Welcome to the third day of The Non Reluctant Reader Best of 2012 Awards! Today's topic...
Top Ten Settings of 2012
2012 has delivered us to spectacular, amazing year that has transported us to exciting worlds! Here are the best settings!

Shadow and Bone (The Grisha, #1)
Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo
The world of Shadow and Bone has a landscape that is both dark and beautiful!
Of Poseidon (Of Poseidon, #1)
Of Poseidon by Anna Banks
The water-y world of Of Poseidon is simply the best. Plus, Anna Banks has the key to my heart when she throws a bit of Titanic in there for us.
Falling Kingdoms (Falling Kingdoms, #1)
Falling Kingdoms by Morgan Rhodes
The three kingdoms of Falling Kingdoms are all so grand and cool!
Dreamless (Starcrossed, #2)
Dreamless by Josephine Angelini
Nantucket, Massachusetts makes for an excellent background for a war between the gods!
 Until I Die (Revenants, #2)
Until I Die by Amy Plum
Ah, Paris... with zombie angels.
Girl of Nightmares (Anna, #2)
Girl of Nightmares by Kendare Blake
Hell... and Scotland... and hell... and Scotland... and awesome.
Velveteen (Velveteen, #1)
Velveteen by Daniel Marks
Velveteen's purgatory setting is so bleak and well described and masterly written.
The Crown of Embers (Fire and Thorns, #2)
Crown of Embers by Rae Carson
High fantasy kingdoms described at their best!
Demon Eyes (Witch Eyes, #2)
Demon Eyes by Scott Tracey
Scott Tracey takes the town where I live and make it ten times more evil. I love it.

Alternate history New England makes for an beautiful haunting backdrop.
