2011- Year of Awesome

There's a lot of things I'm looking forward to in 2011

There's a bunch of books I want to read-- lots of sequels.

1) The Queen of the Dead

Look at that cover-- Look at how annoyed Will looks. 

It's coming out on June 7th.  Here's the description.---- CONTAINS SPOILERS FOR GHOST AND THE GOTH.

After being sent back from the light, Alona Dare - former homecoming queen, current Queen of the Dead - finds herself doing something she never expected: working. Instead of spending days perfecting her tan by the pool (her typical summer routine when she was, you know, alive), Alona must now cater to the needs of other lost spirits. By her side for all of this - ugh - “helping of others” is Will Killian: social outcast, seer of the dead, and someone Alona cares about more than she’d like.

Before Alona can make a final ruling on Will’s “friend” or “more” status, though, she discovers trouble at home. Her mom is tossing out Alona’s most valuable possessions, and her dad is expecting a new daughter with his wicked wife. Is it possible her family is already moving on? Hello! She’s only been dead for two months! Thankfully, Alona knows just the guy who can put a stop to this mess.

Unfortunately for Alona, Will has other stuff on his mind, and Mina, a young (and beautiful) seer, is at the top of the list. She’s the first ghost-talker Will’s ever met—aside from his father—and she may hold answers to Will’s troubled past. But can she be trusted? Alona immediately puts a check mark in the “clearly not” column. But Will is - ahem - willing to find out, even if it means leaving a hurt and angry Alona to her own devices, which is never a good idea.

Packed with romance, lovable characters, and a killer cliffhanger, Queen of the Dead is the out-of-this-world sequel to The Ghost and the Goth.

Seriously how can you not LOVE this? It's fluff wrapped in more fluff being hugged by a baby kitten.  YES!

2) Plague  By Michael Grant
It's the fourth book in the Gone series.  I'm still behind in the series but I plan on reading Hunger and Lies... but if it's anything teh first book, it will be brain exploding awesome.

3) The Power of Six-  the sequel of I am Number Four.
I finished I am Number Four two days ago and instantly ran out to amazon to find out of there is a sequel coming out... yep there is.  Awesomeness--- There's no cover art released yet and it's coming out August 23.

4) Delirium--  
Holly reviewed this on her blog a few weeks ago and I'm still cleaning off the brain explosion from my computer. I"m sure there's lots of Buzz about this book already but still I can't wait to read it.

But the thing I'm MOST EXCITED FOR IS WEEKEND OF AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  
You can tell I'm excited by all the exclamation marks.

2011 LOOK OUT.  
It's going to be made out of awesome... instead of dates and times and numbers and stuff.
