Exciting New Titles

Top Ten Books
These are the top ten books I am excited about that I either picked up at BEA or are coming out this summer.

1. Sapphique by Catherine Fisher coming out in December from Penguin. This is the sequel to Incarceron, for ages 12 and up. I will be giving away a copy this summer, contest details to come soon.

2. Reckless by Cornelia Funke publishes in September from Little Brown and is for children ages 10 and up (middle grade). It looks amazing and was well worth the hour wait to have my copy signed by the author.

3. The Search for Wondla by Tony DiTerlizzi publishes at the end of September from Simon & Schuster and is for children ages 10 and up (middle grade). From the author of the Spiderwick Chronicles this promises to entertain.

4. Linger by Maggie Stiefvater is available in July! The sequel to Shiver this YA paranormal romance will hopefully answer a lot of questions I was left with after devouring Shiver.

5. Guardian of the Gate by Michelle Zink book two in the Prophecy of the Sisters Series coming in August. Another YA paranormal with a little romance thrown in. Very excited to know what is going to happen with Alice and Lia.

6. Torment by Lauren Kate coming in September this is the second book in the Fallen Series, YA paranormal with angels. I am definitely team Daniel!

7. Ascendant by Diana Peterfreud the sequel to Rampant (which I need to read ASAP) comes out in late September from Harper Teen. I am intrigued by the idea of a unicorn hunter and Rampant has gotten great reviews as a YA paranormal.

8. Halo by Alexandra Adornetto published in September and is a YA dealing with angels. Beware though this is book one in a trilogy that is scheduled to be finished in late 2012. I honestly picked this one up for the cover it is so stunning, I am excited to read and see if the story can match it.

9. Firelight by Sophie Jordan publishing in early September from Harper Teen this is Ms. Jordan's first YA novel. Unlike her historical romances (I am reading In Scandal They Wed now, and it is very good) this will be a paranormal tale.

10. The Agency: The Body at the Tower by Y. S. Lee is the sequel to The Agency: A Spy in The House from Candlewick Press publishes in August. This book is for children ages 12 and up and I am excited to read about this world set in Victorian England, where there is a all-female detective unit protecting Queen and country.
