merry christmas
Hi, everyone. Today I am here to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!

I will be going home (Portugal) for Christmas tomorrow and will only be coming back on 6th January. This doesn’t mean I will abandon you completely, but I won’t be able to post or check your blogs as regularly. However, I have scheduled a few posts to go live automatically as well. So you shouldn’t miss me. If you need anything, just drop me an email.

I have also updated my Review policy, and I want to say again thanks to everyone who submit requests. If I could, I would read and review every single book!

By the way: These lovely Christmas graphics are part of a freebie pack offered by creativemarket.com (you can get yours too, it’s free this week only).



My Year 2015 in Books

These graphics and stats come from Goodreads. I have read 70 books this year, but I have included a few short stories as well.

My favourite book of 2015 was Wild Seed by Octavia E. Butler – I can’t believe I haven’t read this book before. I haven’t written a review yet, be patient with me.

The other books that I have rated 5 stars include Feast of Fates (4.5 stars); The Day The Saucers Came (short story by Neil Gaiman), and Volume 2 in Red Sneaker writer series.

I have given 4 stars to many books, so this was a good reading year.

I’ve only given 2 stars to six books, and NO DNF (no 1 stars). Pretty cool, uh?

The longest book I have read this year was Malice by John Gwynne. 672 pages of epicness.

It’s interesting to see the stats. I have read many short stories and anthologies this year, and I have started reading graphic novels too! Fantasy is a big part of my reading habits, but no surprise there. What is surprising is how much I have read about writing this year.

How about you? How was 2015 for you?

    Wow it is awesome to see all the demographics like this! I’m not as on top of my goodreads, so I can’t give the exact demographics, but I know I read quite a few books :p
