Oooh you have a lot of great picks! A lot of them a part of series that I'm dying to start reading! lol.

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog :)


Lindsey (A Storm of Words) said...

Ooh I forgot about Goddess Interrupted! I can't wait for that book as well!

Patricia said...

The covers of The Girl in the Clockwork Collar and Dreamless really irritate me to no end. I'll read them, because I've read the first novels in the series, but really, they do look weird, right? oô

Thumps up for Golden Lily and Wings of the Wicked. I've heard the last one'll be much better than the first Moulton novel. : )

Happy Reading & Happy New Year!

My Picks

(and this word verification is brilliant. reasubsi oô..)

Fiktshun said...

Love that it seems like you picked the list based on gorgeous covers! Those covers are all stunning!

I don't know how you keep track of those pages read. That's amazing!

I need to up my adult books read for 2012. I think I've read three. Not my finest hours.

And I'm glad to see that you opted not to read too many books three star and below! With so many amazing books out there, time is best spent on reading the awesome!

Happy almost New Year!

A Life Bound By Books said...

Thanks so much for sharing your list. I do have to say that all the books you highlighted here have some amazing covers too! Beautiful!


Lisa said...

Great list! I'm looking forward to all of these sequels <3

Kristin said...

I agree with all your choices! I just need to start all the series ;) A lot of them are just sitting on my shelves tho, so I'm halfway there!!! I just read more adult than YA...

You know, I saw Cinder sitting on my bookstore shelf just today (B&N)??? Did they put it out too early?? Weird!!!

Awesome goals for next year!! I know you'll hit them, even if you have extra "baggage" on board. I didn't start reading until my boy was born :) Have a great New Years!!
