"Before you, Bella, my life was like a moonless night. Very dark, but there were stars, points of light and reason. ...And then you shot across my sky like a meteor. Suddenly everything was on fire; there was brilliancy, there was beauty. When you were gone, when the meteor had fallen over the horizon, everything went black. Nothing had changed, but my eyes were blinded by the light. I couldn’t see the stars anymore. And there was no more reason, for anything."

Top Ten Books That I Can't Wait to Read in 2012
I have so many books that I'm planning on reading in 2012 that have been sitting on my shelf for way too long.  Here's the rundown:

1.  The Hunger Games: Suzanne Collins - I'm pretty sure I am the last person on earth who hasn't yet read this book or the two follow ups.  If I don't read anything else this year, I AM READING THIS BOOK!!

2.  The Book Thief: Marcus Zusak - Again, I'm pretty sure I'm the last person on earth to have not read this one too.  I've heard amazing things about it and I'm really looking forward to it!

3.  The Help: Kathryn Stockett - My best friend finished this one in two days and she isn't even a reader...I can't wait to sit down with this one and lose myself for a few hours. 

4.  My Life Next Door: Huntley Fitzpatrick - One, I love the cover of this one.  Two, the premise sounds amazing.  And three, I don't read enough YA contemporary so this one definitely fits the bill!

5.  Sweet Evil: Wendy Higgins - Amazing Cover...good description too..lol

6.  The Girl in the Park: Mariah Fredericks - I love the premise of this one.  Mystery and intrigue.  Plus it takes place in New York which is one place I someday hope to visit.

7.  Outlander: Diane Gabaldon - I have wanted to read this one for years and years, but the size is intimidating.  I am making it my personal goal to read this in 2012!

8.  Shine: Lauren Myracle - I have a signed copy of this one that I received at a book signing last year that I have never gotten around to reading.  I really, really want to read this one too so I'm hoping to get it accomplished in 2012.

9.  Sapphire Blue: Kerstin Geir - I have been waiting on pins and needles for this one to get translated and released in the US.  According to Amazon, it should be here in October of 2012.  I cannot wait!! Ruby Red was amazing!!

10.  Bewitching: Alex Flinn - I love, love, love Flinn's books and this is a spin off of my all time favorite Beastly.  Really looking forward to this one!

I absolutely loved the Help. And I have a horrible habit of never reading anything but YA. So that is a true indication that this book really is wonderful! I hope you enjoy it. Happy 2012.
