Happy 2014!

Out with the old in with the new. 

This blog has awoken from a deep slumber.

2013 drifted into the abyss of not reading. For November and December I didn't read much at all. I read Austin Kleon's Newspaper Blackout poetry and really enjoyed it. But that was pretty much it. In November I moved house and anyone who has sold a house and bought a new one will know it is so stressful and time consuming. It seemed to eat up my life and I just didn't pick up many books.

In October I read the whole of Maria V Snyder's Study series. I love her books so much. I'm waiting for Touch of Darkness to arrive so I can start 2014 with a great read.

In 2013 I set myself the challenge of reading 52 books but I didn't complete it. So I set it for myself again this year. 

Happy New Year everyone. Tell me: what was your best book of 2013? 

The book I couldn't put down was The 5th Wave. What a page-turner!

The book I thought was the most beautifully written was Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe.

Books I can't wait to read in 2014:
Trudi Canavan's  Thief's Magic: Book 1 of Millennium's Rule 
Kristen Britain's Mirror Sight: Book 5 of the Green Rider series

Happy New Year! I am glad you are back to blogging. I look forward to your posts. We moved in October, so I know all about how stressful moving is and unpacking, etc. I hope you are settling into your new place.

Happy New Year, Becky, and congratulations on the house move.

Your book reading challenge is a tough one, but I'd like to recommend Jay Kristoff's Stormdancer - it's Japanese style fantasy with a great heroine!

Christina, we're nicely settled in thanks. It's so great to have more space. Hope your new place has become a home too.

Katherine, Happy New Year. I'll look up that recommendation thanks very much. Hope you have lots of exciting things happening in 2014
