Upcoming books, 2013 edition: A top ten list

Soooo….it’s almost the new year. Assuming we all survive 12-21-12, there will plenty of good books to read in 2013. Here are ten I will be picking up (as hosted by The Broke and The Bookish), in no particular order.

10. Finding Camlann by Sean Pidgeon
9. Schroder by Amity Gage
8. The Good House by Ann Leary
7. The Interestings by Meg Wolitzer
6. Love Is a Canoe By Ben Schenk
5. The All Souls Trilogy conclusion (maybe?)
4. Frances and Bernard by Carlene Bauer
3. NOS4A2 by Joe Hill
2. The Fun Parts by Sam Lipsyte
1. Doctor Sleep by Stephen King (okay, and Joyland)

What are you looking forward to? Although my list isn’t in a specific order, I am most looking forward to the top three (funny how that happens).

Honorable mentions: the final Sookie book (so happy that series will be done), the new Neil Gaiman, the new Stephanie Perkins, and Walking Disaster.

    Snap! We have a few of the same books in our reading stacks… no surprises there! Love is a Canoe looks good.

    • Rory O’Connor

      I just got that one yesterday on Netgalley, I’ll let you know!

    Great list! All of these titles sound interesting, am going to check them out. It’d be nice if the final volume of the All Souls trilogy comes out next year…although I’m waiting for the second book in paperback so it might be a while for me xP

    • Rory O’Connor

      I’m hoping it’ll come out, but I don’t actually think it will. I can’t wait!

  • monica

    Great list. I cant wait to read The Good House and The Interestings either. Feel free to come by and checkout My TTT

    • Rory O’Connor

      I can’t wait for The Good House, some of what I’ve seen say it’s comedy, some say drama. It sounds like a good mix!

  • Tanya Patrice

    There are so many books on this list that I want to read like NOS4A2 and The All Souls Trilogy (books 2 & 3). Hope you enjoy them all when you get to them 🙂

  • Kelly

    Oooh I didn’t know there was a new Joe Hill coming out. Might have to look into that one! I’m pretty psyched about Doctor Sleep though.
    My Top 10

    • Rory O’Connor

      There is and it looks so good! I can’t wait for Doctor Sleep, September seems so far away (April does too, for that matter).

  • The Reading-ista (@thereadingista)

    The Good House sounds good. Thanks for the intro to a couple of new reads.

  • Jorie

    Thanks for visiting Jorie’s Reads… I like the Meg Wolitzer book’s cover 🙂 . I’ve yet to read anything by Joe Hill. Is his writing style similar to Stephen King’s?

    • Lisa

      Definitely check out Joe Hill! The Heart-Shaped Box is incredibly scary, and I mean that in a very good way. His Locke & Key graphic novels are excellent too.

      • Rory O’Connor

        I had a parenting fail the other day when I caught my 4 year old at my bookshelf reading Locke & Key. He loved it, but I still had to pull the “when you’re older” bit and take it away.

  • Lisa

    Looks like we have a lot in common! I can’t wait for Joe Hill and Neil Gaiman (and forgot to include Meg Wolitzer on my TTT list, but just preordered the book — sounds great!) I’ll check out some of your other choices as well. Great list!

    Yesssss…. high-five! First time I’ve seen NOS4A2 on anyone’s Top Ten today. (Well besides mine!) And I’m not sure if I’m excited for the new Harkness book either. I was SO disappointed in #2… I actually haven’t even finished it yet. Hopefully I get around to it before the finale is published. GREAT picks!
    My TTT!

    • Rory O’Connor

      I wasn’t disappointed, but I love history. And I enjoyed the edition of Gallowglass and am looking forward to learning more about him.

  • Lucy

    So many great titles and cover, many are new to me. I’ve seen Joe Hill’s book on a few lists and I need to give his books a try. Love is a Canoe sounds like a good one too. And hopefully we will see another All Souls book out in 2013!

    • Rory O’Connor

      You should if you like horror. I’m about to start reading Love Is a Canoe – I am hoping it’s good! I’ve been in a bit of a reading rut lately…

  • Angela @ AJ Arndt Books Blog

    The Good House sounds like something I would enjoy reading.

  • Laura

    I’m definitely going to check out the Lipsyte. I’m always interested to see what Stephen King is up to as well.

  • christinasr

    I had completely forgotten about NOS4A2… I need to get that one!

  • booksnyc

    I have The Good House on my list too and Sam Lipsyte is very funny so glad to see he has a new one coming out.

  • lowcountrybooklover

    Very much looking forward to NOS4A2 and Doctor Sleep. I probably have enough books on my kindle to get me through the year but, let’s face it, I’ll buy a ton more!
