My Most Anticipated Releases of 2013

For each month I (mostly) picked one sequel, one book by a debut author, and one book by a more established author.  There are books I'm anticipating that aren't on this list because I already have a copy.  Despite organizing them month by month, many dates are tentative (and some were made up by me).  Sometimes I fudged the dates a little to make things fit.  I gave up on December really.

I am sorry guys, but I have no clue what I'm gonna read in December.  Eliminating books from earlier in the year took all the fight out of me.

Hooked January: Shades of Earth by Beth Revis (Across the Universe, Book 3)
 Paper Valentine by Brenda Yovanoff
Hooked by Liz Fichera

February: The Indigo Spell by Richelle Mead (Bloodlines, Book 3)

I'm considering this an unofficial Waiting On Wednesday, which is hosted by Jill of Breaking the Spine.


  1. I haven't heard of most of the tiles in your unofficial WoW post but I am definitely looking forward to City of a Thousand Dolls! Even though I've heard discouraging reviews about it, I am keeping my hopes up~

    1. Yeah, with books I'm anticipating, I like to read it and make up my own mind.

  2. So many good books on this list! I want to read at least one from each month (and sometimes more than that). You've been so proactive in listing them all - good luck! Happy reading in 2013. *grin*

    p.s. I have a feeling that December will take care of itself.

    1. Believe me, I was regretting trying to make an organized list by the end. I think my choice that surprised me most is MAID OF SECRETS, since I'm not a big historical fan. But the summary promised thieves and swashbuckling, which are things I love in fantasy, so why not give it a try?

      And I'm sure I'll have a billion books I want in December by the time it rolls around. It might actually be relieving to have a month I was uninterested in.

  3. I just finished Hooked and am dying for Shades of Earth!!

    1. I am on tenterhooks! How in the world will Revis end it?

      And BTW, Level 2 wasn't on the list because I already have a copy. It is definitely worthy of anticipation.

  4. I can't wait for Indigo Spell either.
    Hope you get to read it soon!

    1. Yeah, some people aren't as big on Bloodlines as Vampire Academy, but I've really been enjoying the series.

  5. Nice picks! i really want to read Paper Valentine too. I think Doll Bones and All Our Pretty Songs look great as well, though.


    1. All Our Pretty Songs looks so cool, and I didn't even know about it until I started looking closer at upcoming debuts.
