Most awaited reads 2012*

1. The Fault In Our Stars: I love John's writing and I love the vlogbrothers youtube videos, and John has mentioned how much he put into this book working on it for almost ten years.
2. The Book Thief: Every review I've read indicates this is a must for book lovers so I am excited to move it from the wishlist to the read list this year.
3. The Name of the Star: I am reading this already. I just love Maureen and need to read everything by her. I have been getting so bogged down with new books and authors I didn't read any of my favorite authors last year.
4. A Monster Calls: I have been hearing about how wonderful this is so much lately then I saw the illistrations and had to have it.
5. The Thirteenth Tale: Has been sitting on my shelf patiently for a couple years while I read less worthy books, it is time to get it read.
6. The Host: I was encouraged to read this by commentors on another post, another that has been on my shelves for too long.
7. Jane Austen's Lady Susan: An introduction into Jane Austen's work. I have been putting off reading this celebrated author for too long.
8. The Scorpio Races: An introduction into Maggie Stiefvater. I keep reading her blog but still haven't read her books...
9. Slaughterhouse-Five: An introduction into Kurt Vonnegut. I have always found his quotes amusing but never read a full novel.
10. Lola and the Boy Next Door: I loved Anna and the French Kiss, that's the whole reason.

*TBTB Top Ten Tuesday


  1. I have The Fault in our Stars on my list too! Lola is awesome, I loved them it as much as Anna. I'm picking up The Scorpio Races from my library tonight and I'm so excited about that one after it made so many best of 2011 lists last week.

  2. The Host was an interesting read and Slaughterhouse-Five is very... different. It jumps around a lot, but I enjoyed it when I had to read it for a uni english class.

    But, you MUST read LOLA ASAP!!! It's amazing!!

  3. #2 and #5 are fantastic!

    #9 same here - never read a whole one of his books before. I have Breakfast of Champions on audio so I might start with that one.

  4. The Scorpio Races blew me away - I loved everything about it! Stiefvater has a way with words that is just beautiful. Great list!
