New Year

My Year in Reading + My 10 Most Favorite Reads in 2016

The Reading Year That Was Being the slacker that I was, I failed to put up a reading goal post when this year started. But even if I may not have been the best book blogger there is, I can’t just not break tradition by not putting up this yearly list. 2016 has been great reading-wise despite my blogger failings, and I had enjoyed not having a set reading goal except for a fixed number of books to read (which I have surpassed months before the year ended.)

2014 Year-End Report + 2015 Reading Goals

Happy 2011, Bookworld!

Happy Three Kings! Forgive me for this belated post. I offer no explanations, other than the holiday hang-over slash laziness. :D I want to start this post by saying that I have thoroughly enjoyed the previous year, bookwise and otherwise. 2010 has proven to be fruitful in my bookish world: I got a handful of books as gifts from generous friends and relatives.
