Books: What I read, what I didn’t, and what I loved

January 12, 2013

What I Read (and didn’t read) in 2012

Below is the list of books I wanted to read in 2012. I didn’t get through as many as I had hoped since I couldn’t get them through the library. But now that I received a few for Christmas (yes!), I’ll be able to read many of them in early 2013.

Favorites of 2012

I hate picking favorites, so it was tough to narrow it down to this list. Certainly I’ve missed something; so, as always, you’re invited to checkout my Shelfari page for more books and summaries of the ones listed below.
