Wrapping Up 2011 and New Beginnings for 2012

I can't believe a year has passed already.  It feels like I've done so little, when really, this year was full of firsts.  I started The Hollow Cupboards in May, 2011.  It's the first time I've actually kept up a blog, which must be because I love it so much.  I can't say it was a bad year, because it was actually better than most.

In one year of blogging, I've created 136 posts, posted 33 book reviews, read a total of 40 books, managed to acquire 235 more books on my shelves and gained 350 followers.  Some of you may think that these are all small numbers, but I'm quite proud of myself.  I'm determined to keep going.

Some of my favorite books I've read in 2011 were...

-Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver
-Hereafter by Tara Hudson
-Hex Hall by Rachel Hawkins
-Warm Bodies by Isaac Marion
-Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher
-Perfect Chemistry by Simone Elkeles
-Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins
-The Duff by Kody Keplinger
-The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin
-Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi

The first book I read in the year was The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky and the last I've finished was Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater.  I'm currently reading Shattered Souls by Mary Lindsey but I'll be finishing that in early January.  

I hope that 2012 will be filled with many more firsts and this this blog continues to grow as well as it has so far.  There are so many things that I can think of doing to improve it.  I also want to wish everyone a safe and happy new year.  Thank you so much for being a part of the blog and encouraging me to stick with it.  I know a lot of you don't know that you're my inspiration, but you are.  :)
