Featuring my favourite three reads for 2018 and some other highlights
My final tally of top m/m reads for the year, including some queer SF and paranormal romance.

So the final reading tally for the year is 242 novels and novellas, of which 204 were new (clearly I got some reading done in the last week or so, some of them 'holiday stories'). I was going to write a single post about my favourites from the year, but I had too much to … Continue reading Reading highlights from 2016 – part 3

(Here's what I read in 2012.) This … Continue reading What I read in 2013
I 'read' something like 30 books in 2012 (as far as I can remember). This isn't a huge total, but it's quite a few more than I suspected.
