My Picks From the New 52

I've posted different variations of my picks in a couple of different places in this site already, but I have changed them slightly once again. Therefore, I decided to write my first blog in order to list my picks and why I'm picking them.
 
1. Batman- I loved Scott Snyder's run on Detective and can't wait to see what he does with the real Batman.
 
2. Batman and Robin- I liked Tomasi's previous 3 issue arc on Batman and Robin and am willing to give this title a shot.
 
3. Nightwing- Nightwing has always been one of my favorite characters. I've always loved how they matured Dick Grayson from Robin into being a more independent hero (though he'll always be a part of the Bat-family).
 
4. Batgirl- I would have rather them brought Cassandra Cain back as Batgirl, but I like Barbara Gordon and have read that Simone does the best Babs stories, so I'm going to give this title a shot.
 
5. Teen Titans- I'm going to pick up this title mostly because it is the only one right now featuring Red Robin (which, as with Nightwing, I love how they matured Tim Drake into being a more independent hero). I also liked a lot of the X-Men stories that Scott Lobdell did in the 90s, and I am holding out hope that they re-introduce Raven into this title at some point.
 
6. GL: New Guardians- Kyle Rayner has always been my favorite GL, so I will most likely at least try this for a while. I had thought about getting Geoff Johns' Green Lantern comic too, but I decided that, if it got good reviews, I would probably just follow that in the trades like I have been doing with the rest of his run. (I am still pretty far behind in it. The last Green Lantern trade that I read was Agent Orange).
 
7. Justice League- This looks like it will be a fun book to read.
 
8. Justice League Int'l- This also looks like a fun book, reminiscent of Justice League Europe that came out back in  the early 90s.
 
9. Wonder Woman- I have never collected any Wonder Woman comics before, but I like the character well enough and loved Azzarello's Flashpoint Batman tie-in, and I also love mythology. Therefore, I shall give this book a chance.

Out of all of yours I have only definitely decided on one: Teen Titans (Tim is my favorite DC character) .
 
I'm a bit worried that Batgirl is just going to lose the last 20 years of her story which was what really made me like her.

My top picks will be the same but maybe in a diff order.

@fps_dean: I actually didn't put them in order of preference. I just went through the Bat-books that I wanted first, and then the other titles that I wanted as I thought of them. If I were to put them in order of preference it would probably look something more like this:
 
1.  Batman
2. Justice League
3. Batman and Robin
4. GL: New Guardians
5. Nightwing
6. Teen Titans
7. Batgirl
8.  Justice League Int'l
9. Wonder Woman

Well that's fine either way, I was thinking of doing the same anyway.

Justice League Dark and Swamp Thing. 
 
I might pick up Catwoman and Grifter if they get good reviews.
