This Tuesday's theme is...

Top Ten Books I Resolve to Read in 2013

Yeah, yeah, yeah, I know what you're thinking: Are you crazy? How have you not read these books yet?! There's no need to grab your torches and pitchforks--I'm resolving to read these books! And if you happen to think I'm missing something--which I know I am--just tell me! Oh, and Happy New Year!

If I Stay and Where She Went by Gayle Forman: I own both books but have yet to get to them. I've heard they're great--and heart wrenching--and I intend on reading them very, very soon.

Shift and Shine by Jeri Smith-Ready: I still can't believe I haven't finished this series. Never fear--I've ordered the books off Amazon and will read them soon!

Endangered by Eliot Schrefer: I've been wanting to read this book since the moment I heard about it. I own a copy and cannot wait to devour it.

Delirium by Lauren Oliver: I loved Oliver's Before I Fall and have been wanting to read this series, too. I own book one and am waiting for book two, and plan on reading them just before Requiem releases.

Cinder by Marissa Meyer: Marissa is a local author that I've met twice, and I still haven't read Cinder. And it's a fairytale retelling! It's at the top of my TBR list.

The Fault In Our Stars and Looking For Alaska by John Green: Again, I own them. And I'm going to read--no, devour--them.

What Happened to Goodbye by Sarah Dessen: As a huge Dessen fan, it's a crime that I still haven't read this one.

The Lux and Covenant series by Jennifer Armentrout: According to the Twittersphere and Blogosphere, Jennifer's books are kind of a big deal. I'd like to see if I agree.

The Vampire Academy and Bloodlines series by Richelle Mead: Now, I haven't read them. BUT. I own all The Vampire Academy books! That should count for something.

The Mortal Instruments and The Infernal Devices series by Cassandra Clare: *whistles* Don't kill me!

What books do you resolve to read this year? Tell me in the comments!


  1. I have Delirium on my list too!:) The Fault in our Stars is a good read :)

  2. I loved Delirium, What Happened to Goodbye, and If I Stay/Where she Went.

    The rest I'm also dying to read. Thanks.

  3. Omg I absolutely love VA! I have yet to read Bloodlines, though :P Also, if you're going to read the Covenant series, I'd suggest that you read VA first because there are a lot of similarities...

  5. I really hope you enjoy Delirium - I didn't think it would be for me, but because of the reviews I tried it, and ended up loving it! I've started the Vampire Academy series and the Mortal Instruments series, but never finished them!

    Great list!

    My TTT this week

  6. Great list, I loved If I Stay and Where She Went. And Jennifer L. Armentrout's books are on my list as well :)

    Here's my TTT post.

  7. Ahhh so many books that are the same as mine! Haha, I also have The Fault of Our Stars, Cassandra Clare's book, and a Lux books. They all look so fantastic! Great list :)

    Here's my Top Ten!

    Love your blog name! I'm a new follower :)

  8. The Mortal Instruments and The Infernal Devices!!!!! I hope you get to read them! I just love those books so much. Some other really great ones on your list to, like Delirium. Enjoy and Happy New Year! :)

    My Top Ten Tuesday

  9. I loved Delirium & Cinder--two of my favorites books I've read recently. Looking for Alaska is a book I'm determined to read in 2013(well, anything by John Green. I always mean to, I just haven't yet).

  10. I've read the first three Mortal Instruments books. They are good. I have most of the rest of the series, I don't know why I haven't continued... So many books to read, like Delirium!

  11. I really enjoyed Delirium! You have some great titles on your list. :)

  12. So many great books on your list! JLA is awesome, and i really like her Lux series. I haven't read her Covenant series.

    I also want to read If I Stay, but I need to be in just the right mood for something like that.

    Cinder is amazing. I am listening to it right now (via audiobook) and am loving it. I don't really care for science fiction, but I am so glad I gave it a try.

    TFIOS is also a wonderful novel, but such a tearjerker. Be prepared!

    Good luck on your reading resolutions :)

    Here's to 2013!

  13. Oh wow! A bunch of my favorite are on here. I'm surprised you haven't already read a lot of these since they are so hugely popular. I hope when you get the chance to read them that you love them! New follower <3
