I’m very excited about a lot of titles coming out this year, but there are a few that I simply can’t wait to get my hands on! My top three (by release date):
I was absolutely enthralled by “Life as We Knew It,” the first book in this series. The writing was so fantastic, I really had to shake myself out of the story a few times (and stop myself from running to the store to stock my pantry). I’m not much for a book written in journal form, but it was absolutely necessary in this case, and it came off beautifully.
I can’t wait to see where the story goes, and knowing the strength of Susan Beth Pfeffer’s writing, it’s going to go somewhere you don’t expect.
The sequel to Shiver follows the story of Grace and the wolves of Mercy Falls.
Maggie says: “It’s about after. What happens after you discover there are werewolves in the wood, after you’ve fallen in love for the first time, after you’ve lost what you think you can’t live without, after you’ve become someone you can’t live with.” It’ll be interesting to see where the Sam and Grace story goes from here. Is Sam human? Is Grace? Or are they both something a little different, and how do they deal with that?
Hunger Games: Book 3 by Suzanne Collins (August 24, 2010)
This is obviously not the real cover – or even the real name…(I’ve heard that it might be entitled The Victors?)…but who cares! It’s the third book in this fabulous series.
I can’t wait to find out what Katniss is up to and what she decides to do about Peeta and Gale.
