Below are my best picks from 2013 on Wattpad.
- Let her Sleep by GailWagner (27 Chapters)
Summary – Cordelia Jameson has met the boy of her dreams…too bad he’s only in her dreams! In modern New York, seventeen year old Cordy finds a talisman that controls the dream world, but no matter what choices she makes she will lose someone she loves.
I remember reading this in its first draft, when it was still called “Dream Walker Chronicles” and thinking about how original I found the plot and how connectable I found Cordelia. The book is now (as of 2014) published!
2. All’s Fair in Love and Seduction by Beverley Kendall (18 Chapters)
Summary – She hopes to gain his affections.
For Miss Elizabeth Smith, sharing her first kiss with the charming Lord Derek Crewsell is nothing short of a dream come true…that is, until she is spotted by one of the most influential gossips of the town. With scandal nipping at her heels, to avoid total social ruin, Elizabeth must present a fiance by the end of the season. But when the viscount proves reluctant, Elizabeth is forced to employ a seduction of a different sort…
He is determined to ruin her.
Viscount Derek Creswell believes Elizabeth set out to trap him into marriage. After all, her sister attempted the very same thing with his brother six years before. Now the delectable Miss Smith expects a betrothal and a ring, while Derek finds her ruination infinitely more appealing…
But as Derek sets out to seduce only her body, Elizabeth is intent on claiming his jaded heart.
I LOVE historical romances so this was always going to be a win for me. I found such depth in the characters and such a moving storyline. I wasn’t expecting to get all the feels from this book but I found it to be an addictive read, and while not unique, definitely a book worth a read.
3. A Russian Revolution by Giselle18 (20 Chapters)
Summary – This story is based on the information my Great Grandmother has given me throughout my life about life before, during the Russian Revolution and what it was like to leave behind her country to come to America. This is dedicated to my great Babooshka Annika. (Babooshka means Grandmother in Russian.) I hope you all enjoy it and learn from this book. Although it is fiction it still has it’s truth to it.
The Russian Revolution has always fascinated me. I always seek out fictional books on the subject and will even read a non-fiction book if it looks interesting enough. This story was intriguing to read and I learnt a fair amount from reading it.
4. Forsaken Deity by saturn137 (30 Chapters)
Summary – She waitresses at her local bar, pays her bills on time, has a secret crush on Detective Josh Cooper and let’s her friend Shae drag her to parties when she’d rather be curled up at home buried in the latest paranormal fantasy.
In one night though, her life becomes a paranormal fantasy when she is attacked by Titans and saved by a man claiming to be Hermes, Messenger of the Gods. Hermes tells her she is a reincarnated deity, with latent powers she must remember so she can return the recently escaped Cronos back to Tartarus.
Thea refuses to believe such nonsense but with the strange things happening around her, Thea begins to discover that fantasy is more closer to reality than she once thought…
Story Link –
I love anything to do with the Gods of old, whether they be the Greek Gods or the Egyptian Gods, so this book was right up my alley. You know when you read a book and it lingers on for days, weeks, months and even years? Yeah, well this book did exactly that for me. I was captured while reading it, addicted to the writing on the pages and have since read it numerous times and enjoyed every new read.
5. A Deal with the Daredevil by chocolatemuncher (33 Chapters)
Summary – Casey Stratford and Ryder Cavanaugh are not friends. They’re barely even acquaintances. But when Casey gets dumped and she’s resigned herself to do everything in her power to get her ex back, even becoming an overnight daredevil, there’s only one person who can help.
Ryder Cavanaugh is spontaneous, reckless and irresponsible; he’s everything she’s not, but wants to be. So they make a deal.
A deal that maybe, just maybe, has a chance of turning Casey into the town’s newest daredevil. Or maybe, it’ll just come back and bite her in the ass.
This book was light-hearted and amusing. It was stereotypical in the way that it was enemies to friends, friends to lovers and with the team up of the MC with the typical bad boy, however, I still managed to find unique moments and things that I liked. It’s a pretty easy going book and was a good book to read to take a break from more heavy-handing stuff.
6. Do you Know Indigo? by Bekah Eva (46 Chapters)
Summary – Christine Evans doesn’t remember why she played her hand in the suicide game, or why the boy with eyes of red urged her to.
Christine Evans couldn’t understand why, on the anniversary of that same attempted suicide, a boy with eyes of indigo appeared seemingly out of nowhere and why he looked so damn familiar.
Christine Evans, as surely all heroines are, is special and caught in a dance between two men with eyes of colour no eyes should have any business being.
What might be the price of the truth behind an attempted suicide and the cost of understanding the mystery around Red and Indigo? Christine Evans may just have to risk more than her soul to find out.
I remember when I first stumbled across this book and fell within the pages. I couldn’t believe how exciting and different this book was and wondered how it had gone unnoticed on the sight. This book is incredibly unique and made me inquisitive in finding out the answers. I latched onto Christine Evans as a character and was compelled to read about her story. Well worth a read in my opinion.
