Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Books I've Read So Far In 2013
brought to you by: the broke and the bookish
1. My Fairest Beauty by Melanie Dickerson: Fairytale retellings are so much fun and this one doesn't disappoint.
2. The Tutor's Daughter by Julie Klassen: I'm a big fan of historical fiction and Julie Klassen is one of my favorite authors. This book reminded me a little of Jane Eyre. It started off kind of slow but once I got into it I couldn't put it down.
3. Once a Witch and Always a Witch by Carolyn MacCullough: I love books about witches. This series also included time travel which is another favorite genre of mine.
4. The False Prince and The Runaway King by Jennifer A. Nielsen: These books were fantastic. I read them to my girls and they would beg me to read another chapter. They even had me reread passages because of how funny the main character is. I highly recommend reading them both. The only downfall is the last book in the trilogy doesn't come out till March 2014.
5. Pushing the Limits by Katie McGarry: I'm not a hug fan of YA contemporary but all the positive reviews of this book pulled me in. I enjoyed Noah and Echo's story and am looking forward to reading Beth's story next.
6. Divergent by Veronica Roth. This book took me a little while to get into, but about half way in, I was hooked. I still need to read the second book, but I am holding off until the third one comes out.
7. The Light Between Oceans b ML Stedman. I don't normaly pick books like this. I tend to gravitate towards fantasy, or YA, or Jane Austen. But I read some great reviews on this book and wanted to give it a try, and was glad that I did. It's not a happy book by any means, but it is a book that makes you think!
8. Chalice by Robin McKinley. I love Robin Mckinley and was exicted to see some new books by her. I liked this one, it had her old flair in it, which I had been missing.
9. Unearthly. By Cynthia Hand. I haven't been a huge fan of Angels and Fallen Angels, and their half angel off spring..but I liked this book. It was interesting and I would give this series a go.
10. A Monstrous Regiment of Women (Mary Russel #2) by Laurie R King. I loved the first book in this series, The Beekeepers Apprentice. It's about Sherlock Holmes after retirment. And a young women very much Sherlock, but who is suprising in a lot of ways as well. I liked the second book. It was entertaining. I enjoy the relationship between Holmes and Russel.
