Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish. This meme was created because they are particularly fond of lists at The Broke and the Bookish. Participators in this meme love to share our lists with other bookish folks and would LOVE to see your top ten lists!
Each week we will post a new Top Ten list complete with one of our bloggers answers. Everyone is welcome to join. All we ask is that you link back to The Broke and the Bookish on your own Top Ten Tuesday post AND sign Mister Linky at the bottom to share with us and all those who are participating. If you don't have a blog, just post your answers as a comment. Don't worry if you can't come up with ten every time.. just post what you can!
This week: The Top Ten books we are anticipating for 2011. Oh, wow, I am loving this one!
1. Where She Went by Gayle Forman (04.05.2011)
Mia broke my heart, and I need it back! I cannot tell how badly I want to read this one, and I probably don't have to, since I know you are aching to get your hands on it, too! I very much am looking forward to hearing things from Adam's head. <sigh> It's a long wait until April.
2. This Side of the Grave by Jeaniene Frost (02.22.2011)
Ummm, if you visit my blog with any sort of regularity, you know I am positively gaga over the Night Huntress series. I really do need a new paranormal/UF series to tie me over, so if you have anything that can compare with the glory that is Bones, I am all eyes!
3. Dead Reckoning by Charlaine Harris (05.26.2011)
I've been following Sookie & Co. for a while now. In fact, this, the Night Huntress series, and the Dragon Sept books by Katie MacAlister are about the only non-YA that I read at the moment. Super excited about this one since the series looks like it's getting close to a end. I love Eric, but I am pro-Sam for HEA.
4. Like Mandarin by Kirsten Hubbard (03.08.2011)
I've seen nothing but stellar reviews on this one. It seems to be a heavy book, and I love those. I typically am not a light, quick read kind of girl, and this one seems like it will hang on you for a while.
5. Unearthly by Cynthia Hand (01.04.2011)
I usually am not into 'angel' books, but if I see a ton of good reviews out, of course I have to give it a shot!
6. Tighter by Adele Griffin (05.10.011)
This looks like a good ghost story, and I have loved those ever since I was little. Plus, the cover looks rad.
7. Wolfsbane by Andrea Cremer
Loved looooooved Nightshade! Andrea has serious writing chops, and I loved what she did with the traditional werewolf myth! Plus, she added in political philosophy and history - right up my alley!
8. Wither by Lauren DeStefano (03.22.2011)
I've read so many excellent reviews on this, and it has a very dystopian feel to it with an FDLS dash - I really, really can't wait for this one. That cover is amazing.
9. Abandon by Meg Cabot (04.26.2011)
Again, beautiful cover and check out the synopsis when you get the chance! Sounds fascinating!
10. XVI by Julia Karr (01.06.2011)
Oh my ewww, just read the description - this one gives me the heebie-jeebies, so I have to read it!
