best of '11: day 5 (+ giveaway!!!)

 So as we leave 2011 in our rearview mirrors, we look toward the future with expectation and, in some cases, LONGING. Like in the case of some particular books that are coming out in this new year.

Which brings us to our fifth and final topic:

The Top 5 most anticipated books of 2012. Well, my top 5 anyway.

Now, I have to preference this with a caveat that these are the books I'm looking forward to that I haven't read in ARC form. So the antici.................

.......pation is REAL for me, not just for me wanting the wonder and glory to be unleashed upon the rest of the world. Ready?

1. The Fault in Our Stars by John Green (obvs, right?) (January 10, 2012, Dutton)

2. This is Not a Test by Courtney Summers (that FB except was killer, y'all!) (June 19, 2012, SMP)

3. The Masque of the Red Death by Bethany Griffin (the cover alone.... af2a4$5%sah!) (April 24, 2012, Greenwillow)

4. Fever by Lauren DeStefano (follow-up to Wither so, yeah) (February 21, 2012, Simon & Schuster)

5. The Hunger Games movie (okay so totally not a *book* BUT I've been going through HG withdraw for a while now and have you SEEN the trailer? and the marketing campaign? Y'all I woke up one morning to an email from President Snow in my inbox. !!!!)

What's everyone else saying? Ch-ch-check 'em out:


  1. This year I enjoyed a classic, Mahfouz's Cairo Trilogy. They are great.

  2. I'm looking forward to all of these myself. I can't believe John Green signed every first edition copy of The Fault in Our Stars.

  3. Your 2012 list is almost the same as mine lol
    Of them all [or, at least those future books on my radar] I cannot wait to wrap my grubby little book lovin' paws on This Is Not A Test by Courtney Summers! :D

  4. Looking forward to too many - but a short list includes Insurgent, Fault in Our Stars, and the next Percy Jackson (not sure what it's called yet). :)

  5. John Cusak!!! Lindsey wins the world!! I love this list and I think the Hunger Games movie totally counts!!
