Four Things on Friday

1) The Cybils Finalists have been announced. I'm very happy to see three of my favourite reads of 2010  in there; Harmonic Feedback by Tara Kelly and I Now Pronounce You Someone Else by Erin McCahan in the Young Adult category, and Plain Kate by Erin Bow in the Fantasy and Science Fiction (Young Adult) category. Are any of your favourite there?

2) I have a busy few month ahead and I've been thinking about taking the blog in a new direction too. So I'm going to be doing less reviews, but the reviews I do post will be books I really love. I do keep a list of all the books I read on Goodreads though, so if we're not friends on there please send me a request, because I love talking about books. I'm also being a lot meaner with my five stars this year, so you know if I give something five stars I REALLY loved it.

3) Talking of books I just finished Jane Eyre. I can't say I loved it, a certain coincidence really annoyed me, but I liked it a lot more than I thought I would. Plus I found a certain famous line comes from it - I had no idea!  Also I can't wait for the film, which looks super.

4) Don't you love it when you recommend a book and that person loves it. It's so satisfying.  My friend Kim just finished Grace by Elizabeth Scott and thought it was fabulous (which it is) you can read her review here.

Have a great weekend everyone.

  1. Yay for Harmonic Feedback and I Now Pronounce You Someone Else! Love those two books.

    I still need to read Grace. Actually I haven't read much Elizabeth Scott. Will have to go check out that review.

    Have a great weekend :)

  6. I finished my year with Jane Eyre and over all really REALLY enjoyed it. I was just a wee bit put off by the end. Seemed a bit over the top for me.

  9. I'm a bit under-read on that list, but there's one way to fix that! I can't wait to hear about your thoughts on the new direction for the blog--I enjoy all your posts and I've got some great recommendations from you. Plain Kate just arrived at my place and I can't wait to read.
