Top Ten Tuesday & Book Tour Host

~The Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.~

Happy Tuesday everyone! How was your weekend?
Yes...this is another 2-in-1 post. However, things come up and sometimes we are blessed with these type of posts. ^.^ Anyways, I have fantastic news! I have been officially become part of a Book Tour Host at Ever After Pr! Which means me and a group of people will have the opportunity to read, review, feature a book or interview an author on our blog! How exciting? The better news is that they are still searching for some more bloggers to join in and become a part of the TEAM. To get more information click HeRe! I'm really excited! Honestly, I've never done one of these things before, but I bet it'll be a lot of fun. 

Well, I haven't done one of these TT posts in a long time...sorry...but here I am! This week's subject is: "top ten book you're excited to read in 2012". 

(There is no order to my list)

-The Garden Intrigue by Lauren Willig
-Fitzwilliam Darcy, Rockstar by Heather Lynn Rigaud

-To Die For by Sandra Byrd

-The Dragon and the Pearl by Jeannie Lin
-All Quiet on the Western Front by Ercih Maria Remarque

-Regeneration by Pat Barker
-Another World by Pat Barker

-Becoming Marie Antoinette by Juliet Grey
-The Silver Wolf by Alice Borchardt
-The Indian Lawyer by James Welch 

There are A LOT more...but these were the first 10 that popped into my head. What are you dying to read in 2012?

I've read Fitzwilliam Darcy, Rockstar, and it was intense! I see you're reading Pemberley Ranch. I've been wanting to read that one. It sounds like such an interesting take on Austen's world.

Kristina said...

I have seen Alice Borchardt books and I have always been curious about them.

Some awesome titles on your list. I'm definitely waiting for The Garden Intrigue too, I love that series.

Blodeuedd said...

Congrats :)

I have been thinking of reading the Remarque book for my challenge, we will see.

Anne said...

Great list, I read Becoming Marie Antoinette and I thought it was wonderful.

Kris said...

I want to read a few of these, particularly Fitzwilliam Darcy, rockstar.

Congrats on the blog tour hosting news. Sounds like great fun! Might join you on it :)

A book from Snowy River

I honestly didn't enjoy ALl Quiet on the Western Front, but that was because it was very depressing and brutal. The other books look good. I may be looking into some of them. Thanks for sharing!

My Top Ten

Carole Rae said...

Melanie, that's what I've heard and I'm so excited to read it! So far it's pretty goo!

Kristina, me too, that's why I'm finally making a stand and reading one of her books this year.

1girl2manybooks, me too! I simple adore Lauren Willig's world

Blodeuedd, thanks! Yeah, it's been on my shelf for a while, so the challenge is an excellent excuse to force myself to read it.

Carole Rae said...

Anne, I'm super excited to read it!

Kris, yeah! Darcy as a rockstar? That is defiantly something that needs to be read. haha

Manda-rae, yeah I seen bits and pieces of the movie remake and from what I seen it looked insanely sad, buuut the book as been sitting on my shelf for a while now, so it deserves to be read. I'll be sure to stop on by!

First off, Carole, let me say hello - I'm your newest follower and I'm here courtesy of the Beck Valley Blog Hop - http://bit.ly/w4V4VA

Great list, you've got quite eclectic tastes, and I'm already checking out a sample of "Regeneration" as I was looking for a new read.

One other story I'd like to recommend to you, Blodeuedd and anyone else reading "All Quiet.." is my own first short fiction, "Seven Lives to Repay Our Country" - you can read a sample and watch the trailer on my blog, if you like!

Or, if you're in the mood for something light, fun, and also a quick read, my latest story "Happily Ever After" is FREE for Kindle until Friday! You can get it here: http://amzn.to/uIjoa1

Hope you're having a great day, and happy hopping!

I saw the original "All Quiet on the Western Front".... very sad, very moving.

"The Dragon and the Pearl" looks amazing and I'm planning on reading.

Thanks for stopping by my blog!

Erin O'Riordan said...

'Fitzwilliam Darcy, Rockstar' sounds like the greatest thing ever!

This year I'm looking forward to Charlaine Harris' 'Deadlocked' and the next book in Marlene Perez's Dead Is series.

Carole Rae said...

Edward, hi! Thanks for deciding to join my blog. And yes, I love a good variety of books. I'll have to check out those, especially 'Happily Ever After'. How can anyone say no to a free read PLUS it sounding like a fantastic read too. I'll be sure to stop on by. Thanks again! Happy hopping.

MJ Thomas, yeah...it was extremely. I think that's why I never fully watched it...maybe. I'm not why I didn't sit down and watch it. I am dying to read TDP. It should be arriving to my library any day now!

Erin, I agree! Darcy and rockstar? C'mon! Oooh, both sound extremely good.
