Books Read in 2012

The Kindle Fire made it easier to reach my goal. With this fantastic little buddy, I could take a bunch of my books with me. Most of the books I read in 2012 were physical books, but I’m still a big fan of the digital ones.

I gave myself a goal of reading 25 books in 2012. I surpassed that goal and, as of December 31, I have read 37 books. I’m quite proud of this accomplishment. Here are the books I read (in sort-of-alphabetical order so series are kept together) this year, along with reviews for some of them.

I’ve set myself another goal for 2013. Fifty books. With the kid and I reading so much before bed, I figure I’ll be able to get out quite a few more. And just because it’s totally awesome, Harry Potter will be on this year’s list too. Because T is finally telling me he’s ready to read the books. YES!

    If you like mystery/suspense, you could try the Kinsey Millhone-alphabet series by Sue Grafton. I read them this year and they were good, but quick, reads.

    I also really enjoyed Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter.

    Wild by Cheryl Strayed, followed closely by Everything Beautiful Began After by Simon van Booy, followed third by The Book Thief (which I firmly believe should be required reading – it’s a whole different take on the Holocaust and WW2).

    Great list! My favorite book was “The Round House” by Louise Erdrich. Incredibly good writing, but a contemporary plot.

    Congrats! And I love your goal for next year! I’m in! I’ve read a few of yours. Lately I’ve read Gillian Flynn and Ian McEwan. I agree with the letter series by Grafton. Saw your link on twitter and when I see books, I’m sucked right in.

      Anything about books gets me excited too. Thanks for your suggestions, I’m putting Grafton on the list and I’ll check out the others too. 🙂
