Looking Forward to 2010

In addition to the books I'll be reading for the 2010 Debut Authors Challenge, there are lots of other books that I am looking forward to reading in 2010.  Many of my favorite authors have books coming out in 2010. 

Here is a short list of books I am eagerly (and patiently) waiting for:

The Dead-Tossed Waves - Carrie Ryan March 9, 2010
Not a sequel in the strictest sense of the word, more of a companion novel. The Dead-Tossed Waves is told from the perspective of Mary’s daughter. Here’s a tiny description: One reckless moment, and half of Gabry’s generation is dead, the other half imprisoned. Now Gabry only knows one thing: she must face the forest of her mother’s past in order to save herself and the one she loves. Those two sentences definitely make me want to pick up The Dead-Tossed Waves.

A Conspiracy of Kings - Megan Whalen Turner, April, 2010
I have to be honest. . .I’ve already read this one. One of the perks of being a librarian is that occasionally you might get sent an ARC or two, an extra special perk if it’s an ARC of a book you can’t wait to read (for me the ARC for A Conspiracy of Kings was an extra special perk). Megan Whalen Turner is one of those authors whose readers willingly wait years for their next book.  I just can't wait until everyone else has read it too. . .
(Look for a review a bit closer to the publication date)

The White Cat (Curse Workers #1) - Holly Black,  May 4, 2010
From Amazon: The White Cat introduces Holly Black’s new world. Cassel has always known he killed Lila, but now the pieces are starting not to fit. Intriguing right? I thought so.  Then I saw the cover. . . WOW!

The Demon’s Covenant - Sarah Rees Brennan May 18, 2010
A small snippet from Amazon: The Demon's Covenant is the sequel to The Demon's Lexicon. Mae was always in control, but suddenly everyone she trusted is lying--and in danger. Sounds very interesting. . .add that to a good helping of Nick, possibly with a sword and we're in for an awesome read.

Hunger Games #3 - Suzanne Collins August 24, 2010
At the end of Catching Fire, the districts of Panem were in revolt against the Capital. Katniss learned that District 12 doesn’t exist anymore and that the Capital has Peeta. Who will Katniss choose? Peeta - the one who has been with her through two Hunger Games? Gale - her old hunting partner and the person who knight know her best?

A Clockwork Angel (Infernal Devices #1) - Cassandra Clare August 31, 2010
Cassandra Clare’s The Mortal Instruments is a great series filled with demon hunters, werewolves, vampires, warlocks, and fairies set mostly in present day New York City. With the Infernal Devices, Clare takes her readers to Victorian England, where they will find out more about the Lightwood and Herondale families, and who could forget Magnus Bane. We could all use a little more Magnus.

What books are you looking forward to reading in 2010?

**Edited on 1/4/10 to fix some grammatical errors.  I had this teacher in fifth grade that would make us redo reports if she found more than 3 spelling or grammar error on any page.  So, in homage to her I had to come back anf fix the errors I found.  ~M
