2011 Wrap-Up

Well, 2011 is over. I can't even believe it! Honestly, I don't think that this year happened. Everytime I looked at the calendar, another month had passed. I started my blog back in February, and I'm shocked at how it has grown in that time. When I started it, I thought that no one would care or read my blog. Now, I have well over 100 followers (139 to be exact), have read books that I never thought I would read, and met so many wonderful people. I'm excited to see what the 2012 brings, not only in terms of my blog, but in my professional and personal life as well. So, first up, my reading stats for 2011:

Books Read: 95 (might hit 97 before the year is over)
Reviews Done: 93 (I need to play catch up!)
Pages Read: 32,624 pages (WOW!)

Now, my favorite books for 2011:

Seriously, one of the funniest things I have ever read. I recommend this book to anyone and everyone, because I can't imagine anyone not loving this book.

Such a decadent and wonderful book to get lost in. I typically stay away from the fantasy genre, but this book was so much more than just a journey into a different world.

Probably the best book I have ever read. If you haven't read this book, then you need to. 

Now, I do have some blogging resolutions for 2012 (here's hoping I can stick to them!):

~ Do my reviews in a more timely manner (I sometimes wait weeks to write a review)

~ Get better at commenting back (I always want to, but since I normally just read ths email notifications of what was written, I always forget to go back and respond to people)

~ Focus on writing better reviews (I think I do a pretty good job most of the time, but I always feel like there is room for improvement!)

So, that's 2011 in a nutshell! How was your year?

  1. I would like to read The Night Circus in 2012, it's had so much positive buzz. I read Unbroken with my book group this year and found myself feeling a bit skeptical in places but most of the others loved it.
