For the last three years, I kept a running list of the books I’ve read on RowdyKittens. About three months ago, I started to use Goodreads to keep track of the books I’ve read. However, I haven’t been updating my book list because it’s not an activity I enjoy. Instead, I’ve opted to make notes about the books I love in my journal. Then, I share my recommendations in my weekly happy links round-up.
Over the last few days, I’ve been culling through the books I read during 2013 and I wanted to share my favorite books with you. However, I didn’t want the list to be insanely long, so I only picked the very best reads to share with you.
I highly recommend these books. Be sure to pick up a copy at your library, a local bookstore, or from an online retailer.
