Books Read in 2013 {For my Record}

I read upwards of 60 books this year, which is quite impressive since I also wrote a book (and started a few more drafts). Mostly I focused on books that were written for my particular genre and audience that I wrote for (for research like character development and pacing ideas). A lot of people might say, "Wow, you have a lot of time on your hands..." but head over to the Becoming Lovely blog for a great post on priorities.

Here is my list. I'm not sure if it is complete. Sometimes I am lazy and forget to add a book or five through the year. You can check out my goodreads for a more complete list (complete with impressions and reviews for the books as well).
