  2. Katelyn Jan 7 2013 at 12:05 pm #

    I can’t wait to get my hands on PRODIGY. LEGEND was amazing!

    • Vanessa Di Gregorio Jan 7 2013 at 12:12 pm #

      Right? I am missing Day and June SO HARD right now! PRODIGY can’t come quick enough!

  3. Peggy Eddleman Jan 7 2013 at 12:10 pm #

    Holy Frijoles! So much awesome on one page!

    I’ve read CADET OF TILDOR, and I’m in love with it. I’m excited that other people get to read it now!

    • Vanessa Di Gregorio Jan 7 2013 at 12:15 pm #

      I pretty much jump up and down whenever I put these posts together, because I WANT THEM ALL!

      I honestly CAN’T WAIT for CADET OF TILDOR! (It makes it even harder whenever I hear that people loved it! Thankfully, it’s just a few days away! *breathes*)

  4. Megan Duff Jan 7 2013 at 12:18 pm #

    I find it adorable that Asunder and Prodigy share the same release date 🙂

    I’ve great things about Just One Day and am very curious about Shades of Earth (how about those cover re-vamps??? BALLSY)

  5. Leigh Smith Jan 7 2013 at 12:20 pm #

    All of them! Dying for Prodigy! Also super excited for Just One Day, The Madman’s Daughter, Through the Ever Night, and The Archived.

  6. Krispy Jan 7 2013 at 12:26 pm #

    Love these posts so much, Vanessa! Totally helps me keep track of what’s coming out when. Excited for so many of these & all those sequels! 😀

    • Vanessa Di Gregorio Jan 10 2013 at 10:36 am #

      Awwwwwwwww YAY! I’m glad! These posts are pretty time consuming to put together, but I just love finding out about more books (but I guess, who doesn’t? :P). It makes me wonder how I ever kept track of when books were coming out before we started doing this…

  7. Avery Moore Jan 7 2013 at 12:33 pm #

    I’ve really been looking forward by SPLINTERED by A.G. Howard. And its cover is just so perfect!

    Other January releases I can’t wait to get my hands on are PRODIGY by Marie Lu, THE ARCHIVED by Victoria Schwab and PROPHECY by Ellen Oh. Although I have seen some here that I will definitely add as well.

    • Vanessa Di Gregorio Jan 10 2013 at 10:38 am #

      Yes yes yes! Let’s just go back to the SPLINTERED cover and just gush! Because it’s so lovely and yet somehow still a little creepy, and the colours are so vivid and the model’s expression and UGH! So. Good.

      And I’m glad you’ve found more books here to add to your list! (Though I do apologize to your wallet).

  8. ellie Moreton Jan 7 2013 at 12:34 pm #

    Prodigy and Through the Ever night are my Top ones right now! Can’t wait!!!

  9. ellie Moreton Jan 7 2013 at 12:35 pm #

    Prodigy and through the ever night are at the top of my list right now! So can’t wait!

  10. Gwen Cole Jan 7 2013 at 1:34 pm #

    There are SOOO many great books comign out this month. But I am most excited for something I’ve actually already read. Prodigy by Marie Lu. The sequel is just as great at the first book, and I can’t wait for everyone else to read it!! ^_^

    • Vanessa Di Gregorio Jan 10 2013 at 10:39 am #

      GAH, you’ve already read PRODIGY?! I AM SO JEALOUS I CAN’T EVEN! I am devouring that book as soon as I get my hands on it!

  11. Diana Jan 7 2013 at 2:14 pm #

    Also coming out on the 8th is THE FAIREST BEAUTY, by Melanie Dickerson, which I’m eagerly anticipating. I’m also clamoring for SHADES OF EARTH–I bought ACROSS THE UNIVERSE and the 2nd one for Christmas presents for myself, but promised I wouldn’t start reading until SoE was released…

    I wimped out. So now I’m impatient.

    • Vanessa Di Gregorio Jan 10 2013 at 10:42 am #

      OHEMGEE. The cover for THE FAIREST BEAUTY is stunning! I can’t believe I hadn’t heard of it! I’m such a sucker for fairytale retellings 🙂

      And it can be SO HARD sometimes to hold off! But just think – when you finally get SoE in your hands, you will be so unbelievably excited!

  12. Hannah F-S Jan 7 2013 at 2:19 pm #

    I’m most excited about Just One Day by Gayle Forman. I loved her other books and I can’t wait to read this one.

    • Vanessa Di Gregorio Jan 10 2013 at 10:43 am #

      I have to be honest… I’ve never read anything by Gayle Forman before! Which is a shame, because I’ve been meaning to read her for AGES! Maybe Just One Day will be the start for me…

  13. Danielle Nguyen Jan 7 2013 at 2:43 pm #

    I’m excited for a lot of these, but I think The Archived is number 1 on my list.

    • Vanessa Di Gregorio Jan 10 2013 at 10:44 am #

      I adored THE NEAR WITCH, so I’m super excited for THE ARCHIVED! Schwab’s writing is just LOVELY! And can we talk about how ridiculously gorgeous the cover for THE ARCHIVED is? STUNNING!

  14. Vivien Jan 7 2013 at 2:51 pm #

    Shades of Earth by Beth Revis!!!

