2012 Reading: Update

June 30, 2012

Update: June 2012

We’re halfway through 2012 (!!), so here’s an update on my must-read list. I’ve crossed off the ones I’ve read, and italicized those I’ve started or am currently reading.

I didn’t realize how many of these books I have read already, but there are so many others I haven’t gotten to yet. It’s been hard to get my hands on some, but hopefully I’ll come across copies soon.

Some of those titles (and many others not on this list) will show up on my “favorites” list at the end of the year; others will not.

As always, check out my Shelfari page to see what else has been on my nightstand in 2012. And if you’re a bookworm, please join me on Shelfari so I can add some of your books to my shelf. Happy reading!
