Top 10 Books I Read in 2013

Top 10 Books of 2013 // Genpink

I set a goal to read 30 books this year and until I got a reminder email from Goodreads I had lost track of how many I’d actually read. Turns out I read 17 books from January to December. I may finish another 1 or 2 before year end. Overall with how busy my year was I’m happy that I managed to get to 17. I think it helps that I usually have one going via audiobook while I’m driving and another via physical book or Kindle for my down time. I subscribe to a few email lists that send out random free kindle books so I think that may be why there were quite a few of the titles that I wasn’t too fond of. Am I the only one who has a difficult time stopping in the middle of a “meh” book or turning off a boring movie? I keep thinking, “maybe it’ll get better soon.” Speaking of Goodreads, if you have an account send me a friend request!

Here’s the Top 10 Books I Read this Year (in no particular order):

(note: this list is an embedded scrolling list. I’m not sure how it will show up for email subscribers and those reading via mobile – would love comments/feedback about it)

I just upgraded from the original Kindle to the new Kindle Paperwhite
(which is backlit) so I have a feeling I’ll be reading more in 2014. What was your favorite read this year?

  1. I love Emily Giffin. I have that book but haven’t had a chance to read it. I’m also reading The Happiness Project but haven’t finished it. I started it over a year ago and just haven’t pushed through finishing it. Sometimes I find that nonfiction just really doesn’t hold my attention. I think that’s partly cause I read every day for work so when I read something fiction, I can get swept up in the story.

  2. I had a hard time getting into Happiness Project the first time I tried to read it (probably a year ago). But then I switched to the audiobook and it felt much more like a story of her learnings. I was able to digest it much more as a whole after I switched formats.
