Best Books of 2013

I feel like this is a post that's long overdue, but it's only the second week of January so I'm gonna go ahead and post this anyways. I didn't read as much as I would've like to in 2013, but I did read some pretty darn amazing books. I was pretty surprised to see these were all books I bought myself. I have great taste in books! *coughs* These are in no particular order. 

A Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin
Medieval soap opera filled with plenty of murder and mystery. I like. It took me 5 weeks to read it, but it was worth it! 

A Midsummer's Nightmare by Kody Keplinger
Kody once again managed to break my heart. In all the right ways, of course. 

All Our Yesterdays by Cristin Terrill
This book caused me to freak out. Many feels were involved while I read this book. The sequel might actually kill me. 

Graceling by Kristin Cashore
Probably one of the most intimidating books I've read this year, purely because of its reputation. But Graceling delivered and Katsa is one badass motherfucker. 

If You Find Me by Emily Murdoch 
Oh, my poor heart.. The journey of Carey really had me on the edge of my seat. Again, many feels were involved.

Meant to Be by Lauren Morrill
The only audiobook on this list. Gods, this was amazing. It was like I was in London again, but now with two people in the best hate/love relationship you can imagine. Absolutely wonderful. 

Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell
If there is one book you take off this list to read, let it be Eleanor & Park. The development in this relationship is out of this world and Rainbow truly knows how to create massive chemistry. This book is a bundle of feels.

Pivot Point by Kasie West
Having never read a parallel universe kind of book, this kind of blew me away. There was just no way I could stop reading until I got to the very last page, causing me to wail in agony that I would have to wait for the sequel. 

Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo
Oh, Darkling, how you messed with my feelings.. I read this book in one sitting and it was all sorts of marvellous. 

The Bone Season by Samantha Shannon
With amazingly complicated worldbuilding, this book was hard to get into. But it was so worth it to struggle through those first few chapters, because otherwise I would never have met Warden. Sigh. 

The Night Itself by Zoë Marriott
When Zoë told me this book was completely different from her other books, I wasn't sure what she meant. But I see it now, and this book is even better than her other books I've read. I cannot wait to dive deeper into Mio's world. 

The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight by Jennifer E. Smith
One of the two best fluffy contemporaries I've read in 2013, coincidentally also set (for the most part) in London. I regret nothing. 


What were your favorites of 2013?

  1. Yay for Pivot Point and Shadow and Bone! They were two of my favorite books I read in 2013. I had never read a book with parallel universe before and I didn't know what to expect so it blew me away too! I'm so glad the sequel is out next month!
    And I still don't know what to think of the Darkling. I do know I'm not shipping him with Alina for now, but who knows, maybe I will after reading Siege and Storm. Which I must do soon. I can't wait to meet that Stormhund that I've been hearing so much about.
    Eleanor & Park, If You Find Me and All Our Yesterdays are still on my wishlist. Good to know you love them! :)
