Top Ten Books I Resolved to Read in 2013

Hey everyone! It's New Years Day, and not only that, but it's Tuesday! This week's topic for Top Ten Tuesday hosted by the Broke and the Bookish (link in sidebar) is a nice way to start off the new year. As well, I am again going to cheat and put series as one, and I will probably go well over 10! :P

Top Ten Books I Resolve to Read in 2013
January 1, 2013
  1. 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. 
  2. Divergent #3 by Veronica Roth: Well, duh! This was one of my favourite series in 2012. 
  3. 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.
  4. Gone by Michael Grant: I really want to love this series. I hope I love this series! I can't wait to read it.
  5. Legend and Prodigy by Marie Lu: I've heard a lot of great things about these books and would love to try them. 
  6. 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.
  7. 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. 
  8. 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.
  9. Eon duology by Alison Goodman: Yay! Chinese mythology + dragons + action= my type of book! 
  10. The Girl of Fire and Thorns by Rae Carson: High fantasy!!!!!! I need some high fantasy and this is a must-read. 
  11. The Demon King by Cinda Williams Chima: More high fantasy? Yes please!
  12. Under the Never Sky series by Veronica Rossi: Sounds like a great dystopia. 
  13. 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. 
  14. The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater: This just sounds really, really good. And the cover is amazing!
  15. 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. 
  16. Second Chance Summer by Morgan Matson: Sounds like a really touching, beautifully written story that I can't wait to read. 
  17. 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!
  18. The Archived by Victoria Schwab: A new series that sounds phenomenal. It's already on hold from the library!
  19. The Program by Suzanne Young: Another amazing-sounding dystopia debut. 
  20. Mind Games by Kiersten White: The beginning to a new series from the author of Paranormalcy. More dystopia!
  21. 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. 
  22. Any Sarah Dessen book: Because I've heard she's a great author and her books sound great.
  23. 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.
