1. The Impossible Knife of Memory by Laurie Halse Anderson
I'm currently reading this one right now. LHA is one of my favorite authors ever, not to mention how seasonally appropriate the cover is.
2. A Mad, Wicked Folly by Sharon Biggs Waller
SUFFRAGETTES! Artists! Cute boys! Life drawing classes! (That means naked.)
3. Avalon by Mindee Arnett
It's billed as being for Firefly fans, so obviously I am all over that. Plus I want to know what the heck that thing on the cover is. Though guessing is fun too. (Space junk! Wasp! Very small rocks! Cherries!*)
4. Control by Lydia Kang
I need some straight-up science fiction in my life. Plus, look at the cool glowy cover!
5. Roomies by Tara Altebrando and Sara Zarr
Anybody remember P.S. Longer Letter Later? That's what this book reminds me of, but the NA version.
6. Being Sloane Jacobs by Lauren Morrill
Cuteness, feels, ice skating, switched identities, a world of yes.
7. Cruel Beauty by Rosamund Hodge
From what I've heard from friends who've read this, it's a strange but wonderful retelling of Beauty and the Beast with some Greek myths thrown in for good measure.
8. Evertrue by Brodi Ashton
I LOVE THIS SERIES AND I MUST KNOW THE ENDING I MUST
9. Uninvited by Sophie Jordan
I love the concept of this one. A girl finds out, through genetic testing, that she has the murder gene. I haven't read Jordan's other books, but I'm totally curious about this one.
10. White Space by Ilsa J. Blick
This book is about a girl who can go INSIDE BOOKS and live in the white space between letters. I mean. I don't even know what that MEANS, but I like it.
BONUS: Backlist books I'm hoping to make time for!
The Host by Stephanie Meyer
Okay, yes, it's Stephanie Meyer. But I've heard interesting things about it, some of my friends really like it, the movie intrigued me against my better judgment, and I own it. Too bad it's like eleventy thousand pages.
Asunder by Jodi Meadows
I was a huge fan of Incarnate. I need to read the second book, Asunder, before Infinite comes out in January!
