Here's a little breakdown of things that I've done this year, and some of my favorite things...
I read my first Jane Austen novel
(Persuasion, click the link to read my review; it's been one of my favorite adaptations and I am so glad to have finally read it!)
I read my first Kathy Reichs novel
(Deja Dead, click the link to read my review; after years of Bones obsession, it's great to finally see where it all started, even if it is completely different!)
I participated in Banned Books Week
(I read Twenty Boy Summer in honor of it, click the link to read my review; I've always felt strongly about Banned Books Week so it was amazing to be part of it while in the book blog community)
I participated in NaNoWriMo for the first time
I did a guest post for the first time
(Thanks to the awesome Alison Can Read for letting me talk about Twilight jewelry)
I bought a Nook and discovered amazing Indie Authors
I discovered the awesomeness that is dystopian novels
(Lauren Oliver's Delirium started it all)
I also read some powerful, life-changing, and just awesome novels I'll never forget
(Kirsten Hubbard's Wanderlove, Jandy Nelson's The Sky Is Everywhere, Nina LaCour's Hold Still, Madeleine L'Engle's And Both Were Young, Marie Landry's Blue Sky Days, Kody Keplinger's The Duff, and many more, listed above and reviewed on my blog, I just don't have enough space to post more pictures and gush about it all!)
There are so many more awesome books that I read and reviewed, but this is just a little sampling of my favorites.
