YOUR Favorite Books of 2013 | Modern Mrs Darcy

Last week, I shared my favorite books of 2013. Today, it’s your turn to share yours!

Write a post sharing the best things you read in 2013. (It’s okay if they weren’t published in 2013.) If you’re one of those over-achieving bloggers who wrote separate posts for fiction and nonfiction, feel free to link up twice.

I can’t wait to see what you pick!

      It’s 17 degrees outside and there’s snow on the ground, but I’ve got a hot cup of coffee and an hour to browse through all these links. I know what you mean. 🙂

    Am I your only reader without a blog of my own? LOL I just looked at my goodreads and picked my top 8 books of 2013 (in no particular order):
    Chop-Chop, LN Cronk (actually I read the whole series in 2013 and the whole thing was awesome)
    Mr. Penumbra’s 24-Hour Bookstore, Robin Sloane
    When You Were Older, Catherine Ryan Hyde
    Kisses From Katie: A Story of Relentless Love and Redemption, Katie Davis and Beth Clark
    Schooled, Gordon Korman
    What Alice Forgot, Liane Moriarty
    The Great Train Robbery, Michael Crichton
    Raising Vegetarian Children, Joanne Stepaniak (the best resource I found when Samuel decided to be vegetarian)

  2. Thanks for hosting this link up, so fun to see what everybody loved to read. Thank you for the tip about JoJo Moyes books, I’ve heard so many great things and now I’m going to read The Girl You Left Behind. Happy new year!

    Thank you for all of the great book recommendations! I will be visiting all of the links over the next few days to add more titles to my never ending “to be read” list. I do not have a blog~~but I wanted to add two of my favorites from 2013. The Golem and the Jinni by Helene Wecker & The Snow Child by Eowyn Ivey. I was enchanted by both books and actually missed the characters after the stories ended.
