On My Wishlist is a weekly feature ran by the great book blog Book Chick City. To learn more about this meme, get the details here.
This week's On My Wishlist is focusing on some books I've discovered as I'm doing research on the publishers who will be in attendance at ALA.
The Reapers Are the Angels: A Novel-Alden Bell
Publisher: Henry Holt for Young Readers
Publication Date: 8/10
For twenty-five years, civilization has survived in meager enclaves, guarded against a plague of the dead. Temple wanders this blighted landscape, keeping to herself and keeping her demons inside her heart. She can't remember a time before the zombies, but she does remember an old man who took her in and the younger brother she cared for until the tragedy that set her on a personal journey toward redemption. Moving back and forth between the insulated remnants of society and the brutal frontier beyond, Temple must decide where ultimately to make a home and find the salvation she seeks.
They had me at zombies. I am asking for this one for sure at Henry Holt if they don't have it on display.
Publication Date: 9/10
A heartwarming tale of terror in the middle of the zombie apocalypse.
Meet Sarah and David.
Once upon a time they met and fell in love. But now they're on the verge of divorce and going to couples' counseling. On a routine trip to their counselor, they notice a few odd things - the lack of cars on the highway, the missing security guard, and the fact that their counselor, Dr. Kelly, is ripping out her previous client's throat.
Meet the Zombies.
Now, Sarah and David are fighting for survival in the middle of the zombie apocalypse. But, just because there are zombies, doesn't mean your other problems go away. If the zombies don't eat their brains, they might just kill each other.
Another zombie book? Yes, please. I saw this book in several book blogger's BEA piles, so I'm hoping it'll be at ALA.
Vixen (The Flappers)-Lila Fine
Publication Date: 12/10
Set in Jazz Age Chicago, the first book, Vixen, follows 17-year-old socialite Gloria Carmody, who longs to be a flapper and is caught between her conservative fiancé and a sexy jazz musician.
The 1920's intrigue me. I'm also writing a novel set at least partially in the 20's, so I'm anxious to get my hands on books set in the time period!
