Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish. I've read it before and now that I have a blog of my own I thought it would be fun to participate.
Top ten books I'm excited to read in 2012:
1. Endlessly by Keirsten White. The third and final book in the Paranormalcy series. Comes out in July. Will Evie stop the evil faeries? I can't wait to find out.
2. Dark Passage by M. J. Putney. The third book in the Dark Mirror series. Comes out this spring. Does it get better than the 1800's, time travel and magic? Yeah, I know it sounds weird, but these are wonderful.
3. The Mark of Athena by Rick Riordan. The third Heroes of Olympus book. Comes out this fall. I spent two (maybe it was three) days reading Son of Neptune out loud to my sister (so we didn't have to fight over who got to read it first). Oh, my, gosh. So funny, so full of adventure, and with great characters. Rick Riordan is one of my favorite authors.
4. The rest of the Leven Thumps series by Obert Skye. Liam of This Page Intentionally Left Blank recommended this series a few weeks ago. I've read the first one and it's hilarious. Leven has to save the World of Foo (the land that allows us in reality to dream) from many dangers, along with a thirteen year old girl, a furry little cross-between-a-rodent-and-an-elf creature named Clover, and a King turned talking toothpick named Geth.
5. Les Miserables by Victor Hugo. I traded two of my assigned reading books for this one. I love being homeschooled, mom is willing to negotiate schoolwork.
6. The third Kane Chronicles by Rick Riordan. Comes out this summer. I don't actually know the name of this one yet.
7. Something by Regina Doman. A friend of mine recommended her to me. She writes modernized fairy tales. And, unlike some I've read, they're clean. Romantic and clean. So much better than books like A Kiss in Time, which not only had a disappointing ending, but also had too many girl-obsessed teenage boys.
8. The Enchantress by Michael Scott. The last (I think) book in The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel series. Comes out in May. The last one had a great cliff hanger at the end, and I really want to see the bad guys taken care of.
9. Mara, Daughter of the Nile by Eloise Jarvis McGraw. Another one a friend recommended. All I know about it is that there's romance and Mara is a double agent.
10. The Black Cat Diamond by myself. Comes out this summer. For obvious reasons.
Hmm, looking at that list, I notice that four of them are number three in a series. Go figure.
