Happy New Years to you all! Thanks again for following, especially to those who kept following as I transitioned from my old blog Karissa’s Reading Review to my new home at Hidden in Pages. Below you will find my wrap-up post for 2013.
This year I ended up reading 254 books, that’s one more book than last year. My goal was 250 books, which I hit just barely. So it was a great year for reading. You can go to the full list of books read here. I have also broken them down into category below by genre and age group.
I focused mostly on book reviews (5 per week) and blog hops this year, those are what seem to generate the most traffic. Because of time constraints I wasn’t able to do as many author interviews.
If there is anything you would like to see more of next year? Please comment and let me know!
Urban Fantasy/Paranormal: 83
Science Fiction: 9
Graphic Novel: 36
Historical Fiction: 5
General Fiction: 7
By Age Group:

Middle Grade: 30
