1) "City of Fallen Angels" by Cassandra Clare
Release Date: April 5th, 2011
This should come to no surprise to anyone, since I practically worship Cassie. When I thought that "The City of Glass" was the last book in the "Mortal Instruments" series I was heartbroken, but *happy dance* Cassie is writing three more books in the series= more Jace for me to love.
2) Rachel Vincent's WIP
So you might be like, "What in the world is she talking about?" Well over in the world of Twitter Rachel has been posting some little snippets of her current WIP that is going to be released in Fall of 2011. I have no idea what it is about, the title, or any of that jazz, all I know is that it is an adult book and that it is clearly going to be amazing since Rachel is writing it. Here are a few of the little teasers from Twitter:
- "If I’m going to have to beat the information out of you, we should really get started."
- "Something inside him broke; I saw it happen. I *made* it happen, and I hated myself for it. "
- "That looked like fun. I call dibs on the next over-the-top destruction of evidence."
3) "The Gathering" by Kelley Armstrong
Release Date: April 5, 2011
So I know that this new little trilogy centres around the Phoenix Project kids, but I really, really, really hope that it has my darn Derek in it! Even a little tiny mention and I will be happy! Oh, and I suppose I will be happy with mention of Chloe, Simon and Tory too...
4) "Defiance" by Lili St. Crow
Release Date: April 1, 2011
So "Jealousy" was a complete cliff-hanger and I NEED TO KNOW WHAT HAPPENS TO MY DARN GRAVES!!! Seriously. And I wanna see Dru become even more kick-ass. And I wanna see Ash all un-broken and whatnot. And I wanna see more of Dibs in all of his nervousness cuteness. Okay, so I just wanna see all of the darn characters!
5) "Desires of the Dead" by Kimberly Derting
Release Date: February 15, 2011
In my opinion "The Body Finder" was hands down the best book of 2010 and therefore I obviously cannot wait for its sequel! Plus, Jay Heaton is my new favourite book crush...
6) "Bloodlines" by Richelle Mead
Release Date: August sometime I believe
So even though Rose won't be narrating this book (instead it will be narrated by Jill/ Adrian/ Eddie/ Sydney), I do think that the book will still be decent- Oh who am I kidding? The book will still be fantabulous (but please, please, please have some Dimitri and Rose in there!).
7) "Angelfire" by Courtney Allison Moulton
Release Date: February 15th, 2011
So I think that this book sounds amazing... Kinda reminiscent of my dear Shadowhunters, add in a kick-ass sounding bad boy and I think that you have a perfect story.
8) "Demon Glass" by Rachel Hawkins
Release Date: Not February 22nd anymore I believe... Early March now.
The last sentence of "Hex Hall" book was such a friggin cliffhanger! I honestly gasped out loud when I read it and was all like, "No! Noooo! NOOOO!!!" (getting progressively louder with each "No"). I cannot wait to see how this book is going to unfold.
9) "Illusions" by Aprilynne Pike
Release Date: May 3, 2011
So "Spells" completely left me heartbroken (darn you cliffhanger endings!). So yes, this is an obvious must read...
10) "Afterlife" by Claudia Gray
Release Date: March 8th, 2011
So this story keeps getting more and more ridiculous with each new book- but in a good way! I cannot wait to see how Lucas adjusts and how Bianca will continue to deal with the whole wraithiness dealio.
And I am going to take a page from Jessica over at A GREAT Read and make a few notable mentions:
