Twenty Boy Summer by Sarah Ockler: This book made me ugly cry like no other. I can`t believe I waited so long to read it.
Th3teen R3asons Why by Jay Asher: Again, another ugly cry book. That being said, I loved the idea/concept of this book so much. It was truly haunting.
Never Enough by Denise Jaden: Wow, is all I can say about this book. It not only dealt with eating disorder issues but it also did it in a way that shows how a family can be torn apart by it while also dealing with their own problems.
Scarlet by Marissa Meyer: Okay, I don't know if this is cheating because it only comes out in 2013 but I read it in 2012 so I'm counting it. Since I make the rules, I think this is A-OK. Anyhow, I wasn't too sure about Cinder when I read but wanted to continue with the story and I was not disappointed. I liked this better than the first!
Fixing Delilah by Sarah Ockler: This was my introduction to Sarah Ockler and I love love love her books! This book definitely hit home and reminded me a bit of growing up and trying to find my way as a teen.
Forbidden by Tabitha Suzuma: This book was so disturbing but it worked. Again, another book that hit close to home. No- not the incest part but the part about a less than ideal living situation and the bonds it forms between siblings. Again let me say that it was not the incest part.
Insurgent by Veronica Roth: I think this on EVERYONE'S list but I had to add it in as well. I love where the story is going and I can't wait to read more.
The Evolution of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin: Again this is on most people's list. I can see why. One word: Noah! Oh and I guess one phrase that comes to mind WTF.
This Miseducation of Cameron Post by Emily M. Danforth: If I had to pick my all-time favourite it would be this book. It deals with a teen trying to come to terms with her homosexuality in a highly Christian world. LOVED IT!
Pandemonium by Lauren Oliver: Another second in a series and it left off in another cliffhanger. 2013 is going to be a great year for endings.
Pushing the Limits by Katie McGarry: This book is excellently written and deals with all kinds of contemporary issues. It made me cry and I wasn't expecting it.
Second Chance Summer by Morgan Matson: Oh dear, what's with the ugly crying books this year. They all seem to be my faves. This one was a great read.
Trafficked by Kim Purcell: This book is about human trafficking and not into prostitution which is the kind of book I have never read before. It was intriguing.
Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi: I listened to this as an audiobook and quite enjoyed. I can't wait to see how the series progresses in 2013.
Well there were a lot and like I say I make the rules so I hope you enjoyed. Stay tuned tomorrow for my fave adult reads of 2013.
