Open Road Summer by Emery Lord: This sounds like an amazing contemporary and it was blurbed by Elizabeth Eulberg, which makes me even more excited!
Side Effects May Vary by Julie Murphy: Side Effects May Vary sounds like a heartwarming read and I'm so curious to see what will happen to all the people close to the main character.
Something Real by Heather Demetrios: This book wasn't initially on my radar, but I heard a few awesome things about it and the cover is so colorful and eye-catching.
Landry Park by Bethany Hagen: "Downtown Abbey meets The Selection" alone makes me intrigued by this book. The premise itself is amazing and I'm curious to find out more about David ;)
Alienated by Melissa Landers: Ever since I read Obsidian by Jennifer L. Armentrout, (this is a fantastic series, you should all go read it NOW) I've been dying for another alien book and this one just sounds amazing! I love the idea of a foreign exchange program for aliens and it already has some pretty good reviews on Goodreads. Can't wait until it is released!
Half Bad by Sally Green: I'm not usually a fan of books told in the male point-of-view, but there are a couple of factors that make this book irresistible. First of all, the cover. I mean, look at it. Secondly, I'm all for witches and I'm very interested in the fact that the main character is a witch instead of a wizard considering that he is a man. Finally, you just have to say the words Markus Zusak and Patrick Ness and I'm there.
Prisoner of Night and Fog by Anne Blackman: I've been into historical fiction a lot lately and this book has really been calling my name. A Holocaust story told from the Socialist Party's point of view? INTERESTING! I have this one on my Nook so I'll be diving in sometime soon!
The Falconer by Elizabeth May: I can't even remember how long I've been waiting for this book! It's been on my radar for awhile now, but I failed to realize that it was actually a UK book so I thought I would get to read it in September and surprise, it actually doesn't come out in the US till May! This book sounds killer to me (haha! Get it? Killer? The main character kills faeries? No? ok.) and even though I have to wait much longer than I thought I would, this book is worth the anticipation.
And last, but certainly not least, we have….
Sekret by Lindsay Smith: I can't even describe to you how pumped I am for this book. Another historical fiction but with a twist! Super powers + KGB + Russia = win. (Yes. I know. I'm awesome at math) This one has already received some gushing reviews from some of my trusted blogger friends and I really just cannot wait to get my hands on a copy for myself! WHY IS APRIL SO FAR AWAY?????
And there you have it: 5 books that have me wishing time would move just a little quicker!
Which debuts of 2014 are you excited for?
