A Year in review

Its been quite the year for me with a great deal of change. I’ve done poorly after my move in getting back into the blogging routine not to mention I haven’t done fantastic in reviewing throughout the year. Once my move came in to play it took the majority of my focus. I’m hoping that 2013 will be an improvement for me as 2012 I failed all the reading challenges I set for myself. I’m still not sure if I should be more conservative or set the same kind of goal for 2013 but I do hope to review more and read more books off my own shelf. I will try, try, to catch up on reading the books I’ve been wanting to.

Despite my reading fails I did read some fantastic books as I do every year. My faves from 2012 are




The Infection by Craig DiLouie. The best zombie book I’ve read and one I got a fellow blogger hooked on. Craig heard about this and as thanks kindly mailed me a signed copy of the sequel which is quite the pride and joy on my book shelf.








Lakebride Spring by Natasha Troop. The same blogger who I got hooked on The Infection got me hooked on the Lakebridge series. Thanks Kriss. I am so thrilled to have read this book, discovering new authors is always a pleasure and Natasha is one of my new favorite authors. This is a must read book.









Lakebridge Summer by Natasha Troop the sequel to Spring continues the story and what a story it is. Evil, evil, evil permeates a town and what a facsinating writing style Natasha has. I simply love all the points of view.







There are many more but these three are the tops favorites, if they are ones you haven’t yet read or added to the TBR list I highly recommend them. Lot’s more to come and I’m working on getting back to a regular blogging routine. Happy reading in 2013 everyone 🙂

  2. I’ve moved a lot so I know what it’s like. I don’t know how anyone keeps up a blog during a move. Enjoy your new books and have a Happy New Year!

  3. It’s difficult to stay on top of reading and reviewing when there’s a lot happening in life. I know I’ve certainly slowed down these past two months and when there’s pressure on to read/ review it can take the fun out of the stories.

    Now that you’ve settled into your new place, perhaps 2013 will be a year of meeting some of your reading goals!

    All the best,

  4. I know what you mean – I’ve had an eventful 2012 that knocked me off my blogging routine too! I hope 2013 is a better year for you, a little less hectic at least! Good luck on the new challenges and my goal is to also read books off my own shelf more than I have since I started blogging too!

    Happy New Years! 😀
