My Most Highly Anticipated Book Releases for 2013


As February draws near, I am getting pretty excited for a ridiculous surplus of new book releases.  Some are continuations in a coveted series, others are the first in a brand new series, and a few are even stand-alone titles.  Last year, there were a few titles that I eagerly awaited but mostly I spent the year searching for that great next book, or better yet, book series that would inspire and obsess me. Sadly, I was disappointed with a number of the books I read though I must confess there were a few notable exceptions but that’s for another post. 

And now, finally, here are the books that I hope will thrill and obsess me this year.

(These books are not in any particular order, except for Gail Carriger’s Etiquette & Espionage and Ilona Andrews Magic Rises both of which I am dying to read! Oh yeah, and I separated my list out by YA vs Adult for those of you who don’t read or particularly care to read YA books.)

I’m positive I will be adding to this list in the next few months as new book release dates start to appear on Amazon, so check back for updates as year continues.

 If you have any book suggestions, please feel free to post. 🙂
