  1. I would do the Q and A game but I really didn’t read many books in 2014, definitely not enough to do the challenge 😦 I know, it’s crazy, right? I love reading, but for some reason in the past two years I haven’t been reading much. And I have the LONGEST to read list ever. I am currently in the middle of the hobbit, and then I’m going to read “A Letter For The King.” After that, I’m going to read a book my mum gave me, and after I’ve read that, I’m going to read “The Castle Of Otranto” and then I have loads more books I want to read, but not in a specific order. XD

    I like your book answers 🙂

    Which of the books in this post did you enjoy the most?

    • Sorry, I didn’t see notifications of a lot of comments until just now. Hmpf. I’m just lucky I had time to read last year slowly figuring out work/life balance – I hear it takes a lifetime. Hmmmmm … I don’t know which book I enjoyed the most, that’s like choosing your favourite child; but Americanah was great, I got lost in the book and did not want it to end. I highly recommend it.
