Your Best of 2013

 

The Lives of Tao by Wesley ChuFirst off, The Lives of Tao by Wesley Chu has made it into a few of your favourites piles, and was even voted into the top ten science fiction books in the Goodreads Choice Awards! Badass Book Reviews included it on their Best Science Fiction of 2013 list. My Bookish Ways and Staffer’s Book Review both also named it a top debut of 2013. Justin of Staffer’s Book Review says:

8 months ago I called The Lives of Tao ‘the most fun I’ve had this year.’ Fast forward to today and it’s still true. He [Chu] succeeds because he’s got a clever voice, full of subtle wit and kinetic pacing.” (Staffer’s Book Review)

The reviews for this book have been phenomenal, so it’s definitely one series to catch up with if you missed it!

Three by Jay Posey is another favourite. Jasper of Book Plank says: It is not only the world that makes Three interesting, the characters are spot on and only further help make this story a winner, and Tabitha of My Shelf Confessions says: You seriously do NOT want to miss this debut! We agree!

The Big Reap by Chris F. Holm, design by Amazing15Next up is The Big Reap by Chris HolmThe Founding Fields and My Bookish Ways both included it in their top books of 2013 lists, and both bloggers, S.J. and Heather, over at Snobbery picked it to top their list as one of their two Super Best Books of 2013! Wow!

Now, let’s just talk for a moment about Between Two Thorns and the Split Worlds series by Emma NewmanBetween Two Thorns was a hit with so many of you, and not only that, but it was also listed in NetGalley’s Top Ten of the Year! The Founding Fields, My Bookish Ways, and A Fantastical Librarian are just a few of the blogs that included it in their best of lists. Justin at Staffer’s Book Review also gave the gorgeous cover by Sarah J. Coleman a mention in his Best Cover Art post.
