My top 11 to read in 2011!

I have no idea where to begin with this list.  There are a ton of books being released in 2011 that I am dying to read.  Here are the top 11.  They are in no particular order of how badly I want them.

(links go to Goodreads)

#1-What Happened To Goodbye by Sarah Dessen-I love Sarah Dessen.  I think every teenage girl should read at least one of her books.  I don’t expect this one to be any less amazing than her other books. 

#2-The Iron Queen (Iron Fey #3) by Julie Kagawa-This is one of my new favorite series.  Julie Kagawa is an amazing new author.  I can’t wait to see what happens in the new book. 

#3-Forever (Wolves Of Mercy Falls #3) by Maggie Stiefvater-Shiver was one of my favorite books of 2009 and Linger was close to being on the list for 2010.  Hopefully this final book in the trilogy will make it on 2011 top books list.

#4-City Of Fallen Angels (Mortal Instruments #4) by Cassandra Clare-Do I need to say anything at all about this one?  =]

#5-Clockwork Prince (Infernal Devices #2) by Cassandra Clare-I loved Clockwork Angel.  I am so excited for the next book.  I want more romance in the next one though.

#6-So Much Closer by Susane Colasanti-Susane Colasanti is another one of my favorite authors.  I read her first book When It Happens and I was immediately in love.  I think this one will be another great romance from her. 

#7-Love Story by Jennifer Echols-Jennifer Echols is an amazing contemporary author.  Her romances are some of the steamiest I have ever read for teens and I have loved both of them so far.  This one is set in NYC at a university so I am excited to read it.   

#8-The Gathering (Darkness Rising #1) by Kelley Armstrong-The Darkest Powers trilogy was awesome and I have heard that she has mixed in pieces from that series into this one.  I can’t wait to see how it is. 

#9-The Locket by Stacey Jay-I loved Stacey Jay’s Megan Berry books and until the next one of those, this one will have to hold me over.  I have heard some very good things about it so I am excited to read it.

#10-Betrayal (Haunting Emma #2) by Lee Nichols-Deception was an awesome, eerie book and I am excited to read the sequel.  I hope it’s just as creepy as the first. 

#11-The Hidden (The Hollow #3) by Jessica Verday-I didn’t really love The Hollow but I did enjoy The Haunted.  It was a cliffhanger ending so I really want to know what happens next and how the trilogy is going to end.

What books are you looking forward to in the new year?

My favorite books of 2010!

I was only going to pick 20 books for this list but I couldn’t narrow it down so it’s 25.  2010 was just such an amazing book year!

(in no particular order) (links to my reviews)

#1-Nevermore by Kelly Creagh-Such an amazing story.  Probably the best debut of 2010, in my opinion.  The next book cannot get here fast enough!

#2-Zen And Xander Undone by Amy Kathleen Ryan-This was such a cute story.  It didn’t get the recognition that I feel it deserved.

#3-The Body Finder by Kimberly Derting-This is a very unique story.  It’s super creepy but I loved it.  I can’t wait to read Desires Of The Dead!

#4-Brightly Woven by Alexandra Bracken-I don’t read much fantasy but I am so glad that I read this one.  Alexandra Bracken has an amazing imagination and I loved her book.  I really hope the sequel gets published.

#5-The Sky Is Everywhere by Jandy Nelson-This is such a beautiful book.  I laughed and I cried.  A lot.

#6-Hex Hall by Rachel Hawkins-Hex Hall is fabulous.  It was so unique and amazingly funny.  I loved everything about it.

#7-Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver-This one was a little slow in the beginning but I am glad that I didn’t give up on it.  It was so good!

#8-Heist Society by Ally Carter-I loved Ally Carter’s first series but I have to say that this one might be better.  I had the hardest time putting this one down.

#9-Bleeding Violet by Dia Reeves-This is definitely the weirdest book that I have ever read but I say that in the best possible way.  Dia Reeves has quite the imagination.

