Books I’m Excited to Read in 2012


Top Ten Tuesdays is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. As lovers of books and of lists, they post a list each week. Check it out for other lists, and to link up your own list there.

This week’s topic is:

The Top Ten Books I’m Excited to Read in 2012

Sometimes I have trouble getting a full ten books on my list, this time I think I’ll have trouble narrowing it down!

SomethingStrangeandDeadlybig 10. Something Strange and Deadly by Susan Dennard-An army of the dead loose in Philadelphia, and it sounds like it’s set around 1900.





Enchanted 9. Enchanted by Alethea Kontis-A retelling of the Frog Prince by a debut author!






Cursed 8. Cursed by Jennifer Armentrout-Ember died in a car accident, after her sister somehow brought her back, Ember’s touch makes things die.  Now she’s on a no touch policy, and realizing that the car accident may not have been an accident after all.  Cursed reminds me of the TV show Pushing Daisies, so I can’t wait to read it!


Selection 7. The Selection by Kiera Cass-Sounds like a dystopian version of the bachelor :)  35 girls competing to marry the prince, while rebels attack the castle.





6. Princess of the Silver Woods by Jessica Day George-No cover yet

Hallowed 5. Hallowed by Cynthia Hand-Sequel to Unearthly (the best Angel book I’ve read).






Erasing Time 4. Erasing Time by C. J. Hill-I don’t know anything about this book except that the cover looks cool, and it’s written by C.J. Hill (Janette Rallison) who’s one of my favorite authors of all time!




Revived 3. Revived by Cat Patrick-I loved Cat’s book, Forgotten, which came out last year.  Revived isn’t a sequel, but another stand alone book.  It’s about a future in which there’s a drug called revive (used by a secret government agency) that can bring people back from the dead.  I’m thinking sci-fi meets psychological thriller meets romance.


Until I Die 2. Until I Die by Amy Plum-Sequel to Die for Me, my favorite paranormal read of 2011.






Insurgent 1. Insurgent by Veronica Roth-Sequel to Divergent.  Need I say more?




What are you excited about reading this year?


  1. Hallowed <3 <3!! Can't wait! And also Until I die!! And Insurgent! Too many great books! :)

  2. Great list. I hadn't heard of Erasing Time before now but I agree about that cover and I totally just added it to my Goodreads list!

    Great selection of books this week and happy reading!

  3. The Selection looks awesome, and as a big fan of Pushing Daisies, Cursed sounds very cool!

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

  4. Can't wait for Insurgent! It's not on this week's list, but I am also excited for Revived. I will definitely be looking in to some of the others you've mentioned. Here is my list http://wp.me/pzUn5-JE
