Top Ten Tuesday: Books I Resolve to Read in 2013


Okay fine, I know it's Wednesday today (I think, sort of lost track of the days) but since I was traveling all day yesterday and enjoying San Diego all day the day before, I figured I could post my Tuesday list today, right? Okay great!

So I resolve to read LOTS of books in 2013, but here's ten that simply HAVE to happen:

1. Vanity Fair by William Thackeray: the big classic I hope to accomplish this year

2. Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor: part of last year's Christmas haul and a book I feel so very out of the loop for not reading yet.

3. Fingersmith by Sarah Waters: from THIS year's haul and part of my quest to explore this author more

4. Old Man's War by John Scalzi: for Carl's SciFi Experience, and because I started it and had to take it back to the library and that's just not cool.

5. Crooked Letter Crooked Letter by Tom Franklin: one I actually started, but then never finished. It's time.

6. Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare: I'm thinking this was on my last year's list. Oops. (I looked, it wasn't, but #5 was!)

7. Seraphina by Rachel Hartman: Does it count if I've already started it? :)

8. Wheel of Time books.... I will try to pick this project up, maybe even skip some books? Gasp.

9. Wolf Hall by Hilary Mantel... I've just proposed a read a long with Jessica from The Bluestocking Society. We'll see how THAT goes!

10. The second Outlander book, maybe? Yes?

I'm loving looking over all your posts on books you hope to read this year! Here's to everyone managing them all!

  1. I read 3.5 of the Wheel of Time Books, and I was not impressed. I think Robert Jordan was a sexist cause the women in his books are losers or b#@!*S.

  2. Daughter of Smoke & Bone should be your #1 priority! It's insanely awesome! As is the sequel! Clockwork Angel should be number 2. Just sayin. :) Good luck with your list!

  3. It was hard limiting it to ten wasn't it? So many books we want to read! Although my list doesn't match yours, several on your list are in my TBR pile, including just about your entire list. LOL

    Have a Happy New Year!

  6. I was just thinking today that I should give Wolf Hall a try. And I've been saying for years that I should read the Outlander series. Good luck with your list :)

  8. I LOVED Daughter of Smoke and Bones. It was one of my fave reads from last year. I think I read Vanity Fair also. I read that a lot of book bloggers planning on reading this.

  9. Good luck with Vanity Fair! That has been on my TBR shelf for years, maybe I should join you...

  10. Good luck! I've only read one of these. I keep thinking I need to go on with the Outlander series, but I don't think I could read the second book without re-reading the first and it's looooooonnnnnggg!

  11. Good luck! Wolf Hall makes me swoon with all of it's goodness :) I hope you love it!

  12. Gotta love seeing Old Man's War there on the list! :) Hope you enjoy it when all is said and done. Actually I hope you enjoy it so much you feel compelled to read the rest...not that I'm a rabid fan or anything.

    And of course if you do not, I will completely understand...and only cry for a few days.

  13. I enjoyed Sarah Waters' The Little Stranger, I'd be interested to see what her other books were like. I really enjoyed Wolf Hall too - it wasn't my usual kind of book, but it was very intricate and interesting!
