In no particular order, my favorite albums (subjectively, "the best albums") from 2013:

"AM" by Arctic Monkeys
"The Marshall Mathers LP 2" by Eminem
"Lightning Bolt" by Pearl Jam
"Magna Carta... Holy Grail" by Jay Z
"Afraid of Heights" by Wavves

"The Wildfire Season" by Andrew Pyper was GREAT. I don't even remember why I got it, since the description doesn't sound that enthralling and it doesn't sound like my usual fare, but I'm glad I read it. I haven't read any of his other works, but I plan on checking them out. His descriptions were so vivid, it truly painted a picture of things I had not formerly envisioned.

So, "The Goldfinch". 5/5 stars until the latter part of the book, when I felt it lost some cohesiveness and its sense of direction. Some of the stuff seemed needless, pointless. That said, it was still a great book, and one I'd highly recommend. And, no spoilers, but it's not exactly the "feel good' book of the year, although...

Another book I highly recommend: "Brilliance" by Marcus Sakey. Fantastic, fantastic book. The first book I've read in a long time where I absolutely did not want to put it down, and didn't want the book to ever end. (Thankfully, it is apparently the first in a planned series!)  Lots of books are described as page-turners, books you can't put down, etc., and this one -- for me -- truly was.

The ending was a slight letdown, but that is due, I believe, to it being the first in a series. It doesn't "end" so much as it leaves it open for the next book. So the ending was disappointing, but I'm willing to let that slide as long as he follows up with another book in the series.

Even taking that into account, I think I'd already include this book in my top 10. (Not for the month or year or decade, but ever.)  Do I think everyone will agree? Nope.
