2013 Wrap Up

Hey guys, its that time already? How quick has this year gone? It's crazy. Any how here is my end of year wrap up. I hope you all have a wonderful 2014 ahead of you. I'll try and keep active even with university. I'm holding off an update on that because I still haven't gotten my results back yet and I think that'll be a crucial part of the post. Any way, on to books now.
Books Read:
This year I aimed to read 60 books, in total I read 68 and almost finished 69 but gave up to make this post instead oops, I also had the hope I'd write more reviews too (44 of these are reviews)! I think I somewhat managed that but still need to improve in some cases. If you click the images it'll take you to the review, if no review is available it'll take you to the Goodreads page, also apologies for the ones without covers.

Resolutions of 2013:
1. Keep scheduling - don't let myself fall behind again
Okay there were times when this didn't plan out but that was due to schooling and not wanting to let my foul mood effect my blog so I'm going to say I passed this one!

2. Buy less books
Um yes I actually did this! I bought so many books in 2012 it was unreal but this year I only really splashed out after Christmas.

3. Read more of your to be read pile
Welp, of all the 68 books I read, only 18 were from my to be read pile so next year I hope to read more off it.
4. Blog hop more - I'm kind of super lazy when it comes to this and I rarely read others reviews.
Yes, I've improved this too, at certain times any way. I know there have been times when I'm still bad with this. I've started reading more reviews too but still struggle to comment on them, so I need to improve that still.
5. Clean up your following list - this is my reason for lazy blog hopping, I'm following so many people I don't know where to start.
I haven't completed this but I have been doing it thanks to bloglovin, its a large task.
6. Use my Twitter and Facebook accounts more - ties in nicely with blog hopping, I just need to be more sociable.
I tried, and failed at this. Twitter I've used more definitely but not throughout the whole year, Facebook I've probably only used three times.
