  2. 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. :( I KNOW! I need to go to the post office ASAP.

      Lili - YoS is a very wonderful book!

  3. ^ 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!

  4. I was going to just leave a link to OUR lists, but I will refrain. :D :D :D

    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!

    1. LOL Wendy! DO you know I was still subscribed to your old blog feed? I just fixed that shit. UGH. So glad you loved Horde too. :D

    2. 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!

  5. 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!

  6. 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.

    1. Pivot Point shocked me - it was so much better than I expected.

      Delete
  8. 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!

    1. I think you should at least try it. Regardless of whether you love it or not, it's definitely a book worth discussing with friends.

      Delete
  9. 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!

    1. Oh, did you now? ;) And I agree about Scarlet. I favored it much more than Cinder. I hope you had a lovely holiday, Ellis!

      Delete
    2. World After was SO worth the wait!

      Delete
  10. Pivot Point is on mine. Actually I just bought Where The Stars Still Shine with my birthday money. I really need to read The Lunar Chronicles and Susan Ee's series.

    Here's my list: http://adventuresinreading16.blogspot.com/2013/12/top-ten-books-i-read-in-2013.html

    2. Pivot Point was a surprise for me. I knew it was going to be good, but I had no idea that I would fall in love with it.

      Delete
  11. 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!

    1. You too! And yes, you must read it!

    2. World After was SO worth it!

  12. Yay I'm glad to see Pivot Point made the list because I loved that book and can't wait for the second one.
    Happy New Year!

    1. Thank you, Alexa! Pivot Point was a solid top ten for the year! Loved it!

  13. 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 :)

  14. 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.

    1. It is all good! I'm so far behind as well. I feel horrible that my reading has fallen to the wayside.

  15. 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!
