The Lust List (November)

November-2011-desktop-calendar-1024x572_large

November is ripe for Lusting! 

The Lust List is a monthly meme her on MPB where I highlight some books I've yet to get my hands on, but am excited to read.


Crossed by Ally Condie from Dutton Juvenile 

Why: Because I was one of the few people who truly loved Matched for it's gentleness.


Dark Inside by Jeyn Roberts from Simon & Shuster Children's

Why: A creepy-cool dystopian? Sign me up!


The Pledge by Kimberly Derting from Margaret K. McElderry

Why: A high fantasy setting, romance, and characters separated by language! As a communications-brained chickie, the idea is intriguing. 


Snow in Summer by Jane Yolen from Philomel

Why: Yolen takes classic fairytale princesses and turns them into struggling wartime victims. Have you ever read Briar Rose? It's incredible! 


The Future of Us by Jay Asher & Carolyn Mackler from Razorbill

Why: This is an easy answer. Jay Asher and Carolyn Mackler had a baby, and it sounds like all kinds of awesome!


Kiss of Frost by Jennifer Estep from Kensington

Why: It's the second book in the Mythos Academy series! 


Destined by Jessie Harrell from Mae Day Publishing

Why: Finally a Greek Myth that hasn't been reinterpreted to the ump-teenth degree!
