The Best of 2013

This year has been a big year for me. I suppose the best thing is that, in August, I finally published my novel The Forest's Heir. That was the highlight of the entire year. There have been bad things, and the last year has been a struggle in some ways. So I thought I'd end the year with some of my favorite things about the year. So here are my picks for the Top Ten books (young adult--for the most part), movies, and TV shows of the year.

Top Ten Books of 2013

  1. The Fiery Heart by Richelle Mead
  2. The Indigo Spell by Richelle Mead
  3. The White Princess by Phillipa Gregory
  4. Allegiant by Veronica Roth
  5. Curtsies and Conspiracies by Gail Carriger
  6. House of Hades by Rick Riordan
  7. The Elite by Kiera Cass
  8. Girl of Nightmares by Kendare Blake
  9. The Fall of Five by Pittacus Lore
  10. Clockwork Princess by Cassandra Clare
Trust me, this list was hard for me to put together (with the exception of the top 3). In all honesty, everything else is kind of tied for 4th place.

Top Ten Movies of 2013

  1. Thor: The Dark World
  2. The Hobbit: Desolation of Smaug
  3. Iron Man 3
  4. The Hunger Games: Catching Fire
  5. Fast and Furious 6
  6. Star Trek: Into Darkness
  7. The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones
  8. Grown Ups 2
  9. Now You See Me
  10. The Purge
This one, actually, was pretty easy.

Top Ten TV Shows of 2013

Just note, that doesn't mean that these are new shows. I just mean MY top ten watched shows.

  1. Doctor Who
  2. Real Housewives of Atlanta
  3. Sleepy Hollow
  4. Almost Human
  5. Mob Wives: New Blood
  6. Storage Wars
  7. Being Human
  8. Reign
  9. The Walking Dead
  10. Mythbusters
What can I say, I'm a bit of a nerd, and I like reality TV.

Here's to a good 2014, and the hope that we'll have as many great books and movies next year as we did this year!
