Truth be told, I'm not sure if I should start with the best or the worst...

Yeah, methinks I shall start with the worst. That would be 1-2 star ratings.

Now, in retrospect, my year in reading wasn't as bad as I thought. I truthfully felt like there was more bad than good, but looking at it now, it's about even if you include the 3 star books (which I do since I was unimpressed by them).


Well, fingers crossed, 2015 will be better.


Toodles!
