41 books I read in 2013 got a 5 star rating. This is actually a huge deal for me since I only gave 27 5 stars in 2012. The longest book I read this year was Monsters by Ilsa J.Bick with 688 pages. I read that trilogy back to back which wasn`t as hard as I initially thought it would be. Note: Ashes had 480 pages, Shadows 528.

Best book of 2013
Whenever someone asked me what my favorite book of 2013 was, they always got the same response. It was a book I couldn`t wait to get into my hands because I loved everything about the first novel and the short story. The main character, the prose, the romance and the villain who actually isn`t a real villain. I`m pretty sure the author can`t do wrong with me, unless she kills of my man. Then we`ll have a BIG problem.
It`s Unravel Me by Tahereh Mafi. I mean, this lady! She`s my favorite author. Yep, she`s surpassed Richelle Mead. I love her that much. Tahereh created my flawed King Warner. Adam`s ass should just give up. There`s just no way he has a future with Juliette. Meanwhile, King Warner is just flawfree even he obviously isn`t perfect but it's a person's imperfections that make them perfect for someone else. I`m quoting Lola and the Boy Next Door.
