My 2008 in Review

It's that time of year when everyone goes through their lists of what they read the last year. So, here's my wrap up, although I might have some additions if I can finish any books in the next couple of days (three to be exact)...

Total books read in 2008 - 71

Books I rated the highest (5 stars):

Catch As Cat Can by Rita Mae Brown
Larceny and Old Lace by Tamara Myers
Murder of A Pink Elephant by Denise Swanson
A Sexy Time of It by Cara Summers

Choosing to Be by Kat Tansey (review to come soon!)

First book I read in 2008: Strokes of Midnight by Hope Tarr (Harlequin Blaze)
Last book I read in 2008: Choosing to Be by Kat Tansey (but that could change if I fit another book in between now and Wednesday night).

I didn't do well in challenges in 2008, but my excuse is that I didn't discover challenges until late in the year. We'll see how I do when I have the full year to read.


  1. You did very well with your reading this year. It's fun to see everyone's best of the year lists. :-)

  2. Thanks...I felt as if I could do better though. Maybe 2009 will be a better one for me.

  3. I'm not sure I'll have the time to do a 2008 Year in Review, although I've enjoyed reading them at other blogs.

    I hope your 2009 reading is as fun/fulfilling for you!

    Thanks for stopping by, and for your comments on my Tuesday Thingers!
