I have exactly three books on this list, and one of them may be wishful thinking. There are few living authors whose work I admire enough to keep track of publication dates, and the dead authors I admire don't have new publications (unfortunately). Also, my efforts to become better educated mean I'm reading less modern fluff. So here's my very short list for 2013:
1. Song of the Quarkbeast by Jasper Fforde (US release): This is the second book in the Chronicles of Kazam series, following The Last Dragonslayer, and although it's already out in UK, I'm looking forward to the US release so I can get it from the library.
2. The next book in the Mary Russell series by Laurie R. King: I have absolutely no proof that another MR book will be published next year, but considering that there's been one book per year 2009-2012, I'm hopeful.
3. Speaking from Among the Bones by Alan Bradley: This is the fifth book in the Flavia de Luce series, which chronicles the exploits of the eponymous 10-year-old chemist and detective. I won an advance copy through the LibraryThing Early Reviewers program, so I'm reading this 2013 release in 2012.
