Top Ten Tuesday: Books I'm Hoping to Read in 2013

It has been far too long since I last participated in Top Ten Tuesday! But it's the start of a new year, so what better time to get back into the swing of things? This meme is hosted by The Broke and The Bookish, and this week's topic is "Books I Resolve to Read in 2013", although in my case this is just a list of the books I'm hoping to get to (I never make any official New Year's resolutions, since I am pretty much bound not to keep them!).

Some of these are books that have been sitting on my shelf for a while now, some are for review, and others are books that are due to be released this year.

1.) Bloodlines by Richelle Mead – I got a few chapters into this one, then took a break and haven't gotten back to it. I need to pick it up again! It seemed to be moving rather slowly at the beginning, but hopefully the pace gets a little more lively once things get going?

2.) Legend by Marie Lu – I know a bunch of bloggers really enjoyed this one, and I got it for Christmas back in 2011...so it needs to get read, pronto!

3.) Reached by Ally Condie – I had some issues with Crossed, but I'm still looking forward to seeing how this one wraps the series up.

4.) Dark Triumph by Robin LaFevers – Grave Mercy was a gripping read. Fingers crossed that Dark Triumph is as well!

5.) The as-yet-unnamed final book in the Divergent series by Veronica Roth – I'm sure this one is on a lot of other bloggers' lists, and I expect it'll be as heart-pounding and action-packed as the previous two!

6.) The Secret Keeper by Kate Morton – because the intricacy of the storytelling in The Forgotten Garden was quite impressive, and I'm interested to see what her latest book's like. 

7.) Enshadowed by Kelly Creagh – I enjoyed Nevermore, and need to get to this one soon! Should probably re-read Nevermore first though, because it's been a while...

8.) Parallel by Lauren Miller – the premise of this one sounds very cool (it fits into one of my gaps) and plus, it's New Adult!

9.) The Forsaken by Lisa M. Stasse – I think this one's gotten some mixed reviews, but from the description it sounds like a good read for when I'm in a Hunger Games-esque kind of reading mood.

10.) Five Flavors of Dumb by Antony John – because I needed at least one straight-up contemporary on this list, right? And this one has garnered a lot of positive reviews and is sitting on my shelf, waiting to be read. 

There are many more, of course, but this blog post would be massive if I listed them all!

What books are you resolved, or at least hoping, to read this year? You can link up your posts on The Broke and The Bookish blog here!


  1. I am really looking forward to Parallel...and Five Flavors of Dumb looks like it'll be a really fun read!

  3. I really need to read Grave Mercy - I'm sure I'll love it! You look like you have a year of great reading ahead if you read these books Danya!

    Happy reading :)

  4. Legend was great. It took me awhile to get into it but once I did, it was so much fun to read.

    So excited for Parallel!

    I must start reading Richelle Mead & Ally Condie this year.

    Great list!


I love comments, so post away!
