There once was an awesome blogger named Ginger and she decided to create a super fun feature where fellow bloggers would answer fabulous questions via blog posts every Friday. TGIF was born and we all have Miss Ginger at GReads! to thank for that! This week’s question is:
2012 Must Reads:
Which books are at the top of your list to be read this year (new or old releases)?
If I were to answer this question fully, you guys would be here for days reading over the titles I am most looking forward to! There are a ton of books, lots of new ones and even more old ones, that I want to read hopefully this year. I wish I could move every book to the top of my TBR list but I have not figured out where to obtain those super human powers yet!
I guess first and foremost, the top books on my TBR list this year are my review books! Right now I still have a huge pile of books (hard-copies and e-books) that need to be read for reviews. I will be the very first to admit that I sucked it up near the end of 2011. I am working my butt off trying to catch up on all my review books and so far it is kind of working! (Key-phrasing in that last sentence of course being “kind of”) Some of these titles that needed to be read like yesterday are:
Dark Days by C.A. Kunz
All These Things I’ve Done by Gabrielle Zevin
Trade Secrets by Yvonne Collins and Sandy Rideout
The Knife and the Butterfly by Ashley Hope Perez
Now there is the list of books that I own but have really not been read yet. I am officially (as of a few days ago) on a book buying ban. I really, really, really want to get through a few titles before I buy more books. The goal is that for every five “older” books that I read, I am allowed to purchase ONE book. I may have to remind myself of this rule a few thousand times but I hope it works because I now have 162 titles to work through! Some of the books at home that I want to read super bad are:
Sirenz by Natalie Zaman and Charlotte Bennardo
Shade by Jeri Smith-Ready
Queen of the Dead by Stacey Kade
A Touch Mortal by Leah Clifford
Ten Things We Did (and Probably Shouldn’t Have) by Sarah Mlynowski
Last on the list are the books I have for my challenges this coming up year! I have already mentioned several times how excited I am to actually complete all the challenges I signed up for so naturally I am pumped to read all of the books! You can check out the full list of books I hope to read on my 2012 Challenges tab but a few of the titles I can’t wait for are:
Forgiven by Janet Fox
Welcome, Caller, This Is Chloe by Shelley Coriell
Of Poseidon by Anna Banks
The Day Before by Lisa Schroeder
Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson
Angus, Thongs, and Full-Frontal Snogging by Louise Rennison
