BEA Books I'm Excited About!

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.


  1. These all do look good! I would really like to read The Last Dragonslayer.

  2. These all look great, thanks for sharing. :)

  3. These look so good! I especially want to read the Kingsolver book. I loved her last book!
