Top Ten Books I Resolve to Read in 2013
Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.
HAPPY NEW YEAR!! I hope you all have a wonderful year full of good times and good books. (:
1. Cinder by Marissa Meyer
Everyone loves this and I adore retellings. I was waiting until the paperback to buy it, though. (If only I had enough money to buy all the books I want as soon as they come out...)
2. Insurgent by Veronica Roth
I've owned this one for months and just haven't been in the mood for it. 
Cinder (Lunar Chronicles, #1)Insurgent (Divergent, #2)
3. The Casual Vacancy by J.K. Rowling
Thanks to school I haven't had much time for sitting  down and reading for hours like I want to. I want a day or two where I don't have to do anything but read this.
4. Seraphina by Rachel Hartman
I started this one but stopped once Wicked Jealous came out and then never went back to it.
The Casual VacancySeraphina (Seraphina, #1)
5. Mastiff by Tamora Pierce
Finally got my own copy of this for the holidays! So excited!
6. Across the Universe by Beth Revis
While everyone loved these books, I wasn't too interested until I read some of Beth Revis' blog posts. She seems so cool!
Mastiff (Beka Cooper, #3)Across the Universe (Across the Universe, #1)
7. The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater
I need to read a Maggie Stiefvater book! I'm not a huge fan of werewolves, but this book sounds really good.
8. Stardust by Neil Gaiman
I desperately need to read a book by Neil Gaiman!
The Raven Boys (Raven Cycle, #1)Stardust
9. Persuasion by Jane Austen
Basically, I'm in the mood for a Jane Austen book. Another reason is so I can read...
10. For Darkness Shows the Stars by Diana Peterfreund
... this book, which is an adaptation of Persuasion.
PersuasionFor Darkness Shows the Stars (For Darkness Shows the Stars, #1)
What books are you going to read in 2013?

  1. Nice list! I have Austen on my list, too, because I've only ever read Pride and Prejudice and really need to get with the times. :) I'm looking forward to Cinder, too, although it didn't make my list; I have the paperback version pre-ordered. And yay, Stardust! I think that's my favorite Gaiman book. :)

  9. I'm reading Cinder right now via audiobook. It is wonderful! Did you local library not have Cinder?

    I want to read some Jane Austen this year, too. I have read Pride and Prejudice (my favorite book ever), but nothing else by her. Whenever I get a craving for Austen, I always end up going back to P&P. I'm hoping to branch out this year :)

    Good luck on your reading resolutions!

    Here's to 2013!

  11. Some great books you got on your list! I'm really pumped for The Raven Boys and I absolutely have to read Cinder, Across the Universe and For the Darkness. And who wouldn't be willing to read The Casual Vacancy at least once.

    Thanks for stopping by my Top Ten Tuesday!

  15. What an awesome list! I haven't read Persuasion (though I'm planning to) and Mastiff (which I really should because it's TAMORA PIERCE) and Across the Universe (though I have it!) and The Casual Vacancy (which I'm intimidated by.

    Other thatn that, I can vouch for all the other titles on your list as I absolutely LOVED them.
