Best of 2013 Giveaway Hop!

Best of 2013 Hop

Welcome to my stop on the Best of 2013 Giveaway Hop! This awesomely HUGE hop is hosted by Mary at Bookhounds & Kathy at I Am a Reader, Not a Writer. Over 200 blogs are participating, so check out and enter my giveaway, then hop on over to the next blog! I had so many favorites this year, and these books are just a very small sample of some of the best books I read. Want to win one of them? One international winner will get to select one of the following, in either print or e-book form:

1. The Blue Blazes by Chuck Wendig. This will always be the year I read my first Wendig book. I adored this book so much, it’s hard to put into words. You can read my review here.

2. Vicious by V.E. Schwab. This is also the year I read my first Victoria Schwab book! It truly was a great year for reading. Vicious was beyond amazing. You can read my review here.

3.  The Kings and Queens of Roam by Daniel Wallace. For those of you who are more into contemporary folktales, this might fit the bill. You can read my review here.

4. Three by Jay Posey. An awesomely original fantasy, and only the first in a series, so there’s more on the way. You can read my review here.

5. In the Shadow of Blackbirds by Cat Winters. I read this back in March, but it still resonates with me today. A beautifully written and carefully researched YA paranormal. You can read my review here.

6. Splintered by A.G. Howard. If you love fairy tale retellings, you’ll love Howard’s take on Alice in Wonderland. And if you haven’t read this yet, it’s a great time to pick it up, because the sequel comes out in January! You can read my review here.
