Wrap Up:

I had lots of fun with the Clean Sweep Arc Challenge, so I'd like to thank Kimba & Angela for hosting it, I made a tiny dent in my NetGalley pile. Also, I'd like to thank all the challenge hosts, they were lots of fun. I didn't do all of them, but I did 5 or 8, so that's a success for me ;) Also, I joined the twitter party, which was lots of fun as well. As for what I read, the list of the books I read can be seen above, along with the links to my reviews. I updated it as I read & reviewed the books, but I also decided to post the covers of all the reads below, so here they are:
Wow, I had not realised how much contemporary romance I've been reading lately. I guess that's why I've been feeling the need to read some speculative fiction, even thinking about starting one of those chunky epic/high fantasy books. Anyway, not all of these books were good or great, but there were a few gems, and I'm happy that I did so well!

One big THANK YOU to Kimba & Angie again for hosting!
