2012 in Review

So 2012 was a very full and busy year for me.  I reached my Goodreads goal of 100 books and even surpassed it.  Was hoping to hit 130 but alas it was only 123.  I've read a lot of good books this year, and some that were just okay but others I've become addicted to and still think about from time to time when a friend mentions the series.  Twilight Series is over in move version.  Hunger Games movies has just started.  There are also new movies coming out this year that I can't wait to see that are all based on books.  It's a beautiful thing to find out a movie you liked was actually a book first. 

So Many firsts happened this year as well.  It was my first time to BEA which was complete chaos but I think I'll be good for next year if I go.  You know better prepared and all.  This was the year I discovered NetGalley, and even though I'm not 100% fond of their new version I still love the site and have read many great books because of them.  Also I've joined a lot of blog tours this year, it was great to read books I never would have otherwise have read if it weren't for the tours, did that make sense.  Anyway so yeah it helped me discover a great amount of books and this year has been just a wonderful book reading fun year and I can't wait to see what exciting new book I will get to read this year.  And not to mention all the books I didn't get to read in 2012.

So I hope everyone had a Happy New Year! and that you all get to read as much as you want to read this year.  Happy Reading everyone!
