Book Drunkard’s Top 5 Most Anticipated Releases of 2013


The list of books whose releases I’m eagerly awaiting in 2013 is a long one.  So again, I’m using the hat method.  If I don’t, this post will be as long as A Game of Thrones…  seriously.  Again, in no particular order –

Confessions of Marie Antoinette by Juliet Grey:  Previously entitled (tentatively, I guess) The Last October Sky, “Confessions”  is the last book in Grey’s trilogy and will be released in September of 2013.  January 1st seems like a better release date – not sure I can wait that long!!

The Tudor Conspiracy by C.W. Gortner:  Book two in the Spymaster Chronicles, it will be released in July.  Another long wait!  But, the best things in life are worth waiting for, right?

The White Princess by Philippa Gregory:  This release will be the 5th in Gregory’s “The Cousin’s War” series.  You either love or hate PG and I happen to love her books.  It comes out just before my birthday in August.  Perfect!

Royal Inheritance by Kate Emerson:  Another September release I’m looking forward to, this is book is the 6th in Kate’s “Secrets of the Tudor Court” series.  I’ve thoroughly enjoyed all of her previous books.

The Chalice by Nancy Bilyeau:  Finally, a release date that isn’t so far away.  Coming in February, this is Bilyeau’s second book.  It follows the same character as the first book but I haven’t heard yet if it will be a trilogy.

There you have it!  What books are YOU most looking forward to next year?

  1. All those you mentioned are on my wishlist. Shadow On The Crown by Patricia Bracewell has had me excited since I first read anything on it. Bring on 2013! 🙂

  2. Oh I can’t wait for the Gortner book either. Way too long of a wait!! Great list.

  3. I’m looking forward to The Chalice and The White Princess too and I also can’t wait for Diana Gabaldon’s new book, Written in My Own Heart’s Blood, and Paris by Edward Rutherfurd. 2013 should be a great year for historical fiction.
