The New Year is upon us! 2013 is officially over! Can you believe that?! I can’t. Well, it’s time for my top 13 books of 2013 that I read. Surprisingly, it wasn’t too hard to pick, but in no particular order…
Hopeless by Colleen Hoover: This is my first book by her, and she is one of the most talented NA Contemporary writers ever. The romance isn’t your usual steamy one– in fact, it’s not really steamy at all. It’s more powerful and hearth-wrenching then the typical NA books.
The Fault in Our Stars by John Green: I read this one this year. Yes, it took me THAT long. I didn’t bawl my eyes out, but it was still amazing.
Easy by Tammara Webber: This New Adult definitely stands out from the rest because IT’S TAMMARA WEBBER. She’s just skilled that way.
Bruised by Sarah Skilton: I’m sad that most people have never heard of this book. It’s a dark contemporary, but it’s also very uplifting.
Looking for Alaska by John Green: I also read this one this year. I’M A LITTLE LATE ON THE JG TRAIN, OKAY?
Where the Stars Still Shine by Trish Doller: I will read anything by Trish Doller. LOVED THIS ONE.
Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell: duh.
The Beginning of Everything by Robyn Schneider: Robyn’s writing style really reminded me of John Green’s, but it’s also unique from his. I loved the main character Ezra in this book, and it’s a thought-provoking type of read for sure.
8/13 of my favorites for 2013 were contemporaries… does that make me a contemporary person? Onto the dystopians/fantasy!
The Program by Suzanne Young: Suzanne Young surprised me with this one. I wasn’t a huge fan of her other novel, A Need So Beautiful, but this dystopian world that she created was so well done and THE ROMANCE ❤
More Than This by Patrick Ness: This goes into the “other” category because it doesn’t exactly fit into any category at all. Patrick Ness will always be a favorite author of mine. I loved this book.
These Broken Stars by Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner: the cover. The story. Everything about this book is perfect.
Into the Still Blue by Veronica Rossi: So glad I was book-pushed to read Under the Never Sky, because this series conclusion was perfect and gah I loved it so much. Love you Veronica!
Crown of Midnight by Sarah J. Maas: OMG you guys this series. I don’t usually dig fantasies but FEUOPFPAJDJAER. Chaol. Celaena. I can’t. Chelaena.
The Madman’s Daughter by Megan Shepherd: I gave this one 4.5 stars when I read it, but I noticed that throughout the year, I’ve been book-pushing this book all around! I loved everything about this book: the Gothic tone, the romance, and the horror. SO AWESOME.
So there you have it! My top 13 of 2013! If you have a post, please link it to me! I need to make a “must read for 2014” shelf on Goodreads. 😉
