It’s Heather here today sharing my ….

Super Six Books of 2013 so far!

I’ve only read 38 books this year, but I’ve read a few that have been so good that I just need to stop and share them. 

ComeAliveThere haven’t been that many series that have grabbed my attention and held it lately, made me really need to read the next book ASAP like the new adult horror/romance Experiment in Terror series by Karina Halle. The seventh book was super creepy, steamy, angsty, and just oh so good.  (Goodreads / Amazon / My Review)


False Memory was one of my favorite books of 2012, and the second book in this series, False Sight packed as much of a thrilling punch as the first one did. I loved the sci-fi parallel world turn this book took, and Dan Krokos isn’t afraid to take the characters into dark places. (Goodreads / Amazon / My Review)


I loved the Beautiful Creatures series that Margaret Stohl and Kami Garcia wrote together, so I was eager to check out the books that they’re putting out on their own. And I was blown away by Icons. I listened to the audiobook, and all I can say is that was the perfect way to ingest this book. Simply emotional, heartbreaking, lyrical, and perfect. Pushy and I will be reviewing this book soon. (Goodreads / Amazon)


Shades of Earth, the final installment of this sci-fi trilogy by Beth Revis was a highly anticipated book on my list. It was a highly emotional, action packed, and high-stakes finale as they fight for their lives on Centari Earth, which was their final destination all along. (Goodreads / Amazon / Pushy and Heather’s Review )


Ah, The Fury–horror at it’s finest. This book ranks up in my top ten of books for the last few years. Gritty, scary, smart and unique characterizations, and one of the longest books at nearly 700 awesome pages. (Goodreads / Amazon / My Review)


Charley Davidson’s snark and Reyes’ sexiness are in fine form in this fifth installment of Darynda Jones’ Charley Davidson Grim Reaper series. Each book keeps getting better and better, and I seriously can’t wait for the next one to come out. The stakes are raised in each of these books as the mythology grows incrementally. And the ending of this one was a jaw dropper. (Goodreads / Amazon / Danny and Heather’s Review)


What books of that you’ve read in 2013 have blown you away? Are there any that you can’t stop recommending to other people?

  1. Ooh thanks for sharing this list! I have read the first 2 books in the Revis trilogy, but not Shades of the Earth yet. Seeing it on your Top 6 list reminded me that I need to get to it.

    You definitely need to wrap up this series. Shades of Earth is a great final book, Tanya.

  2. I loved Shades of Earth too, even though I thought it had a completely different feeling than the rest of the series.
    After reading your list I think I will need to check out Icons and Come Alive. They both seem like the kind of book I would love.

    I liked that Shades of Earth was different, made me like it that much more. Come Alive is much different from the rest of the series since it’s the seventh book, but it’s also the only book told from the male main character’s POV. The rest of the series is from the female’s POV so the vibe is very different. You might want to start with book #1, Darkhouse, which is free on Amazon.
