At the beginning of 2011 I decided that I would review all the books I read. I always thought I read a lot. Always have since I was little, and I was curious to know just how much.
Well here you have it. I read 29! books this year. And reviewed them all.
This is a huge achievement for me, I’m so glad I did as now I have a record. When you read a lot of books, they can sometimes blur into one another. Especially the ‘easy reading’ or ‘chic flick’ ones. These days, some bright spark has decided it would be a good idea to re publish books with new modern covers. I’m made the mistake once this year of buying a book then realising a couple of chapters in that I’ve read it and they’ve changed the cover. Annoying.
Remember the first book of 2011?
If you are interested, I am planning on trying to make a page for all my reviews to sit on, just to keep it all neat and tidy.
My favourite books of 2011?
I loved this book. I heard about it through blog land and had to search for it, but eventually tracked it down. It’s so informative and I could relate it to my day job, my dream job, and my experiences as a consumer. It really is a book everyone should read you will never think of shopping in the same light again!
This book was a favourite due to it being so different to anything I had read before. In a world saturated with teenage vampires this book enters the world beyond ours in a much more adult way.
This book is actually the one that took me the longest to finish, it took me months to read, and I read lots of others in between finishing this. Yet it was one of my absolute favourites. The reason I took so long was that it is such a big heavy hardback, so was not very portable, I usually like to have a book with me at all times but this one had to stay at home, meaning I read a few other books in between the pages of this.
Then there was this book.
Just that. Read it.
Santa was good to me in the book department, and I can’t wait to see what’s waiting for me between the pages this year.
