What do you plan to read in 2012?

Since someone did a what did you read in 2011 thread, I thought it might be a good idea to do a what do you plan to read thread. I have alot of stuff I want to read, but some of it is more important to me that other parts. So here is just the stuff I own that I have yet to read, but plan to in the next few months. Most of the series, I only own some of but I plan to read the whole series by the end of the year.
Dresden Files book 5-13

The Hollows book 2-10
Southern Vampire Mysteries: I own Dead to the World (book 4) and Dead in the Family (book 10) but now I'm not sure if I want to go all the way to DitF, so that might either be sold or donated to the library.
Star Trek: MU: Rise Like Lions, TOS: Entropy Effect, The Children of Kings, TOS: How Much for Just the Planet, SCE Collections, DTI: Watching the Clock, Lives of Dax, NF: Blind Man's Bluff, TNG: Indistinguishable from Magic, MyrU: Shattered Light, Van: Declassified, TOS: Mere Anarchy 4-6, Rihansuu series, anniversary anthologies

Star Wars:Survivor's Quest, Outbound Flight, Death Troopers, Luke Skwalker and the Shadows of Mindor, Labyrinth of Evil, ROTS novelization, New Jedi Order series, Legacy of the Force series, Lost Tribe of the Sith series,

A Song of Ice and Fire books 2-5,

Other series/Standalone: W13: A Touch of Fever, Eureka Substitution Method, The Glades: Pilot script, , Gulliver's Travels, Don Quixote, Three Musketeers, A Tale of Two Cities, Adventures of Tom Sawyer, Consider Phlebas, Psych: A Mind is a Terrible Thing to Read, The Last Days of Krypton, Grimm's Fairy Tales, Level 26: Dark Origins, , Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea, The Legend of Sleepy Hollow and Other Writings, The Time Machine and The Invisible Man, The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde and Other Stories, Frankenstein, The 4400 post finale duology, Dracula, Dune, Sandstorm, Discworld books (not sure how many, but definitely some of them), Dune, Map of Bones, The Last Oracle, Pillars of the Earth, Spider-Man movie novelizations, X-Men movie novelizations, The Amber Spyglass, Rising Sun, The Bourne Identity, The Hunt For Red October, Somewhere Inside: One Sister's Captivity and Her Sister's Fight to Bring Her Home, Kitchen Confidential, Always Looking Up: The Adventures of an Incurable Optomist, Heat Wave, Night Watch (Original Russion Title: Nochnoy Dozor), Eragon
Yeah, it's a pretty big list, but I hope to put a good size dent in it, if not complete it, by the end of the year.
Oops: Forgot about Casino Royale, and the first Ent: Romulan War book.

Damn, I was just thinking that when I saw the title.

I'll be reading the obvious Trek novels this year, the finale of Vanguard, the new Voyager novel and David Mack's trilogy.

I'm not sure with DRGIII's duology, Rough Beasts isn't that great, nor is it bad, but I've just not enjoyed it, unlike his other novels, it feels too dry and he's lost some of the omph from is writing which made Serpents among the Ruins and Olympus Descending so bloody brilliant.

As for non Trek novels, I'll probably be reading: Rankin's new novel, Tinker, Tailor, Solider, Spy(which I must order from the library), The Lord of the Rings trilogy (which is a reread) and a book by the name of In Cold Blood by Truman Capote which the missus has been trying to get me to read for months, I don't really plan that far ahead when it comes to what I'll read over the course of a whole year.

Re: What do you plan to read in 2012?

I plan to get caught up with the current Trek chronology from Titan: Sword of Damocles on and read the new novels as they come out. Other than that, I'll probably take a break from Trek for a while. I'd like to start the Star Wars novels by re-reading Zahn's Thrawn trilogy and then read through his other SW novels. I'll probably catch up on some R.A. Salvatore by reading his Neverwinter series and then a little of Harry Turtledove's alternate history.

There are so many directions I could go after I get caught up with the current Trek novels that it boggles the mind. I guess we'll see where I go this time next year when we're looking back at 2012!

And it's really good (says the editor).

Meanwhile, if we're plugging our upcoming books: Besides my new Trek book (due out this month!), I also have Riese: Kingdom Falling, a prequel to the Syfy webseries, coming out in June.

And, just to stay on-topic, I'm working my way through James Rollins' Sigma Force novels.

Given I couldn't stomach Seize the Fire, I'm avoiding that one like the plague.

Just a heads-up about SNW10... I got it used earlier this year, and was somewhat disappointed. The Grand Prize winner, "The Smell of Dead Roses," is indeed very good. And there are some other really nice stories. (The second prize winner, "Echoes," not included, in my opinion.) Overall, however, I found it less enjoyable than SNW9, the only other one I've been able to get my hands on. It felt like there were more clunkers in this volume. But YMMV. Hope you like it better than I did!
