Top Ten Tuesday / June 25, 2013

Top Ten Tuesday banner

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish to show off our book-related lists!

It’s been a good year for books! I’ve read 33 so far this year and to be honest I’ve enjoyed pretty much all of them all in their own special way. I’ve narrowed it down to books that were published/are going to be published in 2013. Here are my favourite books so far this year:

Top Ten Books

I’ve Read So Far in 2013


TTT02 Clockwork Princess by Cassandra Clare

Fab ending to a fab series (and made me weep like a baby at the end). Best love triangle ever.


TTT02 The Savages

Dark comedy at its finest. Loved the Savages and their not-so-traditional diet.


TTT02 The Oathbreaker's Shadow

Truly exceptional world-building. Loved the unique Mongolian inspiration and the promise knots.


TTT02 All Our Yesterdays

Heart-pounding, time-travelling mind bender that’s an amazing mix of action, great characters and love.


TTT02 Angelfall

Vivid and gritty, Penryn and Raffe dragged my heart through the ringer in this scary dystopian world.


TT02 Perfect Scoundrels

You can’t really go wrong with a Heist Society book, and this one had an added dose of Hale!



Evocative novel with one of my favourite narrators in a long time. Carey and her story were exceptional.


TTT02 The Screaming Staircase

Been excited for this ever since it was announced and it completely lived up to all my expectations. Spooky, mysterious and the best book trio since Harry Potter.


TTT02 Wonder

I laughed, I cried, it was the wonder of Wonder indeed. BIG HUGS to Auggie and all his family and friends.


TTT02 Siege and Storm

It only needs one word. STURMHOND.


Special mentions to Pandemonium by Lauren Oliver (the action!), The Fault in Our Stars by John Green (the FEELS!), Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell (the sweetness!) who were published in earlier years but I only had the pleasure of reading in 2013.

What was your favourite book this year?

  1. Clockwork Princess made my list. I sobbed throughout it, too. One of the most heart-wrenching finales to a series ever!

  7. Renae M. says:

    Perfect Scoundrels and If You Find Me! Both of those books are wonderful. I love how Ally Carter can make me not care about a slightly unrealistic plot line, and If You Find Me was so full of FEELS, haha.

    I can't wait to read If You Find Me and All Our Yesterdays! I've heard both books are great, so I'm really looking forward to reading them soon. I'm also really excited for Siege and Storm, I read Shadow and Bone earlier this year and loved it, so I can't wait to see what the sequel has in store for me!

    Clockwork Princess seems like a really book today! I'm also currently reading Shadow and Bone! I'm pretty sure I'm going to read Siege and Storm though because so far the book is awesome!

    SO happy you like Lockwood & Co – it's scary stuff huh? You wait til you see the video trailer – talk about frightening!

  14. SnugglingontheSofa says:

    I've only read 2 of these, which may be why I'm missing all the excitement! OBVIOUSLY I'll be reading The Oathbreaker's Shadow at some point, and I have Lockwood from Faye to read soon too. I'm really excited for All Our Yesterdays!

    Sturmhond is definitely my favorite part of Siege & Storm! I need him in my life. PERIOD. I'm also really excited about All Our Yesterdays + The Screaming Staircase after seeing that you loved both. They're coming up in my reading pile fairly soon (or not, we'll see)!
