2013 Top 25

I didn’t start this blog until the middle of this year but luckily I have been tracking the books I read on Goodreads.  Here are my Top 25 books of 2013.  How do I determine the Top25? Well in this case it was easy…all the books I gave 5 stars to. The books below are…

December Book Reviews

  December started with my favorite author and other mysteries and ended with beach reads because I was traveling for the holidays.  Over the year I have often mentioned if a book was a good “beach read”.  For me a beach read is a fun, fast read that makes me smile and occasionally even laugh….
