My 2009 Book Wishlist

Last year, I posted about the books that I was most looking forward to reading in 2008.  I read all of those and thoroughly enjoyed them, so I'm posting a new list for this year.  I'm sure I've left some books off, but here goes...

I've already read (and loved!) Don't Judge a Girl By Her Cover by Ally Carter and Nothing But Ghosts by Beth Kephart.  Sarah Dessen is one of my favorite authors and I can't wait to devour Along for the Ride.

My next three wishlist books are ones that I like to think of as my Cybils wishlist.  These are authors that I discovered this year when I was a panelist for the Cybils Fantasy and Science Fiction category .  I read either the first or second book in each series and am now hooked.

I've actually already read Shadow Kiss by Richelle Mead and am anxiously awaiting the release of Book 4 in the series, Blood Promise.  Wake was one of the finalists for the Cybils Fantasy and Science Fiction category and Fade promises to be just as exciting.  I was also totally into the interesting concept and plot of The Summoning by Kelley Armstrong and am very much looking forward to adding The Awakening to my bookshelf.

What's on your 2009 wishlist?


  1. Oh so many. This would be hard to think of...

    But I really want Fade and Along for the Ride as well.

    As for what else? Lipstick Apology and Geektastic (the anthology), etc.


  2. I'm down with FADE as well, but I also can't wait for CITY OF GLASS by Cassandra Claire. Love that series!

  3. Bah! I just did a general wish list on my personal blog. Now I'm thinking I may have to do a book wish list on the book blog too. Ah! I still have to read the SECOND Gallager (sp, sorry) Girls book!!!

  4. Hey, I tagged you at my blog!

  6. I'm looking forward to Fade, Envy, Lipstick Apology, and many many others.

  7. Oooo, I can't wait for "Along For the Ride" either! = )
