After looking ahead at the last two months of the year and realizing somewhat sadly that the only release I’m looking forward to is Fate’s Edge by Ilona Andrews on November 29, I made a list of what books I’m looking forward to in 2012 and what reading goals I have for the end of 2011. These are the books that I have prioritized to read before the year is out (in random order), either because they are very worthy books that have been languishing on the TBR for too long or I need to read them to complete a challenge:
It’s definitely doable but it doesn’t leave me a lot of room for other reads to come up. We’ll see what happens. Self-challenges are flexible.
Since I needed some new releases to anticipate, here’s a list of auto-buy books coming out at the first of next year:
Cinder by Marissa Meyer (Jan 3) (currently reading)
Midnight in Austenland by Shannon Hale (Jan 3) (which I also already have from Netgalley *yay*)
The Fault in Our Stars by John Green (Jan 10) (already preordered for a signed copy!)
Nine Uses for an Ex-Boyfriend by Sarra Manning (February 2)
Now that I’m at it I may as well add the spring TBR list (so far):

I’ll save the rest of the year for later, but let me know if I’m missing anything from the first half of 2012 and if there’s anything I must read before the end of this year.
P.S. And I also want to make this:
