My book choices in 2013

Here is what my year looked liked when it came to reading. If you take a closer look, you will notice Harry Potter appearing several times (it was a stressful year) and you will also notice that of my 100 books in a year goal, I basically came 2/3 to the finish line (luckily that’s not how I run). 😉

I keep thinking that the fact that I read every day if I can (and I usually can, as I schedule my time in such manner), I would be able to get two books read in a week (on average) but no. Well, a part was really my fault because I got hooked on Vampire Diaries and while watching all 4 seasons in the time allotted to reading, no books were added to my list.

Generally though, I’m very happy with what I’ve read in 2013 and I highlighted my favorites.

Who knows, maybe next year is the year I hit 100. 😉

    WOW, Ines, that is a lot of reading! I thought I read a lot – you have me beat. And we didn’t read any of the same books! You have inspired me to post my list on my home/craft/other blog – I think I only read 50 or so.

    You rock!

    Enjoyed reading your list of books for last year, Ines.

    I’ve started reading a few fantasty book lately, The Enchantress and Poison Study were good. Going to start reading Angelfall soon. I was thinking of Divergent but think it might be a bit dark for me. I loved The Hunger Games but found it stressful at times!

    Currently reading The Rosie Project about a guy with Asperger’s Syndrome who starts a project to find a wife. It’s early days but very sweet and funny so far.

      Tara, thank you for the suggestions! 🙂 Aside from Hunger Games, I only read Divergent from those you mentioned. I don’t want to sound mean, but it’s more like HG wannabe, I didn’t find it as gripping. But I only read the first book and I plan on writing about it. I’m still debating reading on, the reviews on Amazon didn’t sound promising…

        Thanks for the tip about Divergent, Ines. That’s kind of what I suspected so I appreciate it being confirmed by you. I tend to like the more magical stuff anyway.

        I’m saving Neil Gaiman’s Ocean at the End of the Lane to cheer me up through Jan. If you’ve never read Neverwhere, I highly recommend it.

          Thank you for the Gaiman recommendation – he’s been on my list of authors I should try for quite some time.
