Books that would make my year

Last night I was in a chat with Stephanie and Jen B about May releases and of course we got side tracked and I started talking about books that I would DIE if I can't read.  I know a bit dramatic but still I thought I would let you know these are the books that will make my year!  What are some of the books you are dying to read?

  1. We have such similar taste!! I am also dying for Forever, The Pledge, Lola & The Boy Next Door and The Scorpio Races. Dying I tell you! I should totally put together of my most wanteds, but it would probably be REALLY long! :)

  2. I'm going to be in Yosemite when Forever is released! I'm considering emptying out my retirement fund to pay someone to drop-ship to the book to our campsite :) (Lola and the Boy Next Door and The Scorpio Races are also on my WILL DIE IF I DON'T READ list!)

  3. I cannot wait for Blood Lines and Lost in Time (:

  4. I like the photo of your bookshelves. Is that all of it, or just the one that looks presentable? I have about 30' of bookcases and I'm shopping for more, all I need is more wall space. LOL

    You can see photos of them on my FB photo page.

  5. Two Readers Reviews: We will die without these I am almost sure!

    Lisa That sounds like an investment in your sanity. Do it have them helicopter that sucker in!

    Karm: Yay for Melissa de la Cruz!

    Nora That is one of my bookcases and it's double sized. I also have 3 smaller (fits about 100 books) temporary bookshelves until I can get another to match the one I have. What is the link to your bookshelf picture? I would love to see it!

  6. This is a great list! I cannot wait to get my hands on Forever, The Scorpio Races, Lola and the Boy Next Door and Uncommon Criminals. Clearly you have fabulous taste!

  7. Such a great list!! I am really looking forward to these as well. Yay for awesome books!!!

  8. I'm kind of a Stacey Kade Fangirl, so I'm DYING to read the third Ghost and the Goth book and her new book The Rules. Oh and of course Becca Fitzpatrick, SILENCE. Can't wait!

  9. I could definitely see myself dying if I didn't get to read a few of those books this year! I consider myself a Simone Elkeles fanatic and Chain Reaction is the only book I have left to read by her! As much as it pains me to say it, I have not read a single one of Maggie's books. I have both Shiver and Linger but keep putting off reading them! As for Lola and the Boy Next Door, I couldn't be more excited! If it is anywhere near as good as Anna and the French Kiss, I'll be sure to love it! Fantastic post my dear :) As for books that I am dying to read this coming up year... well that would be the lovely new bundle of books that is sitting on my desk right now :)

  10. Maggie's new one and The Pledge do look really good.

  11. I got THE SCORPIO RACES and UNCOMMON CRIMINALS at BEA. Holding them in my hot little hands right now. But they are going to have to wait until I read the 2k11 books. So many great reads...which reminds me--just finished POPULAR and I see what you meant about a tough book to review. Will have to go back and see what you said!! Talk about twisty.

  12. I like to read books before they come out in a movie. I try to pay attention to which books have sold their movie rights and then read them. I haven't read "The Help" yet and want to do so before the movie comes out later this summer.

  13. GURL. You know I'm going to be right there beside you fangirling over Uncommon Criminals!

  14. Oh, gosh, yes. I definitely agree with all of these (with the exception for me of the Blue Bloods novel because I'm not up-to-date with that series - I believe I've only read the first).
