Top Ten Tuesday: Magical Realism

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Today’s prompt is “All Time Favorite Books in X Genre (you pick the genre!).”

It’s no secret that I love magical realism. Last year I wrote about magical realism during Armchair BEA, and included my top three favorite authors in that genre: Haruki Murakami, Aimee Bender, and Sarah Addison Allen. Today, I’m going to limit myself to the top five magical realism titles I read and reviewed in 2013.
