Must Have Books of 2011

Like Kristi and Valerie, I've set a reading plan/goal for 2011. My goal, is to read the books I already have before purchasing new ones. Except those must-have books that are coming out this year.

There are still a lot I must have from last year, like SLICE OF CHERRY! How I missed that release date is beyond me. But I plan on hitting up the bookstore on Friday night so that's covered. Yeah, outside of the plan BUT that book came out in 2010 and I had planned to buy it before I made the new year plan, so it's okay. Hush.

I honestly haven't paid much attention to a whole lot of the 2011 new releases, not because I don't want to, I've just been that busy. Some that I am aware of and must have are:


FOREVER by Maggie Stiefvater

*Secret Novel* by Maggie Stiefvater
*no cover image*

BLOOD MAGIC by Tessa Gratton

BAD TASTE IN BOYS by Carrie Harris (and you guys should be ready for that one too--we *might* have something special when it comes out.)

POSSESSION by Elana Johnson

THE NEAR WITCH by Victoria Schwab

HOURGLASS by Myra McEntire
*no cover image*

CORSETS AND CLOCKWORK by Various (includes a short by Dia Reeves)

And I'm just going to stop there because this list is really long.
What are some of your must-have books for 2011? Share so I can make said list even longer. Mwauahahahaha! (That's an evil laugh.)


  1. You just made my list longer too-lol. :)

  3. What a great list of books! Many of those are on my to buy list for 2011! There are a few I think I might add too...

  4. Lol, Kristi!

    Riv, Maggie is super awesome. It makes us love her books even more.
    Great list!

    Heather, thanks! 2011 is going to be another great year in YA!

  5. Oh! I keep forgetting about DELIRIUM by Lauren Oliver because I've already read it but it is definitely a MUST HAVE book! Comes out Feb 2011 I think.

  6. Hey,
    Congratulations–you won the Stylish Blogger award! Check out my blog for details.

  7. I have put some of them into my TBR. But the rest of them I just saw it today. I think I have to read the first book of The Dark and Hollow Places. My friend say it's a good reading

  8. The Dark and Hollow Places is the third book in that world, but all of them can be read individually.

    First is The Forest of Hands and Teeth, then The Dead Tossed Waves. They're set in the same world, but told by different characters. You could read them in any order, but there would be things you'd understand better if you read them in order.They are GREAT books.
