Yes well I know it's not unheard of for me to just vanish into the aether and then not reappear for 2 years but I think that just adds to my charm n'est pas?
So I return in the New Year with a plan to slowly reintegrate myself into a more active participatory role in the book community and this time I have Gifs! (gods all bless Tumblr).
Top 13 Reads of 2013
Since no one has any idea what I read last year (except those few whom I actually communicate with through other mediums) I thought I'd start with a list of my favourite reads of 2013. This list won't include any re-reads or multiple books by the same author. Also in no order of favouritism.
Angelfall by Susan Ee
Attachments by Rainbow Rowell
Crown of Midnight by Sarah J. Maas
Unravel Me - Tahereh Mafi
Clockwork Princess - Cassandra Clare
Etiquette and Espionage - Gail Carriger
Just One Day - Gayle Forman
This Song will Save your Life - Leila Sales
Siege and Storm - Leigh Bardugo
Untold - Sarah Rees Brennan
Battle Magic - Tamora Pierce
The 5th Wave - Rick Yancey
1Q84 - Haruki Murakami
Reading Goals for 2014
I kinda failed with some of my goals from last year so hopefully I can succeed with this year's.
1. Read at least 150 books
2. Read at least 1 non-fiction book a month
3. Read at least 1 classic book a month
4. Read more from my TBR pile than re-reads
5. Get back into the habit of filling my reading journal properly
6. Try to get back into book community (see already trying with this one!)
What goals are all you lovely folk setting for yourselves in 2014?
Hopefully y'all will see more from me soon - alas now I have to go be domestic, ironing calls!
