A weekly meme hosted by the Broke and the Bookish
This weeks topic is supposed to be Favorite New-to-Me Authors I Read in 2012, but I couldn’t narrow it down at all, because over 2/3 of the books I’ve read this year were by new authors! Plus, I somehow forgot to post last week, so I’m going with last weeks topic: Books I Wouldn’t Mind Santa Bringing!
10. Across the Universe Trilogy by Beth Revis
Is it too much to ask that Shades of Earth be released a month early? Plus I want a pretty matching set!
9. Divergent Series by Veronica Roth
I’m dying to read Insurgent, and in the mean time I don’t even own Divergent!
8. The Giver Quartet by Lois Lowry
The Giver was a life-changing book, and with Son just being released and this gorgeous new cover design, I think it’s about time I owned all of them.
7. The Princess Bride by William Goldman
Since I was four, this has been my favorite movie! And after literally years of searching for it, I haven’t been able to track it down! Maybe Santa can (:
6. The Sweetest Spell by Suzanne Selfors
I’ve been wanting to read this one for probably at least a year. I mean, it’s the ugly duckling only with teenage girls and chocolate cows. What’s not to love?
5. The Hero’s Guide to Saving Your Kingdom by Christopher Healy
Another one I’ve wanted all year! The name and cover together are creating in my brain a strange mix between Shrek, How to Train Your Dragon, and Happily Never After. Sounds like fun, huh?
4. Tiger Lily by Jodi Lynn Anderson
A dark prequel to Peter Pan that I don’t think I can’t wait much longer to read! It just sounds amazing, but not like the usual fluffy retelling you usually run into.
3. The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
Random book I really want to read! For the longest time I didn’t even know what it was about, and although I usually tend to avoid depressing books, this is supposedly one of the best Young Adult books ever written, so, as a Young Adult, I should probably check it out.
2. Origin by Jessica Khoury
Do you know just how in love I am with this cover? I really really really want to read Origin. Probably more than almost any other book out right now.
1. Les Miserables Tickets!
Yep! I’m going to be one of those people who ditches their family on Christmas Day to go see Les Miserables! If Santa doesn’t bring me tickets, I’ll go get them myself!
