My Top 5 Books Read in 2013

December 28, 2013 , , ,

I read 125 books in 2013, which was a decent number given everything else I had going on, however it was still less than I read in 2012 and 2011!

Friends (and book club buddies!) know I am a very critical reader, which no doubt will come back to bite me in the ass when my own book comes out. Regardless, I read some truly stellar books this year and wanted to share them with you. I am a little hesitant, actually, to write this list now, because I am midway through “The Goldfinch” by Donna Tartt and am absolutely loving it. Maybe it will go on my 2014 list.

Anyway, in no particular order, my five favorite books of 2013:


We Are All Completely Beside Ourselves by Karen Joy Fowler


Autobiography of Us by Aria Beth Sloss


The Engagements by J. Courtney Sullivan


The Good House by Ann Leary (if forced to pick a favorite this would be it)


Wonder by RJ Palacio

Very honorable mentions include: The House at Sugar Beach by Helene Cooper, Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell, Tigers in Red Weather by Liza Klaussmann, The One and Only Ivan by Katherine Applegate, Theory of Opposites by Allison Winn Scotch, Safe with Me by Amy Hatvany, and Bodies of Water by T. Greenwood.

Happy reading – for the rest of 2013 and beyond! 🙂
