My Favorite Reads of 2013

My reading goals for the year changed when I became the Whitney President.  I figured, whatever I could get to, that was my goal.  I hoped to read 75, and I was around 90 for the year.  Give or take. :)
That being said, it was a great year for reading.  I enjoyed everything I read immensely.
Here are some of my favorites.  In no particular order:

The Runaway King by Jennifer A. Nielsen
The Reluctant Blogger by Ryan Rapier
Just Ella by Annette Larsen
Esther the Queen by H.B. Moore
I, Spy
I, Spy by Jordan McCollum
Longing for Home
Longing for Home by Sarah M. Eden
Winter Queen by Amber Argyle
The Believer and The Witnesses by Stephanie Black
Sky Jumpers Cover
Sky Jumpers by Peggy Eddleman
Blackmoore by Julianne Donaldson
I also enjoyed:

Guardians by Heather Frost
Hearth Fires by Dorothy Keddington
Allegiant by Veronica Roth
Feudlings series by Wendy Knight
A Change of Plans by Donna K. Weaver
The Elite and The Selection by Kiera Cass
A Way Back to You by Emily Gray Clawson
