2012: A Year in Books!

Posted December 31, 2012 by Melissa in | 15 Comments

2012 was a big year for me! 
My first full year blogging as I didn’t start my blog until August of 2011 and my first year at BEA.  I’ve read so many great books and “met” so many great people!

I hosted my first Reading Challenge: The Witches & Witchcraft Reading Challenge which was a huge success with over 250 participants and over 265 reviews linked up!  Want to join for 2013?? Click on the button below!

  1. I think I need to look into Pies and Prejudice. I am assuming it has similiarities to Pride and Prejudice? P&P is my favorite book and I am always a such for any kind of retelling.

  2. Happy New Year Melissa! Hope you had a good Christmas. I enjoyed reading your list of favourites and love your blog. I am looking forward to reading Gone Girl.

  3. Wow Melissa, you’ve had a busy year! Are you going to BEA next year as well? I’d love to meet you:)

    And Shadow and Bone and The Immortal Rules were favorite reads of mine this year too. Can’t wait for both sequels!
