This could easily be a cute movie and I just loved this book! Pure fun....
 2. Gone Girl
This is the book everyone has been talking about this year and I totally get it! This is about a marriage, a death, a scandal and it is full of mystery. You will want to keep reading as fast as you can to find out what happens next!
 1. Winter Garden
This book is hands down the best book I read all year.....it was like stepping straight into the novel and actually living the main characters life. You can read my review here!!! Let me know if you read this book, it is amazing!
Best Movies of 2012
5. Twilight Breaking Dawn part 2
It isn't very often that I want to see a movie several times over in the theater but BD pulled me in and didn't let go. I thought this was a perfect ending to the series and I was left feeling complete. Loved this movie!
 4. Hunger Games
I LOVED this movie! I thought this movie adaption was perfect and Jennifer Lawrence is the perfect Katniss! I have watched this movie at home so many times over again and I am counting down the days until the next movie!
 3. Machine Gun Preacher
This movie came out of nowhere.....it was never at the theater and I took a chance renting it On Demand..... And I fell in love. You can read my full review by clicking HERE! This movie had a purpose, it told a story about redemption and I couldn't look away. This movie made me go out and buy the book it was that good. This is a movie with a message. And this movie also made me forgive Gerald Butler for "Playing for Keeps"
2. Rock of Ages
When I saw this movie in May it was like the mother ship calling me home. From the very first scene this movie had me singing in my seat and I loved every moment of this! This movie is pure fun and it is filled with everything I love......rock, dancing, the 80s and cheesy 1-liners! Love it!
1. Dark Knight Rises
All the movies on my list are so different and this movie is a huge leap in the opposite direction from Rock of Ages .....but there wasn't a better movie this year. This movie was a work of art. Christopher Nolen has a gift for telling a story filled with emotion, action and twists. This movie left me thinking and I have seen it 3 more times since. This movie is amazing! Another perfect ending to the series .....or is it?
What was your favorites of 2012? I will give a honorable mention to The Avengers!!!
