2013 in Books

It’s time once again for a quick wrap up of my favorite books of 2013. Because I was working on a young adult fantasy for my thesis, I read quite a bit of YA fantasy and dystopian fiction. My picks for this year include Rae Carson’s Girl of Fire and Thorns, Kristen Cashore’s Graceling, and Cornelia Funke’s Fearless. You can check out my reviews in detail on my Goodreads page. Outside of fantasy, I’ve been reading Phoebe Stone’s The Romeo and Juliet Code, a middle grade historical fiction. I haven’t finished it quite yet, but so far I am very impressed. I helped my daughter read Burnett’s The Secret Garden. I read also Kevin Prufer’s Strange Wood and Fallen from a Chariot. I love his poetry.
My list of books to be read continues to grow, and I’ll keep you posted on those that I feel are worth passing on.
Happy reading everyone. What were your favorite books of 2013?
