message 1: by Michele (new)

Michele Um...I'm just as excited as everyone else that Walking Disaster and Apollyon are coming out in 2013 (both are in my TBR list), but both are going to be traditionally published and are NOT going to be INDIE books. Walking Disaster will be published by Atria Books(Simon and Schuster) and Apollyon by Spencer Hill Press. Come on, I'll vote for both of these books in another list, but let's show some INDIE love! : )


Brooke-True Story Book Blog I absolutely agree with Michele. This list specifically says "Indie" authors. I can't wait for Walking Disaster (Travis is my number one book boyfriend) but Jamie is a published author. Also, Entwined With You, Sylvia Day is far from Indie. Reckless, hello, who doesn't want to read some more Kellan? But yes, show the Indie Authors some love. :)


message 3: by Lisa (new)

Lisa I third this debate - I LOVE LOVE LOVE Jamie, Sylvia and S.C. - but they are not indie. At this point...maybe the list name should be changed? There are a lot of other Indie author lists out there like the Lucky 13's - http://www.goodreads.com/list/show/29... - that has all indie authors on it. Just a thought....


message 4: by Stacy (new)

Stacy Borel Seriously...is someone blowing smoke up my butt? (excuse my crudeness) But how on earth did I get on this list with some of these authors that I personally consider the best out there? This is just nuts too me!


message 5: by Juliana (new)

Juliana Uhh...a good part of these books re already published or are not indie...I still love them but I am just saying. Molly McAdams and Sydney London are also published now.


message 6: by Amy (new)

Amy Some of these books are already out now. They shouldnt be on here.


message 7: by Michele (new)

Michele Amy wrote: "Some of these books are already out now. They shouldnt be on here."

You're right Amy. I wonder sometimes if people really look at the criteria for each individual Listopia list before putting books on it....


message 8: by Amy (new)

Amy Well I don't think a librarian can fix it but if they can they should. It's not what you want to read next year! It's new books you're looking forward too!!!


message 9: by Lisa (new)

Lisa It's also Indie books...which some of these books are not.....not that they aren't great books that I can't wait to read....just not for this list.


message 10: by Amy (new)

Amy Agreed!


message 11: by Amy (new)

Amy So can the creator of the list not remove those books that obviously don't qualify??


message 12: by Michele (new)

Michele Amy wrote: "So can the creator of the list not remove those books that obviously don't qualify??"

Absolutely they can!


message 13: by Christina (new)

Christina Well there are some of these that publish both mainstream and via the Indie set. Olivia Cunning for one has a contract for one series and is self-publishing her other series. I believe I've seen both her series on here.


message 14: by Melanie (new)

Melanie I'm looking for Sacrifice by Stacey Rourke & Phoenix Shadow by Lisa Morgan. Those are the ones I'd vote for!


message 15: by Tricia (new)

Tricia Witt Um..I don't know about the rest of you, but I would like to know how I am suppose to get anything else done in my life with all these great books coming out! My family and friends think I am already nuts with the amount of books I have been reading! So waiting for walking disaster , entwined with you...Molly McAdams...Sydney Landon...S C Stephens...ugh! Clone me please


message 16: by Linda-Grace (new)

Linda-Grace I voted for Touch and Geaux as i am obssesed with Ty and Zane.


Victoria Loves Books Off the wall question...is there a way to be notified when books on TBR list are released? I've got books on Goodreads and books on my Amazon wish list...so many books and not enough time.


message 18: by Wappigirl (new)

Wappigirl [author:Sylvia Day Crossfire Trilogy|6695983
I'm so anxious to read Eva &Gideon steamy, exotic & challenging love story together with her hot roommate Cary love him even with multiple. sex preference. June can't come soon enough.


message 19: by Jack (new)

Jack Hi everyone,

I have created a new group called Goodreads All Sorts and I'd love for people to join it or just even just give it a look. It's a group that discusses anything and everything. There will be monthly group reads, movies, and music. There is a folder for everything you could think of. I'd really like if people could spread the word because I'd love for the group to be a success. Here is the link to the group:

http://www.goodreads.com/group/show/9...

Thanks very much,
Jack :-)

I will be publishing my book in April 2013...check it out and see if it's what you're looking for! Thanks.


message 21: by [deleted user] (new)

Hi everyone! I am an upcoming aspiring author and am working on my very first novel! It's called Reaching Out For You. Come meet Adam and Sophia and follow them on their journey! Also LIKE me on Facebook by searching S Moose author to read my updates and snippets of my book! I look forward to hearing from you!


message 22: by Jaylee (new)

Jaylee Is there a reason nearly every single book on this list is romance? Aren't there any OTHER indie books coming out this year? :S


message 23: by AnnaLund (new)

AnnaLund How can books published by Penguin ever be considered "Indie" books? Why are they even on this list?

LET'S GIVE THE INDIE AUTHORS SOME LOVE HERE, PEOPLE!

They are the ones that need a boost.


message 24: by Mad about (new)

Mad about How is JR Wards Lover at Last on here??? No where near Indie

Some ppl need to pick a different list


message 25: by Keye (new)

Keye Are you honestly supposed to scroll through almost 700 books to find the book that you want to vote for? Surely there is an easier way to do this?

THANK YOU for saying this <3


message 27: by Mad about (new)

Mad about I agree. whats the point of having an indie list if you wont stick to it but even some of the Indie books arent 2013 release but their older ones

My book is also not a YA cliche book. A Symphony of Cicadas. Check me out!


message 29: by Jess (new)

Jess i've read a great big portion of these books .. most of witch i loved but i wish i found more books like reckless or the inflight series... i love me some Kellen and James lol


message 30: by Dawn (new)

Dawn Husted I'm still figuring Goodreads out and just discovered this group. Thanks for showing Indie authors your support!! I'll be reading Annie Oldham's Infraction next, really liked the first in her Burn series.


message 31: by Melissa (new)

Melissa I added Girl on Tour by Caisey Quinn- I am dying for that release!


message 32: by Cindy (new)

Cindy Reifel I love that there is a place to vote for indie authors. I have no idea where the idea that the J.R. Ward book was on this list. I went through it 4 times and this was not a list that book is on.


message 33: by Swarzy (new)

Swarzy Crozmal'temiz am loving this...


message 34: by Monalisa (last edited Sep 15, 2013 09:11PM) (new)

Monalisa Swarm There are books on here that are not Indie books, nor are they upcoming and they have been out since 2011 & 2012. I understand this list was created in December of 2012 and at that time some of these books were upcoming. However I think the list creator needs to go thru here and remove the published authors on this list. If you are truly INDIE, you do not have a publisher and do things all on your own. The Published Authors are on many other lists as I have voted on some of them there. This list is for INDIE Authors only Sorry!

don't know if you got a reply to this or not, but there's a site called fictfact.com that lets you track your series and tells you when the next one is coming out.


message 36: by Queenel (new)

Queenel Etana wow great script!


message 37: by Anastasia (new)

Anastasia Does "indie" mean smut or romance? I thought indie meant being published by a small or independent press. These books look mostly like they're sexy beach reads.
