19 books this month! A big improvement on November! I had planned to catch up on my massive reading pile, but most of my reads were fairly new additions to the stack! Oops…
Only 12 blog posts this month though. I’ve been keeping up to date with Top Ten Tuesdays, but haven’t been organised enough to do all the reviews I have wanted to! The most popular posts included The Life and Death of Sophie Stark and Illuminae, two of my favourite books from recent months. I also added my second one-star review in Thicker than Water – that is time I won’t ever get back….
I continued with the Dymocks101 Challenge. Finished A Fine Balance by Rohinton Mistry, but I didn’t finish the whole list. It is taking me a LOOOONG time to read The Bible. But I should be finished by the time the next 101 list comes out in March!
There weren’t any particular lowlights, though it did take me quite a while to even begin to understand Ancillary Justice! Since getting to the end though, I’m desperate to get my hands on Ancillary Sword.
I’m looking forward to a great new year of blogging in 2016. I’m hoping to be much more organised with the scheduling! And I have to set some goals for the new year. I am DEFINITELY planning on joining a library, so that I spend a little less money on books. And I need to get on top of my enormous reading pile! I also need to make a slight effort with last year’s resolutions – I made good progress on #1 (more regular posting) and #2 (learning more about WordPress), but I didn’t manage to write many posts about bookish things, or habits (#3).
