I usually have a long list of books I would like to read and never seem to get through them all before adding more and more books to the list. I'm a sucker for good cover art and will pick up a book at the library that I had never even heard of before and start reading that before books on my to-read list. These 12 books aren't the only books on my list, they are just the top 12, one for each month of 2013. Since I haven't read any of these books yet, I can't say much about them. Maybe they will show up on my recommended books list next year!
If you want a recommendation on what to read next based on the books you have read and enjoyed try Your Next Read. I have used it for fiction recommendations and have been happy with the results. It seems very comprehensive and has a tremendous amount of books linked. You can also link to your Good Reads account for even easier recommendations.
