Event hosted by A Life Bound by Books, Confessions of a Bookaholic, Fiktshun, and Two Chicks On Books
There are soooo many books that I’m looking forward to in 2012, but here are some from my WoW posts and other randomness.
• Insurgent by Veronica Roth – Um, duh. If you’ve already read Divergent, then I need no further explanation.
• For Darkness Shows the Stars by Diana Peterfreund – Another cover that I love but…Persuasion retelling! In space!
• Insignia by S.J. Kincaid – Lucky me, I already have this waiting for me on my shelf and I’m 99% sure it will be the first book of 2012 for me. It sounds fantastic and I can’t wait to dive in.
• This Is Not a Test by Courtney Summers – Zombies and a main character that has lost the will to live? Yes, please!
• Bitterblue by Kristin Cashore – I only just read Graceling and Fire recently, but I’ve fallen in love with the world Cashore created. I’m excited to hopefully see some familiar faces again (Po!) and I’m dreading learning more about that creepy mofo, Leck.
• Pandemonium by Lauren Oliver – ALEX!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Other than that, Lauren Oliver is one of my favorite authors and I will read anything she writes — this is no exception.
• Shadows Cast By Stars by Catherine Knutsson – This sounds like it has a different edge from the usual dysoptian reads so I’m eager to see if this is true. Plus, that cover!
• Partials by Dan Wells – I’ve only read good reviews for this one and it sounds so.damn.awesome. Let’s hope it meets my expectations!
• The Selection by Kiera Cass – Royalty and intrigue! I’m hoping I will devour this one.
Other books I’m looking forward to (lots of sequels!):
• Isla and the Happily Ever After by Stephanie Perkins
• Rebel Heart by Moira Young
• Daughter of Smoke & Bone #2 by Laini Taylor
• Clockwork Princess by Cassandra Clare
• Crown of Embers by Rae Carson
• Shadows by Ilsa J. Bick
• Fever by Lauren DeStefano
• Penryn & the End of Days #2 by Susan Ee
• Seraphina by Rachel Hartman
• Revived by Cat Patrick
• Second Chance Summer by Morgan Matson
• The Twelve by Justin Cronin
….and only a ton more.
Anything I should add to the list? What are you looking forward to?
