Best books of 2013

I have read several books this year, and I have to admit, I have found a book which I truly love. Though many would not like it, as it is a graphic novel, I find that this book is marvelous. First released in comic form in 1986 in comic form, this book has since been released ┬áin movie form and has spawned several prequel stories. I am, of course, referring to the extremely influential masterpiece by Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons, Watchmen. Despite the fact that it is rather old, it outclasses anything I have read this year. It’s blend of action and mystery, with significant amounts of symbolism.

Next year, I intend on re-reading Terry Pratchett and Stephen Baxter’s novel, “The Long Earth” and begin reading its sequel, “The Long War”. I have truly enjoyed Terry Pratchett’s Diskworld series, and I am looking forward to this new series.
