Top Ten Tuesday: Books We Are Excited To Read in 2012
In no particular order:
1. "The Last Boyfriend" by Nora Roberts.
It's book two in her "Inn of Boonsboro" trilogy, coming out May 1st. I'm a Nora fan, so this is an automatic add.
2. "Hunger Games" by Suzanne Collins
I know, I know ... I'm late to the party on this one. I don't typically enjoy dark, dystopian stories, but I've had more than one good friend recommend this one -- and they've said my daughter would like it, too. So it's on my reading list for this year.
3. "Under the Moon" by Natalie J. Damschroder
I'm a big fan of the author's romantic suspense books, so am hoping this translates into fantasy/urban fantasy in this Entangled Press novel. The publisher has a great reputation, so I'm looking forward to this one.
4. "11/22/63: A Novel" by Stephen King
Time travel has always intrigued me, and Stephen King is a master writer -- so combine them together, and you have a book I'm dying to read.
5. The First Time
This a YA anthology I've had on my Nook for a few months. I really, really need to find the time to read it because -- seriously: In THE FIRST TIME, 25 young adult authors contribute 25 stories all about firsts: first loves, first kisses, first zombie slayings, and more.
How can you resist something that includes "first zombie slayings"?
6. Plague Town: An Ashley Parker Novel (Ashley Parker Novel 1)
This is *sort of* a cheat. I actually read this book when it was published before and LOVED it. I was never a big zombie fan, but this book made a believer of me. It had everything: suspense, horror, action, romance. And I can NOT wait until it's released again.
7. Celebrity In Death
I mentioned I was a Nora fan, right? Well that goes for her alter-ego, J. D. Robb as well.
8. The Son of Neptune [The Heroes of Olympus Book 2]
Okay, technically, my daughter is waiting for this... but she talks about how the first book ended on a cliffhanger and she can NOT wait for this next book, so it needed to be added. :-)
9. Animal Attraction (Berkley Sensation)
10. Animal Magnetism (Berkley Sensation)
I love, Love, LOVE Jill Shalvis. How did she have another series published and I missed it?
What are some books YOU can't wait to read this year? Help me add to my TBR list...
