2013 Debuts

As I signed up for the 2013 debut challenge, I figured it would be a good thing to go through the list of debuts that was compiled for the challenge and I checked out everything that sounded good, this should be my top 10, I put them down chronologically because no way I can actually put them in a top ten order.

1. Level 2

2. Nobody But Us

3. The Ruining

4. When We Wake

5. OCD, The Dude and Me

6. Mila 2.0

7. How My Summer Went Up in Flames

8. The Summer I Became a Nerd

9. Parallel

10. All Our Yesterdays

Book resolutions for 2013

Being a bit late this became Top Ten Thursday but here’s my list:

1. Read 50 books.
I managed to go a bit over 50 last year so I can definitely do it again I hope.

2. Read the books mentioned in my books I resolve to read in 2013 list.
I did make that list so I should make it a resolution.

3. Read more of Atwood’s poetry.
It definitely needs more attention from me.

4. Write more reviews.
I’m too lazy most of the time to write actual reviews so I just give out the stars on Goodreads.

5. Put books away when I don’t like them.
I do this and I don’t do this, if a book is outside of my comfort zone I easily put it away but if it’s something I feel I should like I’m always afraid I might miss out on something.

6. Read  more adult fiction.
I read way too much YA but it’s so much fun! And such easy reads… I should read some actual grown-up reading besides the reading that I have to do because that doesn’t count.

7. Read some actual books instead of ebooks.
I got tons of books that are not ebooks that I still have to read, should get some of those out of the way.

8. Read a classic.
It’s been a while since I read a classic, definitely haven’t read one since I graduated so it’s time.

9. Take part in the Debut Author Challenge
I saw it before but wasn’t sure if I should do it but it’s always fun to discover new authors right so let’s do it!

10. Get these done!
Filling that 10th spot.

Books I resolve to read in 2013

1. The Blind Assassin – Margaret Atwood
I’ve been dragging this book out since forever, I really need to read it now. There are some other Atwood books I need reread and read but this one should really be finished.

2. The Fault in Our Stars – John Green
I’ve heard so many good things about this book, I need to finally read it.

3. The Uglies – Scott Westerfield
I’ve been dragging this one along on my to read list for a long time now.

4. The Funny Thing Is… – Ellen Degeneres
For some reason I never finished this.

5. Shatter Me – Tahereh Mafi
Because I finally need to read this and the next one is coming out this year.

6. Saving Francesca – Melina Marchetta
Because I only ever saw the movie for Looking for Alibrandi and I finally need to read some Melina Marchetta.

7. Ready Player One – Ernest Cline
This has been in my to read next folder on my Kindle for a while, it’s time to finally tackle it.

8. This is Not A Test – Courtney Summers
Same reason as #8 really.

9. If I Stay – Gayle Forman
Another one I’ve been meaning to read for a while.

10. The Piano Man’s Daughter – Timothy Findley
I really need to get on with my Findley reading this year.
