Thank you for visiting Second Run Reviews on a regular basis. When I was over on Blogger I had a total of 23493 pages views and since I moved over to WordPress I’ve had a total of 2955 views with a total of 521 comments. Without you, I would just be screaming my love for books, movies and television into the cosmos.

In this last year, I have posted a total of 58 book reviews. I read 69 books for a total of 20677 pages. I believe I have written reviews for all the books I read except for one or two—Eleanor & Park and All Our Yesterdays stick out in my mind. Eleanor & Park was very popular this year and I loved it, like almost everyone else so I didn’t feel the need to add my love for in detail all over the interwebs. I’m not sure why I didn’t review All Our Yesterdays as I did enjoy it!

    Looks like you had a great year! 🙂 Can’t wait to see what you have in store for us in 2015! 🙂

    • I’m really excited, Stormi. Over the holiday break I worked on a discussion post and a movie review (or two)! Should be great.

  2. Oh your goals are fantastic. XD GO YOU. I don’t buy a lot of books, but still, my goal of this year is to have no unread books on my shelf. HA HA. It’s sooo not going to happen, but I can always try, right?!

    Thanks for stopping by @ Paper Fury!

    • If I can clear my physical shelf that would be awesome! And totally doable since I read between 50 and 60 books a year. I’m dreaming now of how cool it would be to have a completely empty top shelf in my bookcase by December 31, 2015. WOW! It would be like winning an Oscar.

    So when I do my personal “Year in Review” I always ask favorite and least favorite book. Thoughts on yours?
