Gay Romance Challenge: 2013 Result

Here we are back in December with my very personal challenge for 2014. I though to post the 2013 Gay Romance Challenge before the holiday, so that if you want to use it for your Christmas shopping, you are in time in doing so! BIG CONGRATS to Kindle Alexander for having 3 books in the first 10 positions!

This is the third year I'm doing the Challenge, and on the contrary of 2011 (when I complete all my challenge: http://www.elisarolle.com/ramblings/gay_romance_2011.html), for the 2012 books I still have 20 of them to read (www.elisarolle.com/ramblings/gay_romance_2012.html) BUT I will read them, trust me, I'm like a diesel, starting low but then gaining speed :-). This list (2013) and the previous (2011 and 2012) are an yearly average of the monthly bestsellers list in Gay Fiction as per this Amazon link: Bestsellers in Gay Fiction. At today I read only 18 out of 100 books, so this year challenge is REALLY challenging.

These are the 2013 results, and to determine the 100 books I simply considered all books that appeared at least once in the monthly Bestsellers list and gave them a rate equal to their position; if a book appeared more than once they received a bonus point for each time they made the list and their position is the average position plus the bonus. So this is the final list (in bold the books I read with link to the review):
