Top 10 Tuesday #52

Hosted by the girls at The Broke and The Bookish, this weeks query is:  Anticipated Books of 2013.

1. Requiem by Lauren Oliver – I’ve been waiting on this book for a LONG time.  Ms Oliver’s cliffhanger endings are going to give me a heart attack.

2.  Just One Day by Gayle Forman – This was an automatic TBR choice but recently our buddy Sandie @ Teen Lit Rocks told us is was great.  That’s a given but it just makes me want to read it even more. 🙂

3.  This is What Happy Looks Like by Jennifer E Smith – Oh you heartwarming book you!  The title just makes me smile.  CANNOT WAIT.

4.  Gates of Paradise by Melissa de la Cruz – It’s the end.  I don’t know what I’m going to do!!

5.  The Murmurings by Carly Anne West – This one sounds creepy and I don’t read enough of those types so I’m really looking forward to this one as well.

6.  Etiquette & Espionage by Gail Carriger – I love this idea and can’t wait to read it.

7.  Pivot Point by Kasie West – There are so many new series starting in 2013!!  I love starting a new series and this one looks great.

8.  OCD, The Dude, and Me by Lauren Roedy Vaughn – This one looks sooooo funny!  I need a good LOL book.

9.  Clockwork Princess by Cassandra Clare – I need to know!!!  Will or Jem?  Please Will I can’t take this, it’s not fair!!!

And to add one Adult book . . .

10.  Lover at Last by J. R. Ward – Book 11 in the BDB series and I CANNOT WAIT.  Finally Qhuinn’s book!  If you haven’t started this series you should!  It’s a bit graphic at times (ok A LOT of the time) but I love the stories and I love the characters.  I’d love to go back and reread these one day.


1.  Clockwork Princess by Cassandra Clare — possibly one of my absolute favorite series ever.

2.  Just One Day by Gayle Forman — I am so jealous of those who have advanced copies.  I would give my left thumb for one.

3.  Rumor Has It by Jill Shalvis — Book 4 in the Animal Magnetism series, this one is about a girl in love with her best friends’ brother and it’s one of my favorite tropes.

4.  The Best Man by Kristan Higgins — Her books are always at the top of my TBR list.  This one is actually part of a new series.

5.  Bare it All, Getting Rowdy, and Dash by Lori Foster — All part of her newest series, Love Undercover, they’re all coming out next year.

6.  It Had to be You, Always on My Mind, and Once in a Lifetime by Jill Shalvis —  The next three books in the Lucky Harbor series.

7.  Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell — A new favorite author.  Eleanor and Park also comes out next year, but I actually have the capability to read it this year, so it’s not on the list, but still highly anticipated.

8.  The Last Word by Lisa Lutz — The sixth Spellman novel, I read the first five back to back and I really want there to be a happy ending for my girl, Izzy.

9.  The Sum of All Kisses by Julia Quinn — The final book in the Smythe-Smith series, this one focuses on two secondary characters from the last two books.  I am especially interested in getting to know Hugh.

10.  Game by Barry Lyga — The second book about Jasper Dent, the son/heir to a serial killer.  I can’t wait to dig deeper into his story.

Obviously, there are tons more books that Maggie and I are anticipating.  This is just a taste of all the good things to come next year.

    Ugh! I forgot Just One Day! Thank the good Lord I have you two to remind me of all the books I’m supposed to be reading! You know what else slipped my mind? Isla and The Happily Ever After. OMG, I am DYING for Requiem and Clockwork Princess though. Alex! Will!

      I’m so glad I have you Tee!!! D is all about Jem. ~M

      • Dixie November 27, 2012 at 11:34 am

        that is not true. I love Will, I just don’t hate Jem because Tess has feelings for him, too.

      • Gone Pecan November 27, 2012 at 12:46 pm

        This love triangle is crap to me. Follow your heart not this “honor” stuff, Jem deserves better than to think he won. I don’t hate Jem but you’ve got to pick a team! ~M

      • Dixie November 27, 2012 at 1:04 pm

        no I don’t.

    Just One Day, YES!! I cannot wait! Maggie, you and I have a lot of the same books! Lover at Last is going to be so dang good, I just know it!!

    Dixie, I need to add most of yours to my wishlist! I love Jill Shalvis, Kristan Higgins, and Lori Foster!

      I noticed that as well. I can’t wait for Love at Last. I hope it’s even longer than the 600+ pages from the last one~ M

      I know, they never disappoint.

    WHERE TO START?!? So many of these books are on my TBR! Well, Just One Day is AWESOME! OCD, The Dude & Me! I just got that in the mail (after never having heard about it) and now I’m SUPER excited about it! Looks hilar!

      You must tell me about OCD~! M

    These are wonderful lists! A few overlap onto my list, and a few have just been added to my ever-growing TBR list. I had no idea until today that Jennifer E. Smith had a new book coming out!

      I have added sooo many books to my tbr at Goodreads today.

      hey, Katie, you won the Emily Giffin book. email us @ with your address

      • Katie November 27, 2012 at 5:19 pm

        Oh, how exciting!

    Can you believe I have only read City of Bones!? What kind of book blogger am I!? I hear such good things about Clockwork Princess I might need to just read this series first…would that be a terrible move?

    • Dixie November 27, 2012 at 9:27 pm Reply

      no. you know what, I would read the Infernal devices first because it’s set two hundred years before and you will get to know the families of the people in the Mortal Instruments. Personally, I love both. BUT I think I like ID better.

    I spy Julia Quinn up there – and that makes me SO HAPPY. I love Julia Quinn’s books!

    Also, Just One Day is a book I TOTALLY want to read.

    • Dixie November 28, 2012 at 12:35 pm Reply

      Julia Quinn makes me happy. So does Gayle Forman, for that matter 🙂

  8. Quinn November 28, 2012 at 6:49 pm Reply

    Maggie – I am so excited for This is What Happy Looks Like. It made it on my list too!

    Dixie – I really like Lori Foster, but haven’t been as into her newer series. Some of my favorites are Just a Hint, Clint (even if his name is Clint!) and Too Much Temptation. And heck yea, Julia Quinn. She makes me happy, too!

    • Dixie November 28, 2012 at 7:14 pm Reply

      her newer series are great. I really like the sbc fighting series, starting with causing havoc.

    The cover for Clockwork Princess is really beautiful. I love it.

    • Dixie November 28, 2012 at 7:13 pm Reply

      I know, right? can you tell why both boys are in love with her?
