Books You're Looking Forward To In 2012

Recommended Posts

What books are you looking forward to seeing published in 2012?

 

I'm looking forward to some 2011 books being published in paperback.

 

Here are some I'm looking forward to (I'm including sequels from series that I own but haven't read, because I'm sure I'll love them when I eventually read them!):

 

Cassandra Clare City of Lost Souls (Mortal Instruments #5)

Cassandra Clare Clockwork Princess (Infernal Devices #3)

Eoin Colfer The Last Guardian (Artemis Fowl #8)

Justin Cronin The Twelve (Passage #2)

Jasper Fforde Dark Reading Matter (Thursday Next #7)

Jasper Fforde Return of Shandar (Last Dragonslayer #3)

Mark Haddon The Red House

Charlaine Harris Deadlocked (Sookie Stackhouse #12)

Melina Marchetta Quintana of Charyn (Finnikin #3)

Beth Revis A Million Suns (Across the Universe #2)

Veronica Roth Insurgent (Divergent #2)

Carlos Ruiz Zafon The Prisoner of Heaven (Shadow of the Wind #3)

Carlos Ruiz Zafon The Watcher in the Shadows

Markus Zusak Bridge of Clay

 

It looks like Diane Setterfield, who wrote The Thirteenth Tale, might also have another book coming out. :)

 

Ooh, I've just found another list that details more books that are being published. I'll go and pore over that now. :D

I found a Guardian article that's slightly related to this topic, although it also includes author anniversaries in 2012 and different book adaptations that will be shown on TV and in theatres.

In modern-day London, a conservator mourning the death of her secret lover tries to unravel the mystery of a 19th-century automaton: a clockwork puzzle made for a sick child. Life and death, love and human invention are explored as the two stories intertwine.

 

and

 

a new Kate Summerscale:

 

Mrs Robinson's Disgrace by Kate Summerscale (Bloomsbury). The follow-up to the prizewinning, bestselling The Suspicions of Mr Whicher centres on a celebrated Victorian divorce case.

I don't often look forward to books coming out - I'm too busy keeping up with what is already on my shelves! - but I have to admit that one that I will buy the day it emerges is the sequel to Wolf Hall. Bring Up The Bodies is due out in on 10th May. My half term reading is already sorted!
