Books You're Looking Forward to in 2012

There are a lot of books coming out this year I'm looking forward to -- especially the one pictured above (isn't that cover smokin'?). I love Joey W. Hill and I'm certain this series will be as good as her other works. This got me to thinking: What books are YOU looking forward to this year?

I know most people want the newest J.R. Ward (I have the last book but need to read it) as well as some upcoming young adult novels, etc. Although I don't need to add to my bookshelves (I really, really don't) I'm asking for suggestions. So the floor is open -- what books should I read this year? I like all genres but prefer romance, urban fantasy, young adult, and horror.

Now it's time to return to work. Hope you all are enjoying the first day in the new year.

Happy New Year Jaime!!!!!! We already know how much I am counting down the days for your releases this year so I won't bother naming them. There are a few releases from Ilona Andrews that I am looking forward to namly the spin off book of her Kate series. Also Nalini Singh has a Guild Hunter release this year. J Frost has a spin off from her series, Once Burned. There areseveral more from Kat Nolan, PJ Schnyder, and countless others. Can't wait to read every single one!!!!!

OP!!!! Happy New Year! *hugs*

I actually just got the Kate Daniel's series (the first three) and intend to read them soon. I also got the Lori Foster Buckhorn Beginnings book and can't wait to dive in.

I have the first Nalini book in that series but haven't read it yet (she signed it for me at LF, yay!).

I'm glad you're looking forward to The Ripple Effect. It's almost done. But man it's hard to write. I hope it's all you hope for! :)

I'll second anything by Ilona Andrews, I'm madly in love with everything they write (writes? english is confusing after a night with hardly any sleep due to fussy baby)!
Other than that (your books are a given of course, you know this since I stalk you regularly) these are a few of the books on my wish list:

New additions to series I'm already hooked on:
A Sliver of Shadow by Allison Pang
Grave Memory by Kalayna Price
Fair Game by Patricia Briggs

These are all firsts in new series, and I hope to find new addictions among these:

Dire Needs by Stephanie Tyler
Deliver me from darkness by Tes Hilaire
Kiss of the Vampire by Cynthia Garner
King of Darkness by Elisabeth Staab
All that Bleeds by Kimberly Frost
Alpha Instinct by Katie Reus

It's going to be an expensive 2012! Good thing I good gift certificates from local Sf and Fantasy book store for Christmas :)

I read so many different authors it's hard to name which ones I want the most.
I'm waiting anxiously for the Ripple Effect though
Happy New Year
