It’s Top 10 Tuesday, which is hosted at The Broke and the Bookish and the topic is:
Top Ten Books I Read in 2013
2013 was quite a year for me in terms of my reading taste. I picked up books that I normally don’t read. I picked up books by authors that I have never heard of and loved the books or didn’t like them that much, but gave them another chance. I rediscovered authors that I used to read and for one reason or another just stopped one day. With 2013 ending tonight at midnight, here is my list of my Top Ten Books. There are a lot of books that I didn’t include on here, otherwise it would have been like top 50 or something 🙂

Perfect Ruin by Lauren DeStefano
The Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman

Thankless In Death by J.D. Robb
I was looking at the calendar a few days ago to see what I had coming up and realized that in a few more days 2013 will be gone and we will be ringing in 2014. It seems like it was just yesterday that we welcomed in 2013, awaiting all the new things that we were going to get accomplished during this year. What happened to those resolutions and promises that you made to yourself? Did you accomplish them or did you just slowly fall off the wagon that everyone hops on at the start of every year?

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.
Hungry by H.A. Swain
Publication Date: June 3, 2014
Publisher: Feiwel & Friends
Synopsis: In the future, foodis no longer necessary—until Thalia begins to feel something unfamiliar and uncomfortable. She’s hungry.
In Thalia’s world, there is no need for food—everyone takes medication (or “inocs”) to ward off hunger. It should mean there is no more famine, no more obesity, no more food-related illnesses, and no more war. At least that’s what her parents, who work for the company that developed the inocs, say. But when Thalia meets a boy who is part of an underground movement to bring food back, she realizes that most people live a life much different from hers. Worse, Thalia is starting to feel hunger, and so is he—the inocs aren’t working. Together they set out to find the only thing that will quell their hunger: real food.
H. A. Swain delivers an adventure that is both epic and fast-paced. Get ready to be Hungry.
Personal Thoughts: This grabbed my interest as soon as I read that they didn’t eat real food. Imagine that! This concept is really interesting and I definitely want to see how this story goes. It sounds like it will be a great read full of adventure and suspense. Just the type of book I’d love to read. 🙂
What are you waiting on this Wednesday?
