She's Making a List: Arianne Shares her Favourite Books of 2013!


I don't know about you, but I think 2013 must be one of the greatest years for YA reading on record! I read so many amazing books this year, it was next to impossible to come up with just ten. I could talk about why I love my choices forever but I'm actually hoping to not ramble too much on you today - so without further ado, I'm simply going to let the books and their quotes speak for themselves :) 

-- Arianne.

NUMBER ONE



“Life is the tragedy,' she said bitterly. 'You know how they categorize Shakespeare's plays, right? If it ends with a wedding, it's a comedy. And if it ends with a funeral, it's a tragedy. So we're all living tragedies, because we all end the same way, and it isn't with a goddamn wedding.”

NUMBER TWO



“I like to imagine there were more of us in the beginning. Not many, I suppose. But more than there are now.”



----

NUMBER THREE



"The Republic's most wanted criminal is just a boy, sitting before me, suddenly vulnerable, laying all his weaknesses out for me to see."


REVIEW COMING SOON!

NUMBER FOUR



“There are different kinds of happy,” she said. “Some kinds don’t need any proof.” 



----

NUMBER FIVE



“If I poured all the lies I had told into the Mississippi, the river would rise and flood the city.” 

REVIEW COMING SOON!

Thanks to Arianne for the fabulous guest post. I'm sure you'll all agree that there are some great books listed here! I can't believe I haven't yet read My Life Next Door or Code Name Verity (I know, I know!) I promise to get to those two in the New Year.

What do you think of Arianne's end-of-year list? Any of your personal favourites on there?

  1. Arianne The Bone Season would definitely make it as a favourite of 2013 too, I just loved the entire world that Shannon had created. Out of the Easy was a really surprising read for me too, as I normally don't read historical fiction. I really need to get back to Lu's series, as I only heard amazing things!

    Great list, Arianne! Out of the Easy was one of my favorites of the year too. Sadly, I haven't gotten around to reading Code Name yet. I LOVED My Life Next Door and Pushing the Limits…both awesome reads.

  3. Great list, Arianne! I really, really need to get around to reading Code Name Verity and My Life Next Door in 2014! Can't believe I've left it so long with those two!
