Lisarenee | 2046 comments The Goodreads Choice Awards are almost at an end, and choosing just one book can be maddening. So I'm curious--What were your favorite reads from 2013? I have to confess, I always have a hard time choosing. Did you find any new authors or series? You don't have to stick to books published in 2013, they just need to be ones you read this year.

Mike | 353 comments I have to add Ready Player One by Ernest Cline, I just finished it and I loved it. Also have to add NOS4A2 by Joe Hill. It reminds me of his Locke and Key series both of which are amazing.