#10-The Secret Year by Jennifer Hubbard-This is another one of those books that made me cry.  Jennifer Hubbard is a beautiful writer and I can’t wait for more from her.

#11-Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins-Do I really need to say anything about this one?  Great ending to the trilogy no matter what everyone else thinks.  Team Peeta all the way!

#12-Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare-I don’t know what to say about this one.  I just loved it.  The setting was probably the best part for me.

#13-Jane by April Lindner-A modern retelling of Jane Eyre.  Do I need to say more?  If so, I loved it.  I can’t praise it enough.  Read it!

#14-I Now Pronounce You Someone Else by Erin McCahan-This is the cutest book I have read in a long time.  I feel that every confused teenage girl should read this one.  You are not alone. 

#15-Bright Young Things by Anna Godbersen-I love Anna Godbersen.  Everything that she has written so far, I adored.  This one was no exception. 

#16-Paranormalcy by Kiersten White-Another fabulous debut.  I loved Paranormalcy so much.  Evie cracked me up and Lend made me swoon.  I can’t wait for the sequel. 

#17-Being Jamie Baker by Kelly Oram-This one had a little bit of everything in it.  There was romance, superhero powers, and one really evil guy.  I couldn’t stop reading!

#18-The Iron King by Julie Kagawa-I love anything to do with fairies and these are not your ordinary fairies.  They were so awesome.  I recommend this one all the time.  =]

#19-The Iron Daughter by Julie Kagawa-See #18.

#20-Sea by Heidi Kling-I loved Sea.  It was so moving and beautifully written.  I am dying for more from Heidi Kling.

#21-Salvaged  by Stefne Miller-I can’t say enough about Salvaged.  It’s an amazing book and I don’t feel that it has gotten the recognition that it deserves.  Check it out!

#22-The Agency by YS Lee-This series is fantastic.  It’s a great historical but it’s also a great mystery.  The third book is so far away though. 

#23-Shadow Hills by Anastasia Hopcus-Great debut!  Anastasia Hopcus wrote a great mystery that kept me guessing until the very end.

#24-Raised by Wolves by Jennifer Lynn Barnes-This was my first book by Jennifer Lynn Barnes but definitely not my last.  I can’t believe I haven’t read anything by her until now.  She’s awesome.

#25-Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare-Yes I only just read this series.  I hate myself for waiting so long.  I can’t wait for City Of Fallen Angels.  =]

My top books to read in 2010!

This is probably one of the hardest lists I have ever had to make. There are so many books coming out in 2010 that I want to read but I only picked 25. And yes they are in order of how badly I want to read them. =]

Italics=read

#1- The Hunger Games #3 by Suzanne Collins– I know this is probably one that tops a ton of peoples’ lists. I know it is going to be so hard to wait for it to be released.

#2- Linger (Wolves of Mercy Falls #2) by Maggie Stiefvater– I already know someone who has an ARC of this and I am super jealous of her. Ever since I read Shiver back in August I have been dying to read this one.

#3- Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver– This is a debut novel that I have only heard amazing things about. I know quite a few people who have read and they couldn’t have given it better reviews. March can’t get here soon enough.

#4- The Body Finder by Kimberly Derting– This is another debut novel that I really want to get my hands on. I have talked with Kimberly and she is super nice. I can’t wait to read her book.

#5- The Reckoning (Darkest Powers #3) by Kelley Armstrong– The Darkest Powers trilogy is one of my favorites. It’s just really unique and interesting. It’s a little creepy at parts but I can’t wait for the third and final book.

#6- Shadow Hills by Anastasia Hopcus– Well, it seems like there are going to be quite a few debut novels on this list. I have only read one review for this one but it was an outstanding one. This is another author who is super cool and another book that I just can’t wait for.

