Five books I can’t wait to get in 2010

(in order of release date)

A Conspiracy of Kings by Megan Whalen Turner – Possibly my favorite YA series of all time, and I’ve had to wait three years for this fourth book, so you’d better believe I’ll be at the book store bright and early on release day to find out what Eugenedies, Sophos, and the rest of them have gotten themselves into now.

This World We Live In by Susan Beth Pfeffer – Life As We Knew It was one of my favorite books read in 2007, and now we get to find out what happens after for Miranda and her family. I suspect it’ll be heart-wrenching, but that won’t stop me from grabbing it as soon as I can.

The Magic Thief: Found by Sarah Prineas – I adored my introduction to Conn’s world in Stolen, was intrigued by the twists and turns of Lost, and now am eagerly awaiting the chance to find out how this exciting trilogy will wrap itself up.

Hunger Games Book 3 (no title at present) by Suzanne Collins – Speaking of exciting trilogies… I suspect this is the most anticipated YA novel of 2010, and for good reason. After the cliffhanger ending of Catching Fire, waiting until the fall to find out who survives, who doesn’t, and where District 13 will take us is torture.

Real Live Boyfriends by E. Lockhart – I finish every Roo book desperately hoping there will be another, so I can spend more time with her awkward yet incredibly charming self. So it was to my great joy that I found out she’s getting a fourth book, even if I have to wait until the end of 2010 to get it!

What books are you most looking forward to pick up next year?

I am definitely looking forward to Real Live Boyfriends! (E. Lockhart is one of my favorite YA authors.)

There's Scarlett Fever (the sequel to Suite Scarlett) by Maureen Johnson. There's Will Grayson, Will Grayson by John Green and David Levithan. And The Unwritten Rule by Elizabeth Scott. And Something Like Fate by Susane Colasanti!

Book three
I am so excited for book three of the Hunger Games series after the cliff hanger in Catching Fire... I am dying... Just can't wait

Hunger Games Book 3 and Real Live Boyfriends! are definitely at the top of my 2010 list. I'm also really excited for Sea and Shadow Hills and Freefall and...yikes, it's hard to choose!

I found Life as We Knew It stunning - I don't know if I LIKED it, but it was very, very real. And sad. And scary. I'm going to have to read the sequel but I'm going to have to ensure lots of happy events take place afterwards to remove the mental fog of sad.

I'll check out the others too - it's so hard to find the gems in the minefield of YA fantasy/speculative fiction, especially now it's all infected with Twilight clones.
