    So I can never list a favorite, but I just found a new author that I really liked, and she has very affordable ebooks on Amazon! Kind of how I found Andrea Host and Lindsay Buroker. Her name is Intisar Khanani and the book I read was Thorn. A retelling of The Goose Girl. Can’t wait to read more of her stuff.

  • Jennifer C
    December 25, 2013 at 4:25 am

    Picking favourites, always difficult:

    I’d say “Gut gegen Nordwind” (Love virtually), by Daniel Glattauer.
    An epistolary novel, an eMail romance to exact, which turned out to be unexpectedly charming – I’m glad I gave that one a chance.

  • Stacy
    December 25, 2013 at 5:53 am

    I’ve read almost 200 books this year, and picking just one is a little… Well. If I must…

    Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell
    It had me gushing and beaming and brimming with feelings of all kinds.

    Happy Holidays!!!

  • Alex B

    Geez, you mean I have to choose just one? :p I read so many good books this past year that it’s really hard to narrow down the list. Though if I had to, I’d say it would be a 3-way tie between Courtney Schafer’s “The Tainted City,” Scott Lynch’s “The Lies of Locke Lamora,” and Nnedi Okorafor’s “Who Fears Death.”

    Hard question, of course, but the name that immediately jumped to my mind was The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own Making by Catherynne M. Valente. I still haven’t read further in the series than that, but I definitely will!

    Favorite read of 2013? I have a few…

    Of the books *not* published in 2013 it’s definitely Adam Rapp’s 33 Snowfish.
    Of the books that were published in 2013, it’s a tie between Winger and Reality Boy, with Two Boys Kissing a close 2nd.

  • Biblibio
    December 25, 2013 at 1:32 pm

    Kalpa Imperial was without a doubt the best book I read this year. As for recently published… honestly not sure. There were a few I liked quite a bit, but my year was very dry when it came to jaw-dropping good books. Really, it was only Kalpa Imperial that blew me away… and Lean In, I suppose, but that was a very different sort of reading experience and my appreciation for it isn’t quite the same as labeling a book as “the best book I read in 2013″…

    It’s a tough call, but out of the books I rated 5 stars I have to go with The Runaway King by Jennifer Nielsen. Sage is such a compelling character and the writing always has me on the edge of my seat. I’m really excited for book three!

    This year it was definitely The Historian by Elizabeth Kostova. I was so reluctant to pick it up as I was afraid it’s going to be another clichΓ© vampire book but OMG. Mind blown! As a fan of horror, this book is gripping, suspenseful and made me a tad more alert at night. Waiting so long to read it was my bad…

    My favourite read of 2013 was Elizabeth Moon Vatta’s War series. Not new, but “Trading in Danger” was newly recommended here, I bought the first one when it was on Kindle sale, and promptly ended up buying the rest. The first two, “Trading in Danger” and “Marque and Reprisal” were the best, I think, but all were good, really.

  • Victoria Hoyle
    December 25, 2013 at 6:24 pm

    My favourite book of 2013 was probably The Charioteer by Mary Renault, a 1953 novel about a young gay man falling in love after being wounded during WWII. It was reprinted by Virago and I was surprised by how straightforward Renault was about her characters sexuality, and also by how tenderly she wrote gay romance. She was a lesbian herself and lived in South Africa with her partner, who she met while nursing in the 1920s. A really lovely book that deserves a wider audience.

  • Dovile

    For my favourite book of 2013 I’m going to have to admit that I picked up an Ursula le Guin book for the first time this year. I have no idea why I waited so long but I’m hooked! The first book of the earthsea quartet was a lovely read and I can’t wait to find the time to read the rest!

  • Darryl Lee

    How can you ask me to choose ONE BOOK! *Sigh* But if I must… ONE OF my favorite reads of 2013 is FANGIRL By Rowell. A couple months later and I’m still thinking about it, still wanting to turn it’s pages again… Thanks so much for the giveaway! – and for an awesome blog to read! ^^

  • Nathan (@ReviewBarn)

    The book that has stuck with me the most is The Scar by Marina and Sergie Dyachenko. I also enjoyed a few Pratchett books that were close.

