Everything I Read in 2013

It was a damn good year for reading. Although I didn’t exactly indulge in the greatest variety of books, one thing I did this year was experience certain authors in depth. This can be seen with Lois McMaster Bujold (I read five books of her’s), Marie Brennan (three books, one novella), Brandon Sanderson (three books, one novella), Mary Robinette Kowal (three books), and John Scalzi (three books). I also read more comics then I’ve ever read in a single year before (which my bank account surely feels). If you’re curious to see what I’ve read, the list can be found below. I have bolded the works that struck me the most, and am open to discussing anything listed here in more depth.

    • Quite a few actually! Thirty-Six of the full length books and two of the novellas. I have a 45-minute commute. It seems a crime not to take advantage of that potential reading time.
