Having seen lists of books they have every intention of reading from book blogger friends Flannery, Catie and Holly, I thought it would be a good idea to post my own list. Maybe making this list will enable me to become more organized in terms of reading choices.

Books I Plan to Read in 2012:
The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
To Say Nothing of the Dog by Connie Willis
Strong Poison by Dorothy Sayers
The Dark Mirror or Wolfskin by Juliet Marillier
Northlander and The King Commands by Meg Burden
I Capture the Castle by Dodie Smith
Nine Uses for an Ex-Boyfriend by Sarra Manning
Paper Towns by John Green
I’ll Be There by Holly Goldberg Sloan
Wonderstruck by Brian Selznick
Five Flavors of Dumb by Antony John
Where She Went by Gayle Forman
The King Must Die and The Bull from the Sea by Mary Renault
Unreported Murders, Mass Murders and Last Seen After Midnight by Budjette Tan and KaJo Baldisimo

Those are the books that I already have copies of. Some releases this year that I’m also planning to read:

About That Night by Julie James
Banner of the Damned by Sherwood Smith
Night Beach by Kirsty Eagar (if I manage to find a way to get it)
Bitterblue by Kristin Cashore
Unspoken by Sarah Rees Brennan
Days of Blood and Starlight by Laini Taylor
Speechless by Hannah Harrington

Okay, I should stop there. I might not manage to read all the books in the list if I add more. I’ve noticed that 2012 has been a slow reading year for me compared to last year but I’m trying to take it easy so I won’t experience a reading slump. I really hope I can read all of the above within the year! Moving on to the next list, some of which I have and some still on my wishlist.

Books I’ll Read Someday
Cordelia’s Honor by Lois McMaster Bujold
Blood Red Horse by K.M. Grant
Tigana by Guy Gavriel Kay
Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell by Susanna Clarke
Elfland by Freda Warrington
The Blue Castle by L.M. Montgomery
Coronets and Steel by Sherwood Smith
Rosemary and Rue by Seanan McGuire
Eon and Eona by Alison Goodman
Deerskin by Robin McKinley
Silver Metal Lover by Tanith Lee
The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Annie Barrows
Fire and Hemlock, Deep Secret and the rest of Diana Wynne Jones’ books
The rest of Juliet Marillier’s books
The rest of Tamora Pierce’s books

And many, many more! I have shelves on Goodreads for books that I own but haven’t read and my wishlist. The books mentioned here are the ones that are my top priority. How about you, what’s on your list of books to read this year? Any other titles you’re planning to read someday? 🙂
