  1. I love this meme as it’s such a perfect way to look back on our first six months of the year. You’ve read a great variety of books and a good mixture of new authors and old favourites. 🙂

  2. I love this and will definitely have to give it a whirl. I think I particularly like that the focus isn’t on your best books so far but different aspects of your reading

    1. Lynn, I would love to see your choices for this meme 😀 There is a master list of categories used before on Jo’s blog The Book Jotter, although you can up with your own as well. Previously I have used the best books and disappointing books categories, but I prefer to focus on the positive now 🙂
