Ten Summer Books I Can't Wait For

These are my top ten can't wait for books of Summer 2011, in no particular order.

  1. Luminous by Dawn Metcalf: This one just looks really awesome, and the fabulous cover can't hurt.
  2. Original Sin by Lisa Desrochers: This is the second book in a series, and I loved the first one, so I can't wait to read this.
  3. Forever by Maggie Stiefvater: The conclusion to the Wolves of Mercy Falls series. Enough said.
  4. Undercurrent by Tricia Rayburn: This is another second book, and I thought that the first, Siren, was hugely original and amazingly well-written.
  5. Wildefire by Karsten Knight: The premise of this one is just so original and fun-sounding that I can't help but look forward to it.
  6. Wolfsbane by Andrea Cremer: Yet another second in a series graces my list of awesomeness. I can't wait to see what happens to Calla this time around!
  7. Bloodlines by Richelle Mead: Spin-off to Vampire Academy.
  8. Succubus Revealed by Richelle Mead: The final Succubus Blues book. I'm looking forward to this one, but I really don't want this series to end!
  9. Devil's Business by Caitlin Kittredge: I've loved the first three Black London books and I'm hoping that this one will be from Jack's POV like Book 2 was. Let's face it, Jack is made of awesome.
  10. Witch Eyes by Scott Tracey: Gay witches and R&J? Sign me up!

How do these compare to your lists? Are you looking forward to any of the same books?
