Books I'm Excited to Read in 2012:
1. Fracture by Megan Miranda
I've already read this one, but it was awhile ago already and I'm all excited to read a finished copy when they are released.
2. Black Heart (Curse Workers #3) by Holly Black
I absolutely love this series. Cassel is a brilliant narrator and I can't wait to see if everything ends up okay for him in the end or if it in fact goes to shit.
3. Clockwork Princess (Infernal Devices #3) by Cassandra Clare (hopefully in 2012)
I haven't actually read the second one, but I'm in the middle of re-reading the first one and I remembered just how good these books are. They've overtaken the Mortal Instruments in terms of series ranking (which I love but kind of lost me at the fourth one because by that point I couldn't remember anything). Steampunk shadowhunters. England. I know I've said it before but I'll say it again: pure awesome.
4. City of Lost Souls (Mortal Instruments #5) by Cassandra Clare
Just because I think I like the Infernal Devices more than the second trilogy of the Mortal Instruments doesn't mean I'm not excited for the next one. These books are addictive, I won't deny it.
5. Isla and the Happily Ever After by Stephanie Perkins
I absolutely adored both Anna and Lola. I know Stephanie Perkins won't disappoint with the last installment.
6. The Rivals by Daisy Whitney
The Mockingbirds was one of the few young adult books I was able to read during my senior year of college and it has totally stuck with me. I was able to get an ARC (with the original cover, thankfully) that I am waaay excited to read.
7. The Fault in Our Stars by John Green
John Green does some nice work, but I wasn't that big of a fan of Paper Towns, probably because I had read Looking for Alaska before it. I'm curious to see what he does with a totally different type of book. Also, I pre-ordered it so I could get a signed copy.
8. A Midsummer's Nightmare by Kody Keplinger
I read Shut Out by Keplinger last year and I really liked it. I'm looking forward to reading a few more quality contemporary YA reads. I didn't read contemporary for awhile, but there were some last year that really convinced me to delve more into the genre.
9. The Story of Us by Deb Caletti
Ditto on the contemporary stuff. Also, I want to give Deb Caletti another shot because I didn't like the one book I read by her, but my sister loves her stuff. This one had a cool contemporary premise, so I'm excited to give it a try.
10. Bitterblue by Kristin Cashore
I'm excited for this one to come out so I can finally read the Graceling series. I know that they are companion books so I don't technically need to remember everything (especially since this one is a prequel) but I'd still like to read them together. And I've been waiting quite some time for this one.
