Top Ten Books I'm Excited to Read in 2012

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish. There is a new subject each week and this week's topic is "Top Ten Books I'm Excited to Read in 2012". 

1. Insurgent by Veronica Roth

Considering that Divergent was my favorite book of 2011, this is the book I am most anticipating for 2012. 

2. The Crown of Embers by Rae Carson

I can't wait to see what happens next for Elisa after the surprising events in The Girl of Fire and Thorns.

3. A Million Suns by Beth Revis

I know this is going to be a suspenseful story and I am glad I don't have to wait much longer for it...

4. Out of Sight, Out of Time by Ally Carter

This is such a fun series and I am glad there is going to be a new book this spring. I like the Gallagher Girls books more than the Heist Society ones maybe because I like the idea of a school for spies :)

5. Spellbound by Rachel Hawkins

Demonglass ended with such a major cliffhanger that I am eager to read this book to find out what happens.

6. The Golden Lily by Richelle Mead

While Bloodlines didn't live up to the Vampire Academy series, I still enjoyed it and the return of a favorite character for The Golden Lily makes me want to read it more.

7. Ripper by Amy Carol Reeves

I am looking forward to Ripper because I love historical fiction and because I know the author (she was a college classmate). I think the idea of combining Jack the Ripper and the paranormal is an interesting premise.

8. The Mark of Athena by Rick Riordan

I loved The Son of Neptune and Rick Riordan's books are always fun to read. The Mark of Athena brings Annabeth and Camp Half Blood back into the picture along with Percy so I have a feeling this will be a page-turner!

9. Dearly, Beloved by Lia Habel

I was very impressed with Dearly, Departed so I am excited about the sequel. Bram and Nora are fantastic characters and I can't wait to read more!

10. Taken By Storm by Jennifer Lynn Barnes

I have become a fan of Jennifer Lynn Barnes and this series in particular so I know I will enjoy Taken By Storm. While I'm waiting, I should go back and try some of her older books!

Honorable mention:

Timeless by Gail Carriger
Shadowfell by Juliet Marillier
A Breath of Eyre by Eve Marie Mont
Hidden by Sophie Jordan
The Savage Grace by Bree Despain

What books are you excited to read this year?


  1. Great picks! I want all of these, too ;)

  2. Such a great list!!! I am SO looking forward to Spellbound and The Golden Lily! I still need to read Divergent and Across the Universe. I have a lot of catching up to do! :)

  3. I can't wait to read Spell Bound after that cliffhanger-that is definitely on of my top picks for the year!

  4. Some popular choices there, enjoy.

  5. I am so excited about The Mark of Athena. I think this is going to be the best book of the series! I have a bunch of the same books on my list, so I think your list great.

  6. I am very curious about what will happen in The Crown of Embers - that is likely going to be interesting and exciting.

    Fabulous list, Christina! :)
