2012 Releases to Read in 2013

I read loads of awesome 2012 releases this year, but there's still so many I didn't get around to. Here are the twelve 2012 releases I'm most looking forward to reading next year!

1. The Disenchantments by Nina LaCour

Nina LaCour's debut, Hold Still, is one of my favorite books, period. And everyone else loved The Disenchantments. And the cover is gorgeous. So yeah, I really, really need to read this one.

2. The List by Siobhan Vivian

I've heard mixed things about this one, but the whole concept just sounds like such a great idea! And Siobhan Vivian is awesome.

3. Breaking Beautiful by Jennifer Shaw Wolf

Breaking Beautiful sounds dark and just perfect for me, and I've heard great things about it.

4. In Honor by Jessi Kirby

I loved Jessi Kirby's Moonglass, and In Honor sounds even more amazing. And everyone else has already read and loved this one, so I'm sure I will, too, when I finally read it.

5. Second Chance Summer by Morgan Matson

I've heard mixed things about Second Chance Summer, but I still can't wait to read it. Morgan Matson really impressed me with Amy & Roger's Epic Detour, and Second Chance Summer sounds right up my alley, too.

6. A Midsummer's Nightmare by Kody Keplinger

I loved Kody Keplinger's debut, The DUFF, but have somehow not yet managed to read either Shut Out or A Midsummer's Nightmare. I really need to read those two in 2013.

7. The Best Night of Your (Pathetic) Life by Tara Altebrando

I'm not sure what it is about The Best Night of Your (Pathetic) Life, but I just have a feeling it'll be awesome. It doesn't sound like a book that'll be deep and meaningful and stay with me forever, but it just sounds fun. Scavenger hunts are so much fun, and I love books set at the very end of high school.

8. Speechless by Hannah Harrington

Why oh why have I not read this one!? Saving June is one of my favorite books, so I'm sure I'll love Speechless, too, once I get to it.

9. Send Me a Sign by Tiffany Schmidt

I know a lot of people have gotten annoyed by tearjerker-y cancer-kids books, but I still love them. I'm weird - I just love when a book can make me cry!

10. The Space Between Us by Jessica Martinez

I loved Jessica Martinez's Virtuosity, and The Space Between Us sounds right up my alley. I love sister stories, and this one sounds perfect for me!

11. Ask the Passengers by A.S. King

I read Please Ignore Vera Dietz as my first AS King book this year, and it's obvious that I need more AS King in my life. Ask the Passengers sounds so good, and the cover is gorgeous!

12. Meant to Be by Lauren Morrill

Meant to Be just sounds so, so cute, and I haven't read a good romance in way too long!

Have you read any of the 2012 releases I missed? Which ones of these do I need to read right this second?


  1. The Disenchantments is on the top of my 2013 TBR as well, because Hold Still is simply amazing. The Best Night of Your (Pathetic) Life is so much fun, and I hope you enjoy it!

  2. The Disenchantments, A Midsummer's Nightmare, The List, Breaking Beautiful are all great books. The Best Night of Your (Pathetic) Life was good but not as good as books like Dash & Lily's Book of Dares or 7 Clues to Winning You. If you enjoyed Dash & Lily's Book of Dares or Anna and the French Kiss, you'll totally love Meant to Be. It's really good. Haven't read Speechless, Ask the Passengers, Send Me a Sign and The Space Between Us. If you haven't read Melina Marchetta's Froi of the Exiles and Quintana of Charyn yet, please read them asap. I swear on my life, you won't regret them.

  3. The List was quite good as well, very postmodern ending.

  4. I wasn't a huge fan of In Honor but I did love Speechless! I definitely would like to read The Disenchantments this year

  5. I loved Speechless - it was far more intense than I thought it would be, and I loved the character growth. Great list, loads there that I need to get onto as well!

  6. Loved A Midsummer's Nightmare and Meant To Be was ADORABLE! Both were great reads and I really hope you enjoy them both when you get to them.

    I'm hoping to read The Disenchantments and In Honor next year too. :]

  7. I have missed so many 2012 releases. I doubt I'll ever catch up, but fun trying.
