Top Ten Books of 2013

I've been gone this year because it has been a crazy year! With a medical scare I'm still battling, work and school stress, I'm just so glad that 2013 is heading out the door. I promise to be a better blogger, and hopefully I'll be starting a NEW blog to showcase some crafty talents of mine and additional adventures. Fingers crossed!

This TTT features the top ten books I read of 2013. This seams easy!

1. Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte - Oh please, if you've not read this book, go out and read it. When I read Jane Eyre I remember being scoffed at by friends, friends who claimed they loved the classics, and being told the Bronte sisters are over-rated. Excuse me? No. This is such a heartbreaking, masterful story. Just read it no matter your taste in literature!

2. Bloodfever by Karen Marie Moning - I know some of you are adults, or more mature readers, who still want to have fun reading in the paranormal genre. I was so happy when I was introduced to these books. They're just what I needed when I wanted to step out of the YA fiction just a LITTLE bit and see what else was around.

3. Love in the Time of Cholera by Gabriel Garcia Marquez - I know this is a favoritve for many. After being introduced to Marquez by a professor, she lent me her copy of this little gem. This book has so many feels.

4. White Fire by Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child - So, if you know me, you know I love these authors. Their latest book came out this November and I devoured it. If you like thrillers, I suggest reading their Still Life with Crows first.

5. Drown by Junot Diaz - Many people are aware of Diaz with his acclaimed novel The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao, but few know that this piece of fiction came first. Just as good as Oscar!

I'm looking forward to seeing all of you in the coming year! Love to all my readers, new and old!


  1. I will have to check out Still Life with Crows, sounds good. I do like these authors.

  2. I really didn't want to read Wuthering Heights (it was a required read for school), but I'm glad I read it! It's different from the books I usually read, but it's great! :D

    My TTT :)

  3. Wuthering Heights is my favorite book of all time!!! :)

    My Top Ten Tuesday

  4. Wuthering Heights is one of my absolute favourite books of all time - I get sad when people snort and tell me it's bad/rubbish/unreadable etc etc. I fell in love with it when my mum gave me her copy to read as a young teenager, and I've never looked back! :)
