Top Ten Books I’ve Read So Far In 2013
1. ‘Unearthly’ by Cynthia Hand
This is my most favorite series ever, I can’t choose one particular book! I love everything about them. They have a well-developed plot, amazing characters and good writing. I read all the three books in the beginning of the year and have already gone back to reread my most favorite parts. This is also the only book series among others that I really want to see a movie adaptation of, hope it will be made sometime in the future.
2. ‘Across the Universe’ by Beth Revis
Another good series, that I really enjoyed reading. It has a very unique and exciting plot, I was totally impressed by the whole idea of such a long adventure through space. I may not be just as in love with the characters, but among all those unexpected plot twists this was not that important. Also five stars to the gorgeous covers!
3. ‘Rose Strickland Mystery’ by Terri L. Austin
This book series is yet another hit for me! Great characters and very entertaining story. Such a fun read! I can’t wait for the continuation!
4. ‘Anna And The French Kiss’ by Stephanie Perkins
Ah… Falling in love in Paris… What could be more beautiful and romantic? I really liked this book. And St.Clair? He was just a sweetheart and a perfect boyfriend. Too bad I didn’t feel the same about the second book in this series, but there’s the third one coming out, so I’m excited!
5. ‘Wait For You’ by J.Lynn
I got disappointed with the second book in Jennifer L. Armentrout’s ‘Onyx’ series, but when I learned that ‘Wait For You’ is also written by her, I really wanted to check it out. And I ended up really loving it. That’s a good romance story with very likeable main characters. It’s actually also a series, so, needless to say, I’m on for the next book!
6. ‘The Girl You Left Behind’ by Jojo Moyes
Just like ‘Me Before You’, this was another impressive book by Jojo Moyes. I find her one of the best authors nowadays, her writing is so thoughtful and really beautiful. And her books are among those that I would recommend to everyone.
7. ‘Little Women’ by Louisa May Alcott
A beautiful and heartwarming story that one can’t not love. No bad things to say about it.
8. ‘The Shining’ by Stephen King
I’ve been wanting to read Stephen King for such a long time, and ‘The Shining’ was the first one I read, mostly because I watched the movie a long time ago and really liked it. This book was such a revelation for me, I absolutely loved King’s writing. Besides, it’s my first experience reading a horror book, so I was totally blown away.
9. ‘Ready Player One’ by Ernest Cline
This one is an absolutely fresh and interesting idea of a future, where people’s life is mostly spent in a virtual reality. It was a bit hard for me to imagine what it would be like to actually live that way, but Ernest Cline did his best. Amazing plot, based on a quest, which was so fun to read. I have only good memories about this book.
10. ‘The Host’ by Stephenie Meyer
I admit, I liked ‘Twilight’ when I first read it. But in general I wasn’t impressed by Stephenie Meyer as a writer. ‘The Host’, though, totally redeemed her in my eyes, as I was so engrossed in the story, and the writing was much improved. This is also supposed to be a series, so whenever Meyer gets to release the sequel, I’m going to get my hands on it.
