Best of 2013 Fiction

Cinnamon and Gunpowder: A Novel - Eli Brown The Seduction of Water - Carol Goodman The Art of Fielding: A Novel - Chad Harbach A Discovery of Witches  - Deborah Harkness The Season of Second Chances: A Novel - Diane Meier Night Film - Marisha Pessl The Engagements - J. Courtney Sullivan Fingersmith - Sarah Waters

This best-of lists continue with regular fiction!  This list doesn't include subgenres like crime and speculative fiction, only novels that would be in the general fiction section (though sometimes the separation feels arbitrary).  I read some amazing fiction this year, and my favorites covered a wide range, from a novel about baseball to one about a female pirate in the nineteenth century.  A great haul!
