Anybody who knows me will be aware that I'm mathematically challenged. Besides, I hate giving numbers of stars as reviews and Top 5's or 10's or whatever numbers give me heartburn, so instead, I wanted to just re-mention some of the books that made my reading 2012. I was rather pleased to have hit the 120 that I set myself as a goal on Goodreads (in fact if I was up to date with reviews) I reckon that number will end up much closer to 140, which is not a bad effort given that it was a hellishly busy year all round. But enough waffle.
It slipped down the back of the couch. The dog ate the cover. Somebody hid it on me. Really I have no idea why it's taken me so long to get to THE MISTAKE. Honestly there are days when I wonder whether it's my brain down the back of the couch....
