29 June 2011


As we are now half way through the year, I thought I would do a bit of a recap on the past six months (Jan-June 2011)….

I’ve read 36 books (or 12,475 pages),
taken 260 bus trips,
drunk 206 coffees,
written only 2,120 words (oops!)
and deleted 1,665 words.

                                                                          * * * * * 
Longest book read:
The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss - 662 pages

Shortest book read:
Odd and the Frost Giants by Neil Gaiman - 112 pages

Most number of books in a series read:
10 – The Sookie Stackhouse series by Charlaine Harris

                                                                           * * * * * 
Favourite cover:
Dead Beautiful by Yvonne Woon (does anyone else think the model on the UK cover looks a lot like Amy from Doctor Who...?!)

Best hunk:
Eric from the Sookie Stackhouse series by Charlaine Harris

Best couple:
Tris and Four from Divergent by Veronica Roth

                                                                          * * * * * 

Best Dystopian read:
I couldn't decide between Matched by Ally Condie and Divergent by Veronica Roth. Both were brilliant!

Best Fantasy read:
Because they are both so different I have to pick  The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss and The Colour of Magic by Terry Pratchett.

What have been your 'bests' from the past 6 months?

I can't believe you've kept track of the number of cups of coffee you've had

haha! doesn't everyone ;)

it was really just a rough guesstimate. my boyfriend reckons he drank over 1,500 coffees since the new year...gah - far to much coffee! and we have far too much time!

I love Divergent! Though I haven't read Matched yet (I've been meaning to for ages :S) so I'm probably unreliable at this point hahaha.

Anyway, the new Dead Beautiful cover is so gorgeous! The old one was like, urgh. But this one gets my thumbs up(:

Thanks for stopping by my blog!
