2013 Year in Review
Just as I said for 2012's review post, I'm writing this here in the future (May 2014, to be exact). The reasons are personal and (unsurprisingly) related to the large drop in the number of books I read in 2013, possibly my lowest total ever since I first learned to discern letters and words in the first place. I'm happy to note, however, that when I did read in 2013, I chose good books, including two editions of a perennial favorite, The Best American Mystery Stories, and the Newsflesh trilogy, which offered a refreshing take on the zombie trope and some interesting future projections about technology and culture. I took on my first Stephen King novel, 11/22/63 and was not disappointed- I look forward to revisiting it. Sometimes, I guess, quality matters over quantity, and I can't let myself get caught up in the writing to the detriment of the reading. This is a scattered post, perhaps, but I promise that more and better things (and, of course, more reviews) are coming.
