Once again, I’m participating in The Broke and the Bookish’s Top Ten Tuesday, in which various bloggers voice their top ten list on a particular topic. And what’s a better topic for New Year’s day than the top ten books I resolve to read in 2013?
1. Jane Eyre
I WILL finish this book this year! Every time I start it, I love it, but something happens(normally, school starts), and all I want is light reading. 2013 will be the year I finish Jane Eyre.
2. the third book in the Divergent trilogy
I’m pre-ordering this one. I’ve never pre-ordered a book before, but I am so excited for this book that isn’t even named yet! I don’t have to resolve to read this book, because it’s probably the book I’m looking forward to the most in all of 2013.
3. The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest
For two reasons: 1)I read the first two books in the trilogy and I want to know what happens, and 2) I rashly spent $20 on the hardcover copy of this book.
4. Any book by John Green
I’ve never read John Green. I wish to remedy this fact. (I won’t be reading the Fault in our Stars, though. I’m not ready for a book in which cancer plays a large part). I’m thinking Paper Towns, but I might change my mind to Looking for Alaska(I welcome suggestions, by the way!)
5. Through the Ever Night
I wasn’t quite as impressed with Under the Never Sky as I wanted to be, but I did enjoy the first book, and this is a series I want to finish. Since the first book was enjoyable, but not overwhelmingly so, I feel this might be one of those series I just forget to come back to, and I don’t want that to happen, so it’s a bookish resolution this year.
Looks like today’s a top five! There are other books I hope to read this year, of course, but these are the ones that I would say I’m absolutely resolved to read.
