The challenge for today is to answer the following questions about the books I've read in 2013.
Best Book of 2013
This is a tough one, as I've read quite a few excellent books this year, but I'm going to go with The Dance (The Restoration Series #1) by Dan Walsh and Gary Smalley. This book completely wowed me.

Worst Book of 2013
This is super easy for me to decide. The worst book I've read this year was You Are Not So Smart by David McRaney. A lot of people seemed to love the book, but I just couldn't stand it. I found it to be very annoying and condescending.

Favorite New Author
This one is exceptionally tough, I've read over 100 new-to-me authors, so I'm going to list six of my favorites (alphabetically) along with the first book I read by them.

Book that surprised you
The book that surprised me the most, because I actually loved it, was Perfectly Matched (The Blue Willow Brides #3) by Maggie Brendan. I had read the first two books in the series, the first was okay but the second was terrible, and I wasn't expecting much at all with this one. I was very pleasantly surprised by how much I loved reading Perfectly Matched.

Book that disappointed you
The most disappointing book I've read would have to be Afloat by Erin Healy. I had read the books she wrote with Ted Dekker and very much enjoyed them, so I was expecting to enjoy this book - I didn't. In fact, thinking back on it, I could almost say I hated it.
