Top Ten Books I Resolve To Read In 2013Having not read too much before 2012, there are still TONS of books for me to catch up on. These are really in no particular order, and there’s SO MANY MORE, ugh.
1. Daimon/Half-Blood/Pure/Deity/Elixir by Jennifer L. Armentrout
Ahhh, I can’t wait to finally read this series. I love, love, LOVE Jennifer’s Lux series, and I have the Covenant series ready and waiting at home. Signed copies of Half-Blood, Pure, and Elixir – from the giveaway I won. I’m still speechless about it, but yeah, I can’t wait to read them all.
2. Incarnate by Jodi Meadows
Stunning cover and interesting premise. I feel so bad for not having gotten around to this one yet. I hope I’ll love it so much I’ll move on to the sequel right away.
3. Cinder by Marissa MeyerI’ve been so on the fence about reading this one but I decided I totally need to check it out. At first look it didn’t seem too interesting, but I’ve seen so many glowing reviews, and Cinderella, Sailor Moon-esque stories? That’s gotta be something for me.
4. The Iron King by Julie KagawaEveryone seems to be completely in love with this series. I dunno, I’m still skeptical about the whole faeries thing… I haven’t read any stories about faeries before so I have no idea if it’s anything for me. But the amazing positive reviews I keep seeing come by about this series make me curious enough to check it out.
5. Blackbringer by Laini TaylorLook! Another faerie book! Hahaha, I fell in love with Laini’s writing style last year when I discovered Daughter of Smoke and Bone, so I’m resolved to read all of her books really. I’ll start with this one. I’m so excited!
6. What’s Left of Me by Kat ZhangSO intriguing. The concept is awesome. The cover is amazingly beautiful. The reviews I’ve seen are pretty good. I don’t know, it’s just a solid pick.
7. The Book Thief by Markus ZusakI know, it’s like a disgrace that I haven’t read this yet. Everyone goes on and on about it like it’s a book that really stays with you. I was just distracted by so many other reads last year. But this is definitely high on my list.
8. The Name of the Wind by Patrick RothfussEvery once in a while I have to shake it up with a bit more mature books than the typical YA genre, and I tend to do that with fantasy. So searching for good fantasy series, this name just kept popping up. So I’m really, really anxious to check this out. Apparently the last installment is coming out this year? A nice piece of news 🙂
9. The Golden Compass by Philip PullmanI knowwww, I’ve never read the His Dark Materials series. I am very ashamed. But it’s high on my list. From everything I’ve heard from other people it’s really a series I probably will love.
10. The Hobbit by J. R. R. TolkienI read The Lord of the Rings last year for the first time, but I didn’t manage to get around to The Hobbit, despite my goal of finishing it before the film came out. Oops. Oh well, I will read it in 2013 and then I can finally cross that all off my list.
Honorable mentions:There’s so many, agh, so these really should be on the list as well and are also high on the to-read pile.
