So half of 2013 has come and gone and you're wondering what is there to look forward to in the second half? Or at least I was, so I made a list of some notable new releases yet to come! Take a look then tell me what 2013 new releases you can't wait to read.

The Bitter Kingdom
Fire and Thorns #3
I can not wait to see what Rae Carson is going to do with this story! The second book ended on such a cliff hanger.
Just give me this book so that my mind can finally be at rest. LOL!

The Dream Thieves
Raven Cycle, Book 2
I just finished The Raven Boys. Unlike Shiver (which I found underwhelming - no offense to Shiver fans), The Raven Boys totally captured my interest and I'm hoping for more of the same . . . well not completely the same - that would be dull. :-)
A Radiant Sky
A Beautiful Dark, Book 3
I haven't read this series yet, but it's on my to read list and it's always nice to know that if you start a series you can finish it without waiting a few years!
The Internment Chronicles #1
Do you like Wither? Lauren DeStefano has another series coming out.
What Goodreads says about it:
"On Internment, the floating island in the clouds where 16-year-old Morgan Stockhour lives, getting too close to the edge can lead to madness. Even though Morgan's older brother, Lex, was a Jumper, Morgan vows never to end up like him. She tries her best not to mind that her life is orderly and boring, and if she ever wonders about the ground, and why it is forbidden, she takes solace in best friend Pen and her betrothed, Basil.
Then a murder, the first in a generation, rocks the city. With whispers swirling and fear on the wind, Morgan can no longer stop herself from investigating, especially when she meets Judas. He is the boy being blamed for the murder — betrothed to the victim — but Morgan is convinced of his innocence. Secrets lay at the heart of Internment, but nothing can prepare Morgan for what she will find — or who she will lose."

Confessions of a Murder Suspect
Confessions, Book 2
I've been working my way through James Patterson's many YA books and I think this series might be the next one I jump on. This one or Daniel X, I'm not sure. Have any of you read the first book in this series?
The Eye of Minds
The Mortal Doctrine, Book 1
I just finished The Maze Runner Trilogy and what do you know, James Dashner has a new series about to begin. I'll read it - Will you?

The House of Hades
Heroes of Olympus #4
I do love my Rick Riordan and especially anything Percy Jackson. It's good clean fun and makes me smile.
Film adaption of Percy Jackson and the Sea of Monsters coming this August!
Fallen wasn't my favorite series ever, but I'm very curious to see what else Lauren Kate will pull out of her hat.
Does the Fallen Movie have a director?

Divergent, Book 3
If you love dystopian fiction and haven't read Divergent - Go read it! It currently being filmed for it's big screen debut next year. I can't wait to see how this trilogy ends!

The Traitor Son
Iron Fey: Call of the Forgotten #2
I haven't made it to the Call of The Forgotten spin off yet. Julie Kagawa is way to fast for me!
November 5th, 2013
The Royal Ranger
Ranger's Apprentice, Book 12
Ranger's Apprentice is another guilty pleasure of mine next to Percy Jackson and Artemis Fowl. It's just more good fun and I am so excited to see how this series ends!
Read the first chapter here.
The Fiery Heart
Bloodlines, Book 4
I'm sure all the die hard Vampire Academy fans already know that we are getting two Bloodlines installments this year!
Be sure to also check out the Vampire Academy Movie currently filming and set to release Valentines Day 2014!
Those are some of my notables. What are yours?
