Top Ten Books I've Read So Far In 2013

*Sees topic, goes to new tab and goes to Goodreads. Sees I've read 52 books this year and has no idea how to narrow it down.*

This was a hard question!! Like I said I've read 52 books so far this year and it's hard to decide! So, to help narrow it down a little I will not include re-reads. Which helped, a little. Click the link by the names to go to my review on it.

Incarnate by Jodi Meadows (Review)
I loved this book. I love how it was a love story with the relationship developing throughout the whole book. It was so great!!

Girl of Fire and Thorns by Rae Carson (Review
This was such a great fantasy!! It was amazing! That's all I can say. 

The Scarlet Pimpernel by Emmuska Orczy (Review
This is the classic that made me love classics. It was amazing and outstanding! 

Wait for You by Jennifer L. Armentrout (Review)
This shouldn't be a surprise, I love JLA's book and this one was amazing! 

Losing Francesca by J. A. Huss.
I got this as a review copy and loved, loved, loved it!! It was outstanding and fantastic. My review will be up July 17th

Leaving Paradise by Simone Elkeles (Review)
This is one of the rare contemporaries that I fell in love with. It was so sweet and sad and heartbreaking. It was amazing! 

Insomnia by J. R. Johansson (Review)
This was such a dark and haunting book! I just loved it! I never really read anything like it before and now I want to read ore dark books.

My Life Next Door by Huntley Fitzpatrick (Review)
This one didn't blow me away liked I thought it would, but it was still really fun to read and it was a great book!

Apollyon by Jennifer L. Armentrout (Review)
This wasn't my fav book in this series, but it was still a fantstic book!

Under the Never Sky by Veronica Rossi (Review)
I also had mixed feelings about this one, but it still had this tone to it that made me love it. It was great!

That's my list, what's yours?
Happy reading


  1. I read Girl of Fire and Thorns, it was really good, but didnt quite make my list. I havent read anything else on your list, I'd better get to it!

  2. Yes yes YES to My Life Next Door! Too bad I read that in 2012. I love everything about it from the characters to its humor.
    Great list Kimberly & thanks for stopping by my TTT! (:

  3. I loved The Scarlet Pimpernel too, such a great read!

    Yay for The Girl of Fire and Thorns - I ran out of room and put it on my honourable mentions list today, but it really is wonderful fantasy, and very well-written. I read Under the Never Sky a couple of weeks ago and am feeling a bit mixed about it: it's solid post-apocalyptic fantasy and yet, and yet... I have to write my review and hopefully then I'll understand what I think of it!

    I loved Leaving Paradise, and the sequel; Elkeles always delivers the goods! Lots of interesting books on your list for me to look into more.

    My TTT

  4. LOVELOVE Under the Never Sky! The sequel is even BETTER!! I also thought My Life Next Door was great. I still need to reading Leaving Paradise, I love Simone's Perfect Chemistry series. ALSO I have Incarnate on my kindle..maybe I should move that one up on my to-read list. Thanks for stopping by my blog :)
