2014 End of Year Book Survey

2014-end-of-year-book-survey-1024x984

Yay so it’s officially 2015! While it’s technically now the beginning of the year, I am still going to complete this survey for 2014. Unfortunately, December is always a crazy month so I never get much reading done and I didn’t have much time for blogging as well. Now that it’s a new month and year I will be updating often again. I have a stack of books and a 2015 TBR list so this year is sure to be a good one! 🙂 All of my stats are based off of my Goodreads account so there are probably some books not accounted for. Thanks to The Perpetual Page Turner for creating this survey and you can click on the blog name to go to her page and get the survey for yourself.
