It's been awhile...

Life needs to stop getting in the way of my reading. 2013 was a horrible year for me, hence falling off the face of the Earth. So far 2014 is only slightly better. Mostly I'm frustrated that I still can't concentrate the way I used to. It's almost August and I've read a whopping 30 books this year. My goal is at least 100, but that seems so very far away.

The only good thing I can say is that it's summer so I have an excuse for the fact that I've been reading the Riley Jenson Guardian novels. I've rolled my eyes while reading them, but still I read them.

Below is my list of books so far this year (all links lead to Shelfari):
