Top Ten Books I Resolve to Read in 2013
|January 1, 2013|
- The Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien: It's happening. Finally, it's going to happen. I'm super excited to read them now, as I just watched the Hobbit in theatres on December 23 (review to come soon!) and I received the boxed set of the novels for Christmas.
- Divergent #3 by Veronica Roth: Well, duh! This was one of my favourite series in 2012.
- Study series by Maria V. Snyder: These books sound AMAZING! I loved Inside Out and Outside In, and am ready to give some of her new books a try.
- Gone by Michael Grant: I really want to love this series. I hope I love this series! I can't wait to read it.
- Legend and Prodigy by Marie Lu: I've heard a lot of great things about these books and would love to try them.
- Angelfall by Susan Ee: If I don't read this in the next four or five days, then I need to read it next year! I've heard simply amazing things about the book.
- Cinder by Marissa Meyer: My friend read this book and really enjoyed it. It sounds like an excellent book, and I've been meaning to read it since before the summer.
- Chaos Walking trilogy by Patrick Ness: This is definitely going to be a October read to celebrate Halloween. I'm not a big fan of horror, but this sounds like a great mix of action/dystopia/horror.
- Eon duology by Alison Goodman: Yay! Chinese mythology + dragons + action= my type of book!
- The Girl of Fire and Thorns by Rae Carson: High fantasy!!!!!! I need some high fantasy and this is a must-read.
- The Demon King by Cinda Williams Chima: More high fantasy? Yes please!
- Under the Never Sky series by Veronica Rossi: Sounds like a great dystopia.
- Demonglass and Spellbound by Rachel Hawkins: Time to finish off this series! I loved Hex Hall and really want to read the next two books.
- The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater: This just sounds really, really good. And the cover is amazing!
- The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater: Seems to remind me a bit of the Hunger Games for some reason, just by the synopsis. But it sounds really amazing.
- Second Chance Summer by Morgan Matson: Sounds like a really touching, beautifully written story that I can't wait to read.
- The Giver by Lois Lowry: I've never read this and I said I would last year and the year before. About time I get my act together and read this!
- The Archived by Victoria Schwab: A new series that sounds phenomenal. It's already on hold from the library!
- The Program by Suzanne Young: Another amazing-sounding dystopia debut.
- Mind Games by Kiersten White: The beginning to a new series from the author of Paranormalcy. More dystopia!
- Any John Green book: I have friends who absolutely love him and his novels. I'd love to read his works because they sound very emotional and seem to have great stories.
- Any Sarah Dessen book: Because I've heard she's a great author and her books sound great.
- Any book I do not finish from my December haul, as well as the books from my January haul. And any book sitting on my library pile right now. :)
Thanks for reading my (very long) list! I can't wait to read all these books.
