Last Make it Monday~

If you found time to link up last week, make sure to drop by Donna's to see if she featured your project.

Party Every Monday Night
Blogging everyday for over 5 years is a very hard habit to break, but the time has come for me to devote some of my time to other interests.  I hope to still post from time to time, when I have something to share but otherwise things will slow down here at Etcetorize.

This means that this will be the last Make it Monday party.  I've loved having you stop by to share all of your creativity and I've been so lucky to have such a great co-host in Donna.  The party was short lived but we were both so thrilled with the turn-out every week.  It was so much more than either of us ever expected.

So, we decided to go out with a bang.  This week want you to link up anything you want at all.  If you had time to post something new this past week you can link that up, but if you were like me and spent most of your time with your family and enjoying the holiday you can link up your all time favourite post.

Donna and I will still try to get to as many as we can to comment and she has graciously offered to pick some features for next week over on Distressed Donna Down Home.

Thank you everyone for partying with us!  It's been fun~

Books This Year

Somewhere around mid year I noticed a little feature on Goodreads where you could post your goal for how many books you wanted to read for the year.

I knew that I had lost quite a bit of time earlier in the year when I got sidetracked by watching all 7 seasons of Stark Trek: The Next Generation in a row, so I randomly figured I could read 30 books by the end of the year....and I did!



There are a few in there that I didn't tell you about on any Tell a Tale Thursday posts.  That's because I wanted to keep my reading posts here to just the good ones (that's a nice way of saying that there were a few duds), but if you find me on Goodreads you can read all of my reviews.

The top reads for me this year were easily Cane River and The Flower Boy.  They were both beautiful stories that took me outside of my regular Historical Fiction genre.

I'm so grateful for Goodreads.  Without it I'd never remember some of the books I read.  And it keeps me honest too!  I thought I had read so many more books than 30 but the years are starting to melt into one another now so I'm probably just remembering great books from past years.

Next year I'll shoot for 40 books.  As long as I limit my Netflix time this should be easily reachable.  How about you?  What did your year in books look like?  What was your favourite book of the year?  Leave a comment below~
