Top Ten Tuesday: Books I'm Excited to Read in 2012

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Every week focuses on a different topic and you make a top ten list from it! This week: Top Ten Books I'm Looking Forward to in 2012

1. Ghost Flower by Michele Jaffe
-It's got a ghost.

2. Struck by Jennifer Bosworth
-This book sounds right up my alley.

3. Revived by Cat Patrick
-I had one issue with Forgotten, but not enough to keep me away from this book. Cat Patrick's writing is fantabulous.

4. For Darkness Shows the Stars by Diana Peterfreund
-Love her Rampant series and am very excited to see Diana go in a different direction.

5. Where It Began by Ann Redisch Stampler
-Being familiar with her picture books, I am very excited to see Ann delve into YA fiction.

6. I Hunt Killers by Barry Lyga
-I want this book. I need this book. I love dark twisted stories. It sounds different from any other YA book I've read.

7. Insurgent by Veronica Roth
-Yes, please.

8. Rebel Heart by Moira Young
-LOVED Blood Red Road and can't wait for the second one.

9. The untitled Daughter of Smoke and Bone #2 by Laini Taylor
-Hopefully it comes out this year. It's set to, though there's no news of it yet. PLEASE!!

10. 52 Reasons to Hate My Father by Jessica Brody
-It just sounds cute and I'll probably need a break from all of the dystopian/dark stuff coming out this year.

What are you looking forward to??


  1. Hi Angie,

    I'm so happy that you're looking forward to Where It Began! I'm still doing PB folklore (The Wooden Sword, an Afghan folktale, is out March 1.) But I would appear to have leaped from ancient stories rooted in religious values to sex, drugs, and rock and role in contemporary L.A. in a single bound. So be prepared for something very, very different!

    Happy New Year!


  2. Love the list! I'm looking forward to Insurgent too (although I have yet to read Divergent)!

  3. Can't wait for Insurgent too, such an awesome book Divergent is.


  4. Struck sounds great. Never heard of I hunt killers but now I really need it. Adding to tbr shelf now.


Thank-you for commenting! I always appreciate and read each one! I also try to reply to each one, but I'm really bad at this, so I apologize in advance for one (or any) I may miss. Please note, I love all of my commenters. In fact, it may be more like "in love." Comment at your own risk.
