2013 Reading Plan

December 30, 2012 in Uncategorized by Penny

For the first time ever, I’m making a game plan of the books I want to read in the upcoming year.

I was thoroughly disappointed in how many books I read in 2012 (the list was, sadly, quite sparse), so I’m tackling my reading goal for the next year head-on.

In no particular order:

Fragments by Dan Wells

Third book in Divergent series by Veronica Roth (still untitled)

Notorious Nineteen by Janet Evanovich

Dead Ever After by Charlaine Harris

The Casual Vacancy by JK Rowling

Warm Bodies by Issac Marion

Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater

One Second After by William Forstchen

Leviathan by Scott Westerfield

To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee

The Grimm Legacy by Polly Shullman

The Giver by Lois Lowry

The Dead Don’t Dance by Charles Martin

Maggie by Charles Martin (this is pending my opinion of the first book in the series)

The Atonement Child by Francine Rivers

The Covenant by Beverly Lewis

A Merry Heart by Wanda Brunstetter

Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare

Same Kind Of Different As Me by Ron Hall

A book by Ted Dekker – I didn’t read anything by Ted Dekker in 2012, and that just feels wrong.

Book number 20 in the Stephanie Plum series by Janet Evanovich (still untitled)


Important notes……

*This list is subject to extreme change, but I am going to try REALLY HARD to read everything listed above. A lot of these books have been in my “to read” stack for a ridiculously long time. Like, YEARS.

*I left this list short as I’m sure there are books I will randomly encounter and want to read immediately.

*Some of these books are the first in a series, so it stands to reason that I may or may not read the subsequent books in that book-family.

*This list does not contain non-fiction books I intend to read.


And one more thing…………………

I’m fully on-board with the dystopian train that is currently making stops everywhere. Dystopian is huge right now, and I love it. Dystopian is particularly huge in YA, and I happen to love YA.

When I was surfing books on Amazon earlier, I came across this sampler for my Kindle. I pounced on it like white on rice. IT’S FREE.

I’ve read two of the books in the sampler, have been interested in a couple of others, but a couple of them are books I hadn’t heard of yet. I’m going to try out all of these this year too……..


Here’s the link to the sampler, if you’re interested.
