best 2013So it is time again for my annual Favorite Books of the year post. I always have a hard time with this as I read so many wonderful books every year and I am lucky to get exposure to lots of new authors and wonderful stories.

When I think about putting this list together, I try to focus on the books that have stuck with me throughout the year. I read about 200 books a year, lots of them fabulous, but some books just manage to stay in my mind and I pick them up over and over.  Books that have touched me in some way, whether it is the romance or the adventure or the creativity or the emotion.  So while I read tons of books this year, these were my absolute favorites. In no particular order…
