I can’t believe how quickly the year has flown by! Or that it’s time once again to post my “favourite books of the year” post. Goodness!
Once again this year, I haven’t read nearly as much as I would have liked to, but at this point I’m just 2-3 books shy of my goal, which I can hopefully reach… though, with the holidays, I’m not sure how much time I’ll actually have. Eep.
I did a pretty good job at reading books that had been on the TBR pile for a long time this year, and with a lot of those I ended up cursing the fact that I hadn’t read them previously. I also read a lot of previously undiscovered authors that I hadn’t known anything about before. And then there was a lot of Georgette Heyer, which is pretty damn awesome in my opinion… While there was a whole lot that I thoroughly enjoyed, today I wanted to share, in no particular order, what my ten favourite reads of the year were.
