Now, to try and sum up what I am looking forward to in 2013, it’s just cruel!  There are so many ‘next books in the series’ I can’t wait to get my hands on.  There are also a ton of authors working on new projects that I am eager to read… So, here is my lame attempt at just picking five…

2.  Clockwork Princess by Cassandra Clare

3.  Dark Triumph by R.L. LaFevers
