Top Ten Tuesday: Books I WILL Read in 2013 (Probably)

January 1, 2013 Top Ten Tuesday 44

Happy New Year Everyone! I hope everyone had celebrated the new year in style (and safely)!


Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme created by the awesome people at The Broke and Bookish, who love lists as much as I do!

Top Ten Books I Resolve To Read In 2013

My reading is definitely going to be slower this year, but that doesn’t mean I won’t (try to) get to these books! Obviously as they are books “I resolve to read” these are all books that have been released before 2013.


1. The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest by Stieg Larsson

It’s possible that I could have told my mom I was going to read this last June. It’s possible that I didn’t. It’s possible that my mom read all The Hunter Games books for me and I still didn’t get to this one. It’s possible that I should fix that, and fix it soon.

2. The Diviners by Libba Bray

I’ll be perfectly honest. The size of this book is holding me back. It’s so big and I know it’ll take longer so I kind of pretend it’s not really sitting on my shelf.

3. If I Stay by Gayle Forman

I know! I know! Nothing else to really say except I’m really going to make an effort to read it this year.

4. Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor

I feel like this book is being shoved in my face everywhere right now. It’s on all the best of lists (or the second book, Days of Blood and Starlight) that I think about reading it all the time!

5. Forever and a Day by Jill Shalvis

I love Lucky Harbor so much and I’ve had this book for what seems like forever (ha, ha!) and I still haven’t picked it up.


6. Bad Girls Don’t Die by Kate Alender

I’ve had this book for sooooo long. I don’t even remember what it’s about any more, but I do know that I still want to read it.

7. Paper Towns by John Green

I know this is a lot of peoples favorite John Green book, but I have yet to read it.

8. See Jane Date by Melissa Senate

So a long, long time ago I saw the made for TV movie (staring Charisma Carpenter) and fell in love with it, but I couldn’t find the book. Then I got an ereader, found the book, bought the book, and there it sits.

9. Born Wicked by Jessica Spotswood

A purchase made on a whim at Walmart because the cover is so freaking gorgeous. I hate that they changed it. I really do.

10. Speechless by Hannah Harrington

I’ve heard nothing but great things about it, I just need to make the time for it.

    Isn’t it funny how many books get shoved in our faces. I feel the same way about Daughter of Smoke and Bone. We need to read it this year.

  2. Melody Simpson

    I feel the same way about Daughter of Smoke and Bone. Must read it soon! Looking forward to getting to If I Stay & Speechless among others on your list as well!

  3. Sara Viti

    I’ve bought both The Diviners and Born Wicked but I still haven’t read them. I’m not really scared by how big the Diviners looks but I’m scared, on the other hand, by how silly Born Wicked sounds.. I guess I shouldn’t buy it LOL

    I wish you an amazing new year!

    “I don’t even remember what it’s about any more, but I do know that I still want to read it”
    LMAO. I’m the same way.

    I have a physical copy of the Diviners and I will read it but I hate the font inside the book SO much. Daughter of Smoke and Bone has the same clunky and huge font (it’s the same publisher). This book could have been half the weight if they would have just used a different font.

    You have to have to have to read Paper Towns! And I think you’ll really enjoy The Diviners and Daughter of Smoke and Bone.

  6. Hollie

    Paper Towns is amazing, it’s my favourite John Green book. I adored If I Stay too. The Diviners is high on my list for this year as is Daughter of Smoke and Bone. Great list!

    YAY! I’m back to commenting!!! I’ve missed your blog! Thanks so much for sticking with me and commenting so often even though I’ve been horrible at it myself for the past few months. But I’m BACK! ;)

    Anyway, great list! I just read Daughter of Smoke & Bone myself. It was good! And yes, you MUST read Paper Towns ASAP! Sooo good! I need to read Speechless and If I Stay as well.

    Happy New Year! :D

    I really hope that you like If I Stay…at least enough to read the sequel because I LOVED the sequel!

    Great selection of books, you won’t be disappointed with Daughter of Smoke & Bone and Born Wicked.

    I’m also looking forward to reading speechless as Hannah Harrington’s Saving June was fantastic!

  11. Kate Midnight Book Girl

    You make me heart happy with Daughter of Smoke and Bone!!

    Also, I used to own See Jane Date once upon a time, and I remember liking it! The movie was okay, but as usual, the book is better!
