My 2014 Read & Review Goal
100 Books

While I read over 100 books in 2013 I didn’t even get close to that with my reviews. I had really hoped to meet both goals last year but that didn’t happen.

I did get back to reading, as I’d hoped to do, which was a plus. But writing out my thoughts in the form of a review was more than I could handle.

In 2014 I hope to turn that around. Even if it means I have to totally revamp my review style. Because, as I’ve said year after year, the point of being a book blogger (for me) is to be able to share my thoughts about the books I read. And not just read them and love them in secret.

So, here are…
