2011 - End of Year Wrap Up

Hey guys, just wanted to say that I hope you all had a fantastic Christmas and wish you all the best for the new year! I’ve met some great people and have read some amazing books and can’t wait to see what 2012 brings!

Here’s my Top Ten Reads of 2011 - in no particular order…

  The Hunger Games Trilogy by Suzanne Collins – loved this series!
Shadows on the Moon by Zoe Marriott – Mega favourite set in a fairytale Japan!
Dance of Dragons by George RR Martin – Must read series!
New York to Dallas by JD Robb – The fact that it’s JD Rob should say it all!
Beauty by Robin Mckinley – Loved this fairytale retelling!

Perfect Chemistry by Simone Elkeles – Yummy Romance and bad boy’s!

A Most Improper Magick by Stephanie Burgis – I love Kat!

My Sister lives on the Mantel Piece by Annabel Pitcher – Touching but funny!

The Name of the Star by Maureen Johnson – Fab Debut!

Starcrossed by Josephine Angelini – Modern Day Homer, yes please!

I Would totally recommend all of these as they are all brilliant books!
See you all next year!

NaNoWriMo – Final count

Ok so I’ll admit, hands up that I didn’t finish my Nanowrimo this year.
Yet having said that, I don’t think 32,000 words is too shabby either, however as predicted life got in the way of actual writing. Still I’m really pleased with myself and hopefully sometime soon I’ll have at least a half workable novel to revise and keep me busy during 2012.
Anyway this was just a quick post to say thanks to everyone who supported me and put up with all crabbiness/ranting and general demoness tantrums this passed month, and also to congratulate all those people who did win Nanowrimo this year. You guys rock!
