Top Ten Books I've Read so Far in 2013

Top Ten Tuesday is a meme created by The Broke and the Bookish

I haven't read nearly as many books this year as I would like and yet, it was really hard to limit myself to ten books :)

1.  Just One Day by Gayle Forman - My goddness is this one good!  Truly an amazing story of growth and self discovery. See my review here

2.  Under the Never Sky by Veronica Rossi - I adore dystopian and, although it took me forever to read this one (thanks Hannah!), I will make up the lost time in undying love.  See my review here

3.  Dark Triumph by Robin LaFevers - I swear that LaFevers can do no wrong.  Even if you have never read historical fiction, you should give this series a try, you will not regret it!  See my review here

4.  Sweet Peril by Wendy Higgins - This is one of the best sequels ever!  I adore Kaidan and the story and everything else. So, so good :)  See my review here

5.  Parasol Protectorate by Gail Carriger -  So this is more than one book since I finished books #2 - #5 this year.  Outstanding world building, characterization and writing makes this an amazing (adult) series.  The best of Steampunk!  

6.  The Collector by Victoria Scott - Oh Dante, how I love thee!  A wonderful book with wonderful characters.  See my review here

7.  Obsidian by Jennifer Armentrout  - I know, I know... why did it took me so long to start the Lux series!  Another bad boy that I adore, an alien story like no other.  See my review here

8.  Shadow & Bone by Leigh Bardugo - I love to read fantasy and this book is one of the best in the genre.  Amazing story full of magic, incredible characters and an ancient fight of good and evil!  See my review here

9.  Angelfall by Susan Ee - Another unique dystopian mixed with angels and the struggle for survival.  So awesome!  See my review here

10.  Goddess Inheritance by Aimée Carter - A fit conclusion for a beloved series, everything that I wanted and then some. See my review here

11.  Crown of Embers by Rae Carson - This is definitely one of my favorite series of all time!  Eliza is one of the best heroines ever written, I cannot wait for book three!  See my review here

Sorry I went over guys, but I couldn't bring myself to shorten the list!  

What's in your Top Ten this week?


  1. I can't wait to read Angelfall. I've just bought it. Great list!

  2. I loved Angelfall as well, and I can't wait to read the 2nd book in that series! Several others I have on my TBR because I haven't had time to read the yet...

    Here's my TTT post for this week.

    Happy reading Liza :)

  3. The Crown of Embers was one of my favorite reads of last year and The Bitter Kingdom will be on my Top 10 list at the end of this year. (I didn't put it on my TTT today because I decided not to count ARCs, but it is such a perfect end to the trilogy.)

    Just One Day almost made my list too, but I was quite ruthless about keeping mine to 10. If I wasn't it would have 30 books on it. :)

    My TTT

    1. I can't wait to get my hands on The Bitter Kingdom!!!
      **looking with envy**

  4. I think half our lists are the same - clearly you have good taste :)

  5. So many great books! Ijust finished Goddess Inheritance. It was pretty great!

  6. Just One Day and Under the Never Sky are both favorites of mine!!

    My TTT

  7. Shadow and Bone was such an amazing book! I really need to read Just One Day, I bought it when it first released and STILL haven't gotten round to it. I'll definitely bump it up my TBR pile now I see it on your list today.

    Thanks for stopping by my Top Ten!

  8. Great top ten! I'm currently reading under the never sky, I hope I like it too:)
