Happy New Year, folks!
This was certainly an eventful year for me. I started this blog in June and have come farther than I thought I would. I discovered a lot of new awesome books this year and I wrapped up 2009 reading 74 books. Just one short of 75, darn it! The last two I finished were Devil's Cub by Georgette Heyer, which I unfortunately dislike immensely. I also finished Again the Magic by Lisa Kleypas, which was my first read by Kleypas. I enjoyed it. Hopefully I'll get in the mood to write a review for it soon. As for what I'm currently reading, I started up Where Serpents Sleep by C.S. Harris, Book #4 in the Sebastian St. Cyr mystery series. So far it is very intriguing.
I also completed NaNoWriMo for the second year in a row and while stressful, I loved my story better than the one I wrote in 2008.
I completed two challenges this year: the Back to School Challenge and the Period Drama Challenge. With the start of a new year starts all the new challenges: All About the Brontës' Challenge, Women Unbound Challenge and Historical Fiction Reading Challenge are the ones I'm participating in and stupid me goes and joins another one. I am eying one more, too. I must control myself.
And on the final day of 2009 I watched The Young Victoria. It was an incredibly beautiful, dramatic and moving film. One of my favorites of last year!
I can't wait to see what 2010 brings. Have a great week!
