Amazing--I cannot believe how fast this year has flown by. I am determined to get the Christmas decorations down--TODAY--but wanted to complete this post before 2014 came knocking on the door.

Overall, I've read some really great books this year. I've met my Goodreads Reading Challenge and my total is 213 for the year! 

As for the other Reading Challenges I participated in...well... they didn't go so well. LOL. Here's hoping I do better in 2014.

I thought I'd give you a list of my Top Ten Reads for 2013. On a side note, it was painful to have to limit these, as I hate to cut anyone out. But I was determined to keep it to only ten.
