Guest Post by Danya from A Tapestry of Words
As 2011 winds down, it's time to start thinking, not just about the past year of reading...but what next year holds for us! And from what I've seen, it is looking equally — if not more — fabulous for YA in 2012.
Here's a list of a few books I'm eagerly awaiting, organized by genre:
The Way We Fall by Megan Crewe — love the premise of a disease being the main antagonist and everyone being put into quarantine. Sounds amazing!
The Selection by Kiera Cass — a competition for marriage to royalty in a dystopian society? I am intrigued...
Article 5 by Kristen Simmons — I like that this one takes place in the not-too-distant future, and the protagonist can remember what life was like before. Also, I'm a sucker for love spanning across enemy lines...
Tempest by Julie Cross — this book both works for my "New Adult" reading challenge AND sounds just plain awesome!
Queen of Glass by Sarah J. Maass — I've been looking forward to this one for quite a while now! Originally it was supposed to be released in 2011, but it's been bumped to 2012. Can't wait for this story of Cinderella...as an assassin!
Grave Mercy by R. L. LaFevers —I've been hearing pretty much nothing but good things about this book, and everything being said makes me think this will be very much my kind of read. Plus, love the striking cover!
A Breath of Eyre by Eve Marie Mont — going inside the world of Jane Eyre? Um, YES PLEASE.
Tokyo Heist by Diana Renn — an art heist in Japan! What's not to love?
http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/12143472-the-traitor-and-the-tunnel">The Traitor in the Tunnel by Y.S. Lee — these books are so much fun! Mary and James have such a wonderful dynamic. Plus, the author is Canadian, which is always a bonus :) Really looking forward to the 3rd in this series!
Thanks very much, Brenna, for letting me share with your readers a few of the 2012 releases I'm itching to get my hands on!
Readers, what books are you really looking forward to in 2012? Are any of these on your list?
