I'm Going to Read in 2013....

Since I started working as an editor, my time to read has drastically lessened. Between reading submissions, working on projects -- most of which start coming out this fall! YAY! -- and writing, I don't really have a lot of time to read. HOWEVER, I'm excited because I've set up a reward system for 2013. I have a lot of books to write (Three. In one year. At least!) and since motivation is good, each time I finish a book, I get to spend a whole week - 7 days - reading books. Like, finished real books.

Currently, I'm drafting the sequel to Follow Me Through Darkness --which I have 0 words because we just decided to start over-- and I can't wait to finish it because I really want to read! These are some of the books I'm looking forward to reading this year!  (You can click on the covers to add them to Goodreads and see their descriptions!)

Some more titles without covers:

One by Leigh Ann Koponas
Where the Stars Still Shine by Trish Doller
Game. Set. Match. by Jennifer Iacopelli
Isla and the Happily Ever After by Stephanie Perkins

These are just a few of the titles I want to read. I couldn't list them all or no one else would have anything left! :) With so many awesome things coming out this year, I'm really glad I have my new plan.

What are some things you're looking forward to? 


  1. I have a long list of books I want to read, too. I have to force myself not to write at night anymore and use that time to read. Otherwise I write or edit and get zero reading time.

  2. I have such a long wishlist of books but it would probably be a good thing to pull out the 'must reads' for this year.
    Great picks!



  3. I've been marking everyone's recommended books as to-read on Goodreads. I'm not sure if I'll get through them all this year, but I definitely won't lack for anything to read in the foreseeable future.
