It’s 2012! No, truly!
Here’s a couple of things we’re looking forward to getting.
Variant, Robison Wells. The author describes this as dystopian-ish. Other people have suggested that if you enjoyed Divergent by Veronica Roth and the Gone series by Michael Grant then this should be right up your alley. From Amazon.com:
“Benson Fisher thought that a scholarship to Maxfield Academy would be the ticket out of his dead-end life. He was wrong. Now he’s trapped in a school that’s surrounded by a razor-wire fence. A school where video cameras monitor his every move. Where there are no adults. Where the kids have split into groups in order to survive. Where breaking the rules equals death. But when Benson stumbles upon the school’s real secret, he realizes that playing by the rules could spell a fate worse than death, and that escape—his only real hope for survival—may be impossible.”
Fallen in Love, Lauren Kate (February). For lovers of the Fallen series, here’s a collection of four (longish) short stories set in the Middle Ages. They feature Luce and Daniel, but also fill you in on how other characters like Roland and Arriane got to be who they are.
Thanks Stephanie for the tips.
Incidentally also, Rapture, the final novel in the Fallen series, will be released in about June/July this year. We will let you know when it’s available for reserving.
Other things in the long range forecast for 2012 include (for example):
- - The Fault in Our Stars, John Green (early this year). John Green! Long time no see!
- - Pandemonium, Lauren Oliver (early this year). The sequel to Delirium.
- - A Million Suns, Beth Revis (early this year). The sequel to Across the Universe.
- - Fear, Michael Grant (May). The second to last in the Gone series.
- - Insurgent, Veronica Roth (May/June). The sequel to Divergent (obvs.).
- - City of Lost Souls, Cassandra Clare (June)
- - The Rise of Nine, Pittacus Lore (August/September)
Plus some that will sneak up and surprise you. Must start a to-read list.
