At about the same time last year, I started a new feature in this blog called Book Kaleidoscope 2012. This feature was my way of wrapping up and rewinding my reading for the whole year, at the end of it. For fun, I have invited my followers to do the same. Unexpectedly, many bloggers were excited to participate and submit their posts. So this year, I decided to host the Book Kaleidoscope 2013. This time I extend it to five criteria (five top five!) and each post will have their own linkys; each linky will be opened until January 31st, 2014. I will post according to my scheduled date, but you can choose your own most convenient time to post it, as long as it’s not later than January 31st.
Day 1 - Top Five Book Boy/Girl Friends
From all the books you have read throughout the year, rank five male characters (if you are female) or five female characters (if you are male) you love the most. Tell us the reason, and it would be great if you use images to describe them (if the book has been made into movie, you can share photo(s) of the best actors/actresses to perform them).

Day 2 – Top Five Most Memorable Quotes
Do you have any quotes that touched you deeply or reminded you of something special? Pick five that are most memorable to you, rank them, and let us know why they’re special to you.

Day 3 – Top Five Best Book Covers
Rank five covers of books you have read in 2013. Pick the edition that you really read, but if you read ebook, at least pick the one that you used for your post. Tell us why you think them gorgeous.

Day 4 – Top Five of Your Own Criteria
Last year, several bloggers initiatively created their own criteria for the kaleidoscope (besides the existing three I created then). So, this year, I decided to dedicate day 4 as a freebie day. Pick your own criteria (besides the existing four)—any aspects from books; rank five of your most favorites, and tell us why you choose them. If you don’t have any (better) idea, you are welcomed to join mine: Top Five Underappreciated Secondary Characters.

Day 5 – Top Five Most Favorite Books
No explanation needed for this criteria, of course…; just rank and let us know books you find most awesome, and you have enjoyed the most! (and why…).
