Welcome 2013

/ Books, Geek Stuff /

I have a feeling that 2013 is going to be a good year. Let’s face it, I’m a nerd so the things that are getting me excited about 2013 are mostly upcoming movies, returning television shows, and my epic to-read list.

I’m also hoping to get in a Con visit this year. My one and only convention was Comic-Con in 2010, which I thoroughly enjoyed. Since then, I’ve been dying to go back to Comic-Con or hit up another, closer convention, perhaps Wizard World in Toronto or Confluence in Pittsburgh.

There are a couple of movies coming out that I’m excited about including the new Star Trek and the next Hobbit. I’m not sure, but I would guess that Catching Fire will come out in 2013 as well. Oh, and is Man of Steel coming out in 2013? I think so. I’ll have to see that too.

There aren’t really too many tv shows airing right now that I’m super excited to see return, but I do love Castle, Modern Family, Parks and Recreation, and How I Met Your Mother, and I’ll be glad to see some new episodes. (I didn’t realize how many of my favorite shows are sitcoms right now. That’s pretty unusual.) Warehouse 13 will get its second half of the season in April so there’s that too. I’ll most likely watch Supernatural and Revolution, but Supernatural has past its prime and Revolution hasn’t quite won me over yet. So maybe I watch more tv than I realized. Oh well.

Books. Holy crap are there a lot of books (both new and old) that I want to read this year. There are so many that I really shouldn’t even be writing this post. I should be reading, reading, reading. I think perhaps I’ll do a separate post with a more-or-less complete list of books that I want to read this year, but here are a few that I’m looking forward to: Cold Days by Jim Butcher, Stormbringer by Brandon Sanderson, Redshirts by John Scalzi, and continuing The Iron Druid Chronicles by Kevin Hearne.

Yeah, I think 2013 is going to be a good one.
