Top Ten Tuesday: Books I Read In 2013

So, I know just yesterday I gave you guys my End of Year Survey (please, check it out if you haven’t!) but here, I wanted to give you guys a simplified version of my top reads of the year, and maybe mention a book or two I didn’t in the survey.

I decided to pull books from my 5-Star ratings of the year. Yes, I did cheat a little on a few, but I HAD TO! :) Let us see what I came up with!

1. Where the Stars Still Shine by Trish Doller (My Review)

2. My Life Next Door (My Life Next Door #1) by Huntley Fitzpatrick (My Review)

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

4. Me Before You by Jojo Moyes

5. Truly by Ruthie Knox

6. Stir Me Up by Sabrina Elkins (My Review)

7. Things I Can’t Forget (My Review) & Racing Savannah by Miranda Kenneally

8. Champion (Legend, #3) by Marie Lu


9. The Best Man (Blue Heron #1) (My Review) & The Perfect Match (Blue Heron, #2) (My Review) by Kristan Higgins

10. Just One Day (Just One Day, #1) (My Review) & Just One Year (Just One Day, #2) (My Review) by Gayle Forman


Dash & Lily’s Book of Dares by Rachel Cohn, David Levithan – I JUST finished this one and I have to include it because OOOH MY GAH! What a fun book!! I laughed a lot and it was really cute! So glad I could get this one in on time!

    Jess, I haven’t read any of these! BUT, one of these has been on my list for forever and it was recently gifted to me, so I hope to get to it very soon: MY LIFE NEXT DOOR. Great list, and Happy New Year!

    There are so many here I want to comment on but I’d be talking all day but YES to the Blue Heron, right?? Also, I’ve picked up Champion so many times – I’ve carried it around the house, I’ve let it sit in my lap, and I’ve tried to get used to it being in my hands BUT I’M SO SCARED. I really didn’t think the finale fear would rear its ugly head this time but OMG IT HAS! I need to suck it up but I’m having a really tough time with it – what am I gonna do when the Laini Taylor releases? OH DEAR.

    Great list, though. Seriously!

    Loving the Miranda Kenneally love! Her stuff is fabulous. Her next year’s book is the best yet in my opinion.

    Great list!

    Trish Doller! Gayle Forman! Kristan Higgins! I’ve come to expect these authors as your favorites & I couldn’t agree more!! It’s been a great year for contemporary reads & I can NOT wait for 2014!!! Happy New Year, Jess xo.

    I just got My Life Next Door the other day! Super excited for it. :o)

    Hope you are having a great new years eve!! I’m staying in tonight. 5 year old is in bed, time for mommy to crack open the kindle and stuff my face with popping corn. Not to be confused with regular corn, because that shit is nasty.

    Great list. You’ve got some really amazing books on your list – Champion and My Life Next Door made my list too. I really want to read Where The Stars Still Shine and some Miranda Kenneally, have heard amazing things about both. Happy New Year :) My TTT.
