2013: A Year in Review

Untitled

 

2013 has been a pretty special year to me in bookish terms. It was in September that I finally decided to write my own book blog and I can’t seem to stop expressing how awesome this experience has been for me. But even though I only started blogging in the last quarter of the year, the avid reader in me had been cataloging my books I’ve read since day 1 of 2013. This post is my year-in-review of the awesomeness that is this year.
