2008 Review

I meant to do this last night, but wasn't feeling all to well, so I'm doing it now, so here it is, my 2008 review of the books I read. This was my first year (well I was only here for five months) as a book blogger, and I'm somewhat pleased with my accomplishments. :)
I've read 44 books, which is pretty good considering (I've read more if you include each individual short story from my collections of short stories I read :))

I didn't finish a single challenge. DOH! Although, I did sign up for most of these challenges with only 4-5 months left in the challenges, so it made things a little more difficult. This year will be different!

My greatest accomplishment in the challenge side was the 24 Hour Read-a-thon. I had a blast, although was exhausted the next day.

My greatest accomplishment in the readering, was Les Miserables finishign the unabridged version. It took a while, but it was worth it. It is also one of my favourite reads of the year.

My least favourite reades of the year were:
The Other Bolyen Girl
Pillars of the Earh
Confessions of a Shopoholic

My Favourite Books of the year were:
Les Miserables
Atonement
Watermelon
The Black Tulip
My Sisters Keeper
To the Light House
The Handmaids Tale
The Three Worlds Series

And finally, books I started in 2008, but haven't finished
