  1. I loved Starters. Another favorite was Shadow and Bone. Great list, looking forward to more great adventures in 2013.

  2. ummm, 219 books?!! when do you sleep?!!! lol that’s a huge list! my favorites this year were rereads of Drood and The Dragonriders of Pern trilogy (nothing ever beats the Dragonriders!) but for “new stuff” I liked Blacklands by Belinda Bauer and And Unpardonable Crime by Andrew Taylor.

  3. Rain Maiden Jen – Hoping Enders releases soon! I’ve been waiting impatiently for the Starters sequel!

    Deslily – Sleep is the only thing I need more than books. So, I sacrifice tv time instead! Of course you list things I actually haven’t read yet.. guess I’ll have to look those up!

  4. I just read Star Wars: Scoundrels and enjoyed it. Was a fun blast to my past to read a Han Solo novel set in the original trilogy time period. I read the Winner Lose All novella first which was fun, a nice introduction to Bink and Tavia.
