I've been meaning to start this meme for awhile now, and figured I'd start today. :o) I have so many books I'm looking forward to this year, along with most of us that I wanted to join in the fun of sharing just what I can't wait for. So here goes!

Synopsis: At once an homage to one of America's greatest writers and a page-turning psychological mystery that is equal parts horror, humor, and romance, NEVERMORE is the story of Varen -- a Poe-fan and goth -- and Isobel -- a cheerleader and unlikely heroine. When a Lit. project pairs the two together, Isobel finds herself steadily swept into Varen's world, one that he has created in his notebook and in his mind, one where the terrifying stories of Edgar Allan Poe come to life. Isobel slowly learns that dreams can be much more powerful than she'd ever expected, and that pain and despair come in all sorts of shades. As labels of "goth" and "cheerleader" fade away, she sees more in Varen than a tall, pale outcast, and a consuming romance is braced against the ever-clearer horror that the most terrifying realities are those within our own minds.
When Isobel has a single chance to rescue Varen from the shadows of his own nightmares, will she be able to save him -- and herself?
As soon as I read what this book was about - I knew it was a must read for me. Sounds interesting, something with a different twist, including the fact that Edgar Allen Poe is a huge part of one of the main charaters lives.
I have this book on preoder and am really looking forward to reading it. What about you guys? How's this book sound to you?
