2009 Year in Review

Well, I hit my goal of reading 100 books in 2009. I actually read 115! And that was without reading a single book in December (how did that happen??). Nine of the books I read were re-reads, but that means I did still read over 100 NEW books. Woohoo!

I would have to say that my favorite book of the year was The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. It was one of the first books of the year for me. I also read the sequel, which was great...and the third (and final) book in the series comes out this summer, so I'm really looking forward to that!

I discovered a lot of new authors and genres this year, I stepped outside my usual box quite a bit, and read a lot of great books! I read a lot of young adult books, and a lot of series.

I did NOT reach my goal of reviewing every book I read. It just got to be too much later in the year, with pregnancy, a busy toddler, and everything else going on!

Overall, a great year of reading though -- and I have a lot of books lined up to read this year as well, so I'm looking forward to that...assuming I can find the time! It is going to be a busy year I think!
