My to be read and all the extras for 2008

There is a website that has a To BE READ (TBR) challenge for the year. I missed the deadline because I am totally and completely clueless sometimes. It makes perfect sense that your list would have to be in before 2008, doesn't it? I decided to still make my list of twelve and my alternatives and just set a personal goal to read them. I will undoubtedly read many more this year as I can't stand to not have a book to read in the house. The website is great because it offers you some ideas of what others are planning to read. For me this is a blessing and a curse because I always have a running list of TBR.
I really had a hard time narrowing down the 12 top for my list. These are in no particular order and the alternatives may win over the top. I guess it all depends on my library and friends.
