*Top Ten Tuesday* Top Ten Books I Read In 2013 - So Many To Choose From!

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish. Each week there is a new topic and we all share our thoughts on that topic! I decided it was finally time to jump on board with this wicked fun meme!

For this week on Top Ten Tuesday, the topic is:

Top Ten Books I Read in 2013!

This was a very hard list for me to get through. I read over 380 books in 2013, and didn't DNF anything. I found myself eagerly awaiting releases by some of my favorite authors, and enjoying new author releases that came out in 2013. I eagerly anticipate an even better 2014!

1.  Binding the Shadows (Arcadia Bell # 3) by Jenn Bennett
2. Written in Red (The Others # 1) by Anne Bishop
3. A Cursed Embrace (Weird Girls # 2) by Cecy Robson
4. Crown of Midnight (Throne of Glass # 2) by Sarah J Maas
5. The Dream Thieves (The Raven Cycle # 2) by Maggie Stiefvater
6. Cold Blooded (Jessica McClain # 3) by Amanda Carlson
7. The Archived (The Archived # 1) by Victoria Schwab
8. The Madman's Daughter by Megan Shepherd
9. Crewel (Crewel World # 1) by Gennifer Albin
10. The Hallowed Ones by Laura Bickle

Honorable Mentions:

Fire & Ash (Benny Imura # 4) by Jonathan Maberry
Descendant (Starling # 2) by Lesley Livingston
The Burning Sky (The Elemental Trilogy # 1) Sherry Thomas
Rose Under Fire by Elizabeth Wein

  1. So many amazing books on your list! I totally put Rose Under Fire on my list too! Gah, I just finished it and it was amazing. My heart still hurts a little bit just thinking about it!
    My TTT

  2. Now that is an accomplishment and with no DNF, wow.

  3. Wow, that's amazing! No DNFs. Awesome! :)

    My TTT :)

  4. Ooh nice! Cold Blooded was awesome! And wow 380 books?! I thought I was impressed with my 200+. Literally just stumbled over the 200 line and it was a struggle from that amount to remember which ones I read. I think I only DNF'd one or two. One book I know I really just skimmed because I couldn't get into it.

    Here's my Tuesday Post

    Have a GREAT day!

  5. I 100% agree with your # 1 and 2 picks, those ones made my list as well. Actually, Written in Red didn't because I just finished it and had already posted my top 10 but whatever. LOL Happy (almost) 2014!

  6. Wow. Thank you for this honor. I'm so touched A CURSED EMBRACE is among your top 10!

  7. I haven't read any of the books on your list, but I really want to read Written in Red and The Archived. Happy reading in 2014!

  8. Lots of amazing books on your list. I really want to read Crewel and The Madman's Daughter, both look really amazing. Happy New Year! Great picks :) My TTT.
