Last week we talked about the books you liked best from 2007. So this week, what with it being a new year, and all, we’re looking forward….

What new books are you looking forward to most in 2008? Something new being published this year? Something you got as a gift for the holidays? Anything in particular that you’re planning to read in 2008 that you’re looking forward to? A classic, or maybe a best-seller from 2007 that you’re waiting to appear in paperback?

I am really looking forward to this year's reading. I have had a great reading year last year, and participating in various reading challenges really help me in catching up with my TBR pile (but this doesn't really work as I will add onto the pile by buying more, hehe). I have several books that I'm most looking forward to this year, with Mo Hayder's Ritual being the top on my list. She writes great crime thrillers in my opinion, and some of her books are not for the faint-hearted as they could be dark and haunting. But that is one reason why I like her books so much because Mo Hayder really knows how to build up the suspense tension and that's why I find most of her books to be page-turner.

Aside from Ritual, I am also looking forward to Stephenie Meyer's The Host because I like her Twilight series so much. I have yet to read Eclipse (the 3rd book of the Twilight series) but I know I will get around to it sooner or later. Coming on next is Kelley Armstrong's No Humans Involved which will be released in the coming February in paperback. Her books are an auto-buy for me because I was hooked to her Women of the Otherworld Series. Then again, I am also looking forward to any new releases by Neil Gaiman, Anne Stuart, Matthew Reilly etc and any other books that manages to capture my attention. There are so many books out there waiting for my exploration, the only thing I need is more reading time!
