This week on Gone with the Words:
Top Ten Tuesday: Favorite Books I Read in 2011
Waiting on Wednesday: Chopsticks
Clockwork Prince by Cassandra Clare – Goodreads Updates Edition
TGIF is a weekly feature created and hosted by GReads! that re-caps the week’s posts and has different question each week.
This week’s question: First & Last: What was the first book you read in 2011 and the last you finished in 2011? How do you feel about these books? Would you recommend them to other readers?
The first book I read this year, from January 1st to January 2nd, was Kelley Armstrong’s Tales of the Otherworld, which is a collection of short stories from her widely known adult series, Women of the Otherworld. This is one of my most favorite series out there. I love it the same now as I did when I read it a year ago, and I will push this series on anyone who wants to dabble into and adult genre. It’s still paranormal mystery, but not overly sexual if it’s something that scares you.
The last book I will be reading in 2011 is Divergent, which I started today and will be done with by Saturday. I promised lots of bookish friends I’d read it before the year was over and I’m cutting it close, but I’m doing it!! :D
This week’s question: The New Year is here – and everyone wants to know your New Years Blogging Resolution! What are you going to try to revise, revamp and redo for 2012 on your blog?
The most important for me is to continue to keep blogging fun, which I was able to do this whole year.
Second would be to get better organized..schedule more reviews ahead of time, as in weeks, instead of days.
Third, comment more. Comments are nice to receive, so I want to give more of my blogging friends that nice feeling. :)
Fourth, hang out with my local bookish friends more, be out at signings, book events, or just lunch.
