Top Ten Tuesday – Top Books I Read in 2013

What better time to start a blog than on the last day of the year? Especially when the last day just so happens to be on a Tuesday, which just so happens to be the day of Top Ten Tuesday posts? Even more so when the topic is reviewing your top 10 books of 2013? The following are in no particular order. I hope you’ve read at least a few of them, because they are all wonderful. If you have, please comment and tell me what you thought!   (Click on image above to redirect to The Broke and the Bookish‘s Top Ten Tuesday) {{UPDATE: So, if we’re splitting hairs, this did get posted on the 2nd of the year, not the last day of the year. But again, if we’re splitting hairs, I started it on the last day of the year … it just took me 2 days working around my work schedule to figure out how to align the pictures correctly!! At least we’ve gotten that part out of the way though. 😉  Absolutely stunning period drama. Any book that can take you from 1914 to 1930 in less than 500 pages and  finish all of the story lines […]

Here Goes …

Reading is everything to me.  If I don’t actively have a book that I am reading, I get fidgety and upset. When I finish a book, I carry 2-3 with me for the next two days until I am sure I’ve chosen the right next book. I desperately (always) need more bookshelves. I have a thing for Jane Eyre. I own 9 different editions, have a mug, tote bag, and a scarf (*ahem* see below). Penguin Putnam is my favorite publisher, I would love to work for them some day. For now, I love working at a bookstore. My favorite day of the week is new release Tuesday.   So this is me! I’ve been using Goodreads & Twitter for about two years, and I love the community that I’ve found within. This will hopefully help me extend that community. It might take a few weeks (update: months??) to get going, but I’m really hoping it will come to something!
