Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish. This feature was created because we are particularly fond of lists here at The Broke and the Bookish. We’d 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 that one of our bloggers here at The Broke and the Bookish will answer. Everyone is welcome to join.
This week’s theme: Top Ten Books Usagi’s excited to read in 2011!
Goes without saying – for many of the #2s and #3s/series books it’s because I loved the first and second books, or these are books that look too awesome for me to pass up. In no particular order:
1. “Pandemonium (Delirium #2)” by Lauren Oliver: Currently reading “Delirium” right now and I LOVE it. I can’t wait for this!
2. “Fever (Chemical Garden #2)” by Lauren DeStefano: Loved the first book, can’t wait to see where the story goes!
3. “A Million Suns (Across the Universe #2)” by Beth Revis: Ugh, three weeks away seems too long to wait!
4. “Dreamless (Starcrossed #2)” by Josephine Angelini: Probably my most anticipated outside of the sci-fi/dystopian bunch of sequels.
5. “Insurgent (Divergent #2)” by Veronica Roth: Definitely my most anticipated dystopian release! Ugh, so delicious.
6. “The Masque of the Red Death” by Bethany Griffin: Plagues and futuristic steampunky debauchery clubs? Yes please.
7. “Altered” by Jennifer Rush: Being pitched to be “Prison Break” meets “Dollhouse” for the YA crowd. As I love (well, I adore “Dollhouse”!) both those shows, I’m pretty psyched about this.
8. “For the Darkness Shows the Stars” by Diana Peterfreund: I’m not a huge Jane Austen fan (“Persuasion” is used as a basis for this book), but this looks like a really awesome futuristic book, so I’m pretty interested in it.
9. As yet untitled sequel to “Daughter of Smoke & Bone” by Laini Taylor: Ridiculously excited for this!
10. “The Girl With The Clockwork Collar (Steampunk Chronicles #2)” by Kady Cross: Loved the first book, and am hoping the awesome steampunk adventures continue in this one!
Other titles I’m dying to read that are tied for #10 on this list: The final “Matched” book (untitled as of now), “A Beautiful Evil (Gods & Monsters #2)”, “Lies Beneath”, “City of Lost Souls (Mortal Instruments #5)”, “Timepiece (Hourglass #2)”, “The Nightmare Garden (The Iron Codex #2)”, “This Is Not a Test”, “Crewel”, “Tokyo Heist”, and many many more!
*Note: “Bloodrose (Nightshade/Witches’ War #3)” isn’t included on this list because I got it today! I haven’t started it yet but I have stroked it and breathed creepily all over it. 😀
What are your top ten this Tuesday?
