Most Anticipated Books in a Series - 2013

I hope you enjoyed my post last week showcasing my personally most anticipated Books by a debut author for the first six months of 2013. Today I am going to showcase the most anticipated books in a series that I have enjoyed. There are some amazing series out there at the moment and so many that I still need to start, so this post only includes ones I am already in the middle of reading. 
If I Should Die by Amy Plum 
Oh how I love this series and Book 2 ended on such a huge cliffhanger, I must find out what happens next. I can't believe I have to wait until May!
Previous titles in series - Die For Me and Until I Die
Goddess by Josephine Angelini
I love this series too. The Greek Mythology has really caught my interest. This will be published in June. 
Previous titles in the series - Starcrossed and Dreamless
Enders by Lissa Price.
This isn't the final cover as I get the impression it hasn't been revealed yet. But it will be published around March time. There are only two books in this series and the first one was majorly explosive. So I can't wait to see what happens next.
Previous title in series: Starters
Because It Is My Blood by Gabrielle Zevin. 
The second book in the Birthright series with a rather plucky main character. A Godfather inspired thriller set in futuristic New York with excellent world building. 
Previous title in series: All These Things I've Done
Sweet Shadows by Tera Lynn Childs 
I only read the first book in this series last week but I am already eagerly anticipating the sequel with the amazing Medusa girls. This will be published by Templar Books. 
Previous book in this series: Sweet Venom
Walking Disaster by Jamie McGuire
OK so this isn't technically a series and this isn't the UK cover, but hey it's my blog and I do as I darn well like. This is the story from the point of view of Travis, so it is more of a companion book. The UK cover will be revealed next year and the book will be published by Simon and Schuster in April.
Previous title: Beautiful Disaster
Night School Legacy by C.J. Daugherty.
Has it really been a year since I read this debut novel?? Set in an academy, this is an ace super sleuth novel of mystery and suspense - teenage style!
Out January with Atom. 
Previous title: Night School
Siege and Storm by Leigh Bardugo.
I'm not sure if this will be the title for the UK book as the first one was changed. This is the sequel to The Gathering Dark which I loved this year. It is the second book in the series and the UK one will have a totally different cover. 
Previous title: The Gathering Dark
Clockwork Princess by Cassandra Clare.
I couldn't forget this now could I! This will be the third instalment in The Infernal Devices series set in Victorian Steampunk London.
Previous titles: Clockwork Angel  and Clockwork Prince
Crystal Cove by Lisa Kleypas
I have really enjoyed this Friday Harbour series and I will be sad to see the end of it. I have one more to read and hope to get it finished by the time this final book hits the shelves. It will be published by Piatkus in February 2013.
Previous titles in the series: Christmas Eve At Friday Harbour, Rainshadow Road and Dream Lake

There are other books in series but they are missing covers at the moment. So I'm guessing I will be doing another post just like this in the summer. Let me know if you have read and enjoyed any of these series too. 


  1. Aargh, you forgot Requiem from the Delirium series by Lauren Oliver! The world better not end this year, cos I ain't leaving til I've read that book!

    1. Hahaha - I wasn't so fussed by the last book I'm afraid.

  2. You've got 3 I've got on my list! Can't tell you which though as post doesn't go up till the end of the month ;)
    Brill picks

  3. 2013 is going to be such a fantastic book year!
    I CAN NOT wait for Clockwork Princess, it's becoming one of my favourite series ever.
