5 Most Wanted Books of 2011 + Contest Winners!

Cindy at Princess Bookie is in Contest Craze mode again, giving away all sorts of amazing prizes. For this specific challenge, all you have to do is list your top five most wanted books of 2011 an why. And since I never pass up an opportunity to gush over books, here is my list.

5. Plague (Gone #4) by Michael Grant.
I am one of the biggest Gone fangirls ever. I've read and loved each of the three books at least three times already. It's one of my favorite series ever, and I'm so so so desperate to get my hands on this one.

4. My Unfair Godmother (My Fair Godmother #2) by Janette Rallison.
Same reason as above. I read the first with one expecting it to be light, girly and fluffy and it definitely wasn't. It's an amazing book and I did a happy dance when I heard that it was getting a sequel!

3. Slice Of Cherry by Dia Reeves.
Bleeding Violet is still on my TBR list, so I can't say much for knowing that I'll like it, but this book sounds perfect for me. It sounds dark, but hopefully somewhat quirky (as the cover conveys) at the same time. So excited.

2. Steel by Carrie Vaughn.
Pirates! Need I say more? I haven't read Carrie's other YA novel, but I've heard incredible things. Plus, if the cover isn't a gorgeous enough incentive for you to want to read it, I don't know what is. Can't wait!

1. The Iron Queen (The Iron Fey #3) by Julie Kagawa.
I can't even express my love for this series in words. The first two books absolutely blew me away. Faerie books have always failed to hook and impress me, but these books gave me a new love for them! 2011 can't come fast enough. I need this book!
And now onto the contest winners! The winners were chosen by the Random Number Generator and will be contacted immediately after I post this. Winners have 48 hours to reply to the email before I pick a new winner!

  1. My sister is dying to read Plague, I'm almost surprised she hasn't thrown Gone and me and shouted, "Read!"

    Haven't heard of a couple though...need to go look up and I will...after school.

  2. STEEL! Can't wait for that one! Congrats to the winners! :)

  3. SLICE OF CHERRY & THE IRON QUEEN.. are two my top books for 2011 too!!! As well as City Of Fallen Angels by: Cassandra Clare!

    Great post :)

  4. SO JEALOUS, CINDY. *reaches through screen and steals Plague*

  5. I'm so excited for Iron Queen and Steel. I'm a huge fan of pirates and fencers (I am one, a fencer...not a pirate) so it sounds reallly goood ;)
