A new year (and a slightly new layout!)

I'll start by saying happy new year to everyone! Can you believe that it's already 2012? I can't, and I'm a bit scared by how fast time seems to be passing me by. If you've been visiting my blog lately, you would have realised that 2011 was not my brightest year in terms of blogging: I think the grand total of two blog posts (both within the last three days) speak for themselves. Shame on me! Actually, shame on school for keeping me away from books and blogging. Ah well, gotta have priorities I guess!

I'm really going to make an effort to spend more time reading. I miss always having a book on the go, so that shall be fixed in the upcoming year. Also, you might have noticed that I changed the layout slightly on my blog. A new year means a fresh start, so I think it's pretty fitting!

I hope you all have a wonderful year - make it count!

P.S. I'm just over half way through Monsters of Men, so I should have a review ready to be posted soon. It's a miracle!

2011 was bad for me in reading as well. Good luck in 2012!

Emidy, I like the new look. Simple. Easy to read. Happy New Year to you and I look forward to hearing your thoughts about the Patrick Ness book. I've yet to read them, but hope to in 2012.

Hey, miracles come in all shapes and sizes...so why not in the form of a review? ^_^ Can't wait to hear your thoughts on the MONSTERS OF MEN book...a friend of a friend read it and said it was pretty good, though I haven't sampled this author's work myself as of yet. Happy reading!

Happy New Year, Emidy!! :) Shame on me too in regards of blogging in 2011...Jeez, the second half of the year was awful. I didn't have much posts up too. I sorta just..disappeared!

Goodluck with 2012, Emidy! Hope it's a good one for you too! :)
