Top Ten Tuesday (1): TBR List for Winter

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme brought to you by The Broke and the Bookish.  Each week a new Top Ten list topic is posted and book bloggers fill in their own choices.  I'm a list girl (as in, I don't function without them), so I thought this would be a good choice for me!  This is my first Top Ten Tuesday, and I'm super excited for this week's topic because I haven't made my TBR for winter yet, so here goes...

Karis's Top Ten Books TBR for Winter 2011-2012 
(in no particular order)
*click the title for a synopsis of each book*

1.  Bloodrose by Andrea Cremer~ I'm ridiculously jealous of all the bloggers who got ARCs of this.  It's one of my most anticipated books of 2012.  January 3rd, Philomel.

2.  A Million Suns by Beth Revis~ Another much-anticipated title.  I adored Across the Universe and can't wait to get my hands on a copy of this.  January 10th, Razorbill.

3.  Fever by Lauren DeStefano~  I adored Wither, and have already pre-ordered this.  I can't wait to find out what happens next.  Honestly, I'm glad I waited until summer to read Wither, because the wait is a few months less painful. February 21st, Simon & Schuster.

4.  Under the Never Sky by Veronica Rossi~ I am trying not to read my copy of this right now because I have other books for review that release before it, but I am having a hard time waiting... January 3rd, HarperCollins Children's Books.

5.  Harbinger by Sara Wilson Etienne~ This cover is one of my favorites of all the upcoming 2012 releases.  Just stunning.  I've heard good advance buzz and can't wait to read this.   February 2nd, Putnam Juvenile.

6.  Fracture by Megan Miranda~ I've heard it said that if you loved If I Stay, then you will love this.  This is another one that I have, and am itching to read, but am trying to wait for until I catch up on my earlier releases.  January 17th, Walker & Co.

7.  Everneath by Brodi Ashton~ The most gorgeous cover so far for 2012.  I have this and will probably read it very soon.  The advance buzz has been amazing!  January 24th, Balzer + Bray.

8.  When the Sea Is Rising Red by Cat Hellisen~ This looks like it's going to be amazing.  It comes out toward the end of winter, but I think it will definitely get read immediately upon release (unless I'm lucky enough to get an advance copy).  February 28th, Farrar, Straus, & Giroux BYR.

9.  Dead to You by Lisa McMann~ I've been looking forward to this release for a LONG time.  I love Lisa's books and this one looks to be one of her best yet!  February 7th, Simon Pulse.

10.  The Fault In Our Stars by John Green~  I am such a John Green fangirl, so I will read this immediately upon release.  I would read this without even knowing what it's about because I love his books so much, but this actually looks to be made of awesome anyway.  Win, win!  January 10th, Dutton Juvenile.

So this is my first Top Ten Tuesday... How did I do?  What are your Top Ten?

  4. Great list! I'm looking forward to Fever and Under the Never Sky!


  5. Awesome List. I should have included A Million Suns on my list as well. I can not wait for that one to come out. =] Thanks for visiting my blog and the nice comment and for following me. I am following you back. =]
    My Top Ten

  6. You have so many here that I have absolutely been drooling over. I can't wait to see what you think of them. I also have some of the same review books, which I am reading on top of my list. What can I say? I'm ambitious! Good luck!

  7. All of these books sound incredible. It's going to be a great winter! Glad that Bloodrose is coming out soon. I'm going to wait for the last moment to read Wolfsbane so I can read them together. Under the Never Sky also looks fantastic.
    Happy Winter reading!

  8. thanks for stopping by our blog! you have such a good list of new releases coming out soon, i can't wait! Fever and The Fault in our Stars?! AHHH!


  9. We do have many shared books on our Top Ten list! I am totally jealous of everyone who snagged Bloodrose though I think one of those lovely bloggers is sending me her copy to borrow.

    Harbinger sounds really amazing and I can't wait to read it!

    And I can't believe John Green's novel is due out in just a little over a month! I think it was forever ago that I pre-ordered it.

    Awesoome list!

  10. I haven't heard of most of these, but The Fault in Our Stars was number 1 on my list! I am so excited for it! Have you seen the videos on his Youtube channel where he reads the first two chapters?

    Now I'm off to read your review of Lola and the Boy Next Door, which is also on my extended to-read list...

  15. I am afraid of reading Bloodrose. What will
    Calla do? Will it make me happy or will I cry?

  16. I am also waiting for 1, 4, 7 and 9. Great list!

  19. A Million Suns! Can't wait to buy this one. Definitely can't get an ARC, but that's okay. It's worth the purchase. And, Fever is another one I'm want to read. The first one wasn't perfect, but I still really liked it. Definitely want to see what happens next.

    Both Under the Never Sky and Everneath are getting more and more attention lately, so I'm getting excited about reading those.

    This is an awesome list! I'd be overwhelmed by reading all of these in one winter, if I were you.

    Thanks for visiting my blog today!

  20. I am so jealous of all the people who have an ARC of A Million Suns! I CAN'T WAIT TO READ IT!! I loved Across the Universe.

    I also really want to read The Fault in Our Stars! I hope I get a copy with a Hankler fish, as that would be amazing!

    Thanks for stopping by my blog!

  21. Great list!! So many of those books I want to read too! I definitely need to read Wither first, since I have the ARC of Fever sitting in front of me - staring me down... ;) LOL

    Thanks for stopping by!

  29. Fracture and The Fault in Our Stars are AMAIZING. No joke. They are so amazing I made a typo in excitement and didn't bother to fix it just to prove how amazing they are.

    Love your blog! New follower.

  30. Oh, awesome list! :D Enjoy reading them all. <33 :) I am also going to read A Million Suns, but yeah, I must read Across the Universe first (A) lol. I didn't really like Matched, but I have hopes for Crossed. I must read it when I have time :)

  33. Gah! I totally forgot to put so many wonderful books on my list, such as A Million Suns, Under the Never Sky, and Everneath!

  34. Thanks for visiting my blog. I forgot to add the new, up-coming John Green book. I will have to fight my daughter for this book to see who will read it first.

  35. When the Sea is Rising Red sounds like a simply brilliant read.!


Thanks for visiting my blog! I adore comments since they make me feel special and loved, just please don't spam me. I'm not interested in vacation offers, millions of dollars from Nigeria, or anything not book related!

Also, this is an award-free blog. As flattered as I am, I just don't have time. I'm happy if I have time to post all of my reviews on time, and am a momma of three to boot, but I appreciate the thoughts! XO
