Our Book of the Year 2013

Monique

Choosing only one book from the amazing experiences I have had in 2013 through the pages of a book is nigh on impossible! Every one of my favourite reads are just that, because for many different reasons they have touched a place in my heart… made me feel and fall in love, that heady experience that we all know and love, that authors through their immense talent, enable us to relive time and time again. The biggest part for me, I suppose is falling in love with the characters, and that is the reason I have chosen Catch a Ghost by SE Jakes… not only is she an extremely talented author but she creates characters that I love, her story lines and world building have completely enthralled me, full of intrigue with all action alpha hero’s… I couldn’t ask for more…  and this year I fell head over heels in love with Prophet and Tommy… and long may the love affair continue.

Mark

Memorizing YouSeriously a tough question, with so many fantastic reads from 2013 it really is next to impossible to choose. However, if pushed the book that really sticks in my mind is Memorizing You by Dan Skinner, so I have to concur with Tina on this. The writing was beautiful, the characters were all brought to life and the emotions behind the words were astounding. I was crying rivers of bitter sweet tears at the end of the book. It stayed with me and haunted me for days after. This book taught me once again that life is seriously short and it's not often you get second chances either, but when you do you should never let them go. So for all of you out there with this book on your TBR, then do yourselves a favour and bump it up to the top of the list.

King MaiPicking the best book of 2013 for me is a really hard one because so many could fit the bill. I think every time I rated a book 5 stars, it became my ' fave' until the next came along, but if I HAVE to pick the one that stayed with me the longest after I'd read it then it has to be King Mai by Edmond Manning because it touched me in ways I'd never felt before and blew me away with its inventiveness and depth of emotion. Edmonds voice is truly unique and so is his concept of the lost kings. An amazing book amongst many, many others!

Tina

Memorizing YouMemorizing You by Dan Skinner.

It’s hard to put into a few words what I feel about it. Memorizing You is about first, young love and forgiveness. It's about being strong and never giving up in what you have found in another human being. About dreaming of a better, more caring and loving world. It's about love, respect and commitment regardless of gender. It's about secrets and loss. Especially the beautiful sadness grabbed me and I learned something vital. That happiness is a gift, and we should take it a day at a time. It’s a sublime, poetic and intense story, definitely my favorite read 2013.

  30. Thank you for the chance! Incidentally, I'd like to also thank you for being one of the few blogs that I follow who read/review M/M fiction. As a queer person myself, I get a little tired of never seeing any representation for books in the GLBT categories represented out there in anything since these writers work every bit as hard and produce books that are also amazing to get less than half the recognition they deserve for it. If you ever decide to start reviewing F/F fiction, you guys will become my one-stop-shop blog! LOL!

  32. I'm not surprised by most of the books that made the top of the lists. Some of these were in my top ten and two more have been sitting on my wish list.

  96. Thank you for giveaway! I read my 1st M/M last month and I thought it would scare the shit out of me but surprisingly it didn't. Tina Folsom's book Thomas's Choice was so good! But I've got her previous books that were all M/F this was the first time for me! It was so sweet and I wasn't uncomfortable reading it, but yet I don't like reading F/F books I've tried and just don't like it.
