Round Up for 2009

I thought I would round up my year about now, because the rest of this week will be lost in NyQuil and revelry for the new year.

I first want to wish everyone a wonderful new year...and make a wish on NYE on the Blue Moon that will be out that night...maybe it will come true!

Here are some stats:
I started blogging in Sep 2009....since then I have:
- Read and Reviewed: 78 books.
- Been to 4 book signings.
- Completed 0 challanges...but signed up for 4 for 2010.
- Made some wonderful friends here in the Blog World.
- Discovered Goodreads and Calibre.

Here are some of my fav reads from 2009:

  1. Kresley Cole is my crack I love love love her. Have you read Jeanine Frost Night Huntress series? You would totally love it.

  2. You did really well, Monica!
    I can only sign your thoughts about How to Marry a Millionaire Vampire. I read that one a few years ago and really enjoyed it :-)

  3. I love the Kerrelyn Sparks books. They are some of my favorites. Ooh and I loved Jessica's Guide. One of my favorites of this year, too!

  4. I have just started reading the Love at Stakes series. I am currently reading "Secret Life of a Vampire." I wasn't aware that it was a series when I picked it up, and it's book six. I just found this out the other day after I had already started haha. I don't really seem to be having any difficulty following anything though. Do you know if they are stand-alones or do you think they should be read in order?

    I absolutely LOVED Jessica's Guide too! Can't wait for Beth's new book to come out! :)

  5. I love Goodreads :) I haven't read any of the books you mention but they sure do sound good. It also sounds as though you've had a busy few months since you started blogging. I began in July and have loved every minute :)

    Happy New Year!
