My Top Ten ADULT Novels I Read in 2013

While filling out my End of Year Book Survey, I realized that I've read A LOT of Adult books this year.  In fact, almost half of the total I've read were Adult.  So for this week's Top 10 Tuesday I thought I'd feature my favorites from the year.

Do you read Adult contemporary? If so, what are some of your favorites?  The ones on my list were all recommended to me, so I'm always looking for the next best thing to read!  Be sure to check out The Broke and the Bookish for more details on this awesome weekly feature.

Sweet Thing by Renee Carlino [add to goodreads]


  1. Oh I love Blue Eyed Devil! I looked up Sweet Thing on Goodreads and it's now on my TBR! I have Godshaped Hole and I really need to read it before it's due back at the library. Great list :)

  2. I can always count on you to provide a fun variety of reads for me! Adding these to my TBR of course. oxo

  3. I love that you did adult novels. You know some of these are among my favorites, too. Especially Truly, I can't wait to read that again once it comes out. I just got Bet Me the other day from the library so I'm excited to read that one since you loved it so much. Holier Than Thou is one I've wanted to read, I was impressed with her YA novel I read last year, I just hate that it's such a hassle to get.

    Happy New Year, lady!

  4. JENNIFER CRUSIE! SARAH MACLEAN! It makes me so happy to see those on your list :) Since I adore both of those ladies. Also, all your other titles I've heard such fantastic things about, so I really need to bump them up my list.

  5. Definitely bookmarking this post because I'm always looking for great adult recs. I just bought several Ruthie Knox books so I'm looking forward to catching up with her work. On the Island is lovely too, and Sweet Thing has me intrigued.
    So many authors I've heard great things about! Thanks for putting some new titles on my radar :)

    Happy New Year and happy reading!

  6. I really enjoyed On The Island and I'm looking forward to reading her 2nd book soon. Ruthie Knox is someone I've only heard of recently but I must try in 2014 - she gets some amazing write ups! Awesome list honey. :-)

  7. Loved On The Island so much. :) And I really need to try out Jill Shalvis. Hope you have a great new year!

  8. W00T! On The Island! Nine Rules! Truly! Star Crossed! Loved all of those too! Now I just need to read more Ruthie Knox this year. :D Oh! And Bet Me! I really need to read that one too!

  9. It makes my heart SO happy to see BED on this list. So so so so so so so infinitely happy. It's just so special when someone falls in love with your favorite book ever <3 I'm also so happy you loved On the Island because its one of my all time favorites too, same with Bet Me! As for Ruthie Knox, SHE ROCKS.

    *cough cough* I really hope to see Julie James on this list next year *wink* *cough*
    (And I really need to read God-Shaped Hole!)
