Top Ten Books Read in 2013 (so far)
These are in no particular order, just doing a big conglomeration of happiness. And I feel like I've got quite a few coming up on my to-be-read pile that might squirm their way in here and nudge out a few. (And I'm only doing 7 unfortunately. I haven't read too many kick ass books this year yet, which is disappointing. But I have a lot up next that I'm hoping will win my heart back.)
1. The Thirteenth Tale by Diane Setterfield. This is my all-time favorite book, and I reread it this year. So good. Everyone should read this, especially book lovers.
2. Paper Towns by John Green. John Green book 1 of 2 on this list. His prose is phenomenal. And I love how his premises are ordinary, but he makes his characters and their growth extraordinary.
3. Under the Dome by Stephen King. I'm in the middle of this right now, and the mini series premiered last night. Haven't watched it yet. But guys, this book is outstanding. It's long, but so worth it.
4. Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell. I know this made a lot of people's lists. But it is a perfect representation of how love kind of takes over everything else, and nothing else matters.
5. As You Wish by Jackson Pearce. I just finished this yesterday, and my review should be up soon. It's not particularly literary or complicated, it was just super cute and I flew through it in a day.
6. The Fault in Our Stars by John Green. This is pretty much a given. I think I actually read this in the winter time of 2012, but I just had to put it on this list.
7. The Nightmare Affair by Mindee Arnett. This was another super fun, super cute read that was just downright hilarious.
Hopefully soon I'll have better things to put on this list. I didn't realize I hadn't read too many great ones until I tried to make this. That's sad. Oh well, hopefully soon.
