Library staff from all over have been tweeting their TOP 10 titles for 2013 over the last 10 days. Check out today's post on EarlyWord to see more details about the 3rd Annual #libfaves Tweetfest which ends today at 11:00 PM Central time.
Listing title, author and a description for each title in 140 characters was a challenge but lots of fun. Below are my Top 10 reads for 2013, on Twitter using the hashtag #libfaves13:
# 10 - SCARLET by Marissa Meyer. Love this revamped,
futuristic fairy tale series; 2nd book in 'Lunar Chronicles' and sequel
# 9 - LONGBOURN by Jo Baker, gives the servants view of the events taking place during Austen's Pride & Prejudice!
# 8 - THE RETURNED by Jason Mott, fascinated by Harold & Lucille's joy & grief at the 'return' of 8-yr old son Jacob
# 7 - FURIES OF CALDERON by Jim Butcher, read by Kate Reading; love Dresden Files, how could I have missed this series!
# 6 - A romance: LORD AND LADY SPY by Shana Galen; 1st in fun series about misunderstandings of married 19th Century British spies
# 5 - READY PLAYER ONE by Ernest Cline, read by Wil Weaton. Wheaton's voice is perfect for this & he gets to cite himself too! :-)
# 4 - THE OUTCASTS by Kathleen Kent; a Western alternately follows a
prostitute & Texas policeman east towards a meeting in New Orleans
# 3 - THE THINKING WOMAN'S GUIDE TO REAL MAGIC by Emily Croy Barker; 1st in new Fantasy series, D Harkness meets Pride & Prejudice
# 2 - LEXICON by Max Barry; Suspense; secret society of 'Poets' manipulate people via language & persuasion, makes you wonder...
and just tweeted this evening, my favorite read for 2013 ...
# 1 - COLD DAYS by Jim Butcher. Harry Dresden is back from dead; cried at end screaming "Nooooo!" - eager for next book!
