Top Ten Most Anticipated Books for 2013

1. Scarlet by Marissa Meyer

I like what I've heard and the bits I've read of Cinder, though I need to read that first.

2. Tarnish by Katherine Longshore

Gilt was one of my favorite reads this past year, though I'm a little more skeptical there's anything new to say about Anne Boleyn.

3 The Painted Girls by Cathy Marie Buchanan

I tend for some reason to like these "story behind the painting" type books.

4 Maya's Notebook by Isabel Allende (English translation)

She's one of my favorite authors, even though I haven't read her in a while.

5 Finding Camlann by Sean Pidgeon

I can't resist Arthurian history, and I'm hoping that I'll finally find a historical thriller I can enjoy. Also, the cover caught my eye.

6. The Aviator's Wife by Melanie Benjamin

I realized I don't know anything about Charles Lindbergh's wife-and it seems there is a lot to know.

There's not anything else coming out that I'm really, really excited about and feel like I have to read. And maybe that's a good thing. I'm more open to new authors, new kinds of writing. Even if 2013 is the rare year where nothing worthy is published, I certainly won't lack for reading material from previous years.

I'm reading Cinder right now (via audiobook). I really don't like sci-fi, but I decided to give this a try. I do love fairytale retellings, and I've heard nothing but amazing things about it. I like it so far, even if it makes me a little uncomfortable. The narrator is wonderful
