Top Ten Books of 2013
Hosted by the Broke and the Bookish
I read so many wonderful books this year it was hard to pick just 10..but here ya go:
Cinder/Scarlet by Marissa Meyer (YA Fantasy/Fairiytale)
I expect these are many, many lists this year. They’re amazing and Marissa Meyer is wonderful 🙂
Shadow and Bone/Siege and Storm by Leigh Bardugo (YA Fantasy)
So addictive. I didn’t sleep the few nights it took to read these. I just had to Keep. Reading.
The Passion of the Purple Plumeria by Lauren Willig (Adult Historical Fiction/Romance)
I love Lauren Willig. Every time a new bok by her comes out, it feels like Christmas and I know I’m in for a special treat. I always try to make the books last a week, but end up staying up all night and finishing them in a couple days…
Wonder by R.J. Palacio (Junior Fiction)
Everyone must read this book! Haven’t reviewed it yet, but it’s A-Mazing! Forces readers to look at how they treat people and will most likely make you a better person for reading it…
Infernal Devices Series by Cassandra Clare (Review to come…I’m still recovering from the emotional rollercoaster (YA Fantasy)
Started and finished this trilogy over my Holiday break…and I am still an emotional wreck because of it…In a good way. I am in love with Clare’s writing! Please write faster Ms. Clare !!!
The House of Hades by Rick Riordan (Junior Fiction)
Like Willig, with Riordan every book is a treat and this was no exception. I used reading a chapter of this book as a reward system for writing a page of my school papers… It was such an epic story!
The Woman Who Died A Lot by Jasper Fforde (Adult Fiction Fantasy)
I love this series and frankly, I don’t think I will ever get tired of Thursday Next. This one was the most hilarious out of all of them for me so far. I quote from it daily….
The Delirium Trilogy by Lauren Oliver (YA Fiction Dystopian)
I loved this trilogy…and the ending was much better for me than the Divergent trilogy. It focused more on feelings than actions, but I love the way that Oliver writes.
Fearless by Cornelia Funke (YA Fantasy/Fairytale)
Cornelia Funke is spectacular. This book (2nd in a series) is haunting and exciting, yet beautiful. I love the worlds that Funke can transport me to.
The Fire Chronicle by John Stephens (JF Fantasy)
Great action packed series! I love the world it’s set in and the characters are awesome…wish the third book would hurry up though 🙂
There you have it. My top 10 for 2013. Any of the same? Strongly disagree with some??
