Yearly Reading Wrap-up at Moonshine and Rosefire

Hello everyone out there and I hope that you all had a terrific reading year for yourselves. I am known as Rosefire around the Internet and this is my new personal reading blog. I originally posted my reviews over at my daughter's blog, Emeraldfire's Bookmark but am now in the process of transferring them all over to my own blog. My daughter makes blogging look like so much fun that I thought that I would try it out for myself! :)

Anyway, I started out January with about 915 unread books lying around the house and ended December with 1,013 books unread. All of the books that I acquired this year came from Amazon, authors, Price ChopperNetgalley, Bookmooch, Paperback Swap, Library Book Sales and friends. Quite a number of my books that I read this year left my house to go to new homes so that's something I guess. :)

Let me try to break down the influx for you:

- A Ship Made of Paper: A Novel by Scott Spencer
- Live to Tell by Lisa Gardner
- Now You Know by Kitty Dukakis and Jane Scovell
- Still Talking by Joan Rivers and Richard Meryman
- Guilt by Association by Susan R. Sloan
Circle of Three: A Novel by Patricia Gaffney
- The Basement by Bari Wood

The Miracle at St. Bruno's by Philippa Carr
