Top Ten Tuesday: Most Anticipated Books in 2011.

 Top Ten Tuesday is brought to us by The Broke and the Bookish.

* Some of these are going to be released later this month, so they're not all technically 2011 releases. But I'm super excited for them anyway, so I thought to include them. As it is, I couldn't even make a list of 10.
1. Deadly Little Games – Laurie Stolarz – 12/28/10.
Camelia and Ben have discovered a powerful bond: They both possess the power of psychometry, the ability to sense things through touch. For Ben, the gift is a frightening liability. When he senses a strong threat or betrayal, he risks losing control and hurting people. Camelia's gift is more mysterious. When she works with clay, her hands sculpt messages her mind doesn't yet comprehend.
Before either teen has a chance to fully grasp these abilities, an unresolved family tragedy resurfaces in Camelia's life, irrevocably changing everything she cares about...
2. Darkest Mercy – Melissa Marr – 2/22/11.
The Summer King is missing; the Dark Court is bleeding; and a stranger walks the streets of Huntsdale, his presence signifying the deaths of powerful fey.
Aislinn tends to the Summer Court, searching for her absent king and yearning for Seth. Torn between his new queen and his old love, Keenan works from afar to strengthen his court against the coming war. Donia longs for fiery passion even as she coolly readies the Winter Court for battle. And Seth, sworn brother of the Dark King and heir to the High Queen, is about to make a mistake that could cost his life.
Love, despair, and betrayal ignite the Faery Courts, and in the final conflict, some will win . . . and some will lose everything.
3. Bumped – Megan McCafferty – 4/26/11.

4. What Happened to Goodbye – Sara Dessen – 5/10/11.

5. The Lover’s Dictionary – David Levithan – 1/4/11.

basis, n.
There has to be a moment at the beginning when you wonder whether you’re in love with the person or in love with the feeling of love itself.
If the moment doesn’t pass, that’s it—you’re done. And if the moment does pass, it never goes that far. It stands in the distance, ready for whenever you want it back. Sometimes it’s even there when you thought you were searching for something else, like an escape route, or your lover’s face.
How does one talk about love? Do we even have the right words to describe something that can be both utterly mundane and completely transcendent, pulling us out of our everyday lives and making us feel a part of something greater than ourselves?
6. Abandon – Meg Cabot – 4/26/11.
When Pierce first sees him, she thinks he is a murderer. She's right about one thing -- he does take lives. But not in the way she ever imagined. Pierce is drawn to the dark stranger even as she tries to uncover the mystery surrounding the tragic death of someone close to her. As she gets closer to the truth -- and the stranger -- unexpected secrets are revealed, even in her own heart.
7. The Last Little Blue Envelope – Maureen Johnson – 4/26/11.


  1. Yes yes and yes to all of the above. Wonderful list!

  2. Can't waittt for the new Sarah Dessen & Maureen Johnson.

  3. Great list! I am having a hard time thinking of ten as well!

  4. I'm really excited for the new book in the Touched series as well.

  5. I'm adding Lover's Dictionary to my wishlist right now.

    My post:

    I welcome recommendations.

  6. I love love love the sound of The Lover's Dictionary! It's been on my list a couple of weeks now :)

  7. ooh, the new Maureen Johnson is news to me. Must check with my sales rep to get an ARC. Thanks for the tip!

  8. These all sound so good. Though I always avoid books that deal primarily in relationships as a subject matter, Sarah Dessen has a way with words that always blows me away. I'm also looking forward to Abandon - though I haven't been too fond of where meg Cabot's recent books are going, she always is entertaining. Happy reading.

  9. I love reading everyone's lists.

    I was so excited when I saw the Maureen Johnson pop up -- I know you saw it on my list, but I have to say - I found it by accident and get excited about it!
