Top Ten Most Anticipated Books For 2013
Hosted by The Broke and the Bookish

For today our task is to list top ten most anticipated books for 2013. I'm gonna be self-centered and assume that those are the books I am most excited about and not some genreal public opinion. LOL


My first reaction when I read this topic was: Only 10?!? It's not possible to narrow my list so much! Even if I pick just one genre it would again be much more than ten. But after much grumbling, deleting, shuffling, removing, adding, sighing etc. here is...


My Top Ten Most Anticipated Books For 2013:

  1. Dracomachia (Seraphina #2) by Rachel Hartman Seraphina was such surprise. I did not expect much when I started reading Seraphina and Rachel Hartman blew me away with original representation of dragon lore. I can't wait to learn more about Dracomachia (style of fighting against dragons).
  2. Steelheart by Brandon Sanderson Brandon Sanderson is my favorite author right now, so I am excited about all of his books, no matter whether they are old or new.
  3. Scarlet (Lunar Chronicles #2) by Marissa Meyer It's not a secret that I have a weak spot for fairy-tales. Cinder was very original and I can't wait to read how Red Riding Hood will fit into a story.
  4. The Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman This book was already my WOW pick. I love Neil Gaiman's style of writing and can't wait to read it.
  5. Pantomime by Laura Lam The worst part is - I have an ARCfor this book. But I am trying to save it for 2013 Debut Author Challenge.

  7. The Queen Is Dead (The Immortal Empire #2) by Kate Locke Another great surprise in 2012 was God Save the Queen - it was very entertaining read. I can't wait to read the sequel!
  8. Emilie and the Hollow World by Martha Wells I just recently started reading books by Martha Wells and I can tell you - boy that woman sure has a great imagination. This will be good - believe me.
  9. Homeland (Little Brother #2) by Cory Doctorow If this book makes me think and feel at least 50% of what Little Brother did, I would be satisfied.
  10. Doctor Sleep (The Shining #2) by Stephen King The Shining is one of the best horror novels Stephen King wrote. I can't wait to read the sequel where Danny is all grown up.
  11. The Mad Scientist's Guide to World Domination I don't want to dominate the world but getting the upper hand on my tbr would be great. I hope there will be some good advice here. :)

  2. Woha really interesting list. I'm currently reading Seraphina so I guess that the second book from that series would be on my list too. Also I still haven't read Cinder (I know shame on me) but I really hope that I'll soon! :)
    Thanks for stopping by :)

    1. I hope you are enjoying Seraphina as much as I did. :) And as for Cinder... it is a little bit specific/weird but I liked it. Hope you will to when you start reading it.

  5. Nice list! I haven't started Seraphina yet (it's on my shelf) -- glad to hear you like it so much! The Mad Scientist anthology should be really good (new Diana Gabaldon story!), and -- yippee -- a new Stephen King to look forward to! Thanks for stopping by my blog.

  7. I didn't even think about Drachomachia when I was making my list, which makes me sad. I totally loved Seraphina, and I really want to find out what they're going to do after what happened in the first book!

    1. You got your lucky paws on Scarlet ARC. I would say I'm jealous, but my review pile is SO big I probably would not have time to read it before January anyway. :D
