Super Six Sunday: Favorites of 2013

Super Six Sunday is a weekly bookish meme hosted by Bewitched Bookworms. It's a way to highlight your top six! It was inspired by Top Ten Tuesday, hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.

Topic:
Super Six Books of 2013 so far!

I have read 60 books so far this year and just started number 61. I have read many fantastic books, it's going to be hard to pick just six, but I shall try.

1. Against the Tide by Elizabeth Camden
Against the Tide was a phenomenal read and in a setting was new and fresh! Love it and it didn't hurt that Alexander Banebridge is the hero.

2. Day of War by Cliff Graham
Day of War...just amazing! It takes you into the world of King David the warrior and his mighty men. It is gritty and bloody (not graphic). The story hooked me!

3. A Noble Groom by Jody Hedlund
Carl Richards....swoon! One of the best heroes I've read. Loved this story!

4. Waterfall by Lisa T. Bergren
Action and adventure in Italy with the Forelli cousins...what more could you want?

5. Happy, Happy, Happy by Phil Robertson
Spoken plainly and to the point, Happy, Happy, Happy is a wonderful account of the life of Phil Robertson through his struggles and success in his life and giving all the credit to God.

6. Anomaly by Krista McGee
Dystopian! Love dystopian! Anomaly was set in new and unique setting. It brought you into the story from page one and left you wanting more on the last page.

What are your Super Six for the year so far?

Nice list! :) I LOVED Against the Tide (was one of my faves of 2012), and Waterfall and Anomaly are great books! I still have to finish A Noble Groom...here's hoping I fall in love with the hero. ;)

I've marked 3 as favorites on Shelfari so far this year:

~ Grave Consequences by Lisa T. Bergren
~ Recalled by Cambria Hebert (YA)
~ Songstone by Lena Goldfinch (YA)

If I were to pick three more of the books I've read so far this year as ones I really enjoyed, I think I'd have to go with...

~ Scarlet by Marissa Meyer (YA)
~ Mistaken by Karen Barnett
~ The Ryn by Serena Chase (YA)

(My Fair Godmother, another YA book, was really fun to read, too!)

Love the look of Anomaly! And I just read the description on Goodreads and holy heck does that sound intense. Adding to my TBR for sure.

I loved Anomaly - like LOVED it. I can't wait for Luminary!!

Heather said...

Happy Happy Happy was good? I watch Duck Dynasty, but I wasn't planning on picking up the book. I'm tempted to pick up Uncle Si's though, he's too funny so that might be a riot. And Day of War sounds like my kind of book. Adding to my list right now!

Amber, I hope you enjoy The Noble Groom! Carl makes the story. :-) I agree, Grave Consequences was good too! I haven't heard of the others you mentioned. I need to check into them! Thank you for sharing! :-)

Kate said...

Tanya, Happy to help! :-) I hope you enjoy them!

Kate said...

Allie, Anomaly was great! The sequel Luminary comes out January 7th, not a long wait as all! Hope you enjoy it if you read it. :-)

Kate said...

Sharrice, Thanks for stopping by! All these authors were new to me this year. It's been fun reading so far. :-)

Kate said...

Jamie, Yay for another Anomaly lover! :-) I'm with you, can't wait!

Kate said...

Heather, Happy, Happy, Happy was really good. It gave a good insight into Phil's life and the Duck Commander bisness. It had some series parts, but there was also many laughs. Reading it was like having him talk to you. It was good! I love Duck Dynasty as well.

I can't wait for Uncle Si's book! He is one of my favorites.

Day of War is a gripping story. I couldn't put it down.

So I just found your blog through Bout of Books and I can already tell we have a lot in common when it comes to books!

Against the Tide, Waterfall, A Noble Groom, and Anomaly are all books that I absolutely loved!

I don't know if I could pick six favorites this year since I had trouble trimming my favorites to 20 in June! So many good books this year!

Kate said...

Hi Abbi! I've seen your blog and saw that we have similar taste with books. There are some wonderful books out there by some wonderful authors.

It was hard to pick just six! There have been so many. I could keep going. :-)

Thank you for stopping by!
