The Silver Lining | Books Read in 2013

It’s time for my annual recap of Books Read this year! I had a goal of 50 books, which was more than I read in 2012, 2011, and 2010 but less than I read in 2009. I’m happy to say I not only reached my goal of 50 books but I surpassed it! A few of these were did-not-finish for me, but I gave each book at least 100 pages before I officially gave up on them. Out of respect for the authors, I won’t say which ones those were but it’s only 4.



Yes, I know Gone Girl came out prior to 2013, but I’m counting it for my list since I personally read it in 2013.


  • Contemporary: 18
  • Sci-fi: 13
  • Paranormal: 10
  • Dystopian: 7
  • Fantasy: 3
  • Ones I Wasn’t Sure How to Classify: 3
  • Young Adult: 48
  • Adult: 3
  • Middle Grade: 2
  • ARCs (acquired at ALA, BEA, Netgalley, or through friends): 29
  • Books Being Turned Into TV Shows Airing in Early 2014: 2
  • Books Being Turned Into Movies: 3 (including Allegiant)
