Another year has come and gone and it can be marked in many ways but around here we mark it in books. (Of course the collage below doesn't count the books I re-read, just ones I read new.)
As I look at my books from this year I see some I love and some I... didn't. I see that I will be starting the year with another Sarah Addison Allen book --the perfect way to start the year in my opinion as I love her work! But mostly I see books missing. I feel like I didn't read enough this year, not because I didn't want to, but because I didn't have time to write reviews. (I have two reviews to write from October!) I know lots of bloggers can keep reading and go back and do it later, but I feel like I'm doing a disservice to the author, his/her work, and our readers by not reviewing it while it's fresh in my mind before moving on to something else. So I have to make a decision whether I'm not going to review every book I read or whether I'm going to continue to allow it to slow me down...
...any thoughts? How was your year in books?
