You'll notice I read a lot more "normal" books than "paranormal" this year. That was no mistake on my part. In efforts to not be a genre snob, I selected books with normal stories as well to give myself a well rounded view. Most of the "normal" books dragged for me more than the paranormal (excluding the above) but that is probably due to my preference. I also notice I veered away from the "Happy Ever After" cliche books, again, to round my reading tastes.
