Top Ten Tuesday: Books I Resolve to Read in 2011

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish where bloggers make lists about books and other suitably bookish things. This week we're doing books we resolve to read in 2011:

1. The Harry Potter series by J.K Rowling. *hangs head in shame* I know, I've been wanting to read Harry Potter for ages, but I just haven't. I hope to change that this year.

2. Vampire Academy series by Richelle Mead. Everyone keeps on telling me how awesome this series is, and know that all of the books are out I don't really have much of an excuse any more.

3. All of John Green's books. (Paper Towns, An Abundance of Katherines, Looking for Alaska, Will Grayson x2) Because I don'f feel like I can be a legitimate Nerdfighter without doing so.

4. The Knife of Never Letting Go by Patrick Ness. I've heard awesome things about this series, so I figured I should probably get around to reading it!

5. The Gemma Doyle trilogy. I have the first one, and I've heard pretty good things about the series.

6. The Book Thief by Marcus Zusack. I haven't picked it up yet because I don't like the UK cover (I'm not fond of the colour choice). Shallow, I know, but I've only heard of it recently and people tell me it's amazing and that I should read it.

7. Stolen by Lucy Christopher. Again, I've heard good things about it, and the idea of it sounds really interesting.

8. The Luxe by Anna Godbersen. I have a copy of Bright Young Things, and I've just been wanting to read her other books for a while.

9. The 13 Treasures by Michelle Harrison. With The 13 Secrets coming out soon, a lot of UK people in twitter have been talking about this series, and it sounds really good, so I want to read them :D

10. 13 Little Blue Envelopes by Maureen Johnson. I've just been wanting to read one of her  books for a while, is all :)

What books do you resolve to read in 2011?


  1. I was a bit disappointed by the one John Green book I read (Alaska) and just a bit disappointed by Book Thief, but, then again, I think I saw too many spoilers before I read them.

    Here's my list of ten books to read this year.

  2. great list. I love harry porter series though.

  3. Harry Potter made my list too. I want to read the Vampire Academy series too, but I have promised myself a nice break from vampires. :p

    Hope you enjoy all of these!

  4. Great list! From your list I want to read HP, Stolen, The Book Thief, and The Luxe.
    The Vampire Academy series is really good, hope you like it!
    Good luck on your reading goals!

  5. It is crazy to see everyone who hasn't read HP. I thought I was going to be booed and shunned. It's nice to see that I am in good company when reading it for the first time.

    And John Green, his books are the best. Hope you enjoy them all!

  6. Great picks! Harry Potter, Vampire Academy and John Green? I approve!!

  7. The Book Thief is on my list as well...and LOTS of other lists! I'm also going to give The Luxe a try this year...I really want to read more YA :) Great list!

  8. I haven't read Harry Potter or the VA books either! I actually have Paper Towns out from the library right now. And I want to read the entire Chaos Walking trilogy this year.

    I've read The Book Thief and I enjoyed it but I didn't love it with a passion like everyone else seems to!

  9. I am so jealous that you'll be reading the Harry Potter series for the first time. I wish I could go back and experience them for the first time again!

  10. #1 and #2 are so epic - I'm almost jealous that you get to read them for the first time!
