Top 13 Books of 2013

Every month I pick my favourite book, below are the 12 for this year. Plus one extra because 13 of 2013 sounds better. Well that’s my excuse. 😉

I loved all of these for different reasons; the writing, the imagery, the characters, etc so if you haven’t heard of them before I highly recommend you give them a go.

  1. I’ve read quite a few of them, thanks to you! 🙂 I have The Savages coming up really soon, which I’m excited about.

  2. Very cool – even though I haven’t read any of them! I actually have Savages sitting right next to me at the moment. Don’t know if I’ll be able to get to it in January or not though…. SO MANY BOOKS! GAH!

  3. Whoa – that Ghost Bride cover is a lot more lush than the one I have my hands on. I just finished it last night actually. It was a great read!
