2019 Books in Review

2019 has been quite a good year for reading and I’ve managed to get my one-book-a-week resolution kept for the whole year. What’s even better, with a combination of audiobooks and e-books, I have managed to surpass my 52 book limit.

I think I did even better than 2018.

2018 Books in Review

2018 was a great year for reading and here is a list of all the books read in the 1 year period. 124 books (not counting Stephen King’s as I’ve only reviewed them but I’ve officially read them years ago). Newcomer Bentley Little surprised me with his take on horror with The Walking and the Netflix show “The Haunting Of Hill House” introduced me to agoraphobic writer Shirley Jackson.

Biggest read accomplishment of the year is Ayn Rand’s “Atlas Shrugged”, a beast of a book which in audio format took 3 months of commuting to finish off. Biggest disappointment is as ever, V.C. Andrews.

If you are planning a New Years Eve party, you might want to consider requesting your guest wear formal attire to the party. Although this is not necessary, it can make the entire party appear more elegant and formal. It can also help to create a more formal atmosphere for the party. When hosting a New Years Eve party in your home, the predominant reason for requiring formal attire is to set a particular mood or atmosphere. However, if you are hosting your New Years Eve party at another location such as a catering hall, there may be other reasons to necessitate formal attire. Some restaurants or catering halls have their own requirements regarding attire. If you opt to host your party in one of these locations, you have to ensure your guests adhere to these requirements.
