- Stormdancer by Jay Kristoff. This book received so
much buzz in the blogosphere that I knew I just had to
read it. I managed to get my hands on it when it came out, but
haven't had a chance to read it yet. Here's hoping I get to it soon.
- The Fault In Our Stars by
John Green. This one received even more buzz and I pre-ordered it
despite never having read John Green before. I figured it would be
as amazing as everyone was making it out to be. But I've been too
scared of being totally depressed to actually read it yet.
- Sea Hearts by Margo
Lanagan. It sounds amazing and is another that has gotten brilliant
reviews. I can't wait to read it!
- Graffiti Moon by Cath
Crowley. An Aussie gem (or so I've heard) that I'm ashamed to admit
I haven't read yet.
- The Tenant of Wildfell Hall by
Anne Bronte. Anne is the only Bronte I have yet to read, and I plan
to remedy that.
- Divergent by Veronica
Roth. Of the many dystopians to hit the scene post-Hunger Games,
Divergent was one of
the few to get resounding praise. I finally picked it up at a book
sale after Christmas so I can read it soon.
- The Thief by Megan
Whalen Turner. The first in a series that came to my attention when
I found out it was one of Melina Marchetta's faves – so it must be
- The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy by
Douglas Adams. This has been on my bookshelf for years and for some
reason I've never read it. I think it's probably about time I did.
- Night Beach by Kirsty
Eager. Eager is another Aussie author that I've heard great things
about, and I've been meaning to read one of her books for awhile.
- Nicholas Nickleby by
Charles Dickens. When I was at uni I was obsessed with Dickens and
read a bunch of his books, but I haven't read much of his lately. I plan to
rekindle my love this year, and NN looks like a good place to start.
