The Washington Post’s Notable Fiction of 2013

It’s that time of year, dear readers! Everyone seems to be rolling out their top books of 2013 lists these days. Last week I gave you the New York Times’ 100 notable books of 2013, and yesterday I posted the Washington Post’s top 10 fiction and nonfiction books of the year. But who is satisfied with just 10 books in a list, only 5 of which are fiction titles at that? Not me, that’s for sure! So, as promised, here is the Washington Post’s list of the 50 most notable fiction titles of 2013!

Note: The Washington Post released a list of the 50 most notable nonfiction titles as well, which interested readers can find here. Enjoy!
