Top 10 of 2013: Best Book Covers

Merry Christmas! Day 2 is for the best book covers I've seen this year. The book MUST be released in 2013 and since there are a lot of gorgeous covers I've seen around this year, I chose my top 10 from the books I've also read this year to narrow down my choices. By the end of this post, you'll know that I love book covers that actually tells me something about the story.

Top 10 of 2013: Best Books I've Read

It's kind of tough to think about picking my Top 10 this 2013 out of more than 100 books I've read this year. And it has been a wonderful reading year for me. Looking back, it's actually not as hard as I imagined to pinpoint the books that have left a huge mark in me. There are a lot of them. Now the problem is to choose 10 that tops it all. And I have mine here now! These book are the ones that made an impression that even though hundreds of books and days have passed since I last read it, just hearing about it again makes me travel back to that time when I am actually reading it.

So here they are:

Rebel Spring
(Falling Kingdoms #2)
by Morgan Rhodes, Michelle Rowen
Published: December 3, 2013
The Book Depository

Love, power, and magic collide with war in the second book of the Falling Kingdoms series.

Auranos has fallen and the three kingdoms—Auranos, Limeros, and Paelsia—are now united as one country called Mytica. But still, magic beckons, and with it the chance to rule not just Mytica, but the world...

When the evil King Gaius announces that a road is to be built into the Forbidden Mountains, formally linking all of Mytica together, he sets off a chain of events that will forever change the face of this land, forcing Cleo the dethroned princess, Magnus the reluctant heir, Lucia the haunted sorceress, and Jonas the desperate rebel to take steps they never could have imagined.

Release Day Blitz + Excerpt: Savor by Kate Evangelista

Savor (Vicious Feast #1)
by Kate Evangelista

Mature and explicit content. Not recommended for readers below 18-years-old. Yup, you’ve got to be that old to read my story. Consider yourself warned.

I’m Dakota Collins, a tough talking, eye patch wearing, workaholic photography student. Why am I important? Well, maybe because I get to spend an entire month with Vicious, only the sickest indie rock band out there.

You see, I needed a subject for my Spring Showcase introspective in order to graduate. During a chance encounter at a club I’d been sent to cover for the Daily Gossip, our ironically named college paper, the features writer I usually teamed up with introduced me to the band—by accident, I might add. It involved a run in with a scary, bald bodyguard. Anyway, long story short, I signed a contract to take pictures of Vicious.

I should have known their handsome yet way too serious for his own good bassist, Luka Visraya, wouldn’t be able to keep his hands to himself. He’s gorgeous and all, but the way he smiles spelled trouble with a capital L. I’m in for a long month with him around.

Crazy shit happens and then some. So, if you want the skinny on Vicious and the events revolving around my stay at Lunar Manor, read my story.

Again, refer to the warning above.

Review: Untold by Sarah Rees Brennan

Untold (The Lynburn Legacy #2)
by Sarah Rees Brennan
Published: September 24, 2013

Free from bonds, but not each other

It’s time to choose sides… On the surface, Sorry-in-the-Vale is a sleepy English town. But Kami Glass knows the truth. Sorry-in-the-Vale is full of magic. In the old days, the Lynburn family ruled with fear, terrifying the people into submission in order to kill for blood and power. Now the Lynburns are back, and Rob Lynburn is gathering sorcerers so that the town can return to the old ways.

But Rob and his followers aren’t the only sorcerers in town. A decision must be made: pay the blood sacrifice, or fight. For Kami, this means more than just choosing between good and evil. With her link to Jared Lynburn severed, she’s now free to love anyone she chooses. But who should that be?
