2014 Review Pile Reading Challenge: Wrap Up!

The 2014 Review Pile Reading Challenge was hosted by Rachel @ Fiktshun & Reanna @ Phantasmic Reads.
The goal of this challenge was to read & review books in the past year that we've received for review.

I loved participating in this challenge, because it kept me keep up with my review pile. Not always, there were still some review books that I read, but didn't gotten around to reviewing them :( but it happens, especially with my often reading, blogging & reviewing slumps I had in 2014. But, still, when I was in the mood, I did great, so overall, it wasn't a bad year.

My goal was to read & review 11-20 books, but I ended up with 85. Yes, I totally rocked it. Around 70-80% from these books are full-length novels, the rest are a mix of shorter reads, like novellas, illustrated childrens books & graphic novels. This year I read a lot more books from my review pile than my tbr pile. So, this year, I'm planning to do the opposite.
