Tripping Over January

Five Books I’m Looking Forward to in January

New year = clean reading slate, friends. I can’t believe how many excellent books are coming out this year, and how many of them are coming out THIS MONTH! 2013 is off to a great start, guys, and I’m particularly excited to start the year by reading these five books (among others, no doubt).

Book cover for Just One Day by Gayle Forman

Amazon | Goodreads

Just One Day: Just One Day #1 by Gayle Forman 

I just loved Gayle Forman’s previous duo, IF I STAY/WHERE SHE WENT, and I’m hearing really excellent things about JUST ONE DAY. I’m dying to read it. DYING.

Book cover for Prodigy by Marie Lu

Amazon | Goodreads

Prodigy: Legend #2 by Marie Lu

DUH. LEGEND is one of my favorite dystopians. I even liked it a touch better than DIVERGENT. I’ve been fortunate enough to read PRODIGY already and, guys? I promise, this is one of the best series around right now. Great action, great pacing, great characters, great world-building. ALL GREAT THINGS.

The Archived

Amazon | Goodreads

The Archived: The Archived #1 by Victoria Schwab

Umm, a book about kick-ass librarians who are keepers of the DEAD who exist as BOOKS?? I can’t even. It just sounds so clever and, if it’s anything like THE NEAR WITCH, a little dark and gorgeous, too.

Book cover for The Cadet of Tildor by Alex Lidell

Amazon | Goodreads

The Cadet of Tildor by Alex Lidell

Friends, I am reading this one right now and REALLY enjoying myself. It’s one of those fantasies where it just kind of effortlessly  (even though you can totally tell that so much thought went into the world-building) sucks you in and strings you along. I’m only about a quarter of the way through and I’m invested in the drama, and the characters are unique and have great relationships. (I’m loving the contentious doings between Savoy and Renee!)

Book cover for Shadowlands by Kate Brian

Amazon | Goodreads

Shadowlands by Kate Brian

I’m totally fascinated by the sound of this one, friends. A contemp about a young girl who survives an attack by a serial killer who must go into witness protection when he gets out of jail, only to have mysterious things happen in the new home she shares with her father and sister. It sounds mysterious and awesome.

    These five books are all on my list of books to check out this month! I’m especially excited about Just One Day and The Archived, since I’ve been hearing great things about both.

    Super excited for Just One Day!

    Also, just wanted to take a minute to say that I know I haven’t been commenting a lot lately. Please know that I am always reading, if not commenting, and I am working on making that a thing in 2013! Have a great year.

    Everyone has been raving about Just One Day, and I can’t wait to read it myself. So glad it’s coming out at the beginning of the year. Although, let’s be honest, I probably won’t get around to reading it for a while because I won’t let myself buy it unless I start it right away. My TBR is groaning and needs relief haha!

    And I’m super intrigued by Shadow Lands now. The cover is really eye-catching, as is the description. Glad you highlighted it here!

Tell me what's up!
