Anticipated Young Adult Books of 2012 (Part 1)

1. Bitterblue by Kristen Cashore (May 1) - This companion novel to Graceling and Fire follows Bitterblue.
My sister had fallen head over heel with this series ever since it came out years ago. I remember her ranting to me about it, and how she can't wait until 2012 for Bitterblue to come out, and now it is coming soon.

2. Clockwork Princess by Cassandra Clare (December) - As she and the shadowhunters try to stop the clockwork army, Tessa must also deal with her feelings for Will and Jem.
How can I not put this on the list, I loved all the books by Cassandra. Now I think I might have to convince my sister to read the series, I mean Victorian London and demons, I hear my sister's name calling. 

3. Heroes of Olympus 3 possibly called The Mark of Athena (September) - Percy Jackson might finally reunite with Annabeth as the heroes from both camps join up for an important quest.

Ok, really, I don't have to say anything, this is going to be the bomb. (Though I haven't read the first two books but it is Rick Riodan, enuff said.)

4. Book Three of the Kane Chronicles (May).
He's b-a-a-ack! Despite their best efforts, Carter and Sade Kane can't seem to keep Apophis, the chaos snake, down. Now Apophis is threatening to plunge the world into eternal darkness, and the Kanes are faced with the impossible task of having to destroy him once and for all. Unfortunately, the magicians of the House of Life are on the brink of civil war, the gods are divided, and the young initiates of Brooklyn House stand almost alone against the forces of chaos. The Kanes' only hope is an ancient spell that might turn the serpent's own shadow into a weapon, but the magic has been lost for a millennia. To find the answer they need, the Kanes must rely on the murderous ghost of a powerful magician who might be able to lead them to the serpent's shadow . . . or might lead them to their deaths in the depths of the underworld. Nothing less than the mortal world is at stake when the Kane family fulfills its destiny in this thrilling conclusion to the Kane Chronicles.
I read the first book and it was Rick Riodan good. I remember how following the year I read the book, I had a ancient history class and we mentioned a lot of the myth and history in the book. Too bad my teacher didn't know Rick Riodan at all, her lost.

5. Out of Sight, Out of Time by Ally Carter (March 3) - Cammie left the Gallagher Academy to protect her friends and family. She awakens in convent with no memory of how she spent the summer.
I always enjoyed Ally Carter's books. I only have to see the word, SPIES, and yup I'm all yours. I don't think there is a better word you can use to control me, maybe other than food.

More to come. :) Happy Reading~
