Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Books Read So Far in 2013

June 25, 2013

I was going through my Goodreads list in preparation of this post, and disappointingly, I found only a handful of five stars. Out of the 100+ books that I've read so far this year, only 6 got a five star. I guess that can be seen in a number of ways. Either a lot of my read this year have been crappy (which is true), or else I'm pretty exacting (which is also true). But still, I'm pretty sad that I've had such few five star reads, and I'm determined to increase the quality of books I read this year from now on.

So here are my top 10 reads of this year so far, in no particular order: (Images, as usual, link to Goodreads :)

The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern (my review)

The Sea of Tranquility by Katja Millay

The Fault in Our Stars by John Green

Vain by Fisher Amelie

Gravity by Melissa West

Divergent by Veronica Roth

Delirium by Lauren Oliver (my review)

Amplified by Tara Kelly

Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell (my review)

Whiskey Beach by Nora Roberts

This is kinda funny, but I just realised that all of my top reads have beautiful covers. Huh. I guess covers do go a long way in getting you to pick up a book. Definitely for me, atleast. Though I have found books that are wonderful, but they're covers are not so much.

So do we share any of our top reads this year? 
Or have you read any of these and what do you think of them?
Leave me comment below with a link to your TTT post, and I'll make sure to stop by! :)
