Top Ten Books I Resolve To Read In 2013

There are a TON of books I resolve to read in 2013…but we’ll see if it happens. I’m starting strong by saying I’ll read 63 books next year. Pushing it just a little further than last year.

And how about that. The first post and first Top Ten Tuesday is the first day of 2013. Pretty darn cool.

Top Ten Books I Resolve to Read in 2013

the host stephenie meyer books I resolve to read in 2013

1The Host by Stephenie Meyer– With the upcoming movie, I just have to read this book. I’ve been mentally avoiding it for awhile, but I heard it actually is pretty good.

2Anything by John Green– Bloggers will kill me for this one. It’s like a young adult right of passage to read John Green. Get it together, self!

3Legend by Marie Lu– I’ve been wanting to read Legend for so long, but things (cough other books) keep getting in the way.

4Every Day by David Leviathan– This book almost sounds like too much, you know? Will my mind be able to handle it?!

6The Giver by Lois Lowry– As basically the father of dystopian books, I have to read the Giver this year. HAVE TO.

7Dustlands #3 by Moira Young— I say that I resolve to read this book because after Rebel Heart, it will be tough to pick up the final book in this series. Agh, Young, you kill me!

8Another zombie book— I have been reluctant to try again because of a couple bad experiences. Right now, I’m reading Warm Bodies…so we’ll see how that goes.

9What’s Left of Me by Kat Zhang– Another book that totally slipped away from me last year. I want to read it so badly, though.

10Carnival of Souls by Melissa Marr – Ditto to #9. I’ve actually never read anything by her either.

What books do you REFUSE to resolve to read in 2013??

    I haven’t read The Host either even though people say it’s 10x better than Twilight. The trailer doesn’t look half bad though tbh!

    Books I refuse to read in 2013? Hmm. Unless it’s a book already in an on going series, I’m going to say books with love triangles and dystopian books (because they’re all morphing into the same book).

    I hope to read more John Green in 2013, too.

    Here’s my list of Ten Books I Resolve to Read in 2013. I hope you will stop by! And Happy New Year!

  • I just read my first John Green books in 2012. I read Paper Towns and TFIOS. I really liked them both. I still need to read An Abundance of Katherines and Looking for Alaska, though.

    Happy New Year!

    I read The Host a while ago. I remember likely it but I remember thinking she could have cut a 100 pages from it. I still liked it.

    The rest I’m still dying to read as well. Thanks for sharing.

    Happy New Years and happy reading!

    Need to reread The Host & looking forward to getting to Everyday & The Giver too. Great list!

    I loved Legend so I hope you get to that soon. And I really liked Warm Bodies, so hope you’re enjoying it. If you haven’t tried Feed by Mira Grant – that’s a pretty good zombie book too, without being too gross (and it’s about bloggers).

  • It is time for the John Green, my friend.

    Also – I’m with you on The Host! It was the kindle daily deal the other day too so SCORE.

  • The Host by Stephenie Meyer-This is on my 2013 reading list too: The Host by Stephenie Meyer-

  • Samantha

    Legend was by far in my top five from last year! (Up near Throne of Glass and Shadow and Bone!!)

  • Jen

    Glad to hear I’m not the only one who hasn’t had a chance to read Legend yet. And yes you definitely have to read some John Green!!

  • Anne

    Lots of good ones here! Although I will say, if you’ve never read anything by Melissa Marr, I wouldn’t suggest starting with Carnival of Souls – personally, I think her Wicked Lovely series was a little better. Carnival of Souls may turn out just as good, but with that ending I wouldn’t want to read it until the next one is out, you know what I mean? Anyway, just my two cents worth 🙂
