My Reading List from 2013

As 2013 comes to a close, I thought I'd take a moment to record the list of books I read, so here it is. There were blocks of time that I forgot to record what I was reading, so I'm pretty sure there should be a few more books on here, but I just don't remember them. And yes, I know it is a fuck-ton of books. But it's not a record number of books for me. I've read more in a year - I think 223 is my record.

There were some really amazing books in this list and some real shit storms of garbage. And it wasn't all urban fantasy. This year was a mix of urban fantasy, contemporary romance and mystery - both adult and young adult. I found some authors who I'll follow forever.

I'm sorry I've fallen off the blogging grid (not that I was all that on it) but life has been challenging with my soon-to-be 19 year old aspie son at home. Blogging is a luxury I cannot afford. But I do tweet under UnseelieMe if you want to look for me there. 

If you're still following me (and there were only 7 of you, so...), I hope you had wonderful holidays. And I hope your New Year brings you happiness.
