book list 2013

The annual list of new books read in 2013! My New Year's Eve celebrations are sooner than anticipated, so this post is a bit curtailed- but here they are! I read 88 books in 2013, a personal best, which I am putting down to a long commute, and maybe the number of graphic novels. There are some good books in here (and some not-so-good) which hopefully I will get to post about another day!
