looking back at 2009 for me there was good and bad times but all of them in the end only made me stronger i am sure.....i re-discovered my love for reading and am totally hooked on it again....if you have checked out my "read while i'm alive" blog you would have seen the slowly rising list of books i read during the year.... my total at the years end was a massive 112 different books read!!! woohoo i am lovin that!!! because i actually read some of them a few times...some i just had to read again and again ...hehehehehe......i actually read 139 books!!! woohoo!!!!! i have read 2 so far this year already..hehehehe......it would seem i am developing my own little library ...at least you all know where to come if you need a good book....hehehehehe.....i have to give a huge shout out of thanks to kate, karen B and my mum ...kate for putting me onto Nora Roberts who has become a major fav of mine and to Karen for putting me onto JR Ward and her black dagger brotherhood...oh my god how yummy are they!!!! drool drool drool...hehehehehe.....i think they might be my absolute fav for the year, to my gorgeous mum who put me onto Kresley Cole...another awesome story teller with totally addictive books...so can't wait for her new books this year!!!.....another fav would be Sherrilyn Kenyon's dark hunter series that the gorgeous girls at Rendezvous bookshop put me onto...awesome stories and yummy hotties to boot!!! i am kicking the new year off with KM moning's highlander series..another reccommendation from the girls at Rendezvous that is spot on!! awesome books girls...xxx
