The synopsis on GoodReads says something like, "Three kids — Zachary, Poppy and Alice — go on a journey, despite their own uncertain friendship, to bury a doll that may or may not be made from human bones."
Proxy by Alex London
About a person who is hired to take all the punishments for his rich-brat-employer. How cool is that CONCEPT. So many possibilities for dastardliness and ethical quandaries.
Strands of Bronze and Gold by Jane Nickerson
It's a re-telling of the Bluebeard fairytale set in the pre-Civil War South. That's all I needed to know.
Arclight by Josin L. McQuein
I saw a cover mock-up for this at Greenwillow's office and it is so shiiiiiny. Aside from that, it's about creepy creatures called the Fade, and is set in a world where there's almost no light, and the author is cool (Hi, Josin!), so I'm buying it as soon as it comes out.
Siege and Storm by Leigh Bardugo
This is the sequel to last year's Shadow and Bone. I liked that one! It had a cool pseudo-Tsarist world with an interesting magic system, a bit of steampunk-ish-ness, and the general pleasant feel of an old-fashioned adventure. I want to see where it goes in Numbah 2.
The School for Good and Evil by Soman Chainani
THE COVER. O_O I don't really know much else about this one, I admit, but it looks intriguing and snazzy.
The End Games by T. Michael Martin
About two brothers in a zombie-apocalypsified West Virginia. It sounds creepy. And original. And the fact that it's about siblings. . . Sibling books are way less common than boyfriend/girlfriend books, and I find them much more interesting, so this should be good.
Don't those look great? :D I'm sure a ton more are going to pop up, and I'm going to remember all the ones I'm forgetting, but for now I think it's a good list. Also, if you have any 2013 recs or books you're excited about you could tell me and that would be cool of you.
