Books I Reviewed in 2013

(In late 2013 I joined a few touring companies and began to be introduced to wonderful authors that I even didn't know existed.A lot of books that I remember fondly are either from Goodreads Firstreads program or from various book tours. I want to thank the book touring companies for giving me a chance and for sharing a lot of wonderful authors and literature that I didn't know existed. Fun fact: This is the year I published the most posts, capping out at 326, a record I hasn't repeated up to the present (2016))
