The Broke and The Bookish, and this week's topic is books we're resolving to read this year.
I think most of these I don't really need to *resolve* to read, because I'm excited about them :D
1.) Delirium by Lauren Oliver - because I have been looking forward to this one for a while now, especially with all the glowing reviews!
2011 Debut Authors Challenge.
3.) Abandon by Meg Cabot - Aside from the gorgeous cover, I really want to see what Meg Cabot does with the myth of Persephone.
4.) The Near Witch by Victoria Schwab - I've been anticipating this book since before it even had a cover, so definitely excited to finally read it! And another for the Debut Authors Challenge.
5.) Deadly by Julie Chibbaro - One of the books I'm hoping to read for the YA Historical Fiction Challenge I'm participating in. I really like the premise of the protagonist working in a laboratory and trying to stop typhoid fever.
6.) Birthmarked by Caragh O'Brien - this is a dystopian YA that didn't get a whole lot of buzz, but I keep seeing positive reviews for it, and the first little bit I read in the bookstore certainly got my attention. Now I want to finish it!
7.) Kat, Incorrigible by Stephanie Burgis - this one just sounds like so much fun! And I guess it could count for both the Debut Author and YA Historical Fiction Challenges...
8.) The Latte Rebellion by Sarah Jamila Stevenson - I'm hoping to read some more PoC books as part of my "Read Outside Your Comfort Zone" Challenge, and this one has been on my radar for a while now. It sounds a bit different from all the other contemporary YA out there!
9.) Wither by Lauren DeStefano - because you can't have too much dystopian YA! And also because I have heard nothing but good things about this one.
10.) Left Neglected by Lisa Genova - an adult book for my "Read Outside Your Comfort Zone" Challenge. I thought Still Alice was extremely well-written, so I thought I'd try her next book as well.
Also, if I thought I had a hope of finishing it I might resolve to read Little Dorrit by Charles Dickens...but I tried to read it last year and failed rather spectacularly.
What books are you resolving to read in 2011?
