Top 2011 Books - Mini Challenge #1

Princess Bookie is holding a mini-challenge. Basically I have to name my top 5 most anticipated books of 2011. This was a bit hard, but I finally decided on my top 5.
The Piper's Son by Melina Marchetta

My #1 book has got to be The Piper's Son, the companion novel to Saving Francesca. Melina Marchetta is my favorite author, so anything by her is something I want and need to read. This book already came out this past March in Australia, and I've been patiently waiting for the US release. :3
Divergent by Veronica Roth

I have to say that I'm extremely intrigued with this book. All I know about it is what I've read from the summary and some comments I've seen that mention it's Hunger Games-ish. And you know I love The Hunger Games. I heard it's also going to be a series. Seriously cannot wait to read this one! >:)
Where She Went by Gayle Forman

Where She Went is the sequel to If I Stay, but this time it's in Adam's point of view. If I Stay was one of my favorite books last year, and I loved Mia and Adam. When I found out there was going to be a sequel, it made me very happy. Can't wait! Oh, and isn't the cover just pretty? :)
Desires of the Dead by Kimberly Derting

This is the sequel to The Body Finder. I loved The Body Finder; it's one of my favorite paranormal YA books. I thought Violet and Jay were great characters, and I loved their relationship. Really excited to read more about them in this sequel! :D
Cryer's Cross by Lisa McMann

I loved Lisa McMann's WAKE trilogy. She has a total of three books she plans on releasing in the next two years, and Cryer's Cross is definitely the one I'm most interested in reading. Especially after Lisa said that if you loved Cabel from WAKE (which I did), then you'll love the guy in this book. ;)


  1. Your list looks great. I've got McMann's books in my TBR pile as we speak!

  2. I agree, looove the cover for Where She Went (though, at first I was kind of hoping for an Adam cover), but this one's perfect. And Desires of the Dead would of been my #6.
    Oh, and I can't wait for Cryer's Cross either.
    Great picks! :)

  3. Great picks!

    I'm excited for Divergent as well. Isn't the cover just gorgeous? I haven't read If I Stay or The Body Finder (though it's up next) yet!
