Gisbelle | 27299 comments It may sound a bit weird to some of you (or maybe most of you), but I always start new year only with the book I really, really want to read. Maybe based on the covers or the authors.

This year, 2012, I started with Romero (The Moreno Brothers, #4) by Elizabeth Reyes because I loved Elizabeth Reyes.

Now I am not 100% sure what to read first in 2013. I think I may read either Fallen Too Far (Fallen Too Far, #1) by Abbi Glines or Rules of Negotiation by Inara Scott

What is your plan?

Alice Obermeier  (espritouvert) I just finished Ashfall and I loved every bit of it!

Jacquelyn (jacquelynreads) | 19024 comments I think I may read What's Left of Me (The Hybrid Chronicles, #1) by Kat Zhang for my first book of 2013! I am not positive yet but I really want to read it and based on reviews I've heard I think it would be a great way to start off the new year!

Ahhh! From what I've heard you are going to have a great start! I am currently reading BC and Matched and am enjoying them both. I've heard tons and tons of great things about The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer and I read TFIOS during the summer and it's one of my favorites. :D Hope you like them as much as I did! I really want to read Mara Dyer so I'll probably buy it after Christmas and read it late January/ Beginning of February! *excited*

Omg I know right!! I've heard so much hype about books like these, I'm just like, "I MUST READ!!" O_O
Plus the new BC movie is out next year. Have to read that before it comes out!!

Can't wait to start on them =D

message 9: by Sarah (new)

Sarah (simplysarah13) | 315 comments I don't really have a set book I want to read for 2013. I do, however, have a medium-sized list of books that I want to read on my Christmas break that could carry into 2013. :D

message 11: by Olga (new)

Olga Miret (goodreadscomolganm) I have a long list of books to read and a script from a filmmaker and friend...I'll update when I know how much I've managed to read before. 'Road to Charlie' or 'the Undeparted' are likely candidates...


message 12: by Olga (new)

Olga Miret (goodreadscomolganm) But I also have a few others...Oh, we'll see. So much to read, so little time!

message 14: by Paula (new)

Paula Arias (paulava25) | 9 comments have so many books i want read but first one will probably be Perfect Chemistry (Perfect Chemistry, #1) by Simone Elkeles i've been dying to read it


message 15: by Trisha, lives on coffee (new)

Trisha | 31440 comments what a great idea! I've never actually tried to make sure I start my new year with a good book, but that sounds like a great idea.

alright, I'm scouring my TBR pile next to my bed.
I'll update when I know ;)

Well, I'm on my school holiday summer break which is 7 weeks (I live in NZ so we have our summer break round Xmas) so I guess I have the books I got out from the school library. If I don't finish them before the new year - although I probably will :) then it would be City of Lost Souls (The Mortal Instruments #5) by Cassandra Clare but if I do finish then I think I would quite like to start off 2013 with The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien followed by the Lord of the Rings Trilogy as I haven't read them yet. I also have Matched (Matched, #1) by Ally Condie and The Angel Experiment (Maximum Ride, #1) by James Patterson to read so I guess it will depend on what I feel like. What do you guys recommend I read to start 2013 on a positive note??? :)


message 17: by Gisbelle (new)

Gisbelle | 27299 comments Looking good Jess. I think I am going to read The Hobbit soon as well. Maybe in the middle of January :)

SO GOOD. highly recommend :)

I'm so glad I'm not the only one that checks on my library books EVERY DAY (although I'm still checking in on my status on the First of that series ;D)

I hope it comes in soon for you!!!!


message 20: by Katie (new)

Katie (Kitkatscanread) (kitkatscanread) You just have to hope there's 8 fast readers in front of you =P


message 21: by Gisbelle (new)

Gisbelle | 27299 comments I might read Opal on the 2nd or 3 rd week. I want to read more contemporary in my first week of 2013 :)

Gabriela  (galeanogabriela) | 1 comments Planning on reading The Fault in our Stars :)

Good plan :)


message 24: by Tracy (new)

Tracy (tracesoftracy) | 95 comments Unearthly and Before I Fall since they are both library books and I'm reading unearthly now and about to read before I fall for discussion(:


message 25: by Gisbelle (new)

Gisbelle | 27299 comments Looking good Tracy. I am going to read The Coincidence of Callie and Kayden (The Coincidence, #1) by Jessica Sorensen since it is also my book for the copycat challenge :D


message 26: by Jacquelyn, thebrunettebooknerd (new)

Jacquelyn (jacquelynreads) | 19024 comments Before I fall will be one of the first few on my read shelf for 2013. I know I'll finish more books though between the first and the time when our buddy read starts! I'm excited to start off fresh with a new year! Hopefully a new year means another year filled with good books and maybe even the year that many good books are published:D


message 27: by Gisbelle (new)

Gisbelle | 27299 comments I sure hope so too, J :)


message 28: by Vicki (new)

Vicki (goodreadscomboobooper49) | 32355 comments I have so many that I really want to read, so it's hard to pick one!! But I'll decide tomorrow. I love this idea!


message 29: by Gisbelle (new)

Gisbelle | 27299 comments You know what Vic, I believe that if we start with a good book, it is going to be a good year :) I'm a bit superstition :P


message 30: by Trisha, lives on coffee (new)

Trisha | 31440 comments I think I'm going to read Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn
I had no idea it was the #1 added book in 2012. fingers crossed it's good. I've read one of the author's other books and it was VERY good.


message 31: by Gisbelle (new)

Gisbelle | 27299 comments It sounds like a good book, Trisha, but the cover is not very interesting. Let me know how it is, so I can decide whether to read it or not.


message 32: by Vicki (new)

Vicki (goodreadscomboobooper49) | 32355 comments Gis, I'll start with a really good book then!


message 33: by Gisbelle (new)

Gisbelle | 27299 comments good luck Vic! :)

message 39: by Gisbelle (new)

Gisbelle | 27299 comments I have it in my TBR and I am going to read it in 2 weeks time :D
