Top Ten Tuesday- Top Ten Books So Far in 2013

Top Ten Tuesday is a really cool original feature/weekly meme created over at The Broke and The Bookish. Each week they post a new Top Ten List that bloggers join in on answering... and today (June 25th), I'm one of them :)



 Today's Topic:

Top Ten Books I've Read So Far In 2013


I've only read 28 books so far... and that's a little disappointing!  My goal was 100 this year and that definitely isn't going to happen.  If I don't pick up the pace I won't even read as many as I did in 2012 :(  Anyway here are the books I adored.... seems like a lot of mystery-types w/ supernatural elements to them.  Kind of weird since I'm strictly a YA Contemporary girl.  I do like going out of my comfort-zone though!




1.  My Life Next Door by Huntley Fitzpatrick- LOVED this book... it might be my favorite for the whole year... it's going to be tough to beat.
2.  Looking for Alaska by John Green- John Green is genius!
3.  Notes from Ghost Town by Kate Ellison- A cool mystery
4.  Thousand Words by Jennifer Brown- I liked that it was about a relevant issue to teens today.
5.  The Sweet Revenge of Celia Door by Karen Finneyfrock- SO good!!  I loved the poetry!
6.  Shadowlands by Kate Brian- The twist practically killed me, but still I'm hooked!
7.  Hysteria by Megan Miranda- Another cool mystery
8.  The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin- I liked it a lot, although Mara pissed me off when Noah was around.
9.  Crash by Lisa McMann- I liked the family aspects of this book... and it also had a pretty interesting twist at the end that left me wanting more.
10.  I Hunt Killers by Barry Lyga- I wish I would've read this sooner... it was really good!


So there you have it... my fav 10 so far this year.  Can't wait to see what you guys have loved so far so I can get good ideas about what to read next :)

  1. My Life Next Door was such a gorgeous read! There are so many books on here that I still need to read, so the fact they made it to your list makes me more excited to start them! Great list Michelle!

  2. These books all look so gorgeous when you put their covers next to each other lik ethat!

    The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer and My Life Next Door are both books I'm eager to read - and knowing how much you enjoyed them just moves them closer to the top of my to-read pile :)

    Hope you have a great week

  6. For me Alaska was the weakest Green book, and Mara Dyer 2 was better than book one as well.
    Nice list.

  8. I Hunt Killers looks just like a book I would love. Since it's summer I've had my eye on My Life Next Door because it looks like a really fun, amazing book, and I think I'm going to have to go buy it soon so I can finally read it. I've heard so many amazing things about The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer and I have the series I just need to start it *adds to to-do list* Awesome list!!

    Thanks for stopping by! :)

  20. I still need to get to my TBR list and read a lot of these books, like The Sweet Revenge of Celia Door! There needs to be more time in the day devoted just to reading. :) Thanks for stopping by my TTT list!
