Best reads for 2013




I tried very hard to get the pictures placed together neatly and it never worked. My best books for 2013.

The Crown
Just One Damned Thing After Another
The Husband's Secret
The Mountain of LightFriday Nights





Without Reservations: The Travels of an Independent Woman
With No One as Witness (Inspector Lynley #13)
I've enjoyed reading everyone else's lists so I do hope someone will try mine. I lean towards history and Indian colonial stories with a bit of murder and mystery thrown in. There is one time travel book which was surprisingly so very interesting I couldnt put it down!



Shadows and Strongholds

I loved The Husband's Secret too! I've had Afterwards on my shelf for a while and forgot all about it. Moving it to the top of the pile!

What a wonderful range of books - I hope that 2014 brings you even more wonderful writing.

Lots of interesting books, my dear - sounds great! I think you can place the books better, if you click on them (after clicking, the "Link"-function is switched off and it works better to get pictures placed!)
Happy New Year to you
and best wishes from Austria,
Traude

Afterwards was a book I enjoyed...and so was The Husband's Secret.

I like Joanna Trollope's books, so Friday Nights is going on my list.

Enjoy the New Year, and thanks for visiting my blog.

Putting photos on a blog is always a challenge. I use PicMonkey to make collages.

I haven't read any of the books on your list but will make note of them because many look good.

There are lots of books I haven't read on your list but Mountains of Light sounds like a good one.

A nice mix of books! I hope you discover some great books in the coming year, too! Happy reading.

Laura Fabiani said...

A few of your books are on my list of books to read. That time travel book made it to your best list! Well, I really need to look for it now.

I haven't read any of these, but quite a few sound very interesting! Thanks for the recommendations!

Great list, lots for me to add to my wishlist! I enjoyed Novel in the Viola too, it had a lot more depth than I was expecting but was still a fun read too.

Marce said...

I really wanted to read Sister and Afterwards last year, this year, one of them for sure.

I DNF Husbands Secret, just couldn't get into it but am still considering trying again.

Teddyree said...

So glad The Husband's Secret made your fave list too. A Thousand Days in Tuscany caught my eye and Just One Damn Thing After Another went straight on my wishlist.

Happy New Year :)

Anna said...

Great list! The Husband's Secret is one I've been wanting to read. Happy new year!

A Blessed and Happy New Year to you Mystica.
That is a wonderful collection of best reads. Some of those covers are really striking. I know a few of these authors for good mysteries. I will have to look into some of the titles you mention.
Happy Reading!

Happy New Year! And I am reminded that I wanted to read Black Narcissus and have forgotten to do so! It does sound like a really atmospheric book.

Lisa said...

I just love reading everyone's lists - after a year of adding books to my list, I can really highlight what I need to get to first by looking at the books that each person loved the most.

Leslie (Under My Apple Tree) said...

Nice list. Husband's Secret almost made my list.

An interesting list, Mystica! I have only read Elizabeth George's mysteries although not for several years now (I love her stuff) and have also been meaning to read some Rumer Godden! The Crown also looks very interesting! Happy new year!
