Top 10 of 2012 hosted by Two Chicks on Books and Magical Urban Fantasy Reads

This is just a preliminary list because I’m sure there are tons more awesome titles on the way that haven’t even been announced yet but here’s my 2013 wishlist as it currently stands:

10 Up From The Grave by Jeaniene Frost Up From The Grave by Jeaniene Frost
This selection shouldn’t come as a surprise; anyone who’s ever read a book featuring Cat & Bones knows what I’m talking about! This series is beyond addictive and I have high hopes for this seventh installment!
9 Crave The Darkness by Amanda Bonilla Crave The Darkness by Amanda Bonilla
It was insta-love when I first met Darian in Shaedes of Gray and I’m SO looking forward to finding out what kind of trouble she finds herself in this time. That and I want to know what’s going to happen between her an Tyler because after the last book’s cliffhanger I gots to know!!
8 Lover at Last by JR Ward Lover at Last by J.R Ward
I’m happy to report that I’m only one book away from being entirely caught up in the BDB series and I can’t wait to get on the Qhuinn/Blay fan-wagon right out of the station along side all of the other J.R. Ward lovers!
7 Omens by Kelley Armstrong Omens by Kelley Armstrong
The ending of her Women of the Otherworld series earlier in 2012 brought tears to my eyes so I was overjoyed when she announced that she’d be starting a new series in 2013. It’s vastly different from what I’ve come to expect from her but Kelley Armstrong has never steered me wrong so I have very high hopes about this upcoming release!
6 Binding the Shadows by Jenn Bennett Binding the Shadows by Jenn Bennett
The Arcadia Bell books are a must-read for all Urban Fantasy fans in my opinion and I for one can’t wait to reconnect with my favourite band of misfits: Cady, Loan & Jupe!
5 Oath Bound by Rachel Vincent Oath Bound by Rachel Vincent
I fell head-over-heels in love with the first book, Oath Bound, and have come to expect nothing less but the best from Vincent. I’m confident that this third novel is going to rock my socks off in April 2013!
4 Cold Blooded by Amanda Carlson Cold Blooded by Amanda Carlson
Jessica McClain is my latest werewolf obsession and I’m over-the-moon (pun intended!) excited that Amanda will be publishing not one, but TWO wolfishly awesome books in the new year.
3 Deadly Sting by Jennifer Estep Deadly Sting by Jennifer Estep
It’s been a while since a series has managed to capture me the way that Estep’s Elemental Assassin series has. Being the addict that I am, unfortunately I wasn’t able to savour the experience because I read all of these books wicked fast but luckily for me; there are two more on the way in 2013.
2 Heart of Venom by Jennifer Estep Heart of Venom by Jennifer Estep
This is what I’m talking about! Two 2013 releases!
1 Hot Blooded by Amanda Carlson Hot Blooded by Amanda Carlson
I’ve been counting down the days until this book ever since I read Full Blooded back in September. The wait has been excruciatingly long and painful but I have faith that this installment will make it all worthwhile!

  1. Great list. I tooooo can’t wait for the JR Ward book. It just may be worth the hefty Kindle price tag. I normally wait a long time to read the new releases on paperback because the ebook prices are skyrocket expensive.

  2. There are some awesome titles on this list. Some I hadn’t even heard of let alone knew were coming out in 2013. I love Kelley Armstrong though still need to read thirteen and you’re right, Omens sounds very different than women of the otherworld but definitely will be picking it up. I am up to Lover Mine in the Black dagger brotherhood series so still have a ways to go but I will get there as I have loved the series so far and will almost certainly be looking up oath bound as I received shadow bound before Christmas and hope to read it shortly. Again, great list! and you can check out my top ten for 2013 here:
