2013 is finally here and there's plenty happening this year. So, what books are you all looking forward to reading most this year? Here's my personal list of books that I can't wait to get my hands on!
Focus (The Crescent Chronicles #2) by Alyssa Rose Ivy
Release Date: January 31st 2013
I adored book one (Flight) in this fabulous trilogy so i'm super excited to see what lies ahead in Focus!
9. The Elite (The Selection #2) by Kiera Cass
Release Date: April 23rd 2013
The Selection was good but it didn't totally blow me away. However i'm excited to read book to and i'm hoping we get to see America be a bit more kick-ass. I think we'll get a bit more action in this one!
Out of The Easy by Ruta Sepetys
Release Date: February 12th 2013
I completely fell in love with Ruta's first novel, Between Shades of Gray, so i'm really excited to read this book. Her writing style is perfect so I know i'm not going to be disappointed! The fact that this book is set in New Orleans during the 1950s definitely makes it sound more interesting.
7. Perfect Scoundrels (Heist Society #3) by Ally Carter
Release Date: February 5th 2013
I'm loving the Heist Society series at the moment, not quite as much as The Gallagher Girls, but I am excited to see what happens next for Kat and Hale. Can we also just take a moment to appreciate how utterly gorgeous the covers always are for this series??
6. The Madness Underneath (Shades of London #2) by Maureen Johnson
Release Date: February 26th 2013
The first book in this series totally won me over. The characters are fantastic and the setting is fabulous. The plot in book one was a brilliant mystery so i'm hoping that the plot in book two is just as awesome. I also love the narration of the story from Rory, she is a great protagonist!
5. Awaken by Meg Cabot
Expected Release Date: May 2013
Meg Cabot is my favourite author and whilst I don't think the Abandon Trilogy has quite lived up to her other series, i've really enjoyed reading the story of Pierce and John. I can't wait to see how the trilogy ends in Awake, especially after the ending of Underworld!
4. The Moon and More by Sarah Dessen
Release Date: June 4th 2013
There has not been one book by Sarah Dessen that I haven't liked so i'm really looking forward to The Moon and More! I'm hoping it will be on This Lullaby levels, since that's one of my all time favourite reads. Sarah Dessen is the perfect 'summer' author in my opinion.
3. Requiem (Delirium #3) by Lauren Oliver
Release Date: March 5th 2013
This is a fantastic series that I love. I love the characters, the plot, everything! It's going to be bittersweet to say goodbye to this series but I can't wait to see how it all ends!
2. Prodigy (Legend #2) by Marie Lu
Release Date: January 29th 2013
I am pathetically excited about Prodigy! I adored Legend - June and Day are two of my favourite book characters. The writing in Legend is so awesome and it was one of the best dystopian novels i've read (which is a pretty big deal considering how many there are out there these days!) so I can't wait to get started on book 2.
So what book am I looking forward to the most this year??
1. Clockwork Princess (The Infernal Devices #3) by Cassandra Clare
Release Date: March 19th 2013
Oh boy, oh boy. I really think that i'm going to have to take a week off to recover from this one! The last book in The Infernal Devices Trilogy lands in March and i'm pretty sure it's going to break my heart! This series has been amazing from the very start and i'm excited yet very anxious to see how it all ends - i'm definitely going to need the tissues for this one!
Can we just take a moment to talk about all the book-to-film adaptations we have coming out this year? Warm Bodies, Beautiful Creatures, The Host and, of course, City of Bones. Personally, i'm more excited for City of Bones because The Mortal Instruments is hands down one of my favourite series and I just can't wait to see it come to life on screen!
So what book are you looking forward to most this year? And what about the film adaptations? Let me know!
