  1. I’m desperate to read THE YEAR OF SHADOWS! I heard it’s absolutely awesome. As is WORLD AFTER, so I gotta get on those!

    SCARLET was so amazing <3 CRESS was even better 😉 I enjoyed WHERE THE STARS STILL SHINE, but it didn’t impress me as much as I was hoping. D: Oh well. Will definitely be checking out some of your other picks!

  2. ^ Hmmmm.

    Scarlet also made it to my favorite list. I LOVE the characters 🙂 and the plot only gets better and better with every new book. I’m very interested in that series from Aguire. Pivot point, the year of shadows and Angelfall are on my wish list for next year. Everyone seems to love those books. Nice picks!

  3. I was going to just leave a link to OUR lists, but I will refrain. 😀 😀 😀

    Great picks, ladies! I have crossovers on both your lists, MIDWINTERBLOOD was a top 5 book for me as well (so so so so good), and I also very much liked HORDE and WORLD AFTER. I keep meaning to read Kelley York, too, so many people rave about her books.

    Happy 2014 to you both!

    • After reading Kara’s comment, I forgot that I, too, seemed to be subbed to the old site. I wondered what happened to your updates!

      Midwinterblood is GREAT! I am so happy that I took your rec and picked it up!

  4. Such a wonderful list of books. It is so hard to choose the best of the best at times, especially with all the fantastic books that came out in 2013. Happy New Years Lady Bugs!

  5. Our lists are different, but there are three books on your list that I’m dying to read and just didn’t have time (and I may do a top ten post about them!): Midwinterblood, Scarlett and Night Film.

  6. I am SO curious about Night Film – I may have to pick it up soon. I have heard such widely varying things about it, I am dying to see whether I’ll end up loving it or not!

  7. Hahaha, I knew Night Film was going to make it! Scarlet was amazing. Cinder was good, but the sequel is what really sold me on the series. World After was. so. good. Again, Angelfall was solid but World After officially put this series on my watchlist. Oooh, Where the Stars Still Shine and Pivot Point. I’m very excited to read both, so I love that almost everyone I trust loves these. Happy New Year!

  8. Ooh man I so have to read Night Film that’s so up my alley and I know I’d love it! I also loved Scarlett and The Year of Shadows was super cute! I still have to read World After, too! Happy New Year, ladies!

  9. I haven’t read a single book from either of your lists, how strange is that? Almost all are on my TBR shelf, though. I even own some of them.

    I hope 2014 has started out fantastic, ladies, and that it will be a fabulous year, filled with love and laughter, joy and happiness, good health, great friendships, and awesome books 🙂

  10. NIGHT FILM. YESSSS. Still need to get around to reading Cinder, but I’m hoping that happens this year. Same for Midwinterblood. And The Year of Shadows. And Pivot Point. I’ve clearly fallen behind.

  11. Eeeep, I apologize in advance for my late comment here ladies; I’ve had this bookmarked pretty much since it went up but man I have been having one hell of a time catching up from the holidays *groan* Anyways, YES Scarlet was also among my very favorite reads of 2013!! As for the rest well the Razorland Trilogy, The Year of Shadows and Penryn & the End of Days books are ALL on my TBR shelf for 2014! Here’s to a wonderful 2014 for you ladies at the blog and Kara it was great meeting you in 2013 😀
