Historical fiction + Chaucer mix
I'm mostly interested in the blend of fantasy and Caribbean folklore that's advertised.
I very much enjoyed The Iron Thorn and can't wait to see what its sequel has in store!
This appears to be one of the few sci-fi books I know of that have a Native American element to them.
I have yet to read the last three (or four?) Bloody Jack books, but I still want this one. They are AMAZING and my county's library system is dumb for only having the first few.
Of course, a sci-fi retelling of a fairy tale is going to catch my interest.
I've read the other three books, though the only thing I really remember about them is that I enjoyed reading them.
I love Pierce's series, though sometimes they can be hard to keep up with. I have read the first two Beka Cooper books, though.
I absolutely adored Revis' first novel, Across the Universe, so of course I can't wait to read the sequel! I sent in an ARC request form to the publisher, but no luck so far. :(
Another dystopian sequel that I'm super-looking forward to!
And, of course, there's all of these dystopian sequels; for most of these, I own the first book but haven't read it yet:
Outpost by Ann Aguirre (Feiwel and Friends, Sep. 2012)
Crossed by Ally Condie (Dutton Juvenile, Nov. 1, 2011)
The Death Cure by James Dashner (Delacorte, Oct. 11, 2011)
Fever by Lauren DeStefano (Simon & Schuster, Feb. 21, 2011)
Pandemonium by Lauren Oliver (HarperTeen, Mar. 6, 2011)
Insurgent by Veronica Roth (HarperCollins, May 28, 2011)
If anyone has an ARC of any of these books, I might be open to an ARC swap...or I'll pay shipping...or something. I'm not to the selling-my-soul part yet, though.
What books are you looking forward to?
