Top 13 Books of 2013

 Out of the 150 books I've read this year, these are my top thirteen picks of this year. It was a challenge to choose thirteen since I loved so much other books. But these were the books that struck out to me the most. I hope you all enjoy! Btw, some of these weren't published this year.

Altered by Jennifer Rush

This book reminds me of my all-time favourite tv show, Prison Break. I swear as I was reading this, I felt like I was being brought back to that show. I devoured every single page of this book.

I can't describe how awesome this book was. The main reason why I picked up this book was because of the cover. The yellow clothing that the models wear definitely stands out. Aside it from being a pretty cover, this book was fantastic.

I'm so glad that this book was even better than the first one. I wasn't a fan of the first one, but this one has me so hooked on the series that I keep debating whether to pre-order the third and final book, Evertrue.

I'm kind of embarrassed to say this, but this book had me crying a river. I had to switch my blankets and pillowcases because they were soaked in tears. I just kept crying and crying over Gem's POV. I've never read such a raw, emotional male POV. I just love this book and I would highly recommend it.

Okay, this may not be the prettiest cover, but this book was just amazing. Fantastic characters. Beautiful descriptive writing. After completing Nevermore and its sequel, Enshadowed, I will definitely be pre-ordering the next book. (fyi, I never pre-order books.)

Have you read a book that was just perfect? This book was just outstandingly perfect. Time Between Us is not just a contemporary book, but it was a hint of time travel. Not only loving the plot, but I adored the love interest, Bennett. Just thinking about him makes me want to sigh.

This book was hilarious. I loved the characters and especially Office After. It may seem like a fluffy romance, but actually, it's much deeper than that. I was highly impressed by this book, causing me to buy several of Jennifer Echol's other books.

I had no idea what I was getting into when I read, but you guys, this book was just fantastic. Writing was incredible. The characters were loveable. And the plot was so intriguing. 

I love second chance romances. Seeing former couples rekindle just warms my heart. The love that Reena and Sawyer was messy, but what they had was definitely a strong one. One of the best debuts I've read this year.

Unearthly by Cynthia Hand

One of my friends who ever rarely reads recommended this book, so I decided to give a try. Oh boy, this book was just amazing! Angel books are a hit or miss for me, but this book definitely hit bulls eye. I just love the love interest, Tucker <3.

The main reason I read this was because this was a freebie on Amazon. I can't tell how much of a gem this was. Fight of Flight was an extremely surprising read for me. I still re-read my favourite scenes from time to time. I love it too much!

 The Iron Queen by Julie Kagawa

Julie has become one of my all-time faovurite authors. I've read all of her books except for her spinoff series of the Iron Fey. The Iron Queen is my favorite of the series. If I wasn't in a public place, I would have been crying my eyes out. This book was just amazing.
