Top Ten Books We Resolve to Read in 2013

Sharon's Answers

1) Jellicoe Road by Melina Marchetta

Well, I've meant to read this book for close to a year. I've seen it all over, and it sounds really good! And according to Racquel in the 2012 Book Survey, "...if YOU haven't read a Melina Marchetta book, well, you are not living life... READ. A. MELINA. MACRHETTA. BOOK." Ergo, I should clearly read this ASAP.

2) Any John Green Book

Yes, it's true. I have seen the genius of John Green proclaimed repeatedly for over a year now, and I still haven't read any of his books. I need to fix that this year, and The Fault in Our Stars and Looking for Alaska are the most likely candidates for my first.

3) The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath

I have seen this book on list after list for years and have meant to read it since early high school. It is supposed to be good, and I want to read it. This is the year. I'm proclaiming it! Plus, I should read a classic or two, because I really do like them but I tend to forget in the face of romance and YA.

4) Any Karen Witemeyer Book

My sister and two of my closest friends absolutely love Karen Witemeyer and say she is among the best Christian romance writers. Several of her books have been free on ebook recently, so I now have a mini-collection on my Nook. They all sound good, and I am going to read one soon.

5) The Princess Bride by William Goldman

This is my best friend's favorite book, and we often have very similar taste in books. I love the movie, and I have heard the book is better. I've even checked it out from the library a couple times. Yet, I still haven't gotten around to reading it. Inconceivable, I know! This is the year!
(I just finished this book yesterday! VERY fun!)

   1) The Harry Potter series by
I promised my best friend that I would start this series soon since it's her all time favorite and I shall! I'm kind of scared though. I NEED to love it. I MUST.

This is one is for you Sharon! (She loves this book) Plus I have been watching the Lizzie Bennet Diaries so I definitely need to see the origin of all this love.
Pretty much EVERYONE loves this series. EVERYONE. And I want to jump on the bandwagon to see why! (Does anybody want to read along with me?)

5) by

, sometime in 2011 and really liked it. Why haven't I read the second and final book?!
