Top Ten Tuesday: Books I am Excited to Read in 2012

Happy New Year and welcome to the first Top Ten Tuesday of 2012. As alway, many thanks to our hosts, The Broke and the Bookish. We are starting the year off with a list of books we are excited to read in 2012. This list poses a special challenge for me. Now that I think about it just about every list poses some challenge that allows me to justify cheating and making lists with more than ten titles. You know what? I’m going to just go ahead and own this. My name is Megan and I make Top Ten Lists with more than ten items on them. I am sorry if you are a stickler for the rules and dislike hearing about more than ten awesome books at a time, but that’s just how I roll here at YA? Why Not?. I feel better putting that out there. So here’s the deal. This year I want to really work on reading great books that I have missed. Of course I am also excited about brand new books coming out in 2012. See where I am going with this? No? Keep reading…
