Top Ten Most Anticipated Books for 2013

There are quite a few books that I'm anticipating for 2013, but to help narrow down the list, I'm going to only mention books that have info available now (and then cheat and mention a few that don't). 2013 has some good ones!

The Dollhouse Asylum by Mary Gray: This book doesn't come out until October, but I want it. Badly. Why? The characters have to act as famous tragic literary characters (like Romeo and Juliet) in order to survive an apocalyptic world. I WANT.
Release Date: October 8, 2013

Dead Silence by Kimberly Derting: The Body Finder series is coming to an end! This series hasn't gone on too long, which is great, but I'm also not ready to let it go. And Jay. I'm definitely not done with him.
Release Date: April 16, 2013

Falling For You by Lisa Schroeder: I've read all of Lisa's YA books and loved them all, and I can't wait to get my hands on her latest novel, which I think is her first one not written in verse. 
Release Date: January 1, 2013

The Moon and More by Sarah Dessen: So I'm horrible and still haven't read What Happened to Goodbye, but I love love love Dessen's books and can't wait to add another to my shelf!
Release Date: June 4, 2013

The Elite and The Prince by Kiera Cass: When I first read The Selection, I didn't like it quite as much as I do now. Nevertheless, I'm eager to see what happens in The Elite (Team Maxon!) and to learn more about Maxon in The Prince!
Release Date: March 5, 2013 (The Prince), April 23, 2013 (The Elite)

Unravel Me by Tahereh Mafi: Part of me didn't like the ending of Shatter Me, but I liked the thriller movie-feel of the book, and I'm interested to see what happens in the sequel. Plus, the romance is very, very nice.
Release Date: February 5, 2013

Light by Michael Grant: I'm okay with this series ending; I think it's time. As for the final book, I have no idea what will happen--Grant's good at that. I do know that there will probably be a lot of the what-the-you-know-what moments.
Release Date: April 2, 2013

Gates of Paradise by Melissa de la Cruz: I used to really love this series, but then it diverged into something different and just wasn't the same. While I'm sad that it'll be over, it's time for it to be, and I want to know what's going to happen.
Release Date: January 15, 2013

The Program by Suzanne Young: I just think this sounds suuuper interesting and I've wanted to read it since I first heard about it.
Release Date: April 30, 2013

New Moon: The Graphic Novel, Volume 1 by Stephenie Meyer: Because I'm a twihard and I need this.
Release Date: April 23, 2013

Books That I Need NOW But Fail To Provide Me Info:

Fall of Night and Daylighters by Rachel Caine: The last two books (unless things change, and gosh I hope they do) in the Morganville Vampires series. I love these books HARDCORE, and there's a 99.9% chance that I'll cry my eyes and heart out when this series is over.
Release Date: May 7, 2013 (Fall of Night), November 2013 (Daylighters)

Of Triton by Anna Banks: Of Poseidon was just so fun, and if you read it you know that the ending screams that you need the sequel, like, yesterday.
Release Date: May 28, 2013

Isla and the Happily Ever After by Stephanie Perkins: WHO DOESN'T WANT THIS BOOK?! And also, we should be getting more Etienne. And Cricket! I. Can't. Wait.
Release Date: May 7, 2013

Full Riders by Simone Elkeles: New Simone Elkeles! New Simone Elkeles! New Simone Elkeles!
Release Date: 2013

Of Beast and Beauty by Stacey Jay: Why am I just now hearing about this? I love all things Beauty and the Beast, so I need this book! And it's a completely different retelling, which is so cool.
Release Date: July 23, 2013
