Top Ten Most Anticipated Books for 2011!

I did the Top Ten Tuesday over at The Broke and the Bookish this week but I figured I’d post it here as well!

1. Where She Went by Gayle Forman (YA) — This isn’t released until April. The first book–If I Stay— was incredible and I don’t know how these crazy publishers expect me to wait until then! TORTURE! You can read my review for If I Stay on my personal blog. If you haven’t read If I Stay yet, make sure you read it right before April so you don’t have to wait!

2. Lover’s Dictionary by David Levithan (Not sure if this is YA or Adult. I’ve heard it’s adult but he typically writes YA) — This one is released in January so I won’t have to wait too long! I love David Levithan so I can’t wait to see this one. A love story told through dictionary entries–sounds interesting!

3. Wither by Lauren DeStefano (YA) — I’m pretty much the only one in the world that didn’t get this one so I’ll just have to wait until March to get my hands on this one. The cover is gorgeous and I’m really loving dystopian books lately..I can’t WAIT!

4. Bumped by Megan McCafferty (YA)– This one comes out at the end of April! Clearly I have a thing for messed up societies. This one is very interesting–nobody over the age of 18 is able to have babies making teens very important people. Apparently this is pretty different from her Jessica Darling series which I’m planning on reading very soon!

5. 13, rue Thérèse: A Novel by Elena Mauli Shapiro (Adult) — Go read the Amazon description for this one. It sounds like a movie I’ve seen before but I can’t figure it out. I love the cover for this one and it really sounds like it could be quite beautiful.

6. Timeless by Alexandra Monir (YA) — This one sounds really interesting! Some time-travel, some romance. I’m really looking forward to this one. I believe it comes out in January!

7. Delirium by Lauren Oliver (YA) — FINALLY! My little hands have been itching for this one. After I got denied for this on NetGalley, I just gave up and tried to put it out of my mind. CAN’T WAIT. More dystopian fun..are we seeing a pattern yet?

8. The Peach Keeper: A Novel by Sarah Addison Allen (Adult) — The cover of this one makes me antsy for summer. I love peaches! Family feuds + secretive man…I’m there! Supposed to be published in March, I believe!

9. Recovery Road by Blake Nelson (YA) — For some reason I tend to be drawn to books about addiction and recovery. It’s weird because I’ve never had to deal with any of those things, but either way, this one sounds intriguing. March 2011.

10. Lord in the House of Myself by Stacy Pershall (Memoir)– This one sounds so quirky and I’m the queen of quirky memoirs. I just love them! Luckily I’m getting a copy of this one from W.W. Norton so I’m stoked!

Also, I’ve heard that  Haruki Murakami is coming out with a new one? Is this true? Oh, and a new Saramago is coming out!

What books are you most anticipating in 2011?

About Jamie

Jamie is a 32 year old married lady (with a new baby!!) who is in denial that she's actually that old to be a married lady and a mom. When she's not reading you can find her doing Pilates followed by eating ice cream, belting out Hamilton (loud and offkey) and having adventures with her husband, daughter and rescue dog.


  1. Definitely excited about all the new dystopians coming out!

  2. Love all the dystopian books on the list! I'm SO stoked for Bumped 😀

  3. Ginger @ GReads! says:

    Nice choices! I need to make a list too.

  4. I want all of these books RIGHT NOW. I'm serious – I don't know how I'm going to wait for Bumped, Between Shades of Gray, Lover's Dictionary…it's going to kill me! Great choices 🙂

  5. Christina/Book Addict says:

    #1, 3, and 6 are definitely books that I am DYING to read. We discussed my obsession with number 3 at the book signing. 🙂 I read Delirium already (through an ARC tour) and loved it! I hope you get to read it soon. And regarding Bumped- I just started the first book in the Jessica Darling series. I LOVE IT. You must get your hands on a copy- it's hysterical!

  6. Wither and Delirium are also on my top 2011 must haves!

  7. Jenni Elyse says:

    I've never heard of some of these books. They sound like fun. I'm mostly looking forward to sequels of some of the series I'm into right now.

  8. You know how I feel about Megan Mc. LOVE. This is a good reminder that I have to read If I Stay STAT.

  9. Straylights says:

    I know what you mean about DYING to read Where She Went. It's absolute torture waiting!

  10. JessiKay89 says:

    I've seen some contests for Wither floating around the blogosphere (I know There's a Book is having one, and I think All About N might be having one, too), so don't give up hope yet! If all else fails, once I read it, if I end up not really liking it, I can send it your way 🙂

  11. Chrizette @ All the days of says:

    I haven't heard of some of your picks, so I am off to Goodreads to check them out.

  12. 13 rue Thérèse looks amazing! I added it to my Amazon wish list. That book seriously has my name all over it.

  13. Vampire Romance Books says:

    "13, rue Thérèse" looks really interesting. I had not heard of this and am so glad that you mentioned it. Can't wait to read it. Love how it has two parallel stories, the past and the present. There are a lot of other good books on your list too! Thanks for sharing!

  14. So many fantastic reads on this list! I loved Wither and Delirium and am anticipating Bumpped as well! Enjoy all your reads in 2011.
