I am officially a weiner!!!

And as a weiner, I get to read books. Ten actually, to make my goal of 60 this year. Here is the TBR pile for the end of the year:

#1 Drawn Together by ZA Maxfield (A rec from my girl Kerry Freeman)

#2 Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins (I lent it to a student cos I knew I wouldn't be able to finish it before NaNo, it's sitting on my shelf at home!)

#3 Linger by Maggie Stiefvater (SWOON SAM!)

#4 Clockwork Angel by Cassie Claire (A former student lent it to me)

#5 Crescendo by Becca Fitzgerald (YAY! PATCH!)

#6 Leaving Gee's Bend by Irene Latham (Anna this better not make me cry!

#7 Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins (Nanna THIS better not make me cry!)

#8 Dear sir, I'm yours by Joelly Sue Burkehart (I'm reviewing for her)

#9 Ballad by Maggie Stiefvater (I took a break from it, I have 40 pages left)

#10 On the Road by Jack Kerouac (this is to appease my hubbin and then I can go see the movie with him next year :))

Here's a link to my must-haves for this and next year- BOOKS I WANT SOON


  1. I'm starting with Drawn Together too!

    I need to make a TBR list, and do it. I read naff all this last year :( Pathetic, really, because the year before I read like 40 books.

  2. Oh Leaving Gee's Bend..GOOD choice! I actually (finally) blogged about it the other day.

    Catching Fire/Mockingjay/Linger get big YAYs too!

  3. You'll LOVE Drawn Together. It is definitely more than it seems at first glance. And the cover? *sigh* Can't wait to hear what you think.

  4. Yeah! We won! We won! I think I'm going to do NaNoFiMo this month which should help me finish mine. lol ... I just found out about it today.

  5. I'm assuming it's National Novel Finishing Month.

    And I started AND finished Drawn Together yesterday. Have you read it yet, Becca?

  6. I haven't found it yet! :( I'm home sick. I just woke up and I might read CF since its here.

  7. Love the new nerdy blog!! Especially the snowflakes!
    I have yet to finish Linger-1/2 way through but stopped months ago for work) & clockwork angel & Crescendo & Anna & French Kiss & just bought ON THE ROAD (finally-been meaning to read for years & friend recommended it to me recently & planning to read on holidays.
    So many books to share thoughts on!!!

  8. I'm so glad you like it!
    I have been such a reading slacker! I really need to get on to another book, but I've been taking my time through Catching Fire and doing a lot of betaing.
    Enjoy your reading and your holiday Mel!!!
