Books Read in 2013

Happy Holidays everyone! I cannot believe that 2013 is already over. This year has gone so so fast. In the beginning of the year I got to read so much, but then I had many months where I almost didn't read anything at all. I got a new apartment above my mom, which I love, and I got a kitten in April. She's still killing me. But she's beyond adorable as well. I had a very stressful year with my three diseases, but I think I might be starting getting better. I hope. Anyway. I didn't get to read as much as I wanted to. But I still read 118 books this year. And that is a lot of stories up in my head. Today I'm sharing a list of the books that I read and re-read; just in case you were curious :) Not adding the date of which I read the books, but I guess you can see that if you click on my review link. Just adding the books I read in the 12 months. You can also check out my Goodreads, if you are curious about the books I'm going to read :)

Also wanted to share a bit about my blogging this year as well. I wrote 313 blog posts and I'm pretty happy about that. I passed 188,000 blog views, which makes me beyond happy. <3 And I have passed 6000 blog comments as well. You guys are the best! Thank you so so much. I have enjoyed this year a lot, despite not feeling the best. I have gotten to read a lot of amazing books. I have gotten to talk to a lot of amazing people online; people, authors, publishers. You are all amazing. Just wanted to thank you all for making 2013 such an amazing year :) Can't wait to start 2014 tomorrow. Excited for everything :)
