Top 10 Books I Wish I'd Read In 2011

Good morning/evening/afternoon/night! Here is my list of the top ten books I wish I'd got around to reading in 2011! :D In no particular order, of course ;)

Angelfire (Angelfire, #1)1. Angelfire by Courtney Allison Moulton - Everybody says it's amazing. I read a sample on my Kindle and it was amazing. WHY HAVEN'T I READ IT YET?!

2. A Touch Mortal by Leah Clifford - There have been mixed reviews of this one, but I'm still really excited to read it! I won it back in August and I still haven't read it... I'm so bad... Must get round to it soon, or I think Daph will kill me... ;)

Across the Universe (Across the Universe, #1)
3. Across the Universe by Beth Revis - Another one that I've (nearly) only heard good things about. Again, I've had it on my shelf for AGES and I still haven't read it... I'll try and read it before A Million Suns comes out here! :D

4. Jellicoe Road by Melina Marchetta - I received this from Sara from Just Another Story for my birthday, and I feel really bad for not reading it... Especially because it looks so awesome and EVERYBODY says it's amazing :D Like, seriously, I literally don't know anyone that didn't like it... So I MUST get to this one in 2012!

Clockwork Prince (The Infernal Devices, #2)5. Clockwork Prince by Cassandra Clare - Yeah, I still haven't read it. I don't know why, but when I got it I just wasn't as excited as I wanted to be! So I haven't read it - I'm waiting for the hype to die down so I can read it with an open mind because if I'm expecting it to be my favourite read of the year and it's not, I'll be very sad, you know? ;) That said, I kind of wish I'd already read it - people are talking about it and I can't join in because I haven't read it yet!

6. Boys Don't Cry by Malorie Blackman - I tweeted I needed to read this and so many people tweeted me back agreeing. So, I've downloaded it and I will most definitely read it next year because it looks AMAZING. I just wish I'd bought and read it earlier!

Sweet Venom (Medusa Girls #1)
7. Sweet Venom by Tera Lynn Childs - This sounds SO good and I downloaded it onto my Kindle as soon as I could so I could read it as soon as possible... But I never did. Which is a shame because I adored Forgive My Fins... So hopefully I can get around to this one in 2012!

8. Wolfsbane by Andrea Cremer - I LOVED the first one of these, but I just never got around to reading this one... I think I'll wait until the final book, Bloodrose comes out so I don't have to wait in between the books... ;)

9. Hourglass by Myra McEntire - A YA about Time Travel. YES PLEASE. I won it in September and I haven't read it yet... Again. AHH! I NEED MORE TIME TO READ! Definitely very high on my TBR for 2012 :D

Between Shades of Gray10. Between Shades of Grey by Ruta Sepetys - I know, I know, this book is AMAZING. Like, everyone says so. And I HAVEN'T READ IT YET. I haven't even GOT it... Ahh! I'm going to read it next year, I promise. I promise I promise I promise ;D It's cheap on Kindle right now... ;D

And there it is! My list of ten books that I WILL most definitely (probably (hopefully)) read in 2012 because I'm naughty and didn't read them this year... Let me know in the comments the books that you wish you'd gotten around to!


  1. Oh the humanity! Jellicoe Road is SO amazing (but you know that). Get to it Bella, you will not regret. Also Across the Universe was a grand surprise for me. I am very excited for A Million Suns. Enjoy!

  2. Between Shades of Gray and Across the Universe are amazing. Unfortunately I didn't like Jellicoe Road but I hope you will!

  3. There are quite a few things on this list that I own but haven't read yet either. Like you, I wanted to wait on Wolfsbane. I did real Angelfire since I went to meet the author and it was really good. So was Across the Universe and Beth Revis is too dang funny!

  4. I really wanted to read Across the Universe last year too. Hopefully I'll read it this year.

  5. Lots of great books on your list, looks like you have an amazing reading journey ahead of you. Can't tell you how much I ADORE Jellicoe Road and Boys Don't Cry. Between Shades of Gray was so emotional for me as well..

Book Review: Insight by Jamie Magee

Title: Insight Author: Jamie Magee Series: Insight #1 Pages: 314 Date of UK Publications: July 20th 2010 Source: Received free for a blog tour/event Synopsis from Goodreads: Before that fateful summer night, Willow had balanced the insight of emotion, and the vivid images. That night, the figure in her nightmare marked her wrist with a star, giving her father no choice but to tell Willow a family secret that would abruptly change life, as she knew it, forever. Before Willow had time to absorb the shock of her father's secret, her soul mate that had shared every stunning dream with her, found her, and darkness captured her closest friends. In order to save them, she must weave through broken myths and the undeniable power of the Zodiac. In the end, Willow discovers that at the moment of our birth we are all given a divine gift. My Thoughts: Insight was a good book. The plot was well thought out, and the characters were complex and real. It was a strong debut novel,
