Top Ten Anticipated Books of 2013
1) Splintered: I've been looking forward to this book for such a long time. It's kind of a retelling of Alice in Wonderland but in modern day. I love retellings but this book also sounds really unique because the main character can talk to bugs. I think that would be such a cool superpower!
2) The Tiger's Dream: This is the fifth book in a series I've been with since the beginning. The fourth book was supposed to be the final one, which made me really sad. Then the author decided that she might write another one. Even though it's not certain, I feel like putting it on the list will make it happen. Which makes no sense...
Requiem: This is the third book in one of the most amazing series I've ever read. It's a dystopian series about a girl learning to stand up for herself and what she believes in. If you haven't read any of these books yet, I highly suggest you read them.
The Indigo Spell: I know, I know. Another series. But I love my series. And this is one I'm completely addicted to. I've been with these books since Vampire Academy which was a series before this one. So if you combine all the books, this will be the ninth one.
The Elite: This book is the sequel to a book that honestly wasn't the best book. It had a lot of flaws. For some reason, I really enjoyed it. I think it was one of those books that you read soley for entertainment. It had prince and princesses, castles, drama, and more.
The Archived: This book had a chilling premise. It's about a girl that has such a hard life she knows firsthand how useful fear is to stay alive. The main character sounds intriguing and the plot unique. I don't think I've ever read anything nearly like this.
Shadowlands: I was drawn to this book by it's cover. It's so creepy but so captivating. Then I read the summary and I was like wow, I need this book! It deals with a girl who survived imminent death despite the odds. And she might have to do it again. For some reason, the plot just called out to me. It seems like a story I would want to write.
The Lives We Lost: This is the sequel to The Way We Fall. The way we fall was an apocalyptic story. It was also so much more than that. It was an emotion provoking novel that made me think hard about life in general and lives. It ended with unanswered questions and the next book has a quest in in, which could get interesting.
Dark Triumph: This is the sequel to His Fair Assassin. The first book had a strong heroine and although, this book has a different heroine, she sounds equally strong. Both characters are assassins trained by nuns. What more could you want in a book?
Soulbroken: This is the sequel to Soulbound, one of the greatest books I've ever read. I fell completely in love with Soulbound. The main character was a tougher heroine than anyone I've ever met and most book characters. She stood up for herself despite the odds against her and threw away her happiness to protect her family. This book was packed with nonstop action, and I hope the next one will be just as good!
Before I wrote this list, I thought I'd have a hard time thinking of all ten books. That wasn't the case. I think I could easily make a list of fifty books I'm looking forward to. There's apparently no shortage of good books coming out next year!
