Top Ten Books I'm Excited to Read in 2012

This week's Top Ten Tuesday, hosted by The Broke and the Bookish as always, is a look at which books we're most excited to read in 2012.

1. Insurgent by Veronica Roth. This was my personal pick for The Broke and the Bookish (which you can check out by clicking the link above). Roth's Divergent was so refreshingly different as far as YA dystopian, and I'm excited to see where her story will go.

2. Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins. No, I haven't read it yet. But I will. And I'm sure I'll enjoy it.

3. The Fault in Our Stars by John Green. Thinking back on it, this should have been my personal pick for TB&TB. Everything John Green writes is gold, and this is sure to be a winner. Also, I'm super excited about seeing him on January 10 in Wellesley! Yay!!

4. Will Grayson, Will Grayson by John Green and David Levithan. See above. I need to read this.

5. An Abundance of Katherines by John Green. See above.

6. Monsters of Men by Patrick Ness. I can't believe I haven't already read the final book in the Chaos Walking trilogy, but I will make it happen this year.

7. Moon Over Manifest by Clare Vanderpool. This won the Newbery Award the previous year, so I have to read it.

8. The Future of Us by Jay Asher and Carolyn Mackler. I have had this ARC since my friend picked it up for me at BEA. I really liked 13 Reasons Why by Asher, and I have the feeling I'll like Mackler's writing too.

9. Anna Dressed in Blood by Kendare Blake. I've heard so many great things about this one. It's waiting for me in my car; I took it out of the library and is overdue. But I'll get to it. I swear!

10. If I Stay by Gayle Forman. People have been raving about this one for forever. I bought it a while ago, but I still haven't set aside time to read it. This year will be the year!

What are your picks?


  1. I like how diverse your list is -- with new and old releases. I need to get to Monsters of Men this year as well but I'm still traumatized by Knife of Never Letting Go, ha ha.

  2. A great variety of books. I have many of them on my TBR.

  3. Great list... I have read quite a few of them and you won't be disappointed!

  4. John Green is awesome. I preordered The Fault in Our Stars quite a few months ago. Will Grayson is really really good.
