Top Ten Books I’m Excited To Read in 2012

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish and features a new top ten list each week.

This week’s topic is Top Ten Books I’m Most Excited to Read This Year (or my top 12 in ’12) In no particular order:

1. Insurgent by Veronica RothCan’t wait to see what’s next for Tris and Four. I am SO ready to read this one.

6. Until I Die by Amy Plum Die for Me was a surprise hit for me, and I’m ready to return to the world of the Revenants.

7. Girl of Nightmares by Kendare Blake – I fell hard for the first book Anna Dressed In Blood and this one looks like another awesome ride.

8. Shine by Jeri Smith-ReadyHow exciting that we’ve reached the end of the trilogy already. And wow this cover took me by surprise.

9. Hallowed by Cynthia Hand – I’m envious of so many who have already read this one, but finally the release date is fast approaching.

10. The Golden Lily by Richelle Mead – I’m eager to read more about Adrian, Jill, and the gang.

And finally special bonus mentions to two highly anticipated books that don’t have covers yet: Isla and the Happily Ever After * by Stephanie Perkins and Rebel Heart by Moira Young.

* Note: Isla and the Happily Ever After has been moved to 2013.

    Awesome looking list, I have a few on my blog as well, some of them I still need to read the first books in the series though.

    Well, I’m behind on reading newer books so I haven’t even read Delirium or Divergent yet! But I am adding Insurgent and Pandemonium to my TBR list along with them!

    Oh oh OH!! Spell bound and Shine and Hallowed and Golden Lily oh great pick!! 🙂 🙂 I love it 🙂

  14. Love you list, Lucy! I wish I could have put Insurgent on mine, but I still haven’t read Divergent! Here’s hoping we can all read everything on our lists this year:)

  15. Totally drawn to Girl of Nightmares before seeing it was written by Kendare Blake! Is it the sequel or a totally different standalone?

    Love the cover of Bitterblue!

      Yes, it is the sequel to Anna Dressed in Blood. Cool cover, isn’t it?

  16. Have already read Pandemonium and think you’ll really enjoy it if you liked Delirium!

    Great list, mine is at YA Yeah Yeah if you’d like to take a look.

    1. Lucy says:

      Yay – glad to hear it, Jim! Hopefully Pandemonium will not be too heart-wrenching. I enjoyed your list too, thanks.

  17. You’ve also got to check out The Fault in Our Stars by John Green! It came out today, but I’ve had an advanced version for months. It is phenomenal! You’ll just love it!

    1. Lucy says:

      I’m glad to hear you loved it! My signed copy arrived today and I’ll be starting on it next. I hear it’s JG’s best yet. Can’t wait!
