The Books I Read in 2013

This blog started with a post about the books I had read the previous year, so it only makes sense to re-start it with the books I read in 2013.

Last year, I read 39 books. This includes:

  • 10 YA titles (partly due to a class I took on young adult materials)
  • 6 graphic novels
  • 2 short story collections; and
  • 3 non-fiction titles

Of those 39, here are my top 3, in no particular order.


Beautiful Ruins by Jess Walter – A fascinating narrative structure weaves a tiny Italian town in the 1960’s with modern day Hollywood.

Let’s Explore Diabetes With Owls by David Sedaris – The new Sedaris did not disappoint (unlike the one previous, Squirrel Seeks Chipmunk, which left a lot to be desired).

Fifth Business by Roberston Davies – This was a re-read and it did not disappoint. A Canadian classic and rightfully so.

What were the best novels you read this year?
