A Look Ahead - Five Books I'm Excited About for 2012

Another year has flown. Can you believe it? Gotta finish up some holiday shopping so I'm going to launch right into my list of books to look out for in 2012:

1. INSURGENT, Veronica Roth - Who isn't excited for this sequel to last year's smash hit, DIVERGENT? I can't wait to see more of Roth's world. And Four, of course. I can't wait to see more of Four.
2. DAUGHTER OF SMOKE AND BONE #2, Laini Taylor - This was, I think, my favorite book of 2011. I miss Karou and her blue hair and badass ways.
(As an aside, there are so many wonderful sequels to look forward to: SHATTER ME #2, GIRL OF FIRE AND THORNS #2, Beth Revis' A MILLION SUNS, Lauren Oliver's PANDEMONIUM... I mean... The book two love alone is outrageous!)
3. GRAVE MERCY, RL Lefevers - This book was described to me by the publisher as, "assassin nuns," and "George RR Martin for teens." My answer? Yes, please.
4. SHADOW AND BONE, Leigh Bardugo - Fantasy inspired by Tsarist Russia... This one sounds soooo unique and delicious, and Leigh happens to be completely awesome. Can't wait for this!
5. TIME BETWEEN US, Tamara Ireland Stone - I had the privilege of reading the first few chapters and oh my, this is going to be a great one.
(As another aside, if you're looking to stock up your TBR pile, head over to the Apocalypsies site. I want to read all of their books.)

Most importantly, I cannot wait for my fellow Muses' debut novels to come out!

What are you looking forward to reading next year?


You forgot to mention UNDER THE NEVER SKY, of course! Silly V ;-)

Hey, Tez! Yes. I'm excited for that one too. But I've already read it a few times :D

I believe Susan Kaye Quinn is working on the sequel to Open Minds for her Mindjack Trilogy and Brooke Johnson is working on the sequel to her novel Clockwork Giant.

The titles mentioned here all sound fabulous.

Oh wow! Honored to be included! (And you're rather awesome yourself :) INSURGENT is at the top of my list, too. I'd never heard of GRAVE MERCY, but sounds amaaaazing. Can't wait for 2012!
