Spring Reading Thing 2012: Wrap-up

It was thanks to Callapidder Days seasonal event: Spring Reading Thing 2012 that my hibernating blog woke up on March 31, 2012. I had participated in this event first in 2010 but it was a complete failure. However, this spring was full of joyful reads for me.

My intention was to read 12 books in total and I listed 7 of those books in my participation post.

I am really proud of myself this time as I managed to READ 15 BOOKS from March 20 to June 20. It's a personal record for me. I read 5 out of 7 books I decided to read on March 31 but I also read 10 other books. What makes me even more proud about myself I reviewed each and every book I read for Spring Reading Thing 2012. Here comes the list of what I read this spring:
  1. Crooked House by Agatha Christie
  2. Journey to the Center of the Earth by Jules Verne
  3. Ambrosia Laneti by Mustafa Resul Yalçınkaya (This review is in Turkish)
