Top Ten Tuesday: Favourite Books I've Read So Far In 2013

Top Ten Tuesday is weekly meme created by the lovely folks at The Broke and the Bookish. They created it because they're "particularly fond of lists" and since I also enjoy lists, I've decided to participate in this fun feature.

2013 is just about halfway over (which is kind of insane...where has the year gone?) so it's high time to create a Best So Far list, don't you think? As of today, I've read 96 books so far this year. That's a lot to go through! Luckily, Goodreads was able to help me sort through my favourites of the year so far. It was actually ridiculously easy and I've realized that I have read A LOT of really great books. I could have easily picked twenty! Though, in all honesty, I really did pick more than ten as I couldn't pick favourites out of the Sarah Dessen, Heather Wardell, and Stephanie Perkins books! Have you read any of these? What are your favourites of the year so far? My picks aren't in any particular order and the links lead to my reviews.

Don't forget to check out their blog for a full list of everyone participating this week!

  1. Anna and the French Kiss is hands-down one of my favourite books I've read this year too! So absolutely amazing <3

  2. Wow, Kaley, I am so honored! Thank you so much. To be included with these incredible authors is such a joy and a dream!

  3. Someone loves Sarah Dessen. :D I won't even tell you that I still haven't read one of her books. Nope, I will NOT admit this to you as I fear you will look disfavorably upon me after hearing this info. I do have several of her books on my shelf, so it will remain unknown as to whether or not I have read said books. :P

    You do have a wonderful selection here! There are a few books here I have read, and a few more that I've had my eye on. Since we're book twins and all, I know that if you loved them, I will love them too.

    Great list! :)

  4. Oh my goodness, Kaley! You have so made my day!! Ditto what Sam said (waves to Sam) What an honor to be included with her and all of these amazing authors. :-) Thank you so much!!

  5. Yay for Anna and Lola making your top ten list :) I should make a list like this too.....

  6. Yay for Anna!! That book is awesome! I still need to read Lola :)

  7. Night Circus was great and Anna and the French Kiss was definitely a cute read! I still need to read Lola.. waiting for the 3rd to be out so I can get a whole matching set..
    Still haven't read any Sarah Dessen books but I hear such rave reviews about 'em!
