Top Ten Books I’ve Read So Far In 2013

June 25, 2013 meme, TTT 0

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created by one of my favourite blogs – http://brokeandbookish.blogspot.ie – if you are not reading this blog, then you should be!

This weeks theme is Top Ten Books I’ve Read So Far In 2013.  Thanks to the brilliance of Goodreads and my neatly filed ratings, this weeks TTT was a breeze. And it reminded me of the best features of doing TTT, it makes me remember all the great books I have had the pleasure of spending time with.

True : An emotional NA with characters that were authentic, true to life and got under my skin
After Forever Ends : An indie book that I adored.  It made me howl with laughter and later with tears and then with laughter again
Golden :  A powerful, intense and beautiful book about love and hope that has inspired me to examine my own life and to make some changes
Gone Girl : The only book where I hated every character but still loved the book.
Hopeless : The very first NA I read.  It took my breath away, I was not prepared for the emotional, intense journey that I had to go on.



The Curious Incident of the Dog at Nighttime – A reread to see if this book was as good as I remembered.  The answer?  Yes!
Cinder : A Chinese Cinderella who is a mechanic and a cyborg in a dystopia setting.  Could this really compute into an enjoyable read?  Yes!  It could and it does.  
Daughter of Smoke and Bone : So original, so beautifully written and with such unique characters.  This is still my favourite read so far this year.
Slammed: When I read my first slam poem, I was shaking with emotion and adrenaline.  And I loved the twists, they slammed me right in the gut.
Sky Song : Another Indie that pleasantly surprised me.  Especially as it is a sci fi/fantasy mix which is a little outside my comfort zone.  I read it a few weeks ago and I need to read book 2 soon as I still thinking about the characters
