I may have not had read as many books as I would have liked this year, but that doesn’t mean that I haven’t read my share of great ones! So in the second of my wrap-up posts I present my ten favourite reads of 2013!
Those that read my posts on the site (rather than by the RSS Feed) will probably have seen the widget in my sidebar highlighting my favourite book of each month. Like last year, I’ve decided that I couldn’t just limit myself to those books as some months it was really difficult deciding between a couple or more books.
While this is a top ten list, other than the book in first place the rest are listed in no particular order.

A cracking adventure and I loved watching Kenzie worm her way into Ethan’s life!
Really enjoyed meeting Ellie Quinn and watching her adventures in the first three books of this series. Can’t wait for next instalment.
The Book of Doom, the second book in Barry Hutchison’s Afterworlds series, is just hilarious as the first!
The story is developing nicely in this fun story from Jane Yolen and I can’t wait to see where, Alieria, Avery, & Caroline’s stories go next.
Emma Newman’s Split Worlds is such an intriguing place to visit, and is packed with fantastic characters!
A return to the wonderful characters and engaging story-lines from JK Rowling that I enjoyed so much in Harry Potter.
So pleased to finally fully enjoy a de Lint book! Really enjoyed this book about friends, friendship, the effects they have on us, and most importantly the strength they give us.
Laureth Peak is one of the characters of the year and you really should read her story!
Can’t tell you how close this one was to taking the #1 spot, but in the end that one has just had a little longer to stay with me, if I had read them the other way around who knows!?
AND MY #1 READ OF 2013 IS…
Eleanor and Park, two of my other favourite characters of the year. Their story is wonderfully told by Rainbow Rowell and it will stay with you, like it did with me.
