Looking Ahead to 2013 December 31, 2012Posted by ccbooks in Nerd Line.
As we open a new year in just a little while, here are some YA titles that I am looking forward to in 2013:
The Moon and More by Sarah Dessen
Dessen is one of my favorite ‘light read’ authors–books with relatively simple stories, quirky side characters and protagonists who always get a happy ending.
Battle Magic by Tamora Pierce
We finally get the story that Pierce has been hinting about since The Will of the Empress was published at the end of 2005. Now my brother Danny’s favorite character Briar gets a book devoted to his adventures and experiences fighting a tyrannical emperor.
Isla and the Happily Ever After by Stephanie Perkins
More romance! More cute boys! Hopefully another fantastic city setting! If her last book is anything to go by, Perkins will be including many of her other former protagonists as side characters in this new tale. Because the title character was referenced (barely) in her first book, I am insanely curious about the plot and setting for this one.
Ghost Hawk by Susan Cooper
This should need no recommendation beyond the name of the author. When a book by Cooper is announced, all I can think is. Thank God. We get at least one more.
Sequels! Raven Boys, Diviners, Daughter of Smoke and Bone
So many characters to catch up with! One of the pleasures of this year’s reading was meeting many fictional people (Evie O’Neill, Blue Sargent, Karou and Zuzana) who I can’t wait to read about again.
