Top Ten Books I've Read So Far In 2013
This list was pretty easy for me to do. I feel like this year books I've read were either AMAZING or they weren't. More so in previous years. Or maybe I'm just more discerning. Either way...here is my Top Ten:
1. Storm and Siege by Leigh Bardugo
I worship at the feet of Leigh Bardugo and her incredible Grishna trilogy. The second book was every bit as awesome as the first.
2. Where She Went by Gayle Forman
I truly loved the first book, "If I Stay", but something about this sequel really got to me. I think it the idea of how much grief touches everyone involved and what it means to be left behind.
3. Cinder by Marissa Meyers
I put off reading this book for so long but I ended up loving it! It was literally the most fun I've had reading in a long time.
4. Scarlet by Marissa Meyers
Not to be outdone by "Cinder", this sequel was even better! I loved the new characters and the new adventures.
5. Dark Triumph by R.L. LaFevers
This is another awesome sequel. Or really, more like a companion book since it takes place roughly at the same time as the first book, "Grave Mercy", but told from Sybella's POV. I loved getting to know Sybella and thought this was an excellent addition to the series.
6. Seraphina by Rachel Hartman
This book was different than I was expecting and I think that's a good thing. I loved this fantasy world and the characters. I thought Rachel Hartman did a great job with her dragons.
7. My Life Next Door by Huntley Fitzpatrick
I adored this book. It was the perfect summer read and gave me warm fuzzies, which is not an easy feat to do.
8. Unravel Me by Tahereh Mafi
Yet another amazing sequel. I think I liked this one better than the first too? I'm not sure. But I do know I loved it.
9. Prodigy by Marie Lu
Aaannnddd another sequel. Man, there have been some really awesome sequels this year so far. Marie Lu broke my heart with this one. Luckily she has one more book to put it back together.
10. The Space Between by Brenna Yovanoff
This book was just cool. It was atmospheric and well done. I loved the demonology and how she used all the demon myths and stories.
