Best of 2013 Giveaway Hop

Woot, I love this giveaway hop’s theme :D. It’s the perfect opportunity for me to push books on you all! So, now I need to figure out what my favorite 2013 books were for you to choose from…. (If the book isn’t out yet, then I’ll do a pre-order for you :) ) If you suspect that I meant to include a book but forgot, I’m happy to include any four or five star book reviewed this year or prequels so that you can enjoy the book in the future.

Fragile Brilliance by Tammy Blackwell Ironskin by Tina Connolly Vicious by Victoria Schwab Cracked by Eliza Crewe Cress by Marissa Meyer Review Pawn by Aimée Carter ARC Bang by Lisa McMann Kinslayer by Jay Kristoff Review These Broken Stars by Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner Magic Rises by Ilona Andrews The Bitter Kingdom by Rae Carson Through the Ever Night

Okay, I can’t take it, all the button clicking! There are more that I adored, but this is the list that I can think of currently. Like I said above, any four or five star rating reviewed this year is fair game along with prequels in case you need to read them first ;-).

This giveaway is going to be through The Book Depository so it is open internationally as long as TBD ships to you! You can pick any one book from my Best of 2013 list(s) :D. The winner has 48 hours to respond, please don’t cheat! Check my giveaways page for the rest of the normal rules.
