Happy New Year!

So, I'm back!  Naughty me as I didn't post anything for the last half of December, but I have a goodish reason...Firstly, the week prior to Christmas, I was round my boyfriend's house and things worked out that I didn't manage to get any computer access while I was there and then for the past 11 days I've been on holiday.  Hence all my time had to be used going on roller coasters, being a sorcerer of the Magic Kingdom and exploring The Wizarding World of Harry Potter. 

Some book things were accomplished...eventually.  Just before I went I read Poppy Z. Brite's vampire tale, Lost Souls, and while away I did manage to read Mockingbird, Chuck Wendig's superb - if slightly inferior -sequel to Blackbirds, which I will get around to reviewing sometime this week or next. Also, as part of my MIB:Alien Attack winnings, I got a copy of Veronica Roth's Divergent after seeing the sequel, Insurgent, on so many 'I want to read this book in 2013' lists and a copy of Rot and Ruin by Jonathan Maberry.

So did everyone else have a good time over the holidays?  And did you receive any of the books that were on your Top Ten Tuesday list?  I hope you did, and that you have a prosperous reading year in 2013!

P.S....while looking for Community season 3 DVDs and failing, I found something else...


  1. I recently just re-watched all the Daria episodes. SO GOOD!

  2. I know! They've been repeating the first season over here in the u.k, and not moving onto other seasons, so I'm planning a marathon weekend at some point to refresh my memory on the awesomeness that is Daria and Sick Sad World!
