Top 5 Books of 2013

Happy New Year, y'all!  I hope you had a great holiday!  In case you were wondering, no, I'm not dead, just a terrible blogger.  TERRIBLE.  I'll be honest: I haven't been particularly motivated to blog lately and as my pile of books to review grew ever higher, I became even more apathetic.  The month-long slog called The Name of the Rose didn't help matters either.  To be totally honest, I'm not really sure how much commitment I want to give blogging moving forward.  The past few months have been the first time I've ever had a full-time job since I started the blog, and between work and all of my other hobbies (like actually reading), it's been hard to find time and motivation to blog.  Going forward, I might stick more to mini-reviews and worry less about writing a certain number of posts per week.  So that's where I am.  Thank you ahead of time to anybody who still checks by.

In the meantime, books!  It's the beginning of a new year, so I figured I'd join the bandwagon and put up a list of my favorite books that I read in 2013 (not counting rereads), based on which ones I gave 5 stars to on Goodreads.
