January 2013 Preview

2013 is definitely going to start off with a bang for YA lit! I am declaring 2013 The Year of Sequels because nearly every book that I am eagerly anticipating for next year is a sequel to something I read in 2012, The Year of Debuts. I had hoped that next year I would finally be able to start reading the 60 or so books that I own but have yet to read but upon seeing the multitude of upcoming releases for 2013 I think this will be almost impossible. There are simply too many books being released that I absolutely MUST read first!!

Through the Ever Night by Veronica Rossi

Through the Ever Night by Veronica Rossi

I literally just started reading Under the Never Sky and even though I’m only about thirty pages in, I’m already hooked! I waited much longer than most to read this book but the good news is that I have less time to wait before the sequel is released! The even better news is that it is released the same day I am leaving for vacation, so I now have the perfect book to read on the airplane!

Release date:  January 8, 2013

 

 

 

 

 

Shades of Earth by Beth Revis

Shades of Earth by Beth Revis

This is the final book in the Across the Universe trilogy and I cannot even begin to say how excited I am to read this! Across the Universe was a stunning book about a space station in the middle of the universe and its sequel, A Million Suns was even better. I can’t wait to read the conclusion to Elder and Amy’s story!

Release date:  January 15, 2013

 

 

 

 

 

Level 2 by Lenore Appelhans

Level 2 by Lenore Appelhans

I’ve been a follower of Lenore’s blog for awhile now and I am very excited that her book has been published! Level 2 is the first book in The Memory Chronicles and is a story about a girl in the afterlife who spends her time reliving her memories from Earth. When she discovers that there might be a way to return to her old life and the boy she loves, she finds herself stuck in the middle of a rebellion. This sounds like a really interesting story and I can’t wait to read it!

Asunder by Jodi Meadows

Asunder by Jodi Meadows

Incarnate was one of my all time favorite books of 2012 and one of the most original stories I’ve ever read. The whole concept of reincarnation over and over again was fascinating and I can’t wait to see how Ana’s story continues.

Release date:  January 29, 2013

 

 

 

 

 

Prodigy by Marie Lu

Prodigy by Marie Lu

Legend has been on my to read list for a very long time and I have heard a lot of great things about both Legend and its sequel, Prodigy. The series is a dystopian featuring a strong female protagonist, so I’m sure I will love it. I will definitely have to read both very soon!

The Prey by Andrew Fukuda

The Prey by Andrew Fukuda

This book is the sequel to The Hunt, which is another one of my favorites from 2012. The Hunt was a completely different take on vampires and even though I thought I was over the whole vampire craze, I absolutely LOVED it. I can’t wait to see what happens next in The Prey.

Release date:  January 29, 2013

 

 

 

 

 

So it looks like a very exciting start to 2013! What releases are you looking forward to in the new year?
