Top Ten Books Daisy's Pining for in 2013!


2013 is almost upon us and this particular Top Ten Tuesday is about all those books you are anticipating being released in 2013 that you just can't wait to get your hands on! I just keep adding them to my TBR list and am already trying to budgetize some into my spending plan (or who am I kidding, there is no spending plan, just spending).
So without further ado: the Top Ten books I'm most pining for to be released in 2013!

The Debuts


Taken by Erin Bowman: because a world wherein men dissapear when they turn 18 sounds endlessly fascinating! Also, I love the cover!

Pretty Girl-13 by Liz Coley: it sounds SO CREEPY!

Strands of Bronze and Gold by Jane Nickerson: Bluebeard retold! I was SO scared of this particular fairytale when I was a kid, I didn't sleep for DAYS after my mom read it to me...

Level 2 by Lenore Appelhans: because it sounds fabulous and Lenore is an awesome person and I've heard REALLY good things about it already! Afterlife struggles, YES!

The Cadet of Tildor by Alex Lidell: because I love both Tamora Pierce and George R.R. Martin and it's pitched as a combination of these two amazing writers! Also, I'm down for any epic fantasy.

Dualed by Elsie Chapman: because I can think of nothing scarier and twisted than having a genetic alternate and having to kill said alternate to stay alive yourself.

The Daisy Needs Her Romance Fix


Isla and the Happily Ever After by Stephanie Perkins: EEE! It finally has a release date!! I LOVED Anna and the French Kiss and I'm betting this one will be on a lot of lists ;)

One Good Earl Deserves a Lover by Sarah MacLean: because I LOVE Sarah MacLean's historical romances!! And because I already know the main character, Pippa, is going to be awesome!

The Cute Contemporary


Going Vintage by Lindsay Leavitt: because I absolutely LOVED her Princess for Hire series and this one sounds really cute as well and the cover is something I need on my shelves!

The EEE! New Series!


Mind Games by Kiersten White: because it's a psychological thriller and it sounds creepy and it has two sisters in it! And the cover is gorgeous!

The Archived by Victoria Schwab: because I loved The Near Witch and "Imagine a place where the dead rest on shelves like books." YES!

And because you didn't really think I could actually manage to keep it to 20, I'm having a shadow list with all the sequels I'm pining for on my personal blog Between the Pages.

Now tell me what's on your list and what I should add to my TBR list besides these ones!

  1. Great list! I've never heard of these books but many of them sound interesting, am going to have to check them out. Thanks for sharing this =)

  2. How are there so many here I haven't heard of? I am the biggest proponent for wanting to give a physical gift instead of a gift card for Christmas, but I really should be asking for gift cards. 2013 is going to be the year I go broke.

    1. Lol! Yeah, I'm already worrying about how I'm going to afford them all and how I'll fit them into my apartment...

  3. Dualed is on my list too, it sounds SO good. I totally forgot about Level 2 though that looks really interesting too. Ahhh so many good books to look forward to it's so hard to wait.

  4. I've only done a handful of top ten Tuesdays, but I have to tell you, this is my favorite one yet. I had so much fun making it! Daisy, I love how you picked several debuts. I wish I had chosen more! I love your cute contemporary section and am also desperately waiting for Isla and the happily ever after! Good job :)

  6. How did I forget Taken?? The Cadet of Tildor looks really good. Isla and The Archived are on my list, too.

    ReplyDelete
  7. I totally forgot to put The Cadet of Tildor on my list and it looks SO GOOD!

  8. Does a person who does NOT want to read Isla and the Happily Ever After even exist??? and this coming from a person who didn't even love Lola. Mind Games does have one of the best covers evaaar and it sounds even as good as the cover looks!

    p.s. I submitted my link twice. oppps //:

    1. Haha, no probably not ;)
      The cover of Mind Games is so gorgeous! I love when I get all excited over a cover and even better when the story lives up to that promise!

  9. Our lists are completely different, although you have some on the list that I will most definitely be reading, Level 2 for instance. I love this question. I am looking forward to discovering some upcoming releases. Thanks for hosting.

  19. I hadn't heard of Taken. That does sound fascinating! I love the idea of men disappearing when they turn 18! And I am dying to read LEVEL 2 and MIND GAMES and THE ARCHIVED. They are totally books to pine for! And when I am much more awake tomorrow I can't wait to check out your shadow list on the blog!

    Your list also reminds me I have to start reading Stephanie Perkins' books!

    Great choices Daisy!

  28. I had a lot of fun putting my list together... and I couldn't keep it to 10 either, but most of my extras aren't actually scheduled yet, so they may not make it into a 2013 release (like the next Patrick Rothfuss and the next Deborah Harkness.)

    1. Oh, I'd KILL for the next book in the Kingkiller Chronicles! I will drop everything to read it when it finally gets released...

  29. This is my first Top Ten Tuesday, I enjoyed trying to narrow it down to just 10 books (my list could have gone on for quite a bit longer, lol). Now I'm off to check out everyone else's lists and see what more I can add to my shelves...

  33. AHH Daisy, what an amazing list! YOU WILL LOVE THE CADET OF TILDOR. I started it last night and I'm about half way through and I'm really digging it - really reminds me of Tamora Pierce, but still fresh and original! And I am so with you on Going Vintage and Isla & the Happily Ever After! And Mind Games! And The Archived IS SO GOOD.

  51. This one was really hard for me--I don't keep track of book release dates for the most part. I had to go dig, and then I could only come up with 5, so I just finished off the list with 5 books I'd *like* to see published in 2013. :)

    1. Interesting spin :) Goodreads helps me keep track of them, else I'd be lost as well ;)

  52. Thanks for this top ten! I found out about a lot of fun picture books coming out next year. I mean how can you go wrong with a picture book titled: No-Bot, the Robot with No Bottom? You just can't. :) There were so many it was, as always, hard to choose!

  55. I didn't play this week...I don't know what's coming down the pike enough to have a list! Looks like there are a ton of blogs I will have to look at to load up my 2013! I do love Stephanie Perkins and Kiersten White, so good know they are coming out. Need to pay more attention. That will be my New Year's Resolution.

    ReplyDelete
  56. Great list! I had the chance to read both Level 2 and Dualed (both of which I'm excited about!) Also, I'm looking forward to Just One Day and Isla.

  57. Dualed sounds like a nail-bitter to me. I'm hoping to get my hands on that soon!

    ReplyDelete
  58. Ohh I'll check out some of those ones in your list because I've haven't seen them before. I don't know many books that are coming out in 2013 but looking through these I'll soon have plenty :)

  63. Thanks for so many choices, I am seriously digging anything contemporary right now! Also, I haven't read Anna and the French Kiss yet, but I really want to, everyone is just raving about it. I also have The Near Witch on my shelf, and it wasn't on my priority list to read, but it is now! Thanks :D

  68. Taken & Mind Games are on my list! They sound really good, although Mind Games didn't make the top 10 list. I'll have to check out some of the other books you mentioned :)
