81 Books in 2013

I read 81 books in 2013.
(the one really bugs me; I want to read another book to round that to a two so it's 82). My goodreads challenge was 75.
There were books I enjoyed, some that were quick reads, and others that I LOVED. These are the ones I highly recommend (in no particular order):


Sky Jumpers by Peggy Eddleman

Jellico Road by Melina Marchetta

Pivot Point by Kassie West

Defy by Sara Larson

Mind Games by Kiersten White

Poison by Bridget Zinn

Insurgent by Veronica Ross

The Day Before by Lisa Schroeder

Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo

The Emperor's Soul by Brandon Sanderson


 I'm not sure I could pick a favorite out of these choices. MIND GAMES was different and intriguing while PIVOT POINT had a great voices in alternating chapters, but it was the same person. INSURGENT and SHADOW AND BONE are amazing books that are part of trilogies and THE DAY BEFORE is in verse.
DEFY actually came out in 2014 but I read it early on Netgalley. Girl dresses as boy as not to get killed, crushes on prince--nice! SKY JUMPERS was a fanstastic middle grade book.

What about you? Did you have ONE favorite read?

If I had to pick just one it would be ANGELFALL: Penryn and the End of Days. GO read it now!
