The reviewers at Fiction Vixen will be posting their most anticipated reads for 2012 this week.
Jen’s Most Anticipated Books coming in 2012
We were asked to list the books we were most looking forward to in 2012. After going through my list, I realize that I might have a PNR problem. In a year without Mercy or Kate, both of whom would automatically be on my list, I still have 4/5 books as PNR. I guess I can say that my runners up are not PNR? Oh well, here we go!
Lover Reborn by J.R. Ward (3/27/12)- I was not a big of the last installment of BDB. I thought Lover Unleashed was a giant cop out by Ward. You can see my review here. That will not stop me from instantly downloading Tohr’s book. I cannot remember the last time I looked forward to a book in this series so much. This book will either be a train wreck or one fabulous pile of awesome. I am hoping for the fabulous pile of awesome, obviously. No’One would not have been my choice for Tohr and I can’t really say why. Maybe it is because I am still stuck on Wellsie. It is going to take some serious writing to get me over Wellsie.
Lothaire by Kresley Cole (1/10/12)- Every book in this series is somehow better than the last one. We know nothing about Lothaire’s heroine but really that doesn’t matter. I know enough about Lothaire to know this book is going to be fabulous.
Fifty Shades Freed- E.L. James (1/19/12)- The first two Fifty Shades books took us all by surprise. I cannot wait to read more about Fifty and Ana and to get the final installment of their story. I know it will be emotional and intense but I wouldn’t hope for anything less.
Iced by Karen Marie Moning (10/30/12) Um, HELLO!! I cannot wait to get back into the Fever world. While I will be consoling myself that this whole book won’t be about Barrons at least Ryodan will be in it. I am not sure how I feel about Dani yet. I didn’t end Shadowfever in a good place with her. And I certainly do not think she is worthy of Christian or Ryodan. And what about the Dancer character? How will he play in? Ah, I do not know if I am ready to be taken on another roller coaster ride by KMM.
Once Burned by Jeaniene Frost (6/26/12)- Cat and Bones have long been my favorite PNR couple. The secondary characters in those books are nothing short of awesome. I will admit I have not been a big fan of the Night Huntress books. They just don’t have the spark that Cat and Bones do. I am hoping that will change with Vlad. Vlad has played a big part in the Cat and Bones world and it will be interesting to see him step out on his own. And we will be getting more than one book from him. That alone makes it a little intriguing.
About that Night by Julie James (4/3/12)- I pretty much adore anything she writes. I don’t expect this book to be any different.
Rainshadow Road, Griffin Bay and Dream Lake by Lisa Kleypas (all due out in 2012)- See my statement above from Julie James. Lisa Kleypas is my favorite HR author and her contemporaries are just as good.
