Top 13 Books Read in 2013 & Wrap Up!

2013 has been probably my best reading year so far in the history of my 17 years of life.  There were so many amazing books that I read, series that I finished, and books that I shed a good amount of tears for.  Turned out that the tear jerkers ended up being my favorites?  Haha, classic.

Anyway, on goodreads for 2013, my goal was to read 65 books.  Did I complete it?  I sure did!  In fact, I finished my goal by reading a whopping 86 books.  The most amount of books I've read ever within a year.  I just feel so proud of myself for going over and above my goal.  I didn't think I could really do that.  The thing that I think gave me the motivation to read as many books as I did was all the awesome fangirling and book reading friends I've made this past year.  For once, I didn't feel that alone, & it was super encouraging.  
Now, without further ado, I present to you all... THE TOP 13 BOOKS I READ IN 2013!
