New Year, New Books! Get A Sneak Peek At 2012’s Most Anticipated Books

LOS ANGELES (CBS) — What books are getting the most buzz for 2012? Goodreads Feature Editor Jessica Donaghy gave us a sneak peek at what to pick up this year.

The first quarter of the year is peppered with new books that have fans eagerly awaiting release day, including “The Orphan Master’s Son” by Adam Johnson, which comes out Jan. 10. The book is set in North Korea during the regime of Kim Jong-Il, whose recent death is driving more curiosity about the country.

Fans are also eager to see a new book from bestseller Anne Rice. “The Wolf Gift” will be released on Feb. 14 and is about — you guessed it — werewolves.
