2013 is almost over! Who can believe it?!
It's been a brilliant year filled with tonnes of amazing books. Having reached my Goodreads reading goal of 500 books, I have to say it was a tad daunting picking just thirteen books. But, I have taken on the challenge...and will now present you all with my Top 13 Books of 2013.
(This list does not include any of the ARCs I've read that will be published in 2014. Those may feature on next year's list)
#13.) Acid by Emma Pass
An incredible book that matches its gorgeous cover, Acid has so much potential. It pushes the dystopian genre to new heights, and introduces readers to a feisty heroine who is as strong as her last name suggests.
#12.) Unremembered by Jessica Brody
Who is she?
Where does she come from?
The concept of time travel has never been more addictive. Unremembered was a roller coaster of a read - never a lull, never a dull moment. An enticing mix of romance and action, it was a definitely one of the highlights of my reading year.
#11.) The Girl with the Iron Touch by Kady Cross
#10.) The Highwayman of Tanglewood by Marcia Lynn McClure
This highwayman will steal more than your riches...he'll steal your heart.
#9.) The Falconer by Elizabeth May
Heiress. Debutant. Murderer. A new generation of heroines has arrived.
The Falconer is a refreshing combination of steampunk and fae mythology. It gives us a spectacularly flawed heroine, a dangerous love interest and plenty of witty dialogue to accompany the swordplay and magical battles.
All in all, an absolute treat to read.
#8.) Salvation by Skyla Madi
There are stories about angels. And then there's Skyla Madi's Guardian Angel series.
Move over Fallen! Salvation brings a great twist on the angelic legend, as well as a romance that will be tested against the storms of society, war, loyalties and powers beyond our understanding.
#7.) Confessions of an Almost-Girlfriend by Louise Rozett
#6.) Geek Girl by Holly Smale
It's going to take more than a mathematical formula to solve this problem...
You haven't read a book until you've read Holly Smale's Geek Girl. Fresh, funny, and full of quirky goodness, this is a book for everyone who needs a laugh...or needs to be reminded about what truly matters in life. With a loveable protagonist, Geek Girl is definitely a Cinderella story like no other.
From geek to chic, Harriet Manners is in for the ride of her life!
#5.) Pivot Point by Kasie West
#4.) Sentinel by Jennifer L Armentrout
#3.) Rebel Spring by Morgan Rhodes
#2.) Crown of Midnight by Sarah J Maas
#1.) Whirl by Emma Raveling
