In Case You Missed It: December 2011

Another month has gone by and another year! I know the old adage says that the older you get, the faster the years go but it sure is true. I can't believe how fast 2011 flew by. When I look back at it, there are so many fond memories from the blog to take away.

December is always a fun month around the blogosphere because everyone does there yearly wrapups. I love reading my favorite bloggers best of lists because that means I can add many more books to my must read lists! If you haven't yet, please do check out my Favorite Covers of 2011 and my Favorite Reads of 2011!

In December I wrapped up all of my reading challenges. Now I had signed up for 15 so there were a couple I didn't quite finish but I manage to complete most so I was thrilled! Naturally, I've signed up for some more this year :)

As for my December reads, I managed seven books in December. Not my best reading month of the year, but considering how busy December is, I am pretty pleased with my progress. That made my total for the year 97 which is by far the most I've ever read in one year! My reading started off a little rough but it ended on a high note. Over all here's how it broke down:

All in all, if I had to pick a favorite read from December it would have to be More Than Words Can Say by Robert Barclay. What was your favorite read in December?

  1. It was kind of a 50/50 month for you, huh? I have Dreaming In English in my bookshelf. I may have to move it up in the rotation. I also have The Mistress' Revenge. I'm thinking I may wait on that one.

  5. I'm intrigued by your D rating of A Thousand Acres. It has been years since I have read it and I remember I didn't love it but can't seem to remember much more than that. I might have to skim that one again.
