So, I took a gander at BEA Buzz Books over at NetGalley and boy-howdy I'm excited! I know some other bloggers have started talking about this and I wanted to put in my two cents. So, in list form (because that seems to be my modus operandi these days) here are the books that I'm most excited about:
Origin by Jessica Khoury (9/4/2012) - Blurb: Origin is a
beautifully told, shocking new way to look at an age-old desire: to live
forever, no matter the cost. This is a supremely compelling debut novel
that blends the awakening romance of Matched with the mystery and jungle conspiracy of "Lost."
The Casual Vacancy by J.K. Rowling (9/27/2012) - this one's kind of a no-brainer! So curious to see how Rowling does with a departure from Harry.
Back to Blood by Tom Wolfe (10/23/2012) - his first novel in eight years!!
Flight Behavior by Barbara Kingsolver - it's Kingsolver, that's reason enough.
The Last Dragonslayer by Jasper Fforde - Anyone who's ever read the Thursday Next series should be excited for Ffordes first foray (how's that for alliteration?) into YA.
The Diviners by Libba Bray (9/18/2012) - YA novel involving 1920s NY, the occult, and a bunch of murders...also, it's Libba Bray.
