Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature created at the fabulous The Broke and the Bookish, featuring weekly top ten lists on a variety of bookish topics. This Tuesday’s topic is Top Ten 2013 Releases We are Most Excited For. Just over one month to go before we ring in 2013! Are you ready?!
Level 2 by Lenore Appelhans and Crash by Lisa McMann: These two series starters sound especially promising. I’ve been enjoying reading Lenore’s blog since I started Love YA Lit back in 2010 and have heard nothing but fabulous reviews so far for her debut novel. Lisa McMann’s new series sounds intriguing and I enjoy her other work.
Game by Barry Lyga and Scarlet by Marissa Meyer: These two follow-ups to two of my absolute favorite reads of 2012 are at the top of my 2013 Must Read list. If you haven’t read I Hunt Killers and Cinder yet, get on that!
untitled book #3 in the Divergent trilogy by Veronica Roth: I’m not alone on this one, right? I know my radio kids are dying to read the final installment in the Divergent trilogy. They only talk about it EVERY SINGLE SHOW! (I’m exaggerating, but only slightly.)
THE STAND-ALONES (at least that’s what I’ve been lead to believe)
This is What Happy Looks Like by Jennifer E. Smith and Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell: These are the two contemporary romances on my list. While this isn’t really my genre, I have high hopes for Smith’s 2013 release, having loved her 2012 release The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight. And my buddy Capillya over at That Cover Girl, claimed that Eleanor & Park broke her heart and I’m always in the mood for a little literary heartbreaking (that’s normal right?).
When We Wake by Karen Healey: “Be the change you wish to see in the world” – even if you’re cryogenically frozen and wake up in a world 100-years different than the one you last knew. That’s what I get from the description of When We Wake and I couldn’t be more excited!
Odd Duck by Sara Varon and Cecil Castellucci: Sara Varon is a favorite and I’m excited to see her teamed up with Castellucci. This one is bound to be cute.
The Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman: Ok, so this last one is not so YA, but who cares; It’s Neil Gaiman and it sounds fabulous.
