Top Ten Tuesday is an original weekly feature hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Combining both a passion for all things bookish with an obsessive love of list-making, this rad meme was born. This week’s topic is Top Ten Books I Resolve to Read in 2013.
First things first-- HAPPY NEW YEAR! What better way to ring in 2013 than with a good old fashioned hangover and a list of great new books to read?! Okay, maybe not so much the hangover part but I'm all over the sweet reads. I've decided to dedicate much of my 2013 to playing catch-up with all the books I should have read previously so here are some that top my list. Just, please try not to gasp in shock and horror, mmk?
Warm Bodies by Isaac Marion - This is the #1 movie on my "To Watch" list, so it makes sense that the book is also at the very top of my TBR list.
Just One Day by Gayle Forman - Many of my most trusted blogger friends have showered this book with accolades, plus it sort of reminds me of a personal experience, so I'm really excited for it's upcoming release.
The Lover's Dictionary by David Levithan - I heart David Levithan (if you couldn't tell by my posts here, here and here). Suffice it to say, I'm ready to devour anything and everything he's ever written. This book tops the list though because it's such a unique way to tell a story!
The Map of Time by Felix Palma - I picked this book up in the airport at the start of the summer and, unfortunately, it became lost in the sea of new (to me) releases. I still love the concept and will be making a more concerted effort to read it, like, ASAP!
The Death Cure by James Dashner - I enjoyed Dashner's debut, The Maze Runner, and though I wasn't as thrilled with his follow-up I still really want to finish out the series. I need to know what happens to my beloved Minho!
The Last Unicorn by Peter S. Beagle - This is one of those books that falls under the category of "oldies but goodies." Also, I've been craving a good fantasy and I have a feeling this book will fulfill that.
The Book Thief by Markus Zusak - I know what you're thinking and I know. There are no excuses for why I haven't read this so let's just move on.
Cinder by Marissa Meyer - I do love fairy tale re-tellings, especially ones that involve cyborgs, forbidden love and intergalactic battles.
The Monstrumologist by Rick Yancey - Monsters! YES!
The Paris Wife by Paula McLain - This book has been on my radar for awhile now. I'm really trying to branch out and read a variety of genres other than YA and I think this is a great option in historical fiction.
*Note: I plan to read all ten of these books for the Books, Bones & Buffy 2013 Catch-Up Reading Challenge. Just click on the link on my side-bar to sign up and join in!
