Best read of 2013 - Happy New Years!!

We have arrived at the last day of 2013. It has been a mixed year with some truly joyful moments and I am looking forward to seeing what 2014 brings. This year has been full of reading. I managed to surpass my goal of reading 60 books and read 70 which I was super chuffed with. The majority of these were young adult fiction and I have enjoyed them all to varying degrees. I hope to read 80 books next year and have set myself a goal of half of them being new authors! I noticed after looking over my books of this year that I have got very stuck in which authors I am reading and I want to branch out a bit further. Having said that I have a lot of final installments to read of several series so I will be reading a few familiar ones as well.

It was really hard to pick which book I had enjoyed the most this year. I have discovered some really superb stories and authors in my reading journey. So after much thought I decided that my most enjoyed read of this year was...

Gone by Michael Grant

I loved this book so much. I was hooked from the very first chapter due to the superb plot construction, characters and pace. I have also enjoyed reading the rest of the series and am really excited to read the final book Light next year. I loved this series so much that I have bought copies so that I can re-read it at another point and also lend it to my friends and family (I am desperately trying to convince my hubby to give it a go). I reviewed this book earlier in the year and to my utmost joy the author himself commented on it which was a real blogging highlight. 

Wishing you all a happy new year!
