Krista's Top 5 Books for 2013
Krista, like Lisa, reviewed a ton of books this year! Here she lists her Top 5 reads for 2013
1. The Selection by Kiera Cass
It turned out to be way more than just a love story. This book contains some really heavy political issues and depth.
2. The Nightmare Garden (Iron Codex 2) By Caitlin Kittredge
Fantastic characters and world setting, steampunk story with a lot of world traveling and world building.
3. Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe by Benjamin Alire Saenz
I have never been a fan of contemporary reads but found this one powerful and the bond between the two boys and their families was touching. This was the book that got me to pick up more contemporary reads this year.
4. Rebel Heart (Dust Lands 2) by Moira Young
As this series progresses it gets better. The language and writing style was hard for me to get used to, so I listened to the audiobooks and loved them. Great adventure and characters.
5. Bonechiller by Graham McNamee
He has made my “must buy” list. I loved his writing and ability to completely immerse me in the story. This book was a tie with his book Beyond, I went out and purchased all of his books after reading it. Bonechiller is a haunting story set in Canada about a legendary monster out killing teens.
