Below is a list of all the books I read and reviewed in 2013, a total of 35 reads - a little bit short of what I'd like to have read, and indeed what I did read last year. It has, however, been a very busy year for me and I did read a few books that I never quite got round to reviewing. Hopefully there's still something here to tickle your reading fancy - click on any of the items below to read my review.
