Top 10 on Tuesday — top 10 anticipated books of 2013

A weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, this week’s top 10 theme asks:

What books are you most anticipating in 2013?

In no specific order, the first 10 11 I could think of based on my GoodReads to-be-read list…

  1. Splintered by A.G. Howard
    • Alice in Wonderland, updated? Yes, please!
  2. Poison by Bridget Zinn
    • Is it weird that a book about a teenage assassin sounds appealing? Maybe it’s the pig on the cover.
  3. Clockwork Princess (Infernal Devices)  by Cassandra Clare
    • The conclusion to a great story, can’t wait!
  4. Prodigy: A Legend Novel by Marie Lu
    • Enjoyed the first, sounds like the second is even better.
  5. Untold by Sarah Rees Brennan
    • This one can’t come fast enough: the anticipation after the cliffhanger in book 1. Argh!
  6. The Archived by Victoria Schwab
    • a library, but creepy!
  7. Dracomachia by Rachel Hartman
    • I love books about dragons, and the first in this series was fabulous. Plus, the main character is a musician!
  8. Requiem (Delirium) by Lauren Oliver
    • Book 3, and the conclusion! I held out on reading book 2, and it was worth the wait.
  9. The Human Division by John Scalzi
    • I enjoy Scalzi’s sense of humor, and would read just about anything he wrote.
  10. Midnight Blue-Light Special: An Incryptid Novel by Seanan McGuire
    • Enjoyed the first in this series immensely. Awesome heroine, awesome world-building.
  11. Without a Summer by Mary Robinette Kowal
    • Fine. I can’t count. Well, that’s not true. I was perusing the list and realized that I had at least 10 others to put on the list, so be grateful I’m going to just stop at 11. This is book 3 in a series that has a fascinating magic system. Also, I enjoy the author’s blog, as well as the podcast she does with some other great authors. (Writing Excuses).

    There are a lot of good looking books on here. I really need to start reading some Cassandra Clare books, I’ve heard they’re good.
