Top Ten Books So Far in 2013

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.


I've read so many good books this year, it's already hard to narrow it down to ten. But here goes... (links go through to my reviews rather than me trying and failing to summarise in a sentence why I loved them).

#9 Paper Aeroplanes by Dawn O'Porter



#8 The Eternity Cure by Julie Kagawa

#7 Dot, Dash by Jonathan Pinnock



#6 Among Others by Jo Walton

#5 The Shining Girls by Lauren Beukes

  5. I wanted to read Fifth Wave. But I only got about twenty pages before I realized this book is much too scary for little chicken me.

  6. Great list. I absolutely loved The 5th Wave and The Eternity Cure so they both made my list! I've had Among Others on my wishlist for so long now might pick it up before going on holiday. Also I am dying to get The Humans. Have heard nothing but great things about it so I also need to pick it up asap!

  9. Waiting my turn for 5th Wave. Everyone seems to be loving this one! I want to start the Julie Kagawa series soon. I think I might be over zombies for a while and need a vampire fix! http://wp.me/pzUn5-1yN

  10. Sad to say the only book on that list I've read is The Eternity Cure - but I loved it as well. Really want to read Among Others and The Shining Girls though...

  11. The Eternity Cure and The 5th Wave made it to my list too, they were simply just brilliant reads! I've not heard a lot about the other books you've mentioned, but I definitely will check them out now!

  12. I really want to read The 5th Wave! I still haven't started the Blood of Eden series, but I love Kagawa's Iron Fey books. Great list!

  14. Wonderful to see Among Others on the list, it is one of my favorite books of the last decade, for certain.

  15. This bodes well for the rest of my year! I have The Shining Girls out from the library at the moment, The Eternity Cure and The Humans approved on NetGalley and Among Others upstairs on my shelves. Now I just actually read them!

  16. Ah, you remind me that I wanted to read The Shining Girls and completely forgot to add it to my list - done now!
