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

This was a seriously difficult list to make…I have read some really amazing books so far this year!

(1) On An Edge Of Glass by Autumn Doughton (March 9th 2013)
Seriously one of the best books I've read in a long long time! I loved this so much I can't even tell you - a musician hero this isn't a complete douche, a heroine that isn't a whiny crying pain in the neck and a healthy romantic and humorous storyline!!! OMG it is AMAZING!

(2) Wait For You by J. Lynn (February 26th 2013)
Well it should be no surprise to anyone that I have a JLA book on my list :) She is too awesome for words and so is this book!

(3) Pushing The Limits by Katie McGarry (July 31st 2012)
I was surprise by how emopitinoal this story was - I got so invested in Echo & Noah's story I was lost to the world when reading it. I don't normally like bad boy heros, but Noah is not a simple 'bad boy' and he at the top of my book boyfriend list!

(4) Dare You To by Katie McGarry (May 28th 2013)
Katie McGarry did it again with the sequel to Pushing the Limits! I was soo devastated for Isaiah when I I found out Beth falls for new guy Ryan. But McGarry thourghly convinced me that Beth & Ryan were perfect for on another! I have no doubt that the 3rd book Crash into You will be on my end of year Top Ten :)

(5) Suddenly Royal by Nichole Chase (April 23rd 2013)
I think this book basically consisted of every girl's fairytale dream, discovering she's a duchess & falling in love with a sexy as hell prince. And of course there is plenty of sexy time on her new estate *wink wink*

(6) Emblaze by Jessica Shirvington (March 5th 2013)
Ahh Jessica Shirvington…I love you ** This series is simple AMAZING and for any YA fantasy/paranormal lovers out there - YOU MUST READ THIS!!!

(7) The Coincidence Of Callie & Kayden by Jessica Sorensen (Dec 13th 2012)
Such an emotional story with strong characters - this one was really beautiful! Only problem was a killer cliff hanger!

(8) A Song For Julia by Charles Sheehan-Miles (Dec 4th 2012)
This was one a beautifully written romance by a male author! Crank, a musician and Julia a diplomats daughter don't make sense on paper, but their relationship was so beautiful to watch unfold. Both have had tough lives for different reasons, but together with their mutual love of music they learn how to be happy!

(9) The Only Exception by Magan Vernon (April 9th 2013)
Loved this political new adult romance - it was refreshing to have such a feisty heroine! Monica stood up for what she believed in, as did Trey. They often clashed heads in political class at college, but that didn't stop them falling in love!

(10) Getting Away With It by Julie Cohen (Sept 13th 2011)
I love Julie Cohen's writing style - she writes really beautiful romances with humour. With Liza impersonating her sister Lee you know there are going to be some hilarious moments in this book. Plus there's Will, the dishy British love interest - need I say more!

I also have to make mentions of some other amazing books that just missed the list:

Lost by Nadia Simonenko (March 25th 2013)
Unraveling by Elizabeth Norris (April 24th 2012)
For Darkness Shows the Stars by Diana Peterfreund (Jun 12th 2012)
Angel Burn by L.a Weatherly (May 24th 2011)
Animal Instincts by Nell Dixon (March 1st 2009)

Well those are my Top Ten - what are the best books you've read so far this year?

  3. I also loved Pushing the Limits! Dare You To is on my TBR list - I'll read it soon since I just bought it. Unraveling was pretty good, too. :) Happy reading!

  4. I haven't read Pushing The Limits but from all the raving reviews, seems like I really should! It's been on quite a number of lists, maybe it'll make it to my end of year favourites :D I've read A Song for Julia a few months ago. I liked it, but I didn't love it, maybe New Adult is still a new genre for me!
