Musing Mondays

This week’s musing asks…

Are there any “raved reads” –books that everyone seems to be talking about– that you’re hoping to get read this year, yourself? What books are they, and why are you hoping to read them? Is it because you want to say you’ve read it? Or, would you have chosen to read it, even if you’d discovered it yourself, and no one was raving about it?

There are many, many books I've heard fabulous things about and would like to read. Here's just a few of them:

The Book Thief by Markus Zusak

The Shadow of the Wind by Carlos Ruiz Zafón

The Prague Cemetery by Umberto Eco

Delirium by Lauren Oliver

The Scorpio Races by Maggie Steifvater

I would definitely pick these up even without the amount of people praising them, mainly because their subject matter interests me.

The Book Thief was so good. I really enjoyed it and hope to read some of Zusak's other novels this year.

Delirium by Lauren Oliver is great, I really think you will love it if you pick it up. Thanks for stopping by my Musing Mondays. [:

The Book Thief is, I admit, one hyped book that I am planning on reading. But generally being hyped does not get me to read a book.
