First of all, MERRY CHRISTMAS everyone! I know I already have a post up just to greet all of you but I just wanted to say it again. Adele of Persnickety Snark is hosting the FIVE Challenge. Click on the link to learn more about it. Today’s theme is most anticipated 2011 titles. Here are my picks:
The Piper’s Son by Melina Marchetta – This is the companion novel to Saving Francesca and has been out in Australia for quite a while (lucky Aussies!) and it was even my Want Books pick back in October. I’ve been hearing good things about it and I have high expectations since I loved Jellicoe Road.
The other books in my list don’t even have covers or summaries yet:
Bitterblue by Kristin Cashore – I can’t wait to read this companion novel to both Graceling and Fire. I have a feeling some of my favorite characters in Graceling will make appearances in this one. I wonder how much has changed in the seven kingdoms after several years have passed.
Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins – This is the companion novel to the popular Anna and the French Kiss, a wonderful debut that came out this year. Can’t wait to see what Stephanie Perkins will produce next.
That’s it for me, I hope you’re all having a great Christmas Day. 🙂 What are some of your anticipated YA titles in 2011?
