It's book chat day and I'm co-hosting!  A big thanks to Jessica over at The Tangerine, thanks lady :)  Today's topic is your Top 10 of 2013.  It can be any type of top 10.  Top authors, audio books, book covers, etc.  I'm going with My Top 10 Reads of 2013.  My goal was to read 40 25 books this year. I'm on book #17!  There's always next year, right? Haha!  Well, out of the 16 books I've read I do have my 10 favorites.  

Check them out ~

10.  Joyland, by Stephen King.
This was my first Stephen King novel that I've ever read.  I liked it, but it definitely wasn't what I was expecting.  I thought it was going to be super scary and spooky.  It wasn't at all.  It was more of a drama.  Don't get me wrong, it was good.  I was hoping it to be scary!

9.  Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children, by Ransom Riggs
Weird!  It was definitely interesting and leave A LOT to the imagination.  I have a very vivid imagination, so mine went wild.

8.  Vader's Little Princess, by Jeffrey Brown
This was such a cute little book.  I read it while standing in the book aisle at Target.  It's super short and really for kids.  Darth Vader is raising Princess Leia and we see her grow up to a teenager and then fall in love.  It's really funny.

7.  Homer's Odyssey, by Gwen Cooper
I love books about animals, especially cats.  Homer is a blind kitten that Gwen rescues.  It's a wonderful story!

6.  Sharp Objects, by Gillian Flynn
I love this author!  Her stories are dark, but so interesting.  This is her first novel and for a first novel it is intriguing.

5. The Best of Me, by Nicholas Sparks
I love Nicholas Sparks!!!!!!!!!  His books are somewhat predictable, but I still love them all.  I went to a book signing of his where he spoke and we got to ask him questions.  So many of his novels are based on his family and are true stories.  AMAZING!

4.  The Girl Who Played With Fire, by Stieg Larsson
Book #2 in the Dragon Tattoo series.  I can't wait to read the third one!

3.  Dark Places, by Gillian Flynn
I just can't stay away!  I want her to write more!!!!!!!!!

2.  The Night Circus, by Erin Morgenstern
This book is so magical and I'm not just saying that because it's about magic.  The life Erin brings to the page through the characters and her writing is so lovely.

1.  The Great Gatsby, by F. Scott Fitzgerald
This is currently my all time favorite book!
