Hosted by the girls @ The Broke & The Bookish, this week’s question:
Top Ten Books I’ve Read So Far In 2013
Kristina: Ahhh finally a list I hopefully won’t be repeating myself too much on. 🙂
1. Siege & Storm by Leigh Bardugo – Really? Further explanation is NOT needed.
2. Cinder by Marissa Meyer – Took me awhile to get to this one but it was sooooo good! I have Scarlet which I plan in reading in the next few weeks.
3. Me Before You by Jojo Meyes – Sad but I love it.
4. Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell – Gosh. The most EPIC hand holding EVER.
5. Through the Ever Night by Veronica Rossi – I read Never Sky late (right before this one) and I’m glad I went back and tried again since this has become a top series for me.
6. The Lost Prince by Julie Kagawa – I missed Ash so much! Glad I got to see him for a bit and I’m excited to see where this new spin on the story (and Ethan) go.
7. The Archived by Victoria Schwab – A great start to a new series!
8. Going Vintage by Lindsey Leavitt – One of our SC books and definitely a favorite for me this year. I’m really getting more into contemporaries and I’m glad since I didn’t normally before this year.
9. Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin – So proud of myself for reading this one! I’m reading (and hosting later) as part of a relaxed readalong with several other blogs. There is still plenty of time to join if you want to participate.
10. When You Were Here by Daisy Whitney – Great book! Started a bit slow for me but it was definitely worth the read and I would recommend to everyone.
1. Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell – This book was this year’s The Fault in Our Stars for me. Such a beautiful, inspiring story. If it caused me to give up my antisocial ways in order to put myself out there & meet the author, it’s definitely a great book.
2. Days of Blood and Starlight by Laini Taylor – Phenomenal. This book, though I liked it less than Daugher of Smoke and Bone, was very riveting. OH, what an ending!
3. The Clockwork Princess by Cassandra Clare – It was probably the book I was most anticipating this year and it definitely lived up to all my expectations and more.
4. My Life Next Door by Huntley Fitzpatrick – This was one that I thought I wouldn’t really like (I don’t know why!), but I loved it.
5. Forgotten by Catherine McKenzie – A fantastic book by an author I just stumbled upon recently. I have read two of her books and she has definitely become an auto-buy for me.
6. She’s Gone Country by Jane Porter – So much to love about this one. I think a lot of it had to do with the setting, a small Texas town, but I loved the heroine, who was strong and brave and didn’t back down when life tossed her lemons.
7. Nowhere but Home by Liza Palmer – I just finished this book yesterday. It was so much more than I was expecting. I cannot say how much I loved it. I will definitely be reading more of this author. (Also set in a small Texas town…)
8. Second Chance Summer by Morgan Matson – Another book I waited too long to read. This one made me cry, but it was so very well done.
9. The Madness Underneath by Maureen Johnson – Oh man, this book…the ending, especially, was completely unexpected and kinda made me mad, but I’m on board because I want to know what happens next.
10. Friends With Boys by Faith Erin Hicks – A graphic novel that was very charming and entertaining. I read it in 45 minutes. 🙂 It also made me wish there were sequels.
