This week’s topic is 10 Books I Am Excited To Read In 2012. Friends, I love a new year because it’s always so full of possibilities. I’ve started doing this list of ten started by Galleysmith’s friend where you pick out books to read ahead of time, and I thought I would share with you 10 books from that list that I am super psyched to read.
1. Game Of Thrones by George RR Martin
I know, I put Game Of Thrones on a list EVERY OTHER WEEK, but you guys I want to keep my nerd card, therefore I WILL read it this year. Preferably this month.
2. Wanderlove by Kirsten Hubbard
Wanderlove has been in my Netgalley queue and I am totally serious about chopping that down to zero.
3. A Thousand Lives by Julia Sheeres
Yo, you know how I love cults? Well A Thousand Lives is all about Jim Jones. Hell yes. I started listening to this yesterday at the gym and it’s SO good. Also, a non-fiction. Yay for variety.
4. 13 Reasons Why by Jay Asher
2012 is my year to be in the know on books that everyone has read except for me, so I am totally going to read 13 Reasons Why because all my friends have read it.
5. Fire by Kristin Cashore
BITTERBLUE is coming out this year, but tragedy! I haven’t read Fire. I’m ready to let my world get rocked by this companion book.
6. Cinder by Melissa Meyer
I’m pretty sure I’ve mentioned why I want to read Cinder in other posts. But Cinderella retellings are things that I am unable to resist.
7. Lovetorn by Kavita Daswani
Betrothals, moving to LA, culture. Hello, Lovetorn is a ME book.
8. Friends With Boys by Faith Erin Hicks
I love graphic novels and basically the plot of Friends With Boys is that Maggie is home schooled, but then goes to high school for the first time and there’s a spooky twist. YAY SPOOKY!
9. Struck by Jennifer Bosworth
Yo, cults. There are cults in this book according to goodreads and bro, I am always down for that.
10. Looking For Alibrandi by Melina Marchetta
Confession: I have not read any books by Melina Marchetta. I know, I know. Looking For Alibrandi seems to be the universal least favorite and I got it for like a penny at the library book sale, so if I don’t love it, I still know it only gets better from there.
