1. Bright's Passage by Josh Ritter. Crazy Camper might be his number one fan (he is a musician) and Sweet Tea and I have been with her to a concert. Check out his music! And this book got lots of buzz (Stephan King really liked it, no big deal for a first book or anything).
2. Wilfair by Alysia Gray Painter. Forever Young Adult's review sold me. Plus, it has the best blurb ever:
"A late-blooming nineteen-year-old runs a posh hotel next door to a shy guy and the little motel he oversees. Strange things happen, adventures are had, feelings are felt, and cheese dip is eaten." Feelings! Cheese! Yes!
3.Graceling by Kristin Cashore. How have I not read this yet!?4. The Hangman's Daughter by Oliver Pötzsch. A historical-thriller by a descendent of the Kuisls, a famous Bavarian executioner clan? heck ya.
5. Will Grayson, Will Grayson, by John Green and David Levithan. I am approaching fangirl territory with Green, and I don't mind a bit.
6. Shadows on the Moon by Zoë Marriott. Anna's review at Anna Reads sold me. Multiple identities and revenge and magic and epicness. Sounds right up my alley.
7. The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own Making by Catherynne M. Valente. It won awards. It looks charming. NPR liked it. I trust NPR book reviews.
