Review of the Year 2010 (Part 1- What’s happened this year?)

Review of the Year 2009- part 1

Review of the Year 2009- part 2

Can you believe another year has gone? What a year too. I have discovered the book blog hop over at crazy for books, and Semicolon’s Saturday Review of Reviews. I’ve found lots of fantastic new blogs and gained some lovely readers.

I’ve read and reviewed a total of 53 books and given up on 1- partly because I really wasn’t getting into it, and partly because it got ruined by a leaky water bottle.

Of these books the majority, 47, have been fiction, 7 have been non-fiction and 1 could arguably be either! 9 books have been read from The Rory List

  1. I took a look at the Rory List because my daughter loves Gilmore Girls. Maybe it’s not so bad if it references so many good books. Happy Reading in 2011!

    I think Rory is a pretty good main character to have in terms of any influence she may have on views, and Lorelai isn’t bad either. I know it’s not the best programme but I really enjoy it
