AOL Recommends: Help Us Pick the Best Books of 2013


It's that time of year when we eat too much pumpkin pie, gather around a fire with friends and family and reminisce about the best (and worst) events of the past year. This year, we're compiling our favorite book releases and we want your help! For the next few weeks we will be gathering votes to figure out which books from 2013 were the best.

Check out the first five choices below and vote for your favorite on the right of the page! If your favorite 2013 release isn't here, let us know in the comments.

Happy voting!


And the Mountains Echoed by Khaled Hosseini


Dr Sleep by Stephen King

Reagan Arthur Books

Life After Life by Kate Atkinson


Lean In: Women, Work, and the Will to Lead by Sheryl Sandberg


The Good Lord Bird by James McBride

If you don't see your favorite book here, don't fret! We will hold the next round of voting next week.
