Top Ten Tuesday: The Top Ten Best Books I’ve Read So Far This Year

Wehay its Top Ten Tuesday again.  Ten Tuesday is a brilliant book meme  hosted by The Broke and the Bookish and this week its the best books we have read so far in 2013.


  1. The Cavendish Home for Boys and Girls by Claire Legrand – This book is so creepy and scary and cool – I LOVED it and am so excited for Claire’s next offering.
  2. The Peculiar by Stefan Bachmann – fairies and steampunk? YES PLEASE. Beautifully written. Great world building. I am so excited for the next book.
  3. The Diviners by Libbra Bray – Its a paranormal fantasy set in 1920’s New York. Need I say more?
  4. Seraphina by Rachel Hartman – Dragons and princes and politics and amazing world building and great writing. What else do you need?
  5. Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo – A twisting turning plot plus kick ass man character plus awesome magic plus hot boys plus cool Russia inspired world equals book perfection.
  6. AND Siege and Storm by Leigh Bardugo – STILL PERFECT!
  7. Requiem by Lauren Oliver – great conclusion to one of my favourite YA series by one of my favourite authors
  8. Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater – Beautiful writing, well developed characters and a paranormal mystery.
  9. The Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman – SO SO good. Monsters and magic and mysteries.
  10. Cinder by Marissa Meyer – a fairy-tale with the coolest twist yet. I NEED to read Scarlett pronto.

  1. Great list. I must read Requiem soon, I loved the rest of the series. I need to also start Shadow and Bone. I’ve just added The Cavendish Home for Boys and Girls to my TBR list!

  2. The Ocean at the End of the Lane is on my TBR asap list! 🙂 I also keep stumbling across Cinder on these TTT lists so that may have to be checked out too.

  3. I want to get my hands on Siege and Storm, but it just hasn’t happened yet. I really enjoyed the ending of the Requiem too. I thought it was well done.

  4. I love so many of these! The Diviners, Raven Boys, Shadow and Bone, Siege and Storm, Cinder! I’ve been meaning to read the first one and the second one sounds great. Great list!
