Before 2013 slips too far away, I want to look back over some of my favorite books from the year. As a college student, I don’t have much “free reading time” left over after reading all my textbooks – and you can be certain those did not make this list.
But I have been able to carve out half an hour here and there and somehow, I finished many books throughout the year. It shouldn’t surprise me, because some of my earliest memories are with my nose in a book, but I never thought I’d be able to keep that up while in college!
So you have no excuse.
Kidding, but not kidding.
Books are the transporting vehicles to worlds we can only visit in our imaginations. You must make time because you never know what you’re missing.
Check out this list, grab a few titles for your Must Read in 2014 List (you have one, don’t you? please. have one.) and let me know what you read and loved this past year!
Next Monday I’ll share my Must Read in 2014 List with you, but for now – these are, in random order, some of my favorite reads in 2013.
2. Sparkly Green Earrings: Catching the Light at Every Turn :: Melanie Shankle :: I wrote a review already, so you can get all my thoughts over there. But I really loved this book.
Divergent and Insurgent :: Veronica Roth :: Okay, let’s be honest. I would love to put these two in the top 10…but until I read the third book, I just can’t. Because I’m on pins and needles and have heard the ending isn’t good. So I’m waiting until then. BUT these two are wonderful and I’m anxiously trying to get my hands on the third book!
Organized Simplicity: The Clutter-Free Approach to Intentional Living :: Tsh Oxenreider :: It’s simple and beautiful and encouraging. Go read it.
There are many I began in 2013 and am still in the middle of (finals kind of took over). This list isn’t exhaustive, as I’m 100% sure I’m leaving out some of my favorites that I’ve kept in Birmingham so I’ll have them with me next semester. But these right here, they’re some of my favorites.
What did you read and love in 2013? There’s still plenty of time for me to add it to my 2014 list!
