Farewell 2008, Hello 2009

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and a very happy New Year.

2008 was a good reading year for me.

I read 80 books.

I discovered Young Adult books.

I found some amazing new to me authors: Maggie O’Farrel, E.Lockhart, John Green, Sarah Dessen, Diana Peterfreund, Me Cabot,

I only read a handful of books I didn’t care for.

I discovered I don’t do well with challenges. I like the idea but as soon as I have to read a book, I get that homework feeling and put it off!

Reading Goals for 2009 are:

To read 80 books or more, might be tricky this year with the arrival of a baby in June, but they sleep right?

To try at least 10 new to me authors.

To keep up to date with my reviews and try and make them proper rather than one line, although I do like one line reviews.

Hope you all have a wonderful 2009


  1. Happy New Year and good luck with your goals!


  2. happy new year! i also read 80 books in 2008.

    BTW the year my son was born (April of 1999), i read 76 books – so i think it’s definitely do-able for you to get 80 again in 2009. 🙂


  3. Young adult books are so amazing. Sarah Dessen is one of my favorite authors.


I adore comments, so thanks so much for taking the time. I'll try and return the favour 😀
