(out of shear boredom, needing to keep track, and wanting to show formatting who's boss - not me apparently)
I have seen The Victors listed as the title, but is this confirmed? I am assuming not since neither Amazon, B&N, or Goodreads have it listed as such. I mean, who isn't anticipating this book?! Only fools. I bet the president has a copy frickin' preordered. Katniss will choose Gale, Peeta and Haymitch will die.
2. Will Grayson, Will Grayson by John Green, David Levithan
I am so excited for another John Green novel, I just cannot contain myself! Add David Levithan and the combo is like Reese's Peanut Butter Cups, my favorite in so many ways. This is sure to be on the top until...July.
3. The Scorch Trials (Maze Runner #2) by James Dashner
The Maze Runner blew my mind. The second installment is sure to create more questions, but I hope a few get answered too, otherwise, I just may perish. RIP (insert lovable character's name that dies, but I don't want to spoil anything for those that haven't read the first book.)
I have to admit, I am usually incredulous when it comes to debut novels, but between the cover and the amazing press this book has been getting since way into last year, I am considering it not only a sure thing, but one of my must-haves.
5. The Kane Chronicles, Book One by Rick Riordan
Okay, so I hate the cover...but I didn't particularly care for the Percy Jackson and the Olympians covers either. Oh, and we all know it's what lies inside that really matters and if this series is half as good as PJ&O, then it'll be amazing. It's a sure hit, especially coming off the movie release of The Lightning Thief.
The cover is amazing and, well, so was Linger, so this is sure to be a pleaser. I have to stop myself from calling this series, "Twilight with a good editing job." I will. Hopefully this book will sell it. And, I likey me some werewolves. Sorry, had to.
7. Saving Maddie by Varian Johnson
Promise not to laugh? Promise? I have Madeline picked out as a girl's name and obviously Maddie for short. When I saw the title and that is by Varian Johnson, I immediately said, "I want." Bad me, though. I haven't even read the synopsis.
8. Behemoth by Scott Westerfeld
Scott and I go way back, okay, well his books and I do. At this time, I have not read Leviathan, since it has been on hold at the public library since it was published, but I have heard enough good things about the first book that I am sure to like the second. Also, the cover is sure to be gorgeous.
9. Bitterblue by Kristen Cashore
A) I love Kristen Cashore. B) I really liked Bitterblue in Graceling, I cannot wait to see her as an Elizabeth, or will she be a Victoria? C) I love Kristen Cashore
10. Crescendo by Becca Fitzpatrick
I have also been on hold at the PL for Hush, Hush. Not only does the book look promising, the cover is powerful. Book two will be a sure thing.
