best of 2013 (books)

I didn't read nearly as much as I had hoped this past year but I did read some amazing books that will probably be my favorite for years to come! 

The Light Between Oceans is an amazing story with beautiful writing. It's a story of love and loss and will probably break your heart because you can't help but feel connected to the characters. It was a story that I didn't want to end...I wished there were more and more pages. I can't wait to see if/when the author publishes another book. 

I read Harry Potter--books 1-4 starting in the summer and was officially like ten years too late with my Harry Potter obsession. I know I'm one of the few people who hasn't read all of these yet so I won't bother with a synopsis, but I love everything about the magical place that is Hogwarts (I'm a hufflepuff). 

Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talking, was definitely my favorite non-fiction book I read this year. As an introvert I enjoyed reading this book because it was a mini pep talk in a lot of ways and reminded me that I'm actually quite normal! I found it to be a the perfect mixture of statistics and personal stories. 

What were your favorite books of this past year?
