So I have a confession to make. Not only am I reading Magic Lost, Trouble Found AGAIN-- it's almost the only thing I've read this month.
I've only read 4 other books this month and THREE of those were cotton-candy mysteries. Total Fluff.
So.... what does one review when one hasn't read anything new? A list, of course!
Here's my 2008 Year in Review:
January- 7 books, including one called Ghostwalk that I completely do not remember. Weird.
February- 2 books. Hey, it's a short month. About Alice by Calvin Trillin and Haveli by Suzanne Fisher Staples. Both quite good, as I recall. Though I think Haveli was kind of sad.
March- 2 books. In my defense, one was A Tree Grows in Brooklyn, which took my forever. (Like the 2nd half of Feb. and the first half of March.)
April- 11 books. Including The Camel Bookmobile which I wanted to love, but really didn't, as well as my introduction to Tasha Alexander.
May- 17 books. Including Magic Study and Fire Study (I read Poison Study in April). I love those books.
June- 8 books. And one was Tarzan. That was kind of a trippy read.
July- 3 books. I moved in July. You try to read in the middle of a move.
August- 3 books. See July.
September- 8 books. That's when I read Persuasion and You Can Never Find A Rickshaw When It Monsoons.
October- 23 books. I read most of the Reader's Choice books in October. Mostly because the voting ends Oct. 31st.
November- 14 books. Not bad given that it's the start of the holiday madness.
Interesting to look back over the year. (Okay, interesting to me. It may not, in fact, be interesting to anyone else.)
I'll read more soon, I promise. I only got two books for Christmas, though. And I've already read one of them. It's all good, though. It was a great day.
