Most Anticipated books of 2013

Yeah, this is basically a month late, but better late than never! I've been looking forward to 2013 for a multitude of reasons, but the following lists of books are basically why I'm already in love with this year. So anyway, I now present to you, the OFFICIAL LIST(S)!

Be sure to keep an eye out on the blog because you can bet I will be reading/reviewing every one of these (or trying to, at least) and featuring them on here. Also, there may be giveaways, too! I know we all love giveaways.

Debuts of '13

Nantucket Blue by Leila Howland
Insomnia by JR Johansson

Contemps of '13
The Moon and More by Sarah Dessen

The Retribution of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin

What are you most looking forward to this year? Anything besides books? Let me know!


  1. Thanks for mentioning Nantucket Blue, Brie!! I can't wait to read the others you listed as well!

  2. Oh my goodness! I love this list! Definitely bookmarking it so I can keep coming back to it throughout the year! Seriously almost all of these I want to read! You're so awesome Briana! Have a great weekend! :)

    1. Yay! This is going to mostly serve as a shopping list for me, referencing the books I need to buy throughout the year, so I'm glad someone else finds it useful!

      And right back at ya, though mine will be filled with nothing other than homework duty. Sigh. Gotta love the start of a new semester.


I love comments and read each and every one of them. They make me happy. SO GIVE MEH YOUR THOUGHTS!
