Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Each Tuesday features a different topic and you post your top ten list related to the topic.

This weeks topic is a freebie, so we get to pick are own top ten topic. My topic is: 
Top Ten Books from My TBR that I hope to read in 2012

1. The Greyfriar (Vampire Empire #1) by Clay & Susan Griffith
  • I bought this title last year. It looked totally amazing and the cover caught me too. The art is done by one of my favorites, Chris McGrath.
2. The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman
  • I have been wanting to read Neil Gaiman for a long time. Last year I read one of his story stories and was blown away by it and that pretty much sealed the deal for reading more of his work.
3. The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (Millennium Trilogy #1) by Steig Larsson
  • I've seen both the U.S. and Swedish versions of the movie and enjoyed them very much. Lisbeth Salander is a captivating character. I look forward to digging into the series some time in  2012. 
4. Inhertiance (Inheritance Cycle #4) by Christopher Paolini
  • Normally I would have rushed out to buy this one the day it came out. Since it's the last one I have put it off, but I definitely want to read it soon.
5. A Clash of Kings (A Song of Ice and Fire #2) by George R.R. Martin
  • I'm still reading Game of Thrones, but eager to move on to book 2. 
6. Dear Mr. Potter: Letters of Love, Loss & Magic by Lily Zalon
  • This is one I have already started to read and I'm loving it. If you are a Harry Potter fan this book is a must read!!  Here is the buy link. If you are a true HP fan your gonna instantly connect with these fellow fans. Keep tissues near by.
7. No Proper Lady by Isabel Cooper
  • I picked this one up on the tag line alone. Looks like it will be a fun read.  It's Terminator meets My Fair Lady in this fascinating debut of black magic and brilliant ball gowns, martial arts and mysticism.
8. Aftermath (Sirantha Jax #5) by Ann Aguirre
  • Jax is definitely one of my favorite heroines. The series was such a surprise for me when it came out. I didn't think I'd like it, but end up loving it. Can't wait to read what Jax is up to in this one. 
9. Outlander (Outlander #1)by Diana Gabaldon
  • I've had Outlander on my shelves for a good three years, it's definitely time to jump in and see if all the talk about this series is true. 
10. Out of Oz (The Wicked Years #4) by Gregory Maguire
  • This is a series that works for some and not for others. I happen to love it a lot. After reading Wicked I actually preferred the story over The Wizard of Oz. After Elphaba's story, Dorthy's just seems quite boring. Out of Oz is suppose to be the last book in the series, so I have been putting this one off too.


  1. Great list. I would love to read the Outlander series, heard so many great things about it.


  2. I just read The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo a couple of weeks ago. I saw the movie and thought 'I must read this'. :) I adore the Outlander series! Jamie Fraser is amazing...sigh.
    My Top Ten Tuesday!

  3. I saw The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo in the cinema and LOVED it. I really NEED to read it now!!

    I also want to read The Eragon series. I know I'll love it. I don't know why I haven't read it yet!

  4. I was just thinking yesterday that I wanted to read Outlander, but GOOD LORD. Those books are like 7 million pages long. And I've never heard of the HP book, but I definitely need to check that one out.

  5. I loved Outlander...though I kinda got bored with series as a whole. Still one of my all-time favorites! I am particularly intrigued by the No Proper Lady blurb...sounds like fun!


  6. Loved the Grayfriar! I could reread that book again.

  7. The Greyfriar is definitely a great read. I need to go back to book two... And I have No Proper Lady on my TBR too. It was one of those books that I picked up at the bookstore over and over before I actually bought it. Now I just have to read it. Lol.

  8. I listened to all of the Outlander books so far and they were awesome. I read one but got hooked on the audio books. Some were in tape format from my local library but worth the pain of listening to a tape. I didn't think I would like it but fell in love with Jamie and even fell in love with Lord John Grey...I felt sorry for him. This series may start out a little slow but stick with it and you'll be waiting impatiently for the next book & that's a promise. Sorry but I just found this great site and am catching up on all the blogs. lostime4me@gmail.com

  9. Definitely get to The Greyfriar! I loved that book-it was a surprise treat, really..

    I've lost interest in the Inheritance books... which is a shame because I even bought Brisngr when it came out, but now I just don't feel like picking it up AT ALL.

    I need to read more of Gaiman, too. I've only read his stuff for younger readers such as Coraline and I think a book about wolves living in the walls of a house? Maybe it was even a picture book! ha!

    Good luck getting to all of these great books!
