I actually found this years quite tough – looking back I have been swept into many stories, but some critics may say that the books were all much of a muchness – all the same. Maybe so but do you know – I have thoroughly enjoyed all I have read and been honest with the ones that I haven’t enjoyed and actually given up on a couple as well. In terms of my reading, I call that progress.

Here is to the next 6 months which no doubt will have some more of the same and quite a lot new too!
