STACKgirl January Book Buzz
Publishers know that in January we need to beat back the post-holiday blues with some awesome books. Well, at least I do. Plus all those who got a Kindle from Santa want to download some new and exciting books to read! There are a lot of great titles coming out this month, and we had a hard time whittling it down to just ten. Since our last list was eleven in honor of it being 2011, here’s our top eleven picks for this month!
Zoe and friends come back for another round with Neferet and Kalona. I don’t know how Zoe will manage without Heath – I was majorly bummed out when he died in the last book - so you know I will be picking this one up bright and early January 4th!
This sequel to Glimmerglass finds faeriewalker Dana Hathaway hiding in Avalon (the one place on Earth where humans and fae live together) and trying to stay alive. Wouldn’t it be cool to be the only person able to travel between faerie and Earth? Unless the Faerie Queen wants you dead … uh, not so cool.
Ooooh, this cover is gorgeous! The text reminds me of the Beautiful Creatures cover … but I digress. This story about a girl who learns she is part angel sounds very interesting and dang it I’d buy it for the cover alone.
The title comes from the tattoo the government orders girls to receive on their 16th birthday – a tattoo that signifies that she is ready for sex. She learns a shocking truth about her past after the brutal death of her mother. Whew – that gave me chills just typing it. This is one I won’t miss.
I read the first chapter online and wanted more! A young girl and her parents are cryogenically frozen and expect to awaken 300 years later on a new planet … but she awakens 50 years too soon to find that it was no accident – someone tried to kill her.
This romance sounded really good. A tragedy forces a modern day girl to move in with her estranged grandparents, finds a diary and goes back and forth in time to the early 1900′s, where she falls in love with a boy … you had me at time travel.
A girl finds a dusty, frightening unicorn tapestry and begins to have strange dreams. When she pulls a thread and unlocks a centuries old secret, she has to correct the wrongs of the past. Did you say unicorns?! Yep, gotta read this one.
OMG!!! I have been waiting for this one for a long time! The finale to this series and the answer to the questions: who (or what) is Barrons? Will MacKenzie save the world or destroy it? And most importantly: will there be a happily-ever-after for Mac and Barrons (please oh please say yes!)?
If you read Eternal and Tantalize, you will be pleased to learn that this book combines the two different casts in one deliciously dark story. I have enjoyed Smith’s previous books, and I’m looking forward to finding out how she meshes the two together.
In this sequel to The Iron King and The Iron Daughter, Meghan Chase is back from faerie and has her fay Prince Ash by her side, looking forward to school, college and life with her love. But something happens to change that or else it would be a boring story, wouldn’t it?
Ruby dreams of escaping the Congregation and enslavement to Darwin West. She wants her freedom and love, but what is she willing to sacrifice? See Stacy’s review here.
