We usually wait until the end of each year to list our favorite reads but for 2013, we decided to follow in the footsteps of Jen at Red Hot Books (who is awesome) and list our favorite books as we read them throughout the year.
Previous month picks:
I liked book one in this fun, unique series but I loved book 2. Ahnastasia and Casper are stellar, especially Ahnastasia who is no Disney princess. The mix of steampunk and paranormal elements is great and the way the author works in history into her alternate world makes for an interesting read. This isn't just my favorite book for April but one of the best I've read so far this year. ~ Stephanie
This is the first novel in a YA Science Fiction series. It’s about a young girl who was cryogenically frozen and brought back a hundred years in the future. What makes this book so awesome wasn’t just the future world to explore, but the political and social drama the girl has to go through. Does the government own her, or is she her own person. I can’t wait for the next book in this series. ~ Beth
I’m so very late to the party when it comes to Patricia Briggs’ Fair Game. I love her Alpha & Omega series, especially since I’ve been burnt out when it comes to the Mercy books. To me, Fair Game was one of her best books in recent years. We meet up with Charles and Anna as they head off to investigate a local serial killer case. Anna has grown more confident in her own skin and you see that as she interacts with Charles, Bran and other players in the book. Charles, by contrast, has some issues to address and watching Anna help him made me love the book even more. Patricia Briggs has done a wonderful job in creating a solid couple in Anna and Charles and has made me very glad I decided to pick up the book. This was published last year, but I only purchased and read it this month. ~ Ronnie
Note: All books are listed by when we read them, not when they were published so some books will have been released in 2012 or earlier.
