The Best Books We Read in 2013

On Tuesday I had the first meeting of my new group, Booklovers Never Go To Bed Alone - Literary Adventures. We got together over coffee for a Book Chat and discussed what was the best book we had read in 2013. It was a great discussion and I came away with a great list of books to check into. Some of them I have read and agree they were among my favorite books, some of them I'd heard of but not had a chance to read and some are totally new to me and sound very intriguing. Knowing that most booklovers are always looking for good book recommendations, I thought I'd share this list with you.
