The 2012 Book List

Every year I keep track of what I read.  Don't really know why, just do.  I guess I like to look back and see what I've spent all of my free time doing!  This year introduced me to some great new authors:  Jane Green, Elin Hilderbrand, Gillian Flynn.  It also found me perservering through some not-so-great ones...E.L. James, I'm sorry, but I don't understand the big to-do about your Fifty Shades series.  I aslo found myself reading a lot of young adult novels - turns out I liked the Hunger Games so much last year that I was ready to find some similar distopian society literature and I found most of it in the young adult section.  Ally Condie's Matched series wasn't too shabby.  And then there was the nonfiction.  Read quite a bit of that this year (in comparison to past years).  This happened mainly because I started counseling and a women's Bible study group.  Those two things managed to drag me out of the world of fiction and back into reality now and again!'s this year's list....
