I'm noticing a descending trend in the number of books I'm reading but thankfully that's not the same with the number of books I'm enjoying. 2013 wasn't the best reading year but it was a year in which I read some of my all time favourite books.
5th: Champion - Marie Lu
4th: Crown of Midnight - Sarah J. Maas
3rd: Scarlet - A.C. Gaughan
Retellings! To be honest, I tend to ignore retelling despite their reappearance in popular reads. The only one I remember reading is one of Mulan and that's because Mulan is irresistible!
Scarlet on the other hand, is a retelling of Robin Hood with a twist. Robin's band includes a spunky crossdressing girl named Scarlet! Now that I think about it the resemblance to Mulan is probably why I enjoyed it so much :)
2nd: Clockwork Princess - Cassandra Clare
1st: The Bronze Horseman - Paullina Simons
P.S. Think man in army suit, now think perfect 20th century gentleman. Do you have the image in your head? Now go read this book!
It's been an interesting reading year. I've read more fantasy and historical fiction, which are quite like me. I read to escape and to travel and these books are the best at doing that!
