My Top Reads & Sees of 2013

If you’ve been following the blog for awhile, you’ll have heard me mention the Fifty/Fifty challenge that I do. You can see the full list of all the movies and shows I’ve watched, and all of the books I’ve read this year on that page. But awhile back Kara gave me the idea to do round-up of my favorites from this year’s challenge, and that’s what you’re getting today. Keep in mind that this is culled from a list of things I happened to read or see this year, not necessarily things that were new/came out this year. So, without further ado:


Top 5 Books

  • Code Name Verity
  • MWF Seeking BFF
  • Room
  • Throne of Glass series (2 books so far)
  • City of Dark Magic series (2 books so far)

Top 5 Movies/Shows

  • About Time
  • Much Ado About Nothing (Joss Whedon version)
  • The Intouchables
  • Les Miserables
  • House of Cards (season 1)

How about you? What were your favorite things you saw or read this year?


  1. Code Name Verity & the Throne of Glass books are my list for next year, I have heard nothing but good things about them.
    My top reads for the year were The Scorpio Races, The Raven Boys, & Daughter of Smoke and Bone. And movies were Thor 2 and The Hobbit 🙂 I keep meaning to watch Les Mis as well

    1. I really enjoyed The Raven Boys series and Smoke & Bone series so far, too! Waiting for the next books of each. I haven’t gotten around to The Scorpio Races yet, or seeing the 2nd part of The Hobbit. They’re on my to-do list!
