Top Ten Books I'm Excited to Read in 2012

Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish where there is a different list featured every week. Anyone can participate and if you link back to their site you might get a couple extra visitors!

It's 2012 and that means more authors and more books! Since I had a little hard time coming up with my top ten, I cheated and split all the ones I'm really excited for up. There's still a list of ten but some extras added later. I figured it's my blog, so I can :)

Top Ten Books I'm Excited to Read in 2012
(This list is all the sequels I'm waiting for. They also all come out in 2012.)

I even tried to put them in order for you guys.

10. Untitled (Hush, Hush #4)
by Becca Fitzpatrick
The end is finally coming and I can't wait to see what happens. I'll be sad to see it go but I just want more Patch!

9. Black Heart (Curse Workers #3)
by Holly Black 
I read the first two books in this series in the middle of last year. I feel like I've been without these characters for too long. I want them back!

8. City of Lost Souls (The Mortal Instruments #5)
by Cassandra Clare
With that cliffhanger in City of Fallen Angels? Who isn't dying to get their hands on this?!

7. Timepiece (Hourglass #2)
by Myra McEntire
A lot of books have two boys going after one girl. This isn't exactly like that but kind of. Kaleb is a huge flirt, even though Michael already has Emerson's heart, and I can't get enough. Kaleb makes this series for me, and he didn't even come till at least half way through. But we'll be seeing a lot more of him in the sequel it seems, so how can I not be excited?

6. Untitled (Madly #3)
by M. Leighton
Madly's story is one of my favorites. Leighton has created an original world and I love all the chaos that goes on. Madly's my first mermaid so of course I love her. I also happen to love the man she loves, so, I want her story. NOW. 

5. Clockwork Princess (The Infernal Devices #2)
by Cassandra Clare
Clare knows what she's doing in both her series. This love triangle is probably one of the best I've come across. With Clare, you can't really guess what she's going to hit you over the head with next. That's why I love her stories, and why they make me want to rip my hair out! Jem or Will? Jem or Will? 

4. Pandemonium (Delirium #2)
by Lauren Oliver
The first half of Delirium was SO slow for me. But by the end I was like WHAT??!! Oliver really knows how to create a cliffhanger, or make you want to hunt her down and demand the next book immediately.

3. Untitled (Shatter Me #2)
by Tahereh Mafi
Shatter Me blew me away. There was everything you could want: action, romance, a slightly unknown world, and awesome characters. Give. me. NOW.

2. Waiting for Mercy (Cambion #2)
by Shannon Dermott
Mercy's story is so unique I feel in love with her story from the first couple of pages. Everything I've read in this story has been a surprise and with all the men floating around, I'm always interested. Mercy has herself in more than one debacle and waiting to see what happens next is killing me.

1. Taken at Dusk (Shadow Falls #3)
by C.C. Hunter
This might be one of my favorite series ever. I'm drawn to the camp, the characters, all their unique situations, and all the craziness that's happening. We're trying to find out what Kylie is along with Kylie. She doesn't know exactly where her heart belongs, and strange things are still happening. There are even other characters that have strange things happening. I think because of all the different relationships and multiple trials that are happening in this story, I'm completely hooked.

Honorable mentions:

Insurgent (Divergent #2) by Veronica Roth Bloodrose (Nightshade #3) by Andrea Cremer (which comes out today!)

These next books are either first in the series, or I haven't started the series yet.

The Golden Lily (Bloodlines #2)
by Richelle Mead
Even though I haven't read the last VA book yet, or read the first in this series, I'm pumped for this book to come out. I love Adrian and since he's a main character in this, I couldn't be more excited. I knew Rose would end up with Dimitri and since Adrian is one of my favorite characters, I'm not THAT devastated for VA to end. 

Tempest (Tempest #1)
by Julie Cross
This book is about people in college and since I'm a recent college grad, I feel like this book could be more relatable to me than other YA books are. It's also about time travel and love, so duh, I'm excited.

Everneath (Everneath #1)
by Brodi Ashton
Having six months to choose to fight to live with your family, friends and boyfriend on Earth, or give in and live in the underworld with a sexy immortal? I think this is going to be a good one. YES, PLEASE!

Desinty's Fire 
by Trisha Wolfe
This is about shape-shifters (my favorites) and it's set in the future. She's one of the last of her kind and the enemy has better access than ever to her home. It sounds like there's training, fighting, and even romance in this novel. Woohoo :)
