Booking Through Thursday – Year in Review

It’s the last day of the year, and you know what that means … nostalgia and looking back.

What were your favorite books of the year? (Books that were new to you in 2009, if not necessarily published this year.)

It has been a year of many books. I have one more review to write and I am going to be putting it up tonight as I am making the book count for 2009 and 2010, I know a little odd but you will see when I make the review post why. It is hard to believe that it is already going to be 2010. A year has come and gone. I completed 94 books this year. This falls short of my 125 goal, but over all I am pleased. I have reviewed every book I have read and completed 6 other challenges. Since this was my first year of doing challenges I think that is a pretty good accomplishment.

I read a lot of new to me books this year; I did not do any re-reads at all. Some of the books had been in my TBR pile for over a year, but not all of them. Some of my favorites were My Sisters keeper, Shoot the Moon, Good Grief, Devil’s Bride, The Secret History of the Pink Carnation series…and well just a lot more. I really enjoyed most of my books this year. Some were horrible, but most were good.

My TBR pile has been reduced some, I have not taken in as many books as I have finished reading. My only issue is due to finances I have not been able to mail out as many as I want to. But I will be gathering everything that isn’t wish listed on PBS after new years and they will see their way up to the thrift store and cleared out to make room for 2010’s reads. My husband will be happy with that as I currently have several little piles of books around the house. Oppsy!

Happy New Year everyone!

  1. My Sister's Keeper is certainly a very good book but I also remember it being emotionally draining. I had to take a long break from Picoult after that.

  2. I have the same little piles stacked around the house too. 🙂 94 is a good number for books read. I read more than I thought I would but less than I wanted to but many were great reads so no complaints.
