Top 10 favorite books of 2013!

At the end of each year, the bookworm inside of me loves to look over all the beautiful books I finished that year, and write out my top 10 favorites. And then I share it with you.

In no particular order, my favorite reads of 2013:


Through Gates of Splendor by Elisabeth Elliot {my review}

The Story Girl by L.M. Montgomery {my review}

The Discovery of the Titanic by Robert D. Ballard {my review}

The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis {my review}

Three Men in a Boat by Jerome K. Jerome {my review}

Crocodile on the Sandbank by Elizabeth Peters {my review}

Start Here by Alex & Brett Harris {my review}

Bleak House by Charles Dickens {my review}

The Boys in the Boat by Daniel James Brown {my review}

Promise Me This by Cathy Gohlke {my review}


Truly, I had read toooo many good books past this year! It made very hard decisions for me, on which went into my official top 10 list. So, there are just a few more titles that deserve, at the least... honorable mentions:

The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie by Alan Bradley {my review}

The Wind in the Willows by Kenneth Grahame {my review}

Unsinkable: The Full Story of the RMS Titanic by Daniel Allen Butler {my review}

The Birds' Christmas Carol by Kate Douglas Wiggin {my review}

  1. Glad to see that you enjoyed "The Discovery of the Titanic" as much as I did, Tarissa. :)

    I didn't know (until now) that you started reading Narnia books, but I'm always happy when my friends read those!

    You really need to read Oliver Twist sometime too.

  4. I used to re-read The Birds' Christmas Carol every year at the holidays. Must remember to borrow it from the library next December.
