Top Ten Most Anticipated for 2013
Anyways, here is a tiny handful of the 2013 releases I'm eager to devour.
1.) Just One Day by Gayle Forman
Thanks to my first ever While You Wait post, you guys know I'm excited for this one. As soon as I get my hands on a copy, I'll be enjoying it along with my Snuggie and a hot beverage. Or some ice cream. Or both.
2.) The Cadet of Tildor by Alex Lidell
Tamora Pierce meets George R.R. Martin? Say no more.
3.) Level 2 by Lenore Appelhans
I always enjoy a good dystopian novel, and this one is written by Lenore of Presenting Lenore. I'm looking forward to picking it up once it's out.
4.) The Inventor's Secret by Andrea Cremer
Steampunk by Andrea Cremer? Now, I actually have yet to read any steampunk novels, but given that Cremer has a PhD in history and writes awesome books, I'm faithful that this one will be totally awesome.
5.) Paper Valentine by Brenna Yovanoff
Although Yovanoff's sophomore novel, The Space Between, is still waiting on my TBR pile, I loved The Replacement enough that I'll immediately pick this one up. Plus, look at that cover!
6.) This is What Happy Looks Like by Jennifer E. Smith
I adored The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight and You've Got Mail. This one is another no brainer to me.
7.) 17 & Gone by Nova Ren Suma
I've had Suma's last novel, Imaginary Girls, on my TBR for a while now. I'm a little dubious because it sounds another book that I wasn't in love with. However, Kelly over at Stacked Books raved over how this book not only has a great story, but is also of exceptional literary quality. Also? I'm rather in love with the cover of this one.
8.) City Of A Thousand Dolls by Miriam Forster
Can we talk about how much intrigue this cover creates? At first glance, it seems incredibly simple, yet there's so much detail. I must know what it all means! AND the summary makes it sound like a wonderful, Tamora Pierce-esque fantasy. I anticipate purchasing this one the day it releases.
9.) Invisibility by Andrea Cremer
I'll admit to being a little dubious about this one. The summary doesn't sound entirely like my thing. However, Andrea Cremer and David Levithan are both involved. I'll definitely be giving it a shot.
10.) Isla and the Happily Ever After by Stephanie Perkins
Um, DUH! I'm excited because this one finally has a summary on GoodReads. I believe Stephanie Perkins mentioned on Twitter that the May 7th release date was merely a placeholder so Penguin would have something to put in its catalog. I'm hoping it'll be confirmed or denied soon, because I really want this book!
And those, my friends, are only a few of the books I cannot wait to read in 2013. Let me know what books you're eager to read, because I'd love to know.
