What books do you recommend to purchase in February?  What about books to wait for (ie. library/pbs wishlist)?

I have my eye on Delirium, The Iron Witch but that is it so far....any other suggestions?

I will be buying Angel by James Patterson. I need to know what happens and I can't wait for the library to get it in ebook form.

I just got done reading Angel and it seemed more like a filler book to get us through until the finale. I wasn't too impressed with it.

Yea. I think I'm in the minority. Everyone (most anyway) seems to hate these books, think they are just OK, but I really like them. I don't mind filler :) Still looking forward to it!

There's a thread in this forum that lists new books coming out by month - Young Adult Books To Wishlist-UPDATED 1/18 You might find new books by authors you've liked in the past by looking at that list.  I personally am looking forward to Jenna and Jonah's Fauxmance, So Shelly, and Pink.

I did look at that and got some ideas but I'm always looking for other suggestions - I don't want to "miss" something because I'm too focused on just the authors/type of book I really like - I am going to check out your suggestions.  Plus I was looking for some input from those who may have read ARC's re: what was really good/worth buying v. getting from library =)

Oh, I wasn't saying there was anything wrong with your question/thread!  I didn't mean that at all.  I was just pointing you to it in case you hadn't seen it (sometimes it falls to the second page).
