The five 2011 books I'd pimp myself to get.

My fave five list today is 2011 releases I’d pimp myself for. I am totally thrilled that the Elevensies took me in when they found me wandering the publishing desert alone and hungry. Because I’m part of this community of incredible writers, I’m very acquainted with many of the truly fabulous books that are on the horizon in 2011. Many of them, I’ve been dying to get my hand on for some time, and where I was able to finagle ARCs or manuscript exchanges, I did, so I’ve read some of them already. Here’s the list of 2011 (and 2012) releases I’ve already read and loved:

Wolfsbane (2011) and Bloodrose (2012) by Andrea Cremer
Angelfire (2011) and the sequel, Wings of the Wicked (2012) by Courtney Allison Moulton
A Touch Mortal (2011) by Leah Clifford

The Near Witch (2011) by Victoria Schwab
False Memory (2012) by Dan Krokos
And a super sekrit 2011 release by an author whose 2010 release was on my list yesterday (under pain of death, that’s all I can say) ;p

But…there are a ton of 2011 releases I have been unable to get my grubby little hands on. So my fave five list today is 2011 releases I’d totally pimp myself for. Here they are in no particular order:

Across the Universe by Beth Revis
Possession by Elana Johnson

Wildefire by Karsten Knight (Original Sin and Wildefire covers have been featured together on several blogs, so we’ve decided they’re a tabloid couple now)
Liar Society by Lisa and Laura Roecker
The Faery Ring by Kiki Hamilton

I had Bitterblue by Kristin Cashore on there, but I heard rumors that it’s being pushed back =(

Which 2011 releases are on your must have list?


  1. I won a copy of ACROSS THE UNIVERSE! I cannot wait to start!

  2. And I want Wolfsbane so very very badly!

  3. Totally looking forward to Beth's book, and Elana's and Leah's, too!

  4. I've already pre-ordered Bad Taste in Boys by Carrie Harris...can't wait!

  5. I would totally pimp myself for a copy of Elana's Possession! (I got lucky enough to win an ARC of Across the Universe or that would be there, too) I am also dying to read Wolfsbane, Bad Taste in Boys, XVI, and Original Sin!!

  6. Hmm well we would all agree I am waayyy to old to be pimped out..BOL!! but if I was young and smexilicious I would pimp myself out for......
    Wither, Wolfsbane, Original Sin ( of course!!!), The Iron Witch and City of Fallen Angels ( I think I would pimp myself out at my age now for COFA desperate measures call for...)


  7. Bitterblue being pushed back!? This is the first I've heard of it (NOOOO!!!!!)
    I can't wait for Original Sin!

  8. Great suggestions! It was so hard keeping this to five. Bad Taste in Boys and XVI would definitely have been the next 2 on my list. Also Unearthly. So many great books, so little time!

    Lissa--it's just a rumor. :\

  9. I'll make sure to check all of them, including Original Sin!
    You just broke my heart, I've been waiting for Bitterblue forever!!! Noooo! Have you read Bitterblue? Was it awesome?!?!

  10. Oh, just read it's just a rumor! I hope its not true!!!

  11. Well, I'm pretty sure that one of your wishes will be fulfilled VERY soon. We've finally got ARCs baby and one should be on its way to you very, very soon. Thanks for the shout out!

  12. I want to hug this post.

  13. Aawe thanks for including Angelfire!! I would pimp myself for YOU!! XD

  14. I'd pimp myself for City of Fallen Angels by Cassandra Clare, Falling Under by Gwen Hayes, Angelfire and A Touch Mortal!

  15. I really love Angelfire. It has been one of the best I have read over the last month.

  16. TOTALLY agree with this list! Plus Wither by Lauren DeStefano! DYING for that one. DYING.
