Read in 2011 List

I had a very slow start this year; between my college courses (at the time I was in the last semester of getting my Associates Degree) and then the health problems I had around the same time, I had very little time for reading, and absolutely no time for blogging. In fact, as you all know, up until September, I took a break from blogging.

But now I am back at it again, slowly working through all the old reviews I need post, reading all the books I was behind on reviewing, etc. I think I'll be caught up by....oh, 2013! LOL.

Usually I have no problem hitting close to 200 or more books in a year, but obviously this year I had to cut my goal back a bit. At first it was 100, which I hit a few months back, and then I moved it up to 150. But even that goal was just beyond my reach...

I hope to read many more books in 2012 (before the world ends, you know! *wink*). I also plan on posting more reviews, not just for those that are sent to me for reviewing but also more of the books I buy on my own.

Oh, and I already have a few author guest posts and interviews set up (as part of a blog tour) for Feb. and March---most will have giveaways involved as well as my review on their newest release, so please make a note to stop by (Feb. 10, Feb. 23, March 26th, to name a few dates...).


I hope everyone has a wonderful New Year's--be safe, have fun, and don't do anything too crazy! :D



Enjoy!


Until Next Time,
