December 13th (a Friday no less) and 2013 is drawing to a close far too quickly for my liking. And as every year I’ll be wrapping up the year with my anticipated books posts for the first half of the coming year and with my favourite books for 2013. In the coming two-and-a-half weeks I’ll be posting lists of my anticipated books, culminating in my most anticipated reads for the first half of 2014. I’ve chosen to just list the books alphabetically by author per month and divided over several genre categories. YA and MG have their own posts with all the genres mixed together, but they deserved a spot of their own. Fantasy, historical fiction, and YA had so many titles that caught my eye, they each get two posts.
These lists are by no means exhaustive, as I wasn’t able to find any information for some publishers and I’m sure I’ve forgotten to check some others. At the same time, I’m certain I won’t be reading all of the books on the lists, because a) there’s no way I can afford to buy them all and b) even if I could, I’d never have enough time to read them all. Still, I wanted to put these books in the spotlights and draw some attention to them. Even if I won’t manage to read all of them, maybe seeing them here will alert others to them and get them interested. That’s why I named the posts Anticipated Books, as I don’t know which ones I’ll be able to read.
Hopefully you’ll spot something on the list that you’ll enjoy and would have missed otherwise!
