Top Ten Books I Read in 2013

toptentuesday

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish!

You know, I went into this list expecting it to be a lot harder to pick. As it turns out, I got REALLY skimpy with my 5 star ratings this year! Wow. That’s just crazy. Here are almost ALL of the books I have 5 stars to this year!

Allegiant1. Allegiant (Divergent #3) by Veronica Roth

I don’t have this review up yet, but trust me when I do … I will have SO MANY WORDS. Words that I can’t even begin to spell out.

2. Shadows in the Silence (Angelfire #3) by Courtney Allison MoultonShadows in the Silence

Yet another series ender. I laughed. I cried. I cried a lot, but in all the right ways!

princess3. Clockwork Princess (The Infernal Devices #3) by Cassandra Clare

HOW. HOW DID YOU DO THAT CASSIE? I don’t– I can’t– I… I… Yeah. That happened. That was a thing that happened and TALK ABOUT TEARS IN EVERY WAY.

4. Crown of Midnight (Throne of Glass #2) by Sarah J. MaasCrown of Midnight

I don’t think I discovered one new author crush bigger than the one I have on Sarah. Seriously. If you like fantasy and haven’t read these yet you are doing it wrong. I’m even making my 400 level YA fantasy seminar read Throne of Glass next semester.

This book doesn’t have a review yet. Actually, it’s also not a book but a graphic novel. Either way, I fell in love with this in so many ways. It was just what I needed right when I needed it.

6. The Cadet of Tildor by Alex LidellCover Final CadetofTildor

No book quite captured my thrall quite like this one, right in January too! Once again, I say that all fans of Tamora Pierce and the like should read this book!

Mind Games7. Mind Games (Mind Games #1) by Kiersten White

I love me some Kiersten White, and of all the books by her that I read this year, this one is by far my favorite. Paranormalcy will always be in my heart, but I think I like this one even better!

8. Asunder (Newsoul #2) by Jodi MeadowsAsunder

They say you can’t judge a book by its cover, but that’s not the case with these books! The insides are just as beautiful as the outsides.

Speak9. Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson

I haven’t posted my review of this one yet, either, but I really can’t believe it’s taken me this long to read this. The amount that this book affected me is something that can never be put into words.

10. The Boyfriend App by Katie SiseThe Boyfriend App

Sometimes I like to read something just for some rollicking good fun. That was this book for me!

  1. The only ones of these books I’ve read are Allegiant and Clockwork Princess. While I did at least like Allegiant, it wasn’t enough to make my top 10 list. But Clockwork Princess definitely was. I’m not sure how you could read that book, and not instantly make it one of your favorites!

  2. Crown of Magic is EVERYTHING AMAZING IN THE WORLD!! Well, almost anyway. I haven’t read Allegiant yet, but if it made your TTT, it gives me hope! I often like unpopular ending books it would seem, so now that I know there is at least ONE person in the world who loved it, it might be possible! I haven’t read Clockwork Princess yet and I really should….I’m such a procrastinator haha! And I can’t believe it took you this long to get to Speak either! Definitely one of my favourite books 🙂
