This year, Coranne and I are happy to take part in the Top 10 of 2012 meme.  There have been a ton of amazing books that have come out this year, or which we've read this year, and so we're spreading our top picks out with a new theme every day. 

Today, we're wrapping up our week of posts by sharing the books we're most looking forward to in 2013.  There were some hard choices to be made here -- there are so many great series which I've started and can't wait to read more of!  Be sure to share your favorites in the comments, too.

Dark Triumph By Robin LaFevers Published on April 2, 2013
Published by Houghton Mifflin Books for Children
Sybella arrives at the convent’s doorstep half mad with grief and despair. Those that serve Death are only too happy to offer her refuge—but at a price. Naturally skilled in both the arts of death and seduction, the convent views Sybella as one of their most dangerous weapons.

But those assassin’s skills are little co…

Sarah's Picks:
(As a side note, because I have to be different and contrary and can't follow rules, and also because I read a lot of books this year with really gross male characters in them - a rant for another time - I'm picking my favorite Book Significant Others Regardless of Gender.  So there.)

Sarah's Picks:
So if you've picked up on anything in our reviews, it's that we are big fans of strong female characters in books, so when we got to pick our own theme today, I knew exactly what I wanted to write about.  Coranne snagged a couple of my picks -- Throne of Glass and Grave Mercy -- but fortunately, there's no shortage of smart, savvy, kick-butt ladies in books today!  My picks are women who I admire for being brilliant and fearless, characters who aren't content to play the role of damsel in distress, no matter what anyone says.

Seraphina By Rachel Hartman Published on July 10, 2012
Published by Random House Books for Young Readers
A few of my picks, this one included, are sort of cheating because I haven't read them yet, but I'm sure I'll be forgiven in the name of pretty book covers, and they're on my to-read lists, anyway. Maybe I'll get to them in 2013! The line art on this one is exquisite -- so very detailed, and evocative of the fantasy world that the story inhabits. I'm a sucker for a well-drawn cover, and this is one of them.
A Hologram …
