I didn’t manage to reach my goal of 50 books for this year, but I did get through a variety of books and discovered some new favourites. As I did in 2011, I will be hosting a Christmas giveaway with my favourite books from this year. All you need to do to enter is leave a comment on this post letting me know which of the following books you would most like to receive: A Thousand Splendid Suns by Khaled Hosseini, Consider The Lobster by David Foster Wallace, The Beach by Alex Garland, The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood or The Secret History by Donna Tartt. The winners will be announced on January 18th, 2013 and please note that this giveaway is open to everyone, even my international readers. Good luck!
