Best books read in 2013
I do love a good list of books! What were your favorite books read this year?
My list is painfully short. Though I read a lot, most of it was forgettable. Here are my top three:
1) The Fault in Our Stars - John Green
Despite this being a story about teens with cancer, it was brilliant, uplifting and darkly funny. I don't know how the movie will do it justice.
2) The Perks of Being a Wallflower - Stephen Chbosky
Another YA, this one about an awkward boy in high school and the friends who make a difference.
3) Lexicon -- Max Barry
This reminded me of Lev Grossman's The Magician on some level, though it was quite a different story. This fantasy plays with the power of words and I thought it was quite original.
