Books I’m Looking Forward To In 2011

I’ve never written a post of this kind before but then I’ve not had so many releases at once that I can’t wait to read.

Book cover

Alex Bell: Lex Trent Fighting With Fire – The second in the Lex Trent series. I enjoyed the first a lot and so it only makes sense to read the next. Bell’s series is more Terry Pratchett than, say, Tolkien, and it’s a style that’s easy to read and lots of fun. This book is set for release around February.

Book cover

Cat Clarke: Entangled – I’ve seen this mentioned on a few blogs and added the author on Twitter so I’ve been reading a lot more about it since then and I have to say the plot sounds brilliant. And just look at that cover!

Book cover

Kimberly Derting: Desires Of The Dead – This book carries on from The Body Finder which was a surprise favourite for me. I love the way that Derting isn’t scared to be truthful and push boundaries.

Book cover

Lauren Oliver: Delirium – I don’t think there are many people out there who read YA and have not read Before I Fall. With such a fantastic novel this year, having Oliver’s next book on my list was no question.

So two series’ additions, a second novel, and a debut, all out within the first three months of 2011. And for someone who said they weren’t going to get into the whole paranormal thing I’ve lost my path.

Which new releases are you looking forward to next year?

I love the Delirium cover. I plan to read Before I Fall sometime next year and hope the follow up is just as good.

Charlie: Enjoy Before I Fall! The success of the book was in the details and the way Oliver handled the situation which definitely bodes well for her future work.

I didn’t read Before I Fall, but Delirium looks so good! I’m looking forward to Jose Saramago’s last novel, which I’ve heard is coming out next year.

Charlie: I read your review of the last book of his you read, it sounded quite different. How many books has he released?