    • Vanessa Di Gregorio Jan 10 2013 at 10:47 am #

      I haven’t read ACROSS THE UNIVERSE yet (for shame, I know!), but I think I’ll be picking it up soon!

  15. Christa Jan 7 2013 at 3:11 pm #

      Oh, and Level 2… How did I even miss that one?

      • Vanessa Di Gregorio Jan 10 2013 at 10:48 am #

        There’s just so many books, haha! And isn’t the cover for Shadowlands fantastic? It gives me serious cover lust!

  20. Elise Jan 7 2013 at 4:21 pm #

    I am so excited for Shades of Earth by Beth Revis! I cannot wait to read the end of this series!

  21. Nicole Settle Jan 7 2013 at 5:41 pm #

    I just finished reading Under the Never Sky like two hours ago so it’s a good thing the sequel comes out tomorrow. I’m also dying for Shades of Earth.

    • Vanessa Di Gregorio Jan 10 2013 at 10:53 am #

      Hahaha – good timing! It’s always nice when you don’t have to wait a year (or more!) for the next in a series to come out 🙂

  22. Katie Jan 7 2013 at 6:20 pm #

    Prophecy, The Cadet of Tildor, and Shades of Earth. But especially Shades of Earth.

  23. JQ Trotter Jan 7 2013 at 7:21 pm #

    So many amazing books came out/are coming out this month! I am super excited to read Level 2!!

  24. Shelver506 Jan 7 2013 at 8:28 pm #

    Oh goodness. I’ve read THROUGH THE EVER NIGHT, so I’m super-excited about that one, but I especially can’t wait for my preorder of THE ARCHIVED to come in.

  25. Ange/Libby Blog Jan 7 2013 at 10:01 pm #

    I can’t wait for the Madman’s Daughter! I love retelling of a classic story!

  26. Ashley Jan 7 2013 at 11:34 pm #

    SO MANY. But I’m mostly waiting for The Archived.

  27. Kate F. Jan 7 2013 at 11:41 pm #

    Oh gosh…. Where do I begin. Some new releases I’m looking forward too is The Madman’s Daughter, and Prodigy 🙂

  28. Danielle Jan 8 2013 at 1:01 am #

    I’m so excited for Shades of Earth, to find out how it ends! And also Vortex. I loved Tempest! 🙂

  29. Tiffany Jan 8 2013 at 8:22 am #

    The Archived!!!!!!! 😀

  30. Cordelia Fitzgerald Jan 8 2013 at 9:51 am #

    Through the Ever Night is at the top of my list!

  31. Meredith Anderson Jan 8 2013 at 10:07 am #

    I’m most excited for Gayle Forman’s Just One Day. I’m also looking forward to Everbound by Brodi Ashton. She’s a Utah author and I’m keeping my fingers crossed I can go to her release party at the King’s English Bookstore. They have some pretty great release parties. There’s usually cake. Mmmm cake. I can’t believe it but I haven’t read Legend yet. What is wrong with me? But I have a feeling as soon as I read it I’m going to want Prodigy.

    So many good books to choose from and SO little money. Good thing there’s libraries 😉


    • Vanessa Di Gregorio Jan 10 2013 at 10:51 am #

      MMMMMMM! Cake!

      And you’ll DEFINITELY want to read PRODIGY as soon as you finish reading LEGEND! (And it’s SOOOO good! And intense! And awesome! Seriously, you’ll love it!)

      And thank God for libraries! 😀

  32. Alex Ray Jan 8 2013 at 2:50 pm #

    Hands down, I can’t wait for Everbound by Brodi Ashton.

  33. Jesselle Jan 9 2013 at 7:29 am #

    I’m excited for Splintered, Just One Day, and The Archived! 🙂

  34. Jaime Morrow Jan 9 2013 at 3:19 pm #

    I’m most excited about THROUGH THE EVER NIGHT and THE MADMAN’S DAUGHTER, but there are a number of great releases this month. 🙂

  35. Michelle Smith Jan 9 2013 at 8:29 pm #

    Cadet of Tildor

  36. Lori T. Jan 9 2013 at 9:05 pm #

    PAPER VALENTINE, THROUGH THE EVER NIGHT, SHADES OF EARTH, THE PREY, THE MADMAN’S DAUGHTER, ASUNDER, VORTEX, EVERBOUND AND PRODIGY are all books I’m excited to read! It’s just impossible for me to pick one of these that I’m more excited for than the others 🙂

  37. Jasmine Stairs Jan 11 2013 at 7:33 am #

    Prophecy, and Shades of Earth, and Cadet of Tildor, and Star Wars: Scoundrels.

    And I wonder why I have money problems…

  38. Tara Jan 11 2013 at 1:28 pm #

    So many awesome books coming out! Definitely excited for Vortex, Prodigy and Requiem. I want to check out Level 2, as well.

  39. Sarah S Jan 11 2013 at 7:00 pm #

    I’m excited about so many of these, but especially THROUGH THE EVER NIGHT and JUST ONE DAY.

  40. Tiffany Jan 12 2013 at 9:27 pm #

    A finished copy of Prodigy!
    The ARC was great, so I can’t see the real copy out.
    Just One Day too. 🙂

  41. Calla Jan 13 2013 at 11:32 am #

    Through the Ever Night and Prodigy!! I can’t wait for Prodigy especially because I just bought Through the Ever Night!!
