2013 Reads

my2013readingchallengeMy 2013 Read & Review Goal

100 books

I did not manage to meet my 2012 goals of reading and reviewing 100 books. I found that I read way too many beta reads or sekrit reads and then so many books that didn’t end up getting reviewed. But this year it’s going to change.

I will be reading 100 books and reviewing them. And this year I’m going to catch up on a bunch of books that I’ve wanted to read but didn’t because of too many other obligations.

This year I’m going to get back into reading in a way that I wasn’t in 2012.

So I’m keeping my goal at 100 books to read and review, but I’m hoping to read even more than 100. But we shall see.

    Hi. I’m Tinisha.
    I read most of your blogs and I like them and will I have a few books in mind that maybe you would like to read.
    Its is called Fifty shades of grey trilogy by E. L. James. The first book is Fifty shades of grey, the second book is Fifty shades darker and the last third book is Fifty shades freed. Its not the normal books that you would read but I am just giving it a suggestion.
    When I first read the first book it just kinda surprised me to where it was heading. But I thought it was a good book to read. If you would want more idea’s on reading some more book fell free to ask. I would make a blog about them and I have the idea’s but I am not so good on writing them down. Thanks.
