2013 Hall o’ Faves

Edit 01-06-14:  Cannot. Believe. I left out the Sherlock Holmes stories (Vol. 2 of the Barnes & Noble ed.; I read Vol. 1 in 2012). Cannot. Believe it. (Shut up, Naruto.)

Edit:  Oops! Missed one. Sorry ’bout that, October Daye ^_^;

……………………

I feel like this was a less prolific year for me, in terms of reading, so there are fewer titles for this year’s list.  Hopefully I’ll pull out of this slump soon (and finally finish that darn challenge — there are new books I really want to read, but my path is blocked by the 30-odd books stacked at the foot of my bookcase).  This will probably require a semi-cold-turkey stop in internet use …which may be just as well for January, as it’ll help me avoid even accidental Sherlock spoilers from those lucky UK folks who get season 3 three weeks before me).

Anyhoo, even in this desert year, I did find some sparkly, pretty gems.  As always, click on the cover for my review (unless there isn’t one, in which case don’t 🙂 ).

P.S.  I decided to include Wonderful Alexander even though I’m still not sure whether or not I’d already read it back in 7th grade.  I figure the “might not have” side is a strong enough excuse to include it here.

On a totally unrelated note, someone wanna get me this shirt?  Anyone?  ‘Cause this shirt is kind of awesome.
