TBR ASAP (or OMG, I Have to Have These Books!)

Tip of the Day: You can now get The Espressologist in paperback!

If you saw me when my book orders came in at the library, you wouldn't believe that any books were NOT on my OMG I WANT TO READ THIS NOW list. Ditto if you saw me in the book store. But if I listed them all, this post would be neverending.

SOOOOO...here are the books I can't wait for this year that are on the top of my head right now:

1. BETWEEN SHADES OF GREY by Ruta Sepetys
OK, so I actually already read this as an ARC, but I want it to hit the shelves so I can tell everyone to buy it and read it! *Historical, WWII, Siberian exile survival story, March 2011.


2. MY LIFE, THE THEATER, AND OTHER TRAGEDIES by Allen Zadoff
His book FOOD, GIRLS, AND OTHER THINGS I CAN'T HAVE is hilarious, and I look foward to laughing at this book too. *Realistic, humor, May 2011.



4. I'M NOT HER by Janet Gurtler
A YA response to MY SISTER'S KEEPER. *Realistic, drama, April 2011

5. THE DARK AND HOLLOW PLACES by Carrie Ryan
The third in this creepy series! I call them the book versions of the movie "The Village" except good. *Zombies, March 2011.

OK, I'll stop here. Which of these four do you most want to read this year?

I keep meaning to read the Carrie Ryan series. It just never seems to make it to the top of my pile. Maybe this year!

Tina, great minds think alike. :)

Kate, I think you will like the zombie books!
