Lets dish! Here are our personal favorites from 2012… what are yours?

2012 was an excellent year for paranormal romance and we enjoyed being able to celebrate many of our favorite books and authors here with all of you.  As a farewell to 2012, some of the GT reviewers wanted to pass on their well-wishes for 2013 and reminisce over their favorite stories of the year (psst – some of these weren’t originally released in 2012 but if we read them for the first time in 2012, that counts! =D)
