Best Books I've read in 2013
This event runs for five consecutive days, the last full week of the year – Monday, December 23rd to Friday, December 27th. Five days in which we share of some of our favorite lists and we invite ALL of YOU to join in on the fun and share your lists with everyone too! It is hosted by FIKTshun , Magical Urban Fantasy Reads , and Two Chicks on Books.
Today is the Best Books I’ve Read in 2013 (Doesn’t have to be released in 2013, just a book you’ve read in 2013). So here is my list in no particular order:
The Diviners by Libba Bray. I really enjoyed this book.. it is long but worth it if you take the time to sit down and read it. I am trying to not start anymore series but my book club picked this one so I joined in and enjoyed it.
Bittersweet by Sarah Ockler. So glad I read this cute book! I don't normally read contemporary book but I am glad I did. This was another book club pick.. sometimes you can just discover great books through book clubs that you may not have picked up at any other time.
Fables by Bill Willingham. I am so glad I started this graphic novel series this year. Apparently it's been around a long time so at least most of the graphic novels are already published. It's a really good fairytale retelling.
Horns by Joe Hill. I love love this book. I am a King fan so when I heard about his son writing books I knew I needed to read them. I kept putting it off and finally just read this one and thought it was great!
Siege and Storm by Leigh Bardugo is book 2 in the Grisha young adult book series. I have been doing my best to keep up with book series and not fall behind. This was a really good book 2!
Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell. Here is another book club pick that I read and loved. Now I have discovered a new author where I want to read everything she writes!
Days of Blood and Starlight by Laini Taylor is another book 2 in a trilogy. I loved it. I think this is a really neat series and most people I have seen doing reviews on it love it also.
Legend by Marie Lu is another series I started this year but luckily the whole series came out this year so I don't have to wait too long for the next books!
The Arrival by Shaun Tan is a beautiful graphic novel. As some of you know I am always looking for a graphic novel that is outside the box and this one fits perfect. Check out my review to see the amazing art work.
The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey is another series I started this year... but this book is very good. I am glad to have joined in this journey!
What about you... what were the best books you read in 2013???
