What are your favourite books of 2013?


  1. My favourites were Wild, Lean In, Burial Rites, Quiverfull, Crazy Rich Asians (which I read after you recommended it!) and Hyperbole and a Half. Happy New Year, dear friend!

    1. Happy New Year Claire! I'm going to take up your recommendations above! I'm glad you liked Crazy Rich Asians.

  2. You got through several books that I want to tackle next year. I usually avoid the books that are generating tons of discussion but maybe next year I'll dive into a few hot new releases.

    Happy New Year!

  3. I think i need to get the Stats Canada book. I've heard a lot about it and it sounds fun.
