    I haven’t read any of these, but I have been really wanting to read The Darkest Minds, Shadow and Bone, and Masque of the Red Death!

  3. Nikki says:

    Great list! Your top ten is reminding me of all the books I didn’t get to this year! I’ve got to read them. So many amazing books to choose from.

    I can’t believe I haven’t read any of these, though I own several of them. I have some catching up to do! Shadow and Bone and The Darkest Minds are two I want to read soon. Hope 2013 is another great reading year for you!

  5. Katie says:

    I still haven’t read some of these, but I’m looking forward to reading your reviews of them!

    I love your wordpress theme! It’s adorable! I’m happy to see The Darkest Minds on your list as I loved it, too. i can’t wait to get my hands on Gravy Mercy.

    Congrats on discovering the Gallagher Girls. That series is an all time favorite! The Mark of Athena is my favorite Riordan book ever, though that cliffhanger is killing me…I still need to read Grave Mercy. I even own it! Such a slacker. Great list!

  8. I forgot about The Night Circus! That was a really good read, as well Shadow and Bone. Definitely need to read some of these picks!

  9. Lucia says:

    Shadow and Bone and Ordinary Magic were also two of my favorites of the year. I really liked the premise of the Gallagher Girls book more than the book. I sort of liked the concept of how ‘Ords’ had to learn to cope in Ordinary Magic more than supergirls but thats just me. But i wrote down all the picks – off to the book store!

Thanks for visiting! I love receiving comments and do my best to respond to all of them. However, due to time constraints, this blog is now an award and tag free zone. I really appreciate the thought, but just don't have the time to pass them on.
