1. Beastly by Alex Flinn
You can't read too many retellings of Beauty and the Beast right? I thought this version sounded original and interesting. I have already orderehyd this book.
2.The Protector by Carla Capshaw
I read the first in the series, The Gladiator, and fell in love with it, however I was reluctant to read this one, because one of the protagonists is a character I particularly hated in the first book. But, I can't help but wanting to read it, there are so few really well-written christian books out there. And, I trust that the author will do her magic once more, no matter the material she has to work with
3.The Hunger Games Trilogy by Suzanne Collins
I want to read these books because everyone is talking about them and also because the idea of a future society with an arena where people fight to the death for entertainment intrigues me. I hope it will not be too much for me and that they will not depress me.
4.The Pirate Ruse by Marcia Lynn McClure
I don't think I have to say more about this, for anyone who has read this author's books, you know why I want this. For anyone who hasn't, you are missing out. Go grab a copy of The Whispered Kiss or the Highwayman of Tanglewood now!
5.Willow by Julia Hoban
This one I have also ordered. I have lately started reading ya books, which I find refreshingly honest, easy-to-read and fascinating. I regret to say that I haven't found such honesty in many christian fiction books and although I miss God in ya fiction novels, I have loved reading them so far. I have read a few teen books in the christian genre and enjoyed them, but I have trouble finding more.
6.God Came Near by Max Lucado
I have started reading, or rather rereading, as I have read parts of it before, this book along with my Bible, so I will probably finish it this year. Both my husband and me want to read more Max Lucado books, though.
7.The Life and Times of Scrooge McDuck: The Lost Chapters by Don Rosa
This is a comic book, and I gave it as a Christmas present to my little brother, who is sure to lend it to me soon enough as he has already devoured it. I look forward to enjoying this piece of art, history and entertainment.
8.To Win Her Heart by Karen Witemeyer
I liked A Tailor Made Bride by the same author, and the plot of this one sounds really interesting.
9.Lost Voices by Sarah Porter
This is a ya fantasy book about mermaids, and it sounds really interesting.
10.Wild Roses by Deb Caletti
This is also a ya novel dealing with depression.
So that's my list. I would appreciate comments linking to your book-wishes for 2011 or telling me your opinion of the books I have put in mine. Thanks for reading.
