Here's this week's question:

2012 Must Reads:
Which books are at the top of your list 
to be read this year
(new or old releases)?

I've been accumulating books for years now, and I think it's high time I read at least some of them!  That's why I'm participating in the 2012 TBR Pile Reading Challenge (see my sidebar), which is aimed at whittling down one's mountain of books to be read.  I have so many terrific books I'd like to read, too...both fiction and non-fiction! 

There are books I do feel I must read, whether or not they've been in my library for years, or have just joined their 'older siblings'.  Okay, here are the ones that are calling out to me most strongly:

(Iron Fey #3)

So these are some of the books I would like to read this year.  I haven't featured the non-fiction books I'd also like to read, mind you!  I might do a separate post for them!



  1. I need to read Wolfsbane so I can get Bloodrose! I heard so many crazy things about it!! I saw the fallen series in B&N & now I'm really interested in them too. divergent was good, I hope you like it:D

    My TGIF & FF ((:
    -thank you&come again.

  2. Wow. Those are a lot of books! I hope you have time to go through them all... :)

    I've not yet done this list. I know I have about 30 titles already waiting, but there's many I've not listed yet - if I do, I get overwhelmed! Still, you got great choices here. I've read some of them and I think you'll enjoy them!
