[Top Ten Tuesday: Favorite Books Of 2013...So Far]

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly linkup hosted by The Broke And The Bookish!

I've read so many good books this year.  Getting it down to my top ten has been brutal and so some cuts have needed to be made.  But all in all, these are the books that blew me away so far this year.  I'm not gonna keep talking about these books, instead I'm going to show you which ones I'm talking about!

Books That Have A Death Grip On My Heart This Year!
 "In the Shadow of Blackbirds" by Cat Winters

"Cinder" by Marissa Meyer

"Just One Day" by Gayle Forman

"Rouge" by Leigh T. Moore

"The Last Academy" by Anne Applegate

"The Sweetest Dark" by Shana Abe

"The Ward" by Jordana Frankel

"Warm Bodies" by Isaac Marion

"Gorgeous" by Paul Rudnick

"How My Summer Went Up In Flames" by Jennifer Salvato Doktorski

 Well there's my list!  What's on yours?  I wanna know.  Leave your link below or tell me in the comments!

I have Just One Day on my list too, it's one of the best contemporaries ever that shredded my heart so quietly I didn't even know I was a crying mess in the end xD I've heard amazing things for Cinder and I plan to read that one soon!

Cinder and Just One Day were so good it's ridiculous! I can't wait to get In The Shadow of Blackbirds, I grabbed it when it was super cheap on Kindle and am excited to see what all the love for that one it about. Great list!

Lori @ Writing My Own Fairy Tale said...

Yay for Warm Bodies! And I just recently read Just One Day and I'm always amazed by Gayle Forman. I didn't love it as much as If I Stay, but it was still so good. Now I'm dying to read Just One Year! Great list!

Lili said...

I read CINDER in 2012, and I freaking loved it. I can't wait to read GORGEOUS and I'm reading JUST ONE DAY as we speak. It's good! not blowing me away, but really good!

Renae @ Respiring Thoughts said...

Haha, The Sweetest Dark! That book is so good even though we're like, the only two bloggers who think so, lol. So happy to see Cinder on this list, also!

Natalie @Natflix&Books said...

I just checked out Just One Day, but haven't gotten to it yet. I still need to read Cinder, too. I've heard so many good things. Great list!

I loved Just One Day! How My Summer Went Up In Flames is a good summer read. Cinder is very different (in a good way). I haven't read any other books on your list.

I have so many of these sitting on my shelf waiting to be read, and the only one on the list that I've read is Cinder. I agree it was awesome. I hadn't even heard of Rogue, but I picked it up!

Great list Christianna, Just One Day made it to my list too. I'm really eager now to start with How My Summer Went up in Flames and In the Shadow of Blackbirds after you mentioned them on your list!

Yay In the Shadow of Blackbirds! I love seeing that on these lists :) Just finished Cinder, also awesome to see it there! You have lots there that I want to read, too, like Just One Day, The Ward, and How My Summer Went Up In Flames. Glad they were so good!
