  1. Gayle Forman, Gayle Forman, Gayle Forman!!! *Runs around the room* I had to stop myself from going all grabby hands to the computer screen. I am a huge fan of her If I Stay books and I can’t wait for Just One Day, I’m certain the waterworks will commence from page one!

  2. Gayle Forman! I’m definitely planning on reading Just One Day. I also want to read Falling For You and Then You Were Gone. There are so many contemporaries out this month! I love it!

  3. A couple of to-die-for sequels I’m looking forward to in Jan–Prodigy by Marie Lu on Jan. 29 and Through the Ever Night by Veronica Rossi on Jan. 8.

    Splintered, an Alice in Wonderland spin-off by by A.G. Howard, was a 5-star read for me–it came out on Jan. 1.

  4. Nobody But Us! I definitely plan on reading that. I’ve wanted to read it for SO LONG now, and somehow managed to get lucky enough to get on the blog tour, so yay!

    I got Hooked from Netgalley and am excited about that one, too. And Gayle Forman is going to be in Austin this month, so I’m doing everything in my power to get my booty there. I love her writing and want to read Just One day sooooo bad!!

    There are others on the list that look really good–Falling For You and Uses For Boys to name a couple, but I don’t actually HAVE those books yet or plan on getting them this month. 🙂

    Thanks for the list! I hadn’t even thought of including my netgalley book. Which was so not intelligent, but still.

    Exposure was a wonderful retelling! I love this series of Shakespeare retellings, and the voice is authentically teen and dramatic!

    Have you read any of them?
