Welcome to Top Ten Tuesday! Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish. Each week bloggers post a top ten list related to a specific theme. This week's theme is Top Ten Books I Read In 2013. These books are all SF&F. I did a non-genre list of the top ten books I read in 2013 previously. All links lead to GoodReads.
1. The Darkest Minds by Alexandra Bracken
This is a great post-apocalyptic/dystopian YA story about kids with psychic abilities.
2. His Majesty's Dragon by Naomi Novik
There are talking dragons that fight in the Napoleonic Wars! The later books are fun, but none are as good as the first book in this series.
3. Doomsday Book by Connie Willis
Oxford student Kivrin decides to go back in time to study how people celebrated Christmas in the Middle Ages. Things go horribly wrong.
4. Among Others by Jo Walton
One can argue that this book is not a fantasy story. In any matter, the protagonist is a teenager girl who reads a lot of SF&F books that she gets from interlibrary loan.
5. Feed by Mira Grant
Zombies done right.
6. The Lies of Locke Lamora by Scott Lynch
Although I enjoyed all three of the Gentleman Bastards series, I loved the first book the most.
7. The Curse of Chalion by Lois Bujold Masters
This is a great political intrigue story set in a fantasy realm. This story is far less confusing than A Game of Thrones.
8. A Natural History of Dragons: A Memoir by Lady Trent by Marie Brennan
This is a great memoir of a woman who studies dragons.
9. Ready Player One by Ernest Cline
A great book for a child of the 80s who loves video games and SF&F.
10. Leviathan Wakes by James SA Corey
This is space opera at its best.
