The Best Books of 2013

booksI’m a little late in posting this, so forgive me. Every year, I choose my 10 favourite books from the year. I read way more than ten books of course, but to be considered on the list, the book has to be published within the year. I’ve read near one hundred books this year but these were the ones that stood out as the cream of the cop of the year.

Where an author had more than one book published in the year, I put them all on the list. Choosing one book from what the author put out was near impossible, so they all get included. Where I’ve reviewed the book, I’ve included a link to that review.

Reading brings me such joy, but these are the books I’ve read more than once this year. The Drowning of Arthur Braxton? Read it once in eBook and twice in paperback. Joyland? Read it four times. Cupcakes and Christmas at Carrington’s? Read them four times a piece. Picture Me Gone and This Wicked Game? Twice apiece.

These are the books I went back to again and again this year because of how good they were, the joy they brought me. So read them read them read them, for they are awesome.

You’ll notice there are fourteen books This time around. Hey, it just seemed right. I wanted to welcome in 2014!
