Top Ten Books I'm Excited To Read in 2012

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.

Top Ten Books I'm Excited To Read in 2012

1) Bitterblue by Kristin Cashore: Graceling and Fire were amazing and from what I've been hearing, this one is just the same, maybe even better! Either way, I can't wait to slip back into the world of The Seven Kingdoms this May!
2) Chosen Ones by Tiffany Truitt: I love pretty covers and Chosen Ones defientely posses one of those! Plus it doesn't hurt that the plot sounds pretty amazing as well. 
3) When You Were Mine by Rebecca Serle: From the summary of this one, it sounds like a twist on Romeo and Juliet with some pretty awesome new additions!
4) Reunited by Hilary Weisman Graham: I adore road trip books so this one looks like just the kind of book I'll end up loving! 
5) My Life Next Door by Huntley Fitzpatrick: I can't get over how awesome this one sounds! Hopefully it will end up being as good as it looks!
6) Something Like Normal by Trish Doller: I've been waiting for Trish to have a book released for what seems like ages now, so I was so happy when the news broke about Something Like Normal, especially since it sounds pretty darn amazing!
7) Pushing the Limits by Katie McGarry: Another fabulous sounding Harlequin Teen book with an equally awesome cover! Plus the early praise for this one goodreads makes it sound even better than I've been expecting. NEED.THIS.ONE.NOW. 
8) Flirting in Italian by Lauren Henderson: From the title and summary this one sounds like the perfect pool side read! 
9) Through To You by Emily Hainsworth: Described as a romantic sci-fi, this one sounds like yet another great book for me! And I can't wait to see the cover for it!
10) Level 2 by Lenore Appelhans: Lenore's book blog was one of the blogs that orginally inspired me to start Lauren's Crammed Bookshelf, and over the years, Presenting Lenore has become a favorite blog of mine, so there's no question about whether or not I'll be reading this one!  

To find out what other books I'm looking forward to reading in 2012, head on over to my 2012 goodreads shelf here. What are YOU looking forward to reading in '12? Anything that I listed above?! Let me know in the comments below, and feel free to share your TTT link below! :)


  1. ooo! Now I'm excited for BITTERBLUE, too! I loved GRACELING, but I haven't read FIRE yet - guess that will have to tide me over for now!

  2. YES LEVEL TWO. I'm the most excited to read Lenore's novel. And Bitterblue, too, but I want to try and actually read Fire first.

  3. I also thought Something Like Normal looks really good. A couple others I'm especially looking forward to? This Is So Not Happening, by Kieran Scott (finally, the last book of the he's so/she's so trilogy); Who I Kissed, by Janet Gurtler (loved her first two, and this one has an intriguing premise - a girl kisses a boy she barely knows, after she eats a peanut sandwich, not knowing he has severe allergies -he dies, and obvs she has probs with regrets and relationship after that) and finally Welcome Caller, This is Chloe, by Shelley Coriell sounds really cute and touching, too. A former queen bee type is ostracized and ends up doing a call in show on the school radio station, where problems ensue, and she meets a mysterious indie loner dude (that guy gets around!). Anyway thanks for your recs, you always find such good books! Look forward to checking them out!

  4. Something Like Normal is going to be so awesome. I'm excited too!

  5. I hadn't heard of many of these but I would love to get my hands on a copy on some of them after reading the descriptions. Thanks for introducing them to me! I'm now following you :)

  6. Hey Lauren! Thanks for your kind words (I'm blushing!) and for including LEVEL 2 and so many other debuts on your list :) Hope you have a great reading year!!

  7. Awesome Top Ten list, Lauren! I'm so looking forward to all of these, especially Through To You and Bitterblue.

    2012 is going to be an insanely amazing book year :)
