End of the year wrap-up posts are always fun, and don’t worry: I’ll definitely be posting my top reads of 2013. But one thing I looked at last year, which was both surprising and fun, was my top posts of the year. What were the posts and reviews that, for whatever reason, resonated most with my readers. Of course, the homepage and my review database pages are always at the top of that list, but when I removed those, this is what I found for 2013.
This one didn’t surprise me; it was one of my five-star reads for 2013. What did raise my eyebrows is that this was only one of two five-star review of 2013 that made the list!
A big surprise here; this one was a good read, but I didn’t expect it to make this list!
I still love this book, so I was thrilled to see this on the list! I hope it was under a lot of Christmas trees this year.
I cry every time I even think about this book. It is just that good.
I really enjoyed this book when I read it, but considering it’s from 2010, you can bet seeing this review on the list was a big surprise!
This was a top review from 2012 as well, and with the sequel releasing soon, it’s understandable why it made the 2013 list!
This is still one of my favorite South Asian novels, so I’m glad to see that others are still seeking out the review!
This popular women’s novel is by one of the up and coming stars of women’s fiction. If you haven’t checked out Liane Moriarty’s novels yet, you’re really missing out on deep and thought-provoking novels that are sure both surprise and delight you.
It’s always surprising to see which old reviews pop up on this list; this review of an Anita Nair novel is from 2011, yet people are still finding it and reading it. It’s a great book that’s both thoughtful and beautifully written.
And the number one post of 2013 is…(drumroll, please!)
This was a surprise, I’ll admit, especially considering I posted this over halfway through the year! But I’m thrilled to see that people found my review interesting and worthwhile (at least hopefully). It’s a great device that I wholeheartedly recommend.
