Favorite Novels from 2013


According to my Goodreads records, I completed 104 novels in 2013. That’s down quite a bit from my 2012 total of 126, due mostly to the fact that I was more selective in 2013. I’ve decided time is too valuable to waste on a book that doesn’t interest me, so chances are my 2014 totals will be smaller yet.

But, of the books I did read in 2013, more ended up on my Favorites list–again, because I was more selective. The novels pictured above (and listed below) are all ones I’d recommend–there’s something for all ages and tastes.

  1. Brenda, I’m really honored to be on your list – all of these look wonderful. Like Kellie said so well, we have similar taste! And I’m awed by how many books you read this year especially given your own writing and very active life. Blessings on you as we move into another rich reading year! And many thanks!

  2. I don’t think I have actually read any that are on your list, but I have at least four of them in my TBR stack!
    I really enjoyed Burning Sky this year, also Unwritten by Charles Martin (I think we might have discussed that one) it was a great beach read.

    1. Hi Patty – You’ve got some good reading to look forward to! Right now I have Julie Klassen’s The Dancing Master on my TBR pile. Can’t wait to dig into that one!

      I remember talking about Unwritten by Charles Martin–his novels are always great, but my favorites are his early works. I also read Lori Benton’s Burning Sky–what a fantastic debut!
