Rebecca @ Reading Wishes - So glad you loved this, especially as I’m planning to read this next! I’ve never read a book by this author before, but I’ve heard fantastic things. I’m interested to meet Etta and will be aware that her character may take a bit of getting used to. Lovely review, Magan!

Magan - Brianna, I agree that it was very different than my typical reads, but I think that’s why it stood out so much. I hope you give it a try! 🙂

Magan - Yay, Alexa! That makes me really happy. Etta is SUCH a different character. She’s very in-your-face, but I think her journey is important. Plus, I just can’t neglect to acknowledge how well Moskowitz wrote the friendship aspect between Etta and Bianca. It blew my mind!

Alexa S. - I’d seen Not Otherwise Specified mentioned a couple of times, but wasn’t sure if I wanted to read it. But judging from your review, it’s an important sort of read because there’s nothing quite like it out there! I think I might pick it up just out of sheer curiosity. Thanks for sharing your thoughts, M 🙂

Brianna - This isn’t something I’d normally pick up, but it sounds really good. Etta sounds like a great character.

Aneeqah @ My Not So Real Life - Magan, you are totally right about 2013 starting off with a huge bang! Seriously, I’m about to start drooling over all these pretties. SO many of these books are ones I’ve been waiting forever for, like Asunder, Prodigy, Everbound, and Through the Ever Night. I can’t wait to see what these sophomore authors have in store for us next with their second books!! I’m also really looking forward to The Archived. I’ve only seen gushing reviews of it so far, and it sounds so utterly unique. I can’t wait to get my hands on it. Level 2 is also look fantastic! AND it’s written by a book blogger, so it really can’t get better than that. 😉 It’s going to be one of the few debuts that I preorder, I believe.

Thanks so much for putting this lovely post together, Magan! January 2013 is going to be fabulous!

Asheley Tart (@BookwormAsheley) - I want to comment on all of these books, but that would take forever. I *will* say that I’ve read Revolution 19 and it was fun. I JUST finished Prodigy and WOW WOW WOW. Also, since I base lots of my reading on covers (I know, I know, shallow Asheley?) I may have a tough time choosing from these because ALL of these covers are so great. And I already want to read them all. The beginning of 2013 is SUCH a great, exciting time to be a fan of YA!

Lisa the Nerd - Level 2! Level 2! Level 2!

Magan - Gaby – you’re such a sweetheart! These posts do take me a while, but that’s usually because wordpress decides to format things oddly and it drives me nuts. Haha! So happy you’re looking forward to so much. I swear I’ll spend all my Christmas money in January! 😉

Mands — I love the repackage too. I’ve only read one Caletti book so I’m definitely anxious for more!

Sara — I know, right?! SO much awesome!

December 29, 2012 - 8:45 pm

Magan - Me, too, Lily. There are SO MANY good books coming out!

December 29, 2012 - 8:26 pm

Lily - January is going to be such a good month for new releases I’m super excited… I just wish my bank account could say the same.

Gaby @ Queen Ella Bee Reads - This list is AMAZING. I’m talking mostly about the fact that you compiled it. What’s on it is also pretty great. Not to mention, I’m excited about a lot of things on it, especially Just One Day, All You Need is Love, Then You Were Gone, Paper Valentine, Return to Me and Nobody But Us. Thanks for all the hard work! ^_^

VeganYANerds - 2012 really did fly by, I can’t believe it!

I got all excited when I saw Love Is All You Need, thinking it was a new book by Deb but then I see it’s a re-package. Still, I love the title and the cover!

Also, can’t wait for Falling for You – have just heard good things about it!

December 29, 2012 - 12:09 am

Sara (of the Page Sage) - Ah! Too many awesome books! I’m especially excited for Just One Day, The Archived, and Paper Valentine.
