Best Books of 2013

These are my favourite books I read in 2013. There are a combination of teen, new adult, adult and romance. This was my first year in blogging and I just want to thank all my followers. I want to wish everyone a Happy New Year and hope that your 2014 will be a great year filled with joy and happiness.

Books I love read in 2013: (in no particular order)

The whole series keeps on getting better and better. You just never know what is going to happen. The characters in this book are addictive which just makes you want more and more and that ending. OMG that ending. It made me want to fling my e-reader against the wall (thank goodness I didn’t) it was such a huge cliff-hanger.

This book is just AMAZING. This is the 3rd and concluding book in the series. I read this book in the beginning of the year and I still can’t stop thinking about it. I laughed, I cried heavy tears and I swooned. This book evoked every emotion possible. Even today, I still go back and read my favourite parts.

Sweet Evil is enchanting, addictive and downright sinful. I have never read an angel book like this before and I absolutely loved it. The storyline was fast paced and exciting. I couldn’t get enough. The chemistry between the main characters, Anna and Kaiden is explosive.

I was hooked from the very first page of reading this book. This was the first time I read a book from a male’s POV and it was absolutely hilarious. I was laughing so much that people on the bus probably thought I was crazy. I don’t know where this guy comes up with the stuff he says but it is priceless. 

Intense. Raw. Heartbreaking. I don’t even know what to say other than it is AMAZING. It is a beautiful piece of art that left me wanting more even after reading it. This book had me in blubbering tears multiple times. It is utter perfection. Fading is a beautiful story that shows you even through complete darkness, love is extremely powerful.

I loved the description for this book and it is also a unique story. Lick was an addiction for me the 2 days I read it. If I could have blown off work to read it, I would have but unfortunately I couldn’t or else I would have finished the book in 1 day. I was even reading this book all through work because I just could not get enough. It was so good.  Lick is an unconventional love story that will make you swoon.

While reading I highlighted a quote on almost every page. Every book I read by this author I end up getting lost in the world she creates. You have to read this book to know how good the book is. It is a feel good read with a lot of steam.

One of my favourite book couples. I love love love this book. I read both books, Arouse and Allure in about 3 days. This book has a lot of passion, love and heartache. I cried at the end. I feel like these books deal with a lot of issues normal married couples go through. It was just beautiful.

Review: Reckless #3 by S. C. Stephens

Title: Reckless (Thoughless #3)
Author: S.C. Stephens
Release Date: March 5, 2013
Publisher: Gallery Books
Pages: 544
Source: Bought from Amazon

Synopsis: Can love survive when life gets Reckless?
When the band hits it big, Kiera and Kellan must ask themselves: Can their love for each other survive the constant pressures of superstardom? The friendships they've formed, the new family they've found, and the history they've forged will all play a part in helping them navigate the turbulent waters of the band's exploding popularity. A greedy executive hell-bent on success, a declining pop star looking for an edge, and a media circus that twists lies into truths are just some of the obstacles the lovers will have to overcome if they are going to remain together. Fame comes with a price-but will it cost Kiera and Kellan everything? 

My Thoughts:

Reckless is the third and final novel in the Thoughtless series by S.C. Stephens. In Reckless, we start off with The D-Bags about to go on tour to be major rock stars. The record label lets them stay at the house in L.A and this is where they meet a major star, Sienna Sexton. The label wants them to collaborate on a song because Sienna’s career is hitting a snag but this is where the trouble begins. Kellan and Kiera’s relationship is tested time and time again to prove that their love will last. Reckless did not disappoint; even after a few days of finishing the book, I can’t stop thinking about it because it has affected me so much on a personal level.

This series is very different from anything I have ever read. Usually the books I read are about people who have been cheated on but this is a much different perspective. We see Kiera feeling really guilty about hurting Denny even after 2 years of being with Kellan. Kellan and Kiera go through a lot of issues and have to learn to trust each other 100% in order for their relationship to work. Trust and communication becomes 2 of the major identifying factors that keep their relationship going.

I absolutely love Kiera and Kellan. They have grown a lot since Thoughtless. They have both learned a lot from their previous mistakes and are stronger together than they are apart. I love how Kiera has matured in Reckless. When Kiera told Joey to do whatever she wanted with the tape, I had more respect for Kiera than I ever did before. She supports Kellan because she wants him to be happy and successful even though it has the potential to hurt her. I think this is what I love most about Kiera in this book and also because she is not as jealous about Kellan flirting with fans any longer. It shows that she has more confidence in herself and in her relationship.

The other characters like Griffin and Anna have grown a lot and I found myself liking Griffin, where I didn’t really care for him before. After their baby is born, Griffin becomes more responsible (yeah I said it) and I really like how the baby changed him.

I must say I kind of have a new found respect for stars and their private lives after reading this book. The events that occurred are prime examples of how you can’t believe everything you hear on the news (about major stars) because it could be made up. My heart broke for Kiera when she was ridiculed and assaulted by the public because they thought she was the other woman in Kellan’s life. I must say one of my favourite parts is when Kellan confessed the truth at the radio station about his relationship. I read that part over and over again.

This book had me in tears in 3 separate times; not just in tears but a blubbering mess. I felt for Kiera and everything she went through. I am so happy I decided to read the series because every time I read a series by S. C Stephens, she blows my mind. Her other series, the Conversion series, is great as well. I am a huge fan of the author and I am so happy to read whatever she writes next.

5 out of 5 stars
