Top Ten Books I Resolve To Read In 2013

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature created by The Broke and the Bookish. Every Tuesday has another topic and different bloggers give their top ten. I love making lists, so here's mine for this week!

I hope 2013 brings you a lot of happiness! 

This week topic is 

Top Ten Books I Resolve To Read In 2013

A Top Ten is never going to be enough for all the books I resolve to read this year! My TBR pile of physical books is almost falling over, and that doesn't even include all the books on my ereader! If I look at my Goodreads shelf I have 66 owned books that I still have to read. For me that's huge and it scares me a little. Especially since I really want to read them all now! 
And this is beside all the books on my wish list and all the amazing books that will be published this year! 

TBR pile books

Legend (Legend, #1)Obsidian (Lux, #1)Defiance (Defiance, #1)

The Perks of Being a WallflowerThe Fault in Our Stars

1. Legend (Legend #1) by Marie Lu
It goes for all the books on this list that I've heard amazing things about them! I discovered Legend way too late. I walked into the bookstore a couple weeks ago and read the synopsis for the very first time and was sold! I'm so childish to postpone reading it, because I want to include it in my favorite list for 2013. I'm a bit crazy sometimes.

2. Obsidian (Lux #1) by Jennifer L. Armentrout
I'm almost ashamed to admit I haven't read this one yet. Everyone is so enthusiastic about it. And maybe that made me a bit afraid, what if I don't like it?

3. Defiance (Defiance #1) by C.J. Redwine
I've a lot of books I want to read and that's also the reason why a lot of other books are getting lower and lower on my TBR pile. But I'm determined to read this very soon! 

4. The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky
I saw the movie earlier this year and ordered the book right away. Reading this is high on my to-do list!

5. The Fault in Our Stars by John Green
I bought this months ago, but I'm afraid to start reading. I know it will bring a lot of tears and I want to be alone when that happens! So give me a couple days and I will read this and have the time to get myself back together!

Wish List Books

The Statistical Probability of Love at First SightAnna and the French KissThe Unbecoming of Mara Dyer (Mara Dyer, #1)
Daughter of Smoke & Bone (Daughter of Smoke & Bone, #1)What's Left of Me (The Hybrid Chronicles, #1)

1. The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight by Jennifer E. Smith
I need more contemporary in my life! I downloaded the preview of this book, read it and fell in love with it. Unfortunately there were some review books I had to read first, but I'll buy and read this one soon!

2. Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins
I don't know how many times I've said I would read this book soon. It's becoming embarrassing. In 2013 I will!

3. The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer (Mara Dyer #1) by Michelle Hodkins
This book is also very high on my wish list! In 2013 I'll finally start this series!

4. Daughter of Smoke and Bone (Daughter of Smoke and Bone #1) by Laini Taylor 
I've been in love with this cover ever since I first saw it. I don't know why I haven't bought and read this one yet. It's always high on my wish list, but somehow never high enough. 2013 will be the year I'll read this one!

5. What's Left of Me (The Hybrid Chronicles #1) by Kat Zhang
Again an amazing cover and a very promising synopsis. I hope to get my hands on it soon!

What's your Top Ten? Any books on my list I should read right away?


  1. Perks and The Fault in Our Stars are good reads, and I really LOVED Anna and the French Kiss! The Statistical Probability is on my list too!

    My TBR Pile

  2. I'm pretty sure I need to read all of the books you listed above except The Fault in Our Stars. But that book deserves multiple re-reads, so I guess it does go back into the TBR pile!

    My List

  3. Do not be afraid. Read Fault in Our Stars. ;->

    Here's my list of Ten Books I Resolve to Read in 2013. I hope you will stop by! And Happy New Year!

  4. Ha! These are all of my TBR list too. In fact several of these were in my 12 books I should have read in 2012 post that I posted last week. :)

    I bought Obsidian so I should hopefully be getting to it soon. Happy New Years and happy reading!

    Here are the books I resolve to read

  5. Yay for TFiOS, Anna, The Perks and The Statistical Probability! They are SO GOOD! And I can't wait to read Obsidian, Daughter of Smoke and Bone, Mara Dyer, What's Left of Me, Legend and Defiance myself... um, I realized I just mentioned ALL THE BOOKS on your list. Love your taste in books haha!

  6. Great picks, Perks are AMAZING!!! One of my all time favorites :)

    Happy new year!

  7. Helene, a lot of the books on your list are on my TBR list, too. I particularly want to read Obsidian, it seems like the whole world has already read it, so it must be really good. I only read The Perks Of Being A Wallflower from your list, and it's a great book, you shouldn't miss it.

  8. What's Left of Me sounds amazing. I hope to read it one day...

  9. Aweome list! I hope you like Defaince more then me. I also want to see that Obsidian is a fantastic book. :)

  10. I can't wait to read Obsidian either! The Fault in Our Stars is amazing, and I really enjoyed Legend, so I hope you enjoy those two!

  11. I have read Obsidian and really liked it, Onyx though wasn't as good. I own what's left of me and can't wait to read it! I also own Daughter of smoke and bone and hope to read it for one of my goodreads groups monthly read this month.

    1. Anoeska just read the third book (opal?) and completely killed me by saying it's not that good :O

    2. And it killed me cause I've been looking forward to it :p and I usually agree with her likes/dislikes.. so this sucks cause I had high hopes for this series!

    3. I am sorry! I did like the ending though. And maybe you'll totally disagree with me:)

    4. Good you both loved Obsidian! I'm just going to start that one and see how it goes with the other two :)

  12. The Perks of Being a Wallflower was so good! So was The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer. Great list!

  13. Obsidian, TSPOLAFS and Anna and the French Kiss are wonderful. I love them all.

    TFIOS is amazing, but such a tearjerker. Be prepared.

    I also want to read Legend. I didn't add it to my list, but it is definitely something I hope to read this year.

    Good luck on your reading resolutions.

    Happy New Year :)

  14. The Fault in Our Stars, Legend, Obsidian, and Anna & the French Kiss are all amazing! Good luck with your list!

  15. I have to say.. the statistical was a bit.. meh? Not that good in my opinion, so don't spend too much money on it! Buy it when it's for sale or something haha ;)
    Obsidian on the other hand.. god.. Daemon.. he's going to kill you. I pity your boyfriend! And what's left of me is on my wishlist too!

  16. Wow, that's a lot of great books! I have Legend, Unbecoming and Defiance in my TBR list as well. I've read Statistical, Daughter of Smoke, Anna and love them all. My favorite though is The Fault in Our Stars, you should start there ;)
