13 is the Luckiest Number
…at least for publishers, apparently.
Is it just me, or does it seem like we’re seeing a lot of the number 13 these days? A sample of recent releases:
13 Words by Lemony Snicket
13 Treasures by Michelle Harrison
The Blade of Shattered Hope (The 13th Reality, Book 3) by James Dashner
Thirteen Plus One by Lauren Myracle
Thirteen Days to Midnight by Patrick Carman
Can a number be a trend?
