BTW, my query will be up NEXT Wedneday on Lindsay's blog. I'll remind you guys to check it out when the time comes around. Thanks for the interest you've all shown. Can't wait to get some feedback.
I did a post a couple weeks back on the books I'm most anticipating this year. What I realized afterwards was that they're all sequels. So, in this post, I'll be sharing with you the debuts I want to read.
1. Under the Never Sky by Veronica Rossi: A book about a girl trying to survive in a wasteland while trying to avoid cannibals and falling for the guy who might be all wrong for her? Yeah, I'm in. I heard so many wonderful things about this over the last few months, and it's finally out. I'll be devouring this little gem very soon.
2. Everneath by Brodi Ashton: I love Greek Mythology. The story of Persephone is one of my faves. This story is based on that myth. Nikki was lured away by a guy we can only assume is Hades, the greek god of the underworld. Now she has the opportunity to return and say good-bye to her loved ones. Only thing, she loves her BF very much, and Cole, the guy playing the part of the villan/sexy god, makes it very difficult to do so.
3. Incarnate by Jodi Meadows: Once again, lots of good buzz. The whole reincarnation thing fascinates me. My extended family practices the Hindu religion, and this is a very big part of their belief system. I, myself, don't believe in it. But it's a neat idea. Being able to be born over again, to get right. But this story is about a girl who's 'new' to a world where reincarnation is very much a real thing. And she's seen as a threat of some kind. Add a bit of romance and I'm ready to read.
4.Cinder by Marissa Meyer: I've mentioned before my love for fairytale retellings. Cinder is a obviously a new take on the Cinderella story. And in this one, she's a cyborg. Holy, how cool and original is that? I like a little bit of sci-fi with my romance.
5. The Selection by Kiera Cass: I stumbled on this book over at amazon. The premise sounds very interesting. But I'm afraid it's one of those that could go either way, with love or hate. America is the MC and she's selected, along with 30 some odd girls, to go compete for the Prince's heart. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity. But America is already in love with someone else, a someone else she can't be with. And she has no desire to go and win over the Prince. Until she meets him, that is.
This is only a small taste of what I want to read. There are SO MANY more books I can't wait to pick up. Feel free to share with me some more that you all are looking forward to. Maybe I'll add them to my already sky high list.
