Happy New Year - and New Books!

Happy New Year, readergirlz!

Do you have your eye on any books coming out in 2012? Share the titles in the comments section at the end of this post.

Here are some forthcoming books I can't wait to read...and a few I had the good fortune to read early!

Don't Breathe a Word by Holly Cupala (January release - available NOW!)
The Disenchantments by Nina LaCour (coming in February)
Uglies: Shay's Story written by Scott Westerfeld and Devin Grayson, illustrations by Steven Cummings (February)
Bone: Quest for the Spark #2 by Tom Sniegoski and Jeff Smith (February)
The Secret Journeys of Jack London, Book Two: The Sea Wolves by Christopher Golden and Tim Lebbon (February)
Joe Golem and the Copper Girl by Christopher Golden and Mike Mignola (February) and Joe Golem and the Drowning City by Christopher Golden and Mike Mignola (March)
Out of Sight, Out of Time - Gallagher Girls #5 by Ally Carter (March)

That gets us through winter and early spring. There are plenty more where that came from, but I'll stop there so you can tell me what will soon be on YOUR bookshelves!

Also of note: This is our 2,000th post here at the readergirlz blog!
