2014 Year in [Book] Review

Posted January 4, 2015 by Zeee in Features | 0 Comments

I know I did the bookish survey by Jamie @ The Perpetual Page Turner but I wanted to make my own short Year in Review based on last years’ review.  I did pretty well this year because I read 119 books with 41 of those in audiobook format.  I have to say that listening to audiobooks really bumped up my reading stats.  However, I only reviewed 62 of the books and so I need to get more reviews in this year.  Historical romance is still my fave genre but I also see a rise in the YA category!
