Other Books Coming Out This Week:

It's been A WHILE since there's been a quality list like this coming out.  I know I can't wait to read The Impossible Knife of Memory, No One Else Can Have You, The Killing Woods, and I would like to read both of the Splintered books one of these days too!

What are you going to start this year off with??

  1. I'm so excited for so many of these books! I loved Unhinged & I especially can't wait to read Enders, Being Sloane Jacobs, In Dreams & Erased. The cover of The Impossible Knife of Memory reminds me of The Sea of Tranquility :-)
