My Read Books For 2009

It’s yet again the end of another year and like every year I’ve come to the end of my reading list.

I started keeping track of what books I would read through out the year, first as a challenge, and then just for the fun of it. These are the books I’ve read during the year.

If you’ve followed me from my other blog – Meanderings – this will probably be very familiar to you. That’s because I’m posting it here as well and if not it’s probably because I haven’t posted it yet.

A couple of years ago I began keeping track of what I read during the year (I read a lot). At first it was part of a 50 Book Challenge, but after I read twice that many books I just started keeping a list instead of challenging myself to read a certain amount or a certain type of book.

I’ve rated them for everyone’s benefit from 1-5 hearts and I’ve linked the books to their websites or the author’s websites, but only of the first one if it’s a series.

1 – Awful and I would like my time back

2 ♥♥ – On the crap side, but can still stomach it or absolute trash, but entertaining because it’s so trashy.

3 ♥♥♥ – Average. It either had a good story line, but wasn’t written well or it just didn’t rock my world enough.

4 ♥♥♥♥ – Entertaining and hard to put down.

5 ♥♥♥♥♥ – Can’t stop thinking about it during reading and after reading because of the content, delivery, or how well it was written.
