Best of 2013 Giveaway Hop! (12/10 - 12/18) INT



Compared to last year I've only read about half of the same amount of 4 1/2 & 5 star reads. I'm hoping next year will be better! 

I've broken my favorites down into three separate categories. Not all of the books listed were published in 2013, but they were all read this year. Winner will have their choice of any two. Thanks for stopping by & good luck! ~ Cat

THAT would be one long list, so I will spare you that suffering and tell you my 2 most recent favorites, both series. Not all published in 2013, but all were read this year. The first series, and an all time favorite series (you actually listed the final book as one of your faves), is The Immortal Empire series by Kate Locke. I am head over heels for this series, and while I loved the conclusion, I am so sad to say bye. :( The second series is The Graveyard Queen series by Amanda Stevens. I don't think any were published this year, but I read them all this month so it counts! What a fantastic series. And I happily found out yesterday that there are 3 more books to come! Thank you so much for the giveaway, and thank you for reading my rambling comment...
