It’s the end of the year and the last book round up of the year for me… December month was quite an eclectic reading month for me. From Gothic fantasy with Juliet Marillier – Heart’s Blood, end of a series with Cat grant Chronicle series – Triad, a set of addictive books by Stormy Glenn – Wolf Creek series and of course the fun-est book of the month for me was Tall Mean& Darkly – Llewellyn/Hecht, then a whole bunch of graphic novels – a good month.
Not only was December good reading fun, but the entire 2009. I set a challenge of 450 books at the start of the year as my reading goal and I have done that and then some.
There were of course some books that stood out for me but all in all I enjoyed most of the books that I read and I wouldn’t have missed reading even the questionable one. There were books I had hoped I would have liked to read before the end of the year – but guess what – although I didn’t get to them, reading never stops and tomorrow is yet another reading day….
I found some wonderful self published authors this year as well and I am looking for more wonderful finds in 2010 in that arena. Some genre seems to be going from strength to strength and some are just getting there foothold in the industry – I am looking forward to where stuff like Steampunk takes me in 2010….
What ever amount you read this year be it too little or too much I hope there are books you can look back on with fun and fond memories, laughter and a few tears chucked in for good measure.
Congrats on a great 2009 in reading…..
