I heard great things about this author and I love the concept!

This sounds major awesome and I can't wait to get stuck in!

Love story?  Zombies?  Yep, I'm there:)



Wolfspring Chronicles: Unleashed by Nancy Holder & Debbie Vigue
A retelling of King Lear - this sounds really, really good!

The Adventures of the New Cut Gang by Phillip Pullman
I haven't read any of Philip Pullmans books (!!!) - maybe I should start here?

Runelights by Joanne Harris
I still really need to read Runemarks - the first in this series - I have it on good authority it's brilliant!



Inheritance by Christopher Paolini
Do I need to say anything about this one?

The Haunting of Charity Delafield by Ian Beck
This story was inspired by the cover image - a gorgeous looking book and it sounds absolutely amazing.  I can't wait to get a copy in my hands!

Kiss, Date, Love, Hate by Luisa Plaja
Squeeeeee!  I can't wait for this one.  LOVE the concept and the cover is awesome!

Mortal Kiss 2: Fool's Silver by Alice Moss
A friend of mine has just read the first in this series and claims I will love it.  She hasn't been wrong so far!

Desert Angel by Charlie Price
This just sounds fab!  And I adore the cover.



Now Is The Time For Running by Michael Williams
The pitch for this one at the blogger's brunch has made me desperate to read it.  It's obvious how much the team at Random House loved it so I'm really looking forward to it.

Sea Hearts by Margo Lanagan
I haven't read anything by this author yet - although I'm hoping to change that sound with Tender Morsels.  This sounds really good too!

No cover images yet for the following...

The Wood Queen by Karen Mahoney
Squeeeeee!  Xan, oh gorgeous Xan,  how I look forward to spending more time with you:)

The Flappers: Vixen by Jullian Larkin
I'm starting to get a real taste for books set in this time period.  Sounds great!

'Three days are left until the final storm that will destroy the world' ?  I so want this right now!

Starters by Lissa Price
This sounds truly awesome!  Cannot wait!

I'm anxious for the next book in the Flapper's series to come out. Have they changed the cover, because I thought I saw one a while back? I might be thinking of another series...
