I do fear that this new year did not start well at all, I was about to give up on Once Bitten, Twice Shy by Jennifer Rardin yesterday with I did not want to end with a DNF. But I was very close, so I kept on reading, which turned to skimming. And I skimmed the rest.
For some reason this book did not work for me on any level. I did not connect to the characters, I did not like the characters, I did not care for the story. I honestly did not like anything at all about this book. I fear it turned out to be the biggest UF disappointment so far.
Anyway, I forgot all about my stats from 2011:
STATS for 2011
245 books read, 244 of those were fiction and one was non-fiction.
I also read 6 graphic novels/picture books
I listened to one audio picture book.
And I read 23 short stories. So a lot of those.
And together all that makes, oh something since I do not count short stories since some of them have been 9 pages short.
It was a great year, but I since was unemployed for the most of it I had to read, which I loved.
So thank you all for having me over 🙂
And for something more: Books I look forward to in 2012
(oh and I am so bad at putting pics together, sheesh, bad!) And there are also lots more, some sadly without covers so far. But these are some of the books that are a must have
