Beth [Vixen 2]'s pick -
I know a lot of people have been doing this as their WoW, but seriously.. it sounds AMAZING! I hope I can grab this before it flies off the shelf!
The Darkest Minds - Alexandra Bracken
Expected Publication - December 18th, 2012

 When Ruby woke up on her tenth birthday, something about her had changed. Something alarming enough to make her parents lock her in the garage and call the police. Something that gets her sent to Thurmond, a brutal government "rehabilitation camp." She might have survived the mysterious disease that's killed most of America's children, but she and the others have emerged with something far worse: frightening abilities they cannot control.
Now sixteen, Ruby is one of the dangerous ones.  When the truth comes out, Ruby barely escapes Thurmond with her life. Now she's on the run, desperate to find the one safe haven left for kids like her--East River. She joins a group of kids who escaped their own camp. Liam, their brave leader, is falling hard for Ruby. But no matter how much she aches for him, Ruby can't risk getting close. Not after what happened to her parents.
When they arrive at East River, nothing is as it seems, least of all its mysterious leader. But there are other forces at work, people who will stop at nothing to use Ruby in their fight against the government. Ruby will be faced with a terrible choice, one that may mean giving
up her only chance at a life worth living.


Kait [Vixen 1]'s pick -

Just One Day - Gayle Forman
Expected Publication: January 8th 2013

Just One Day (Just One Day, #1)
Goodreads Blurb:
A breathtaking journey toward self-discovery and true love, from the author of If I Stay
When sheltered American good girl Allyson "LuLu" Healey first meets laid-back Dutch actor Willem De Ruiter at an underground performance of Twelfth Night in England, there’s an undeniable spark. After just one day together, that spark bursts into a flame, or so it seems to Allyson, until the following morning, when she wakes up after a whirlwind day in Paris to discover that Willem has left. Over the next year, Allyson embarks on a journey to come to terms with the narrow confines of her life, and through Shakespeare, travel, and a quest for her almost-true-love, to break free of those confines.

I have been on a serious contemporary kick lately and this sounds like a book fit for me. It doesn't hurt that I know a couple people, mainly Jamie over on The Perpetual Page Turner , who have been raving about this book. I can't wait to read it myself.
