Today, Cecily will be telling us her Top 13 books of 2013.
Are any of them yours?
My name is Cecily Bonney and I am a total book nerd. I started reading reading books Memorial 2013 and I have read 132 book and here is my top 13 books. I also started a book blog(cecilysbookreview.blogspot.com), yes I was and stil am scared when I write reviews. I have to say that is was so very hard for me, because I have read a lot of books this year. There are more that are just as good as these 13, but they didn’t leave a mark on my heart like these lucky 13 did. So with that being said I will use the words from lucky 13(Touchstone for Play) “Cheers to Memorable Days and Unforgettable Nights”
1. Succumbing to Scars and Sorrow by: Mary E. Palmerin
This book is very near and dear to my heart. Lyla(the main character) is so beautiful, strong, loving, and many other things. This book helped me grow as a person.(sounds crazy, maybe…but very true) I cried like a baby while reading this story and I loved every page. I am looking forward to book 2.
2. Going Under by: S. Walden
As soon as you get to page 1 it says “To strong girls everywhere”, WOW. This book is a lot to swallow. I can relate to this story in one for or another. I can tell you that this is such a raw, emotional, nail biting, wanting to beat someone up story. My heart broke for Brooke….for all the Brooke’s of the world.
3. The Edge of Never by J.A. Redmerski
All I can say is Andrew and Camryn………This book had me on the edge of my seat the whole time. I cried, like sobbing tears. I will forever remember this amazing love story. This book was very inspiring to me. I mean come on…page 1 says “ To lovers and dreamers and anyone who hasn’t truly experienced either”.
4. The Edge of Always by J.A. Redmerski
J.A. Redmerski I bow down to you 100%!!!!!! This is the best book to end the perfect story. My heart broke for Andrew and Camryn over and over again even in book 1, but I mean come on. I have zero unanswered questions on how their life continues. AND that my friends is why I LOVE this book. Unbelievable writing, right here.
5. Painted Faces by L.H. Cosway
I have to admit that I wasn’t sure if I really wanted to read this story, but I am so glad that I did. Nicholas and Freda are so beautiful, strong, broken, and magnetic. This story to me is all about passion and a rare love/friendship that comes once in a lifetime.
6. Whatever it Takes by L. Maretta
This book was so well written, it was as if my friend was telling me this story. Emma and Gavin had me on an emotional merry-go-round. I was angry, sad, happy, laughing, and feeling a little violent while reading this story. BUT this book will have you fighting for love and doing whatever it takes…
7. Remy (Real #3) by Katy Evans
I love me some Remmington Tate aka Riptide. This book to me is more that just a pretty sexy guy. This is about a beautiful broken soul. My heart broke in this book and Remy has me swooning for him for real. I want to go out and save all the Remy’s of the world.
8. Falling into You by Jasinda Wilder
This book was a total shock to me, would of never guessed the outcome. Nell and Kyle have on of those beautiful first love stories and those are the ones you never forget. But then life happens. I am in love with Colton.(sorry had to say that) The playlist…..fits so perfectly with this story.
9. Sometimes Never by: Cheryl McIntyre
Hope and Mason help each other discover that sometimes never can become forever…..I have to say that I am so crushing on Mason and I am jealous of Hope. Mason is so the sweetest book boyfriend I have ever had.
10. Ruin by: Rachel Van Dyken
Wes…Wes…Wes is ummm wow. This book was so intense and I loved every part of it. Just please have tissues with you. That is all I can say.
11. Beautiful Bastard by: Christina Lauren
Bennett Ryan I heart you. He is all kinds of things I don’t know where to start. And yes while reading this book I was so tweeting the authors about this man. This book had be flushed and wanting lots more.
12. Chasing Stars by: L.Duarte
This book is so not like all the other books that I have read, trust me. Portia and Will’s story is so beautiful and very inspiring. This story truly made me want to re-evalute my life. When you know your in love you know and there is nothing you can do about it. When you find that special someone, you never let go. OMG I could go on and on…but I wont….read it for yourself J
13. Touchstone for Play by Sydney Jamesson
