Instead of writing one huge post of all the books I’m looking forward to in 2012, I decided to highlight some of these books in their own posts throughout the rest of this year. That way I can include as much information as I want about each one without it being an 8-mile long post and can just compile a list of links to these posts at the end of the year.

Discount Armageddon by Seanan McGuire

Discount Armageddon is the first book in a new urban fantasy series by Seanan McGuire, InCryptid. It will be released in March 2012. The next book, Midnight Blue-Light Special, is scheduled for March 2013.

While I’m a little sad that this new series means there will only be one book in McGuire’s October Daye series coming out next year instead of two like the past couple of years, I’m really excited about this new series! It sounds like a lot of fun, and I’ve really come to love the October Daye series because it is entertaining with great characters (and it turns out things aren’t always easy for them). It’s a series that has just been getting better and better, and I’m really looking forward to reading the first book in this new series.

About Discount Armageddon:

Ghoulies. Ghosties. Long-legged beasties. Things that go bump in the night… The Price family has spent generations studying the monsters of the world, working to protect them from humanity-and humanity from them. Enter Verity Price. Despite being trained from birth as a cryptozoologist, she’d rather dance a tango than tangle with a demon, and is spending a year in Manhattan while she pursues her career in professional ballroom dance. Sounds pretty simple, right? It would be, if it weren’t for the talking mice, the telepathic mathematicians, the asbestos supermodels, and the trained monster-hunter sent by the Price family’s old enemies, the Covenant of St. George. When a Price girl meets a Covenant boy, high stakes, high heels, and a lot of collateral damage are almost guaranteed. To complicate matters further, local cryptids are disappearing, strange lizard-men are appearing in the sewers, and someone’s spreading rumors about a dragon sleeping underneath the city…
