I totally was going for a quick, short list of my favorite reads of the year so far. HA!!!! I swear this started out as a Top 10 list… But just like with last year, a Top 10, Top 15, Top 20, Top 50 etc just wasn’t enough. I just kept adding more and more books that I loved from this year and pretty soon I lost count and honestly didn’t want to take any off the list. I loved them all for different reasons — some of them made me feel so strongly that even just thinking back on them brings a lump to my throat, some of them made me laugh (or cry) so much that I could barely see the page through my tears, some were just so refreshingly different and unique that they stood out to me, some were beautifully written, some were off-the-charts HOT, and some were a blend of all of the above.
Bottom line, all of these books rocked my world this year and I feel like they all deserve to be showcased. So I just gave up on the idea of a short list and decided to feature them all. So here they are… my favorite books read since Jan 2013 🙂
