For me it is a tie between Seraphina and The Night Circus. Both books really struck a cord with me. Hartman and Morgenstern did a marvelous job creating unique worlds that I wanted to actively be a part of. I read The Night Circus in one day which rarely happens for me. I wish someone would write music to go along with Seraphina. Music plays such a big part for the main character that's you can almost feel the pages vibrate with it.
The other books that made my list:
- The Lunar Chronicles: Cinder and Scarlet by Marissa Meyer
- The Secret Keeper by Kate Morton
- Redshirts by John Scalzi
Looking back at my 2013 Read list, I would add one more book. I just keep recommending it to my friends so it would be shame not to add it to the list. Traveler by Dennis W. Green. It was the first book I reviewed on my blog.
