Books I *really* really want

Renay is asking Herding the Cats participants to make a list of books that they really really want to read.

1. Make a post talking about books that are coming out that you're looking forward to.
2. Why those books. Include love for previous works in a series, love for an author, love for a random review that caught your eye and now you have to have those books or you'll DIE.

Notes: the books have to be those of the unreleased variety at the time your post is written. Images encouraged if available!

Books I want
Girl, Hero Girl Hero by Carrie Jones
I love Carrie Jones, and I'd love to read her third book!!!

We have much the same wish list, although mine is considerably expanded due to wanting books you've already reviewed but I haven't been able to get my hands on.

I really want to get my hands on Girl Hero and Hero Type, too. So excited!

I loved the first two books in Jeanne Duprau's series, I still have to read the 3rd and I have an advanced readers copy of the 4th sitting in my gigantesque pile of to be read books.
