    My most anticipated book of 2012? Easy- Days of Blood and Starlight by Laini Taylor. The first book in the series (Daughter of Smoke and Bone) was hands down the best book I read last year.

  27. This was a hard challenge since there are so many great 2012 books that have already released and have yet to come out.

  28. Hi! The above wouldn't be my pick at all. 'Harper Teen'? Eek. ;) May we pick what we wish at Book Depository? *Hugs*

    There's a true animal story that came out long before our time, 1966! An elderly couple raises a quail from birth! It was famous, I finally found a used copy last year, and will finally open it. The cover is at the bottom of this page. :) http://cmriedel.wordpress.com/2012/07/11/quail-moon-ghosts/
