Books Read in 2013

In the beginning of 2013 I challenged myself to read 108 books (one more than the year before). In November I realized I wouldn't make that goal and set the goal to 100 instead. I didn't make that goal either, but I'm still very happy with all the titles I chose to read last year. In the end I read 93 books. 
I reviewed 70 books of the 93 I read (with one re-read). My resolution for 2014 will be to write the missing reviews and review every old Netgalley title I read in the past years, leave more comments on my favourite blogs, discover many new authors and read at leat ten debut novels.

  2. 70 reviews??? WOW! You are now my role model when it comes to writing reviews :D I don't want to review every book I read but there were lots of books in 2013 which I wanted to review and then didn't.

  3. So many awesome books, some here I really want to read! What a great reading year x
