Top Ten Most Anticipated Books of 2013
-- Originally created by The Broke and Bookish
Clockwork Princess by Cassandra Clare
This is the third in the Infernal devices series, I am actually yet to read the second one but I will have finished that by the time that the third one is released. Even though I've only read the first one I am absolutely in love with this series and love Cassandra Clares character work with a passion - the way she creates believable witty characters that I actually laugh along with is amazing and I'm highly excited for this one to come out.
Divergent #3 by Veronica Roth
I wasn't too keen on Insurgent as I thought that the character of Tris got unbelievably irritating and I found myself wanting to punch her so many time during the whole thing - her stupidity was actually beyond me. However, the ending of the book, just wow. I have to find out what happens next no matter how awful the character development was - I'm just hoping that Veronica Roth pulls her finger out with the characterisation in this sequel as it has ever so much promise and I'm really looking forward to finding out what happens.
Requiem by Lauren Oliver
Again, like Clockwork Princess, I've only read the first one in the series and plan on reading the second one before this comes out. I absolutely adored Delirium and thought it such an imaginative and unique idea, it could have turned out so boring but Lauren Oliver's writing made it a wonderful story. I thought it would have been good as a stand alone book as it seemed to have the right feel for the end of the book, so we shall see how she carries on with the series.
Scarlet by Marissa Meyer
Oh my goodness, Cinder was one of my favourite books of this year without a shadow of a doubt. The characters, the story, the plot twists, oh so amazing. I found myself thinking this was a novel all in itself and not just a fairytale retelling - it was not what I had expected of it at all. It was a novel all in itself with a hint of the fairytale shining through the surface just there to remind you of it. It was so original and imaginative that I found myself delving into the story and not looking back. This is probably my most anticipated book out of all of them as I'm literally fan girling just thinking about it. I really can't contain myself about this one. It's also released around my birthday so that's an even better treat!
