Last year I set a resolution to read 60 books. I’m not exactly sure why I decided that was a doable number, or why I thought reaching that number would make me feel more accomplished, so I’ve decided to not even try to set a goal this year outside of just reading and putting a dent in my TBR pile. As it turns out, I did not reach my strange goal last year, though I did come close. Overall, I read 56 books in 2013 and they are listed below mostly in the order I read them. If you’re interested in which books I considered my favorite, all of the titles are clickable to my GoodReads where I’ve rated and reviewed each.
