1. Gone with the Wolf by Kristin Miller
This was an match made pick for me, I think I signed up for an "review this book for its up coming release" thing through Entangled Covet. I know that I jumped onto the blog tour for the book because I was getting my feet wet on my blog. SassyCat's was very new at this time.
I really love Kristin's writing and her concept of werewolves finding their one true mate/luminary but the characters were just perfect and I love the story line. I've read book 2 Four Weddings and a Werewolf and I kept telling Kristin that she need to consider one of the wolves in the seattle pack needs his story no matter how bad he is, because he is a very bad wolf. We'll see :-) Highly Recommend!
2. With All My Soul by Rachel Vincent
I've always been a huge fan of Rachel Vincent since as long I can remember, I jumped into her first Adult/Urban Fantasy Shifters books in 2010, the last book Alpha was already released and Rachel gained a new reader fan. But as it turns out I have read the first 3 books of the Soul Screamers series without even realizing it and I was now waiting for number 4 to come out. WAMS gave a final conclusion of the series, all the characters got their happy ending. While I'm sad it's ended, I will always go back to this author because she was really my first author I started reading after Stephanie Meyers.
3. Origin by Jennifer L Armentrout
I didn't know about Jennifer until last summer 2013, I guess you could say I was busy with other books. But I was completely driven by the books through its characters, Katy is almost just like me and Daemon was a guy that I could drool in private. While Origin was one of my top favorite books of 2013, Opal was truly a better contender because of the relationship changes and new challenges, however Origin equals to Opal because of what is explained very indepth and Daemon willing to go against everything hes ever believe and stood by for Katy. Plus there were some very cute and Aws moments along with surprises.
4. Rise by Andrea Cremer
I've been a huge fan of Andrea for awhile and I have met her because she is from the Midwest area and visits MN as often as she can, plus do some touring or appearances, etcs. Anyways she's awesome, I love her Nightshade series with Calla, Ren, and Shay along with others and at first I wasn't sure much about the searchers and witches wars etcs that creates the back story of the series but now Rift (Prequel #1) and Rise (#2) explains all of that plus more. I love Ember aside from her name and her courage and determination but I also love Barrow, the broodily warrior who has completely fallen in love with Ember. Together they will survive through anything evil throws at them. I hope that Andrea will get to book 3 cause I really want to read it BADLY
5. Crash Into You by Katie McGarry
DUH how can I not love this? Katie McGarry writes the best contemporary/ romance books. It started with Echo and Noah, then Ryan and Beth and now Isaiah and Rachel. They all have two story, they are both opposite by the way they are raised and such but really you know that you'll find your better half by someone who challenges you to move outside the box. Between the three books I love all three but Rachel and Isaiah really takes it off with speed.
6. A Risk Worth Taking by Heather Hildenbrand
This NA, Contemporary, Romance is all about taking risks. You may not realizes it but every day you are taking some sort of risk, either by your mind or by your heart. When Summer and Ford meet, its instant attraction however they both had a plan . . . a plan that didn't include being in love right now but when the summer season is over, they both deal with the biggest heartbreak ever but sometimes Plans changes. The ending of the book was completely way to go when you go breaking someone's heart, you have to prove to that person that you won't break it ever again.
So what were some of your best reads of 2013?
