Book Blogger New Year's Challenge of 2014 - What Books of 2013 Are You Sad You Missed?
What Books of 2013 Are You Sad You Missed?
I really have no idea. As I have mentioned before, I'm just not the type of book blogger who looks forward to new releases. Most of the time, I don't even know what new releases are due out in a given year, and frequently don't notice when something has been published. Mostly because I'm usually reading something that was published thirty or forty years ago, and have a volume of books in my to-be-read pile that makes the amount of gold in Smaug's hoard look tiny by comparison. For example, I think Neil Gaiman published a book in 2013, and if so, I'd like to read it. But on the other hand, I have several Gaiman books in my backlog that I haven't read yet, so I probably would read those first anyway.
Just to be pedantic, I have to question whether one can actually "miss" a book to begin with. For the most part, all of the books that were published in 2013 are still available for me to read, even if I didn't read them in that calendar year. Just like all the books that I have that were published in 1965 are available for me to read whenever I get around to them. I didn't so much "miss" any of the books of 2103, as I simply haven't had the time to enjoy them yet.