#7- Crescendo (Hush,Hush #2) by Becca Fitzpatrick– Hush,Hush was at the top of my list of favorite books for the year and I really hope that Crescendo is on that list next year. Also, I really can’t wait to see the cover for this one even though I highly doubt it could top the one for Hush,Hush.

#8- Torment (Fallen #2) by Lauren Kate– Fallen was also on my list of favorites for 2009 and it left me wanting so much more. The ending wasn’t necessarily a cliff-hanger but it does leave you with some questions. This is also another cover that I can’t wait to see.

#9- Forget You by Jennifer Echols– Going Too Far was amazing and from what little I know about this one, it should be too. I really love Jennifer Echols writing so waiting til July to read this is going to be super hard.

#10- Tell Me A Secret by Holly Cupala– I have not read any reviews for this debut novel just yet but I am hoping that they are good. I have been wanting to read this one ever since I first heard about it a couple months ago.

#11- Everlasting by Angie Frazier– Guess what? Another debut novel! =] It’s also one that I haven’t heard anything about yet but I still really want to read it. It sounds unique and exciting.

#12- Jekel Loves Hyde by Beth Fantaskey– OMG! I want to read this one right now. I loved Jessica’s Guide To Dating On The Dark Side and it was so well-written. I think this one could only be better. Plus, it’s definitely something I have never read about before.

#13- Forgive My Fins by Tera Lynn Childs– Oh.My.Gods was such a cute book. This one is way different than that one but it’s by Tera Lynn Childs so I am predicting that it is going to be awesome.

#14- Sisters Red by Jackson Pearce– After reading As You Wish, any book by Jackson Pearce goes on my to-read list. I know this one has nothing in common with the plot of As You Wish but it sounds like it is right up my alley.

#15- Some Girls Are by Courtney Summers– I haven’t read Cracked Up To Be. I know, how bad is that? I really need to but this one sounds even better, if that’s possible. I have read such great reviews for both her books, I just know when this one hits shelves I will be picking up a copy.

#16- Harmonic Feedback by Tara Kelly– I have read one review for this and I am terribly jealous that that person has already read this. The review was amazing and I expect that the book is even better. I can’t wait to get my hands on a copy.

#17- The Iron King by Julie Kagawa– This is a book that is going to be released from the Harlequin Teen line and so far every book they have published has been amazing. Plus that means there is going to be romance and I love that. Fairies, cats, and romance. What more could you ask for?

#18- Spells (Wings #2) by Aprilynne Pike– Wings wasn’t one of my favorite books but I did enjoy it and I really want to see where the author takes it next. I want to learn more about some of the characters.

#19- Tagged by Mara Purnhagen– Another Harlequin Teen novel. And a debut. This was my WOW pick a little while ago and I am even more eager for it now.

#20- The Clearing by Heather Davis– While Heather Davis’ first book was not one of my favorites, I still really enjoyed it. This one is a completely different type of story but it still sounds really interesting.

#21- Gloves Off (The Debs #3) by Susan McBride– This is another great trilogy that I really love. Susan McBride is a great author and she is super nice. I can’t wait to see how she ends this trilogy and how everyone ends up.

#22- Will Grayson, Will Grayson by John Green and David Levithan– These are two of my favorite authors. They are both great writers and I can’t wait to see what they have put together. I have read one review for this already and it was great.

#23- The Unwritten Rule by Elizabeth Scott– Elizabeth Scott wrote one of my favorite books of this year and all her writing is amazing. I haven’t read anything about this one yet but I am betting that it is great. She can do no wrong, in my opinion.

#24- All Unquiet Things by Anna Jarzab– This one is almost released. So close. I can’t wait to finally read this one because all the reviews I have read praised it. It sounds unique and I can always use something a little different.

#25- Something Like Fate by Susane Colasanti– Another one of my favorite authors. She always writes such cute chick-lit books so I plan on reading this one as soon as it’s released. Also, it has one of my favorite covers. It’s just cute.

What books are you looking forward to in the new year?
