Our Top 2013 Reads and Our Can't Wait for 2014 List!

Since it's the last day of 2013, we thought we'd share some our favorite books that released this year. At first is sounded like a really easy task, but we quickly realized that we LOVED so many books it was next to impossible to come up with a Top 5 or 10 list. But we were determined and so we came up with a list that while leaves out many of our faves, it narrows down some of the books that we just can't seem to forget. After going through the large number of titles we read this year, we discovered that the YA titles doubled the NA/Adult so we opted for a Top 10 for YA and a Top 5 for NA/Adult. So check out our top picks for 2013 and compare them to your own. Did any of these make your list?
