My Favorite Books of 2013

Every year, I compile a list of my favorite young adult books. And every year, it gets harder to narrow the choices. I meet so many fabulous authors at events, and their books are unique and perfect in their own right. And because I love my author peeps, it makes it even more difficult to pick just ten from the exhaustive amount of stories I enjoy. In no way do I base this list on who I am friends with. Alas, The List is made entirely from my “reader/fangirl” side. So, my fine folks, here were my favorite young adult books of 2013:

 

1. THE 5TH WAVE by Rick Yancey
