Top Ten Books I Resolve To Read In 2013

Happy New Year!  I hope 2012 was great for everyone and that 2013 will be a fantastic, fun-filled year!  This is a great list to start off the year.  There are so many books I want to read and never got to last year, so hopefully this will be the year that I get to at least some of them.

  1. The Rise And Fall Of The Third Reich: A History of Nazi Germany by William Shirer.  I got this one as an audiobook months ago, and while I really want to read, I’m intimidated by the fact that it is 57 HOURS AND 13 MINUTES!  Whether I listen to it, or read it, it’s going to be a big book, but still.  It seems so long.  But it’s been on my to-read list for a long time, so I should probably just listen to it and cross it off the list.
  2. Life And Death Of Anne Boleyn by Eric Ives.  Another one that I’ve wanted to read, but haven’t.  Plus, it would be pretty interesting to read something that is not by Alison Weir- a different perspective would probably be a good idea.
  3. Romance novels.  I have a ton of them on my to-read list, so I’m hoping I can get through a lot of them this year.  Grouping them seems so much easier than listing all of them.
  4. Dear Mr. Potter by Lily Zalon.  It’s letters and pictures by Harry Potter fans, about how much the series has meant to them.  Why is it taking me so long to read this?  The only problem seems to be actually finding a copy, since it appears that it’s no longer in print.  I’ll definitely have  to track this one down…
  5. Manga!  I have a few manga that I really want to read, so this would be a good year to figure out which ones I really like.
  6. Speaking of manga…I need to finish Fruits Basket.  Knowing how it ends is no excuse for not finishing it!
  7. Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver.  This has been sitting on my bookshelf for months, and I still have not read it. I think it’s time to read it.  Before, you know, it starts mocking me or something.
  8. Lola And The Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins.  Because I loved Anna And The French Kiss, and I really need and want to read Lola And The Boy Next Door.  Plus, I checked it out from the library a few days ago, so now I have the perfect excuse to read it!  Not that I needed one in the first place…
  9. Such A Rush by Jennifer Echols.  Because I’ve heard good things about it, and because I think I’d like it.
  10. Here’s another broad one- all the books I keep hearing great things about but never seem to get around to reading.  Like The Daughter Of Smoke And Bone or The Statistical Probability Of Love At First Sight.

  1. Lol. I like your “romance novels” option. I have quite a few that I need to read as well. I used to read them a lot, but for the last year or two I’ve been into teen and children’s books. But I still end up buying them.

    Lola is really good, but I liked Anna a lot more. I do know a lot of people that liked Lola more, though. Hope you like it!

    Good luck on your reading resolutions.

    Happy New Year 🙂

    • I used to read them a lot in high school, and then I just kind of stopped. But I’ve been getting into them again, and I forgot how fun they are to read!

      I’m definitely looking forward to reading Lola, and it seems like people like both but prefer one to the other. I’m sure I’ll like it.
