2013 in Review: Too Read Part 1

December 30, 2013

2013 has been a phenomenal reading year! I have read the most that I have ever have in this year. I have read a total of 112 books, which equaled to 42,313  pages. My goal for 2013 was only 55, which I then upped to 75! I've been so happy with most of the books I've read this year. So, here are the books that have been marked as Too Read! These are the books that have been given 4 and 5 out of 5 on my ratings and they have been broken down into the months that they have been read.

Also you will see with 2013 how the blog has morphed into what it is today. 2013 was a year of learning and creativity with the blog and it is another achievement for the year which I'm trilled with!

There were so many new books this year, it's been fantastic! I needed to break the year up into two parts. There is a lot more to come tomorrow with part 2 as we wrap up the year.


  1. Hi Kate! New follower :) This is a great list of books. I didn't get all that much reading done in 2013, but I hope to read more books in the coming year. I love the River of Time books and I'm reading some of Melanie Dickerson's now. Others are on my TBR list. Thanks for sharing!


  2. Hi Jillian! Thanks for the follow. The River of Time series is fantastic! Can't wait for Deluge. :-) I've really enjoyed Melanie Dickerson's books. Can't wait for more. Happy New Year!


Thanks for stopping by. Leave a word, leave a line, I would love to hear what you have to say.
