Irish YA(ish) books I’m looking forward to in 2011…

Angel Kiss (Laura Jane Cassidy) is out in May. Heard a bit of this at the Literary Café and am very excited about it! Realistic fiction set in Ireland, with a supernatural-crime twist for good measure.

The Real Rebecca (Anna Carey) is out in February. Sounds terrific – girl with a mother who’s a writer who’s written a book for young people and everyone thinks the girl is her. (I was looking forward to this anyway, because Anna writes wise reviews about bookish things, but the story has definitely got me more intrigued.)

Flick (Geraldine Meade) will be out sometime next year, release date TBC. Very excited about this one. The description says ‘not for the faint-hearted’ which is always a good sign.

The final volume of the Demon’s Lexicon trilogy, The Demon’s Surrender (Sarah Rees Brennan), is published here and in the UK in July. (US edition is June I think.) From Sin’s perspective this time.

Finally, the fourth Amy Green book (Sarah Webb) is out in May. Hopefully with plenty of Bailey Otis…. 🙂
