Bookanistas Book Buzz!

Winner of Mockingjay is...

Paula Kay Mac!!!

Go ahead and email your address to sjohannes@bilaninc.com Congrads! I will do a huge run on Monday of all the books I need to mail out to date.

So I've gotten some ARCs lately. We've heard all about Matched (coming in Nov 10) and Paranormalcy (coming next week). But, WOW! there are some other awesome books coming out before next summer.

SPECIAL SHOUT-OUT! Let me talk about Across The Universe for a second by my blogger buddy Beth Revis. PW sent out a special edition this morning with her first chapter. Holy crap - you all have to read it. This is definitely in my top 3 for next year! Im so proud of her and its been so great watching her along the way. I started reading her blog a couple years ago. I predict a bestseller and a huge new trend in SciFi. You heard it here first :)

Today I wanted to give a Bookanistas Buzz shout-out to the books we are all excited about - some are obvious but some you may not have heard of yet (I marked the ones in red I'm most excited about :)

Renae said...

I am so excited about all of these! Thanks for organizing this nice little list!

Tricia J. O'Brien said...

Great list, Shelli. I just read Beth's opening chapter, and I sit here stunned. I don't know when I've read an opening that riveting.

Natalie Aguirre said...

Great list. I'll have to read Beth's first chapter later, but it sounds fantastic. Wow, next year is going to be a great year for new books.

Shannon Messenger said...

Couldn't agree with you more on the books I'm excited about. Though as a MG writer, I'm also desperate to read the new Rick Riordan Olympians series. That guys got the golden touch. Can't wait to see what he does next (even though I'm sure it will make me want to throw rocks at my own drafts) :)

lisa and laura said...

Aw, Shelli this made our day. Thanks for the shout out!

Can't wait to read the other books on your list!

Jemi Fraser said...

Aw, man, I read Beth's first chapter online this morning, and now I have to wait 138 days until it's released!

I can't wait!!!
