The Lust List (2012)

I'm already in Lust and the year has only just begun!


I went through my entire Goodreads To-Read list and came up with this top forty. 

I don't know how I did it.

Only one of these has no cover (if I included books without covers we'd be closer to 100 books I'm lusting over in 2012) and I've ordered them 1-40.

Two YA Debuts are included in the top five, and several YA Sophmores make up the top ten.

A sequel is the number one Lust-worthy title. 

Book I would Marry, if that sort of thing was legally binding. Hah, binding, get it?:

1) Insurgent (Divergent Trilogy) by Veronica Roth
Insurgent (Divergent, #2)
And the top five follows:

2) Fever (Chemical Garden)by Lauren DeStefano

6) 7) 8) 

9) Isla and the Happily Ever After by Stephanie Perkins

Sadly, we won't be getting our 'Happily Ever After' until 2013, according to Steph's blog, however, Isla still makes the list, as I'm anticipating it that much.

Oh, wow! What a list!
I love, love, love the cover for Wild Queen. Wow! Great impact!
The tale of Mary Queen of Scots is such a sad one. I always feel sorry for those historicals where the history is so Sad!
There's only one way for that book to end up!
Although I love a good historical novel, that's one reason my favorite genre is fantasy/fairytale. We can get our happily ever after if we want it!
Have fun with your reading year!
