TOP 10 YA BOOKS OF 2013

1. Things I Can't Forget (Hundred Oaks #3) by Miranda Kenneally

Without question, my favorite YA books of 2013! I loved the story, the complexity, the struggle of the characters and, basically, how Miranda Kenneally was able to perfectly capture how to get over yourself sometimes. This series is PHENOMENAL.  Seriously.  I'm already ready to read this one again. Full review here
2. Origin (Lux #4) by Jennifer L. Armentrout 



Not what I was expecting but everything I always wanted from this series!  I cannot wait to read Opposition (Lux #5) but I do NOT want this series to end -- JLA is amazing!!

3. Flat-Out Matt (Flat-Out Love #1.5) by Jessica Park

The short companion novella to my favorite book of last year was simply perfect.   Full review here
4. Just One Day and Just One Year by Gayle Forman


Beautiful, beautiful series by Gayle Forman about self-discovery.  The second and final book was even better than the first!

5. The Dream Thieves (The Raven Cycle #2) by Maggie Stiefvater 

Another series that made my list last year and Dream Thieves was even better than The Raven Boys!  I wish I could live in whatever state of mind occurs for Maggie Steifvater to write these books -- absolutely sublime!

6. Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell 

Loved this one so much -- can't wait to read more from this author next year!
7. Fall of Night (The Morganville Vampires #14) and Daylighters (The Morganville Vampires #15) by Rachel Caine
Amazing conclusion to one of my favorite series of all time.  I miss you already, Claire!

8. Sweet Peril (The Sweet Trilogy #2) by Wendy Higgins 

I just started this series this year and its conclusion, Sweet Reckoning, is my most anticipated book of 2014.  I absolutely adore Anna and Kai -- their journey in Sweet Peril was unstoppable!
9. The Indigo Spell (Bloodlines #3) and The Fiery Heart (Bloodlines #4) by Richelle Mead

Seriously, I've read everything Richelle Mead has ever written and she never disappoints! The Indigo Spell and The Fiery Heart were even better than the first two books in this series and I am dying to know what will happen next.
10. Boundless (Unearthly #3) by Cynthia Hand

Another great series conclusion -- perfect ending, perfect build-up!

  2. I've read about half of these, and I can agree they belong on a list like this. :) I've read Flat-Out Love but I haven't picked up the novella yet. I bet it's really cute. :) I'm still hesitant to pick up that Gayle Forman series, but maybe I'll get to it "one day". Heh. :)

  4. I just bought Things I Can't Forget yesterday! It was a great Kindle deal, so now I'm really glad I got it! I have Boundless, but STILL haven't read it. Sigh. I hope to do that soon. As well as read Indigo Spell and Fiery Heart! I liked Origin ok, but Opal is still my favorite Lux book. I keep hearing great things about Fangirl too. I have it, just need to find the time to read it!

Review: History of Wolves by Emily Fridlund

History of Wolves by Emily Fridlund

Blurb from Goodreads:
Linda has an idiosyncratic home life: her parents live in abandoned commune cabins in northern Minnesota and are hanging on to the last vestiges of a faded counter-culture world. The kids at school call her 'Freak', or 'Commie'. She is an outsider in all things. Her understanding of the world comes from her observations at school, where her teacher is accused of possessing child pornography, and from watching the seemingly ordinary life of a family she babysits for. Yet while the accusation against the teacher is perhaps more innocent than it seemed at first, the ordinary family turns out to be more complicated. As Linda insinuates her way into the family's orbit, she realises they are hiding something. If she tells the truth, she will lose the normal family life she is beginning to enjoy with them; but if she doesn't, their son may die. Superbly-paced and beautifully written, HISTORY OF WOLVES is an extrao…
