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 (Lunar Chronicles, #1)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 (The Grisha, #1)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 (Pink Carnation, #10)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…

WonderWonder 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…

Clockwork Angel (The Infernal Devices, #1)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 (The Heroes of Olympus, #4)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 (Thursday Next, #7)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….

Delirium (Delirium, #1)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.

FearlessFearless 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 (The Books of Beginning, #2)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??

  1. I LOVED the Grisha books – I read both in about three days. I can’t wait for Ruin and Rising this summer!

  2. Buchheldin says:

    Everyone must read this “Wonder”! Yeah, you’re right! 😀 It is such a great book.

  3. I have only read Cinder and S&B out of all these novels, and I think they are both amazing! 😀 I am almost certain they made my version of this list, actually!
    I desperately need to read The Infernal Devices, and the Delirium books. I even own them! But there are always other books that grab my attention. My TBR is overflowing!