  • April V.
    December 26, 2013 at 9:08 am

    You cannot actually expect a bunch of rabid book lovers to actually choose only ONE BOOK can you? Impossible. I’m going to list a few of the most recent highlights of my 2013 reading.
    The Tell-Tale Con by Aimee Gilchrist – this was a surprise, a really good and funny and interesting YA mystery without loads of silliness that often gets squeezed into YA books.
    The Palace Job by Patrick Weekes – a very fun fantasy heist story as if Ocean’s Eleven had a love child with Pratchet’s Discworld.
    Cry Baby Hollow by Aimee Love – an urban fantasy in rural Tennessee. I think that about says it all.

    I left off most of the bigger ones, those don’t need the exposure but these underapreciated ones do. Also, no, I don’t know why there are so many Aimees on my list.

  • Patrick Samphire
    December 26, 2013 at 10:10 am

    That’s almost mean to have to choose just one, but okay. I’d have to choose The Screaming Staircase by Jonathan Stroud. Great story in a fantastic world, and his best book I think.

  • Galena

  • MarchRose

    December 26, 2013 at 12:50 pm

    Oh man, I’m not sure what books I read this year were published in 2013 but some of my favorite reads were The Book Thief (brutal but amazing), And All the Stars (a book with people who actually use common sense!?!), The Candy Makers (So so so so so so awesome), Discount Armageddon (Tropes actually work in this one), Unnatural Creatures (One of the best short story collections ever), The Girl Who Fell Beneath Fairyland and Led the Revels There (Want to go here so bad!), The Graveyard Book (Perfect mix of scary, sweet, fun, and fanciful), The Haunting of Hill House (the most atmospheric book ever…can’t believe it took me so long to pick it up), Raven Boys (sensible and friendly and awesome) and finally Miracles and other Christmas Stories (seriously there is the most perfect Christmas Alien story in here!). These are my favorites for 2013…except for all the others I don’t have time to put on the list.

  • Lillian
    December 26, 2013 at 1:41 pm

    That’s a big question, but I’d say my favorite book read during 2013 was Ender’s Game. Can’t wait to see the movie and see if they did it justice.

  • Stephanie Burgis
    December 26, 2013 at 1:58 pm

    Proxy by Alex London

  • Corinne Duyvis
    December 26, 2013 at 2:14 pm

    This is a really hard choice–I recently finished ILLUSIVE by Emily Lloyd-Jones which I loved, though it’s not out until 2014. THE BRIDES OF ROLLROCK ISLAND by Margo Lanagan also blew my mind. Oh, and I loved THE NIGHT CIRCUS and A FACE LIKE GLASS and… I’m bad at choosing favorites, apparently!

  • Christine Sarmel
    December 26, 2013 at 2:22 pm

    My all time favorite book is Dear John.

  • Lexie C.
    December 26, 2013 at 3:52 pm

    Its a toss up based on genres–Pivot Point (by Kasie West) for YA, Wicked After Midnight (by Delilah S. Dawson) for paranormal historical steampunk romance and Indexing (by Seanan McGuire) for…re-imagined fairy tale creepitude? Is that a genre?

  • Sharli M

    Picking a favorite read feels nearly impossible- but there are two that I just can’t get out of my mind. And they happen to be by the same author. Eleanor & Park and Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell kind of blew my mind this year- prior to reading Fangirl, I had never before encountered that part of my life in fiction where it wasn’t made fun of and put down- and she captured every bit so wonderfully and gave the whole genre of fanfiction and fan interaction a love letter that I completely adored. And Eleanor & Park was just so heart-wrenchingly lovely.

    To be honest there’s been so many that I’ve loved but I think my favourite this year after a long hard think (and book fisticuffs) have had to pick:
    Steelheart – Brandon Sanderson

    As it was something completely different from my normal choice and was a book that I had a lot of fun reading.

    The book I loved best in 2013 was non-fiction – not my usual read – that took me several months to get through. Far from the Tree, by Andrew Solomon, investigated children who were NOT like their parents – children who were deaf, autistic, prodigies, criminal, born of rape, severely disabled, born with Down’s syndrome, et al. Well researched and well written.
