  17. This is a great giveaway. I just pre-ordered The Lover's Dictionary last night. It was between that and Anna and the French Kiss. And looky-here, they both are part of your giveaway.

    Just like sarahem, I am looking forward to reading Dust & Decay. Rot and Ruin was one of my favorites of 2010 and I can't wait to read the prequel. I am also looking forward to reading Recovery Road by Blake Nelson.

    Thanks for hosting this giveaway!

    There are so many books I'm looking forward to in 2011. Every time I think of one another pops into my head. I've heard a lot of great reviews recently for Unearthly, so I'm really looking forward to that one now.

    ReplyDelete
  23. I am currently the most anxious for The Piper's Son by Melina Marchetta. I've developed a bit of an author crush on her and had one of those awkward/embarrassing fan girl moments when I heard this book was set for 2011 release. Sigh. I want it bad!

    ReplyDelete

    I'm looking forward to the Murakami books (1Q84) next year.

    ReplyDelete

  26. What a fantastic giveaway! I'm desperately waiting for numerous books, most of all Fins are Forever by Tera Lynn Childs because I thought the first one was ultra-cute, My Sister Lives on the Mantelpiece by Annabel Pitcher because it looks seriously intense, and Fall For Anything by Courtney Summers because the excerpt on her website is amazing.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Congrats on the followers! A couple I'm looking forward to in 2011 are The Arrow Chest by Robert Parry and Madame Tussaud by Michelle Moran.

  33. I just saw mel u's comment about River of Smoke which just jumped to the head of my TBR list for 2011 as it's the sequel to the fantastic Sea of Poppies by Amitav Ghosh.

    As for YA, Wither is my number one based on the cover alone (and I already have a copy) plus the new Elizabeth Scott and Sarah Dessen books. There are loads of others but those are probably my top picks!

  41. I loved Malinda Lo's Ash - can't wait for Huntress! Also, if Delirium isn't the best book ever written it will be quite the let down after all the rave reviews I have read (I'll try to go in with lower expectation than that, to be fair and all).
