Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme created by the Broke and the Bookish where a new top ten list is posted each week. This week is: Top Ten Books I'm Excited To Read in 2012. I'm splitting this week into two Top Fives - one of books that I'm excited to read in 2012 and one of books with a 2012 release date that I'm excited for.
I've been hearing awesome things about this for months and despite the fact I've never really been a big Romeo and Juliet fan (seriously they're 13 and it takes place over a week - talk about insta-love!) I'm really looking forward to it. This has been picked as a group read in a Goodreads group I belong to so hopefully I'll get to it this month.
2. Across the Universe by Beth Revis
Other than occasionally glaring at my copy for being the UK paperback not the awesome double-covered US hardback, this is a book I was lusting after for ages before I got a copy. I can't wait to get reading!
3. Glass Houses by Rachel Caine
The Morganville Vampires is one series that I'm freakishly behind on. I have the first 11 books waiting to be read and I have no idea why it's taken me this long. I love the author's writing and have enjoyed all of her other books. I'm about to start a buddy read today so hopefully I'll enjoy it.
I'm totally psyched that I finally have my own copy of this. So far all I've done is stroke the gorgeous cover and flick through the pages but I
5. Divergent by Veronica Roth
I have only heard awesome things about this book. I haven't managed to read it yet though (no idea why). The Totally Booksessed youtube channel just did Book Oscars and this kept winning them over and over - best debut, best hero, best heroine and best dystopian!
This is the final book in the Outcast Season series and I've been waiting for it for what feels like forever. I read the first book as soon as it was released to find the biggest cliffhanger ever (it's like the book just ran out of pages) so I decided to wait until the series was complete before reading further.
7. Fair Game by Patricia Briggs
Patricia Briggs is one of those authors I have loved for years. This is the third and newest release in her Alpha and Omega series which I love. It's a bit more romance focused than her Mercy Thompson series but I fell in love with the characters and love seeing things from Anna's perspective.
8. Fever by Lauren DeStefano
Probably one that is on a lot of lists this week. I adored Wither and that ending? Well lets just say I'm hooked and desperate to know what happens next for Rhine. The whole dystopian world is incredibly well developed and deeply creepy.
9. Thirteen by Kelley Armstrong
The last Otherworld novel *sniff*. Bitten was one of the first urban fantasy books I read and it really hooked me to the genre. I'm waaaay behind on the series but I'll be reading and re-reading them all this year in preparation for this.
10. Hush, Hush book 4 by Becca Fitzpatrick
No title, no picture but one that I can't wait for! I only read the first three Hush, Hush books last year and I loved them. It took me a while to really like Patch though (literally until the third book!) so I'm looking forward to reading about him again. Also you just know the cover is going to be gorgeous!
