2013 Year-End Book Roundup

2013 books

Happy New Year!!

As much as I am excited to start with my 2014 reading list, I’d like to share a recap of my year with the books. I know I’m not much of a fast reader unlike others who can go up to a hundred books in a year but I am happy to have finished my goal of 30 books. I even read more than what I set! I got to finish 36 books before the year ended – yay!

And since I’m rounding up all the books that I have read for 2013, might as well state the best and worst reads I came across with.
