Blog Update: I just added a Best Books of 2011 tab at the top of the blog. It features my fave books of 2011 so far!
Phew- this was a hard list to compile. There are a ridiculous number of books I’m dying to read this fall. The books I’ve listed below are just a few:
1Inheritance by Christopher Paolini- I’ve been waiting for a conclusion to this series since I started reading it in high school (that was 6 years ago…). I’m so excited to see how Paolini is going to wrap up this great series.
2The Iron Knight by Julie Kagawa- Although I still need to read The Iron Queen, I can’t wait to read this book! It’s taunting me from my NetGalley as we speak…
3Blood Spirits by Sherwood Smith- I read and adored Coronets and Steel by Smith and was left with a truly painful cliffhanger. I’m dying to get my hands on this book! If you love romantic fantasy-lite books with a sprinkling of history, this is your series.
4Legend by Marie Lu- I apparently cannot not rest until I’ve read every dystopian novel published this year. It does sound really, really good, and I just can’t help myself!
5Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi- This book sounds so unique. I don’t say this often, but I have a really strong feeling its going to book love at first sight!
6The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater- This book seems like selkies meet The Hunger Games. And, I’m not complainin’.
7The Pledge by Kimberly Derting- So dark…literally. The cover is of a girl in a black velvet hoodie on a black background. I love the combo of a caste-type society mixed with rebel causes.
8A Beautiful Dark by Jocelyn Davies- I’m willing to take a calculated risk with angels again in this book. The premise really got me!
9The Girl of Fire and Thorns by Rae Carson- Despite a cover redesign that I don’t like at all, I’m still super excited about this princess/politics-type novel.
10Crave by Melissa Darnell- I love the cover of this book, and its interesting spin on vampires and supernatural powers.
