Top Ten Books I Want of 2013

Yeah...I was going to publish this next Wednesday, but everyone else was doing it today. So...Extended Waiting on... Saturday! Possibly featuring past WoW picks, because I want to feature them again. Links lead to Goodreads!

Title: The Glass Republic
Author: Tom Pollock
Release Date: 1 August
Why I want it: I loved the London that Tom created and just can't wait to go back to it.

Title: Level 2
Author: Lenore Appelhans
Release Date: 15 January
Why I want it: Cool concept and refreshing take on the afterlife.

Title: The Program
Author: Suzanne Young
Release Date: 30 April
Why I want it: It's an interesting concept and the topic interests me.

Title: Inferno
Author: Sherrilyn Kenyon
Release Date: 19 March
Why I want it: I've stuck with Nick throughout his series and the majority of the Dark Hunter one. And it was an epic cliffhanger for Infamous. The title suggests that hell's breaking loose.

Title: Etiquette and Espionage
Author: Gail Carriger
Release Date: 5 February
Why I want it: If it contains anywhere near the amount of sly witty humour and fun as the last two books in the Parasol Protectorate series, it would be amazing.

Title: Clockwork Princess
Author: Cassandra Clare
Release Date: 19 March
Why I want it: Steampunk fantasy/paranormal  with generally awesome characters.  And pretty cover!

Title: Scarlet
Author: Marissa Meyer
Release Date: 5 February
Why I want it:  I love fairy tales. I love steampunk. The first in the series was awesome. Yay.

Title: Call of the Jersey Devil
Author: Aurelio Voltaire
Release Date: 28 May
Why I want it: I love Voltaire's music. The concept of this (New Jersey is the gateway to hell) is highly amusing, even if you don't live there, and I'm generally guessing this'll be facepalmingly funny.

Title: Valkyrie
Author: Kate O Hearn
Release Date: 2 May
Why I want it: I've been telling myself for a long time I'll read some more Norse myths. This isn't exactly one, but it has elements and mythology fiction, I tend to enjoy anyway.

Title: Undone
Author: Cat Clarke
Release Date: 31 January
Why I want it: I loved Cat's other books-and talk from friends has said it's even better. Not sure if this is possible. Must check it out.

Seriously, there's more than ten books I really want coming out in 2013. I really cannot list them all. They'll feature in upcoming WoWs (as long as I remember to do them!). In the meantime though.... *eyes up huge box of books to read*


  1. August seems so far away! The Glass Republic is definitely on my list of must reads for next year.

  2. Etiquette & Espionage and Valkyrie are on my list for 2013, too. Hope you enjoy all of these when they're released. :)

  3. I'm waiting for Tom Pollock's book to come out in paperback but it looks awesome! and a good sign that you want his next one ;) seriously so excited for clockwork princess, I cannot tell you. I really need to read Cat Clarke next year!!

    1. Good idea. The hardback is heavy and not nice to carry around. What is it with authors with initials CC? Awesomeness!

  4. LOL I love how you modified this so you could post with everyone else! ;) But seriously, you have some awesome books on this list, Nina! I'm really excited for The Program. It sounds like a really cool dystopian and I can't wait to see what the author does with it. I'm also superbly excited for Scarlet. I've heard it's even better than Cinder, which makes me really, really excited!

    Fantastic picks, Nina. 2013 is going to be the year I finally go bankrupt from buying all these ah-mazing books! ;)

    1. You've not gone bankrupt already? Hope you enjoy the books too :)

  5. As the author of Call of the Jersey Devil, first of all, let me say, THANKS for listing my book here. Secondly, yes, I can guarantee you that your palm and or nose (or both) will be very sorry from smacking each other all through this book! ; )


  6. Ahem... your palm and nose will be SORE, not sorry. Though I suppose they might be sorry, too. ; )


Thanks for taking time to read this!
Comments are much loved.
