Book Drunkard

“I am simply a 'book drunkard.' Books have the same irresistible temptation for me that liquor has for its devotee. I cannot withstand them.” L.M. Montgomery

Book Drunkard’s Favourite books of 2013

4 Comments


Another year, another great pile of books read!  I didn’t read as many books this year as I did last year.  What with having a new job, I only got to 30 (Last year I read 52).  It’s always so difficult trying to choose from so many wonderful books so again, it was random from my absolute faves.

Here is my ‘best of 2012‘ list and without further ado, in no particular order  – – 2013!

THE FURY TRILOGY BY ELIZABETH MILES:

I know, I know.  This is three books, not one book (I’m cheating here!) and not my usual genre, either.  However, these books sucked me in and didn’t let go.  I’d love to see them made into a TV series.

MRS.  POE BY LYNN CULLEN:

I honestly can’t say enough about this book.  I enjoyed it so, SO much.  Lynn Cullen is amazing.

SEDUCTION BY M. J. ROSE:

I reallyyyy loved this book.  Stunning in every way, it’s the only book I saved a quote from this year.  “If you could just grasp one thread of who you’ve been – of what you’ve lived – you’d be able to reel that past in and earn from all the different souls you’ve been”. 

CONFESSIONS OF MARIE ANTOINETTE BY JULIET GREY:

If you’ve been following my blog for awhile or know me personally, you know how much I love Marie Antoinette.  Well, Juliet Grey does it better than anyone.  The.End.  The word that comes to mind is ‘brilliant’.

MOTHER EARTH FATHER SKY BY SUE HARRISON:

I actually read two books by this author this year and liked them both immensely.  I’m hoping to find the time to read the other books in her trilogies next year.

Two books that I didn’t write reviews for this year were two of the best books I read all year.  I know, I really should write reviews to show my appreciation!  I will one day 🙂

HEMINGWAY’S GIRL BY ERIKA ROBUCK

DEMON: A MEMOIR BY TOSCA LEE

  1. MRS. POE is running with some great company here. I’m thrilled and honored and super grateful. Thanks so much for your support!

  2. Thank you so much!! I’m honored!

  3. Great list! I read Mother Earth Father Sky years ago and it’s a book that really stayed with me. I need to read her others.

    Happy New Year!
