message 9: by Jordan (new)

Jordan Fernandez Lots of going-to-be great books on this list, but Blackout by Mira Grant should be much higher. The Newsflesh series is amazing.


message 10: by hayden (new)

hayden Sorry, but last time I checked, The Soul was not a YA novel.

message 14: by Kassie (new)

Kassie Does anyone even know if there really is gonna be The Soul and The Seeker? I haven't been able to find any recent info that she's still writing them. I know originally she thought she might and she already had the idea of where they would go. But is she REALLY writing them? I hope she is, I LOVE The Host!

Mrs. Luettchau Masque of the Red Death by Bethany Griffin was really good. I scored an advance copy of this book which is set to release in May 2012. I can't wait for this book's sequel to come out, which probably won't be until 2013.
