I didn’t set any specific goals for reading this year like I usually do, but reading is still one of my favorite things to do. I usually find that I’m either watching a lot of television (or television on DVD) or reading a lot of books. But I’m never doing both. I’m an “all or nothing” kind of gal.
I read about 16 books in 2012, and a good chunk of that was the Twilight saga. (Sorry, not sorry.) If you’re not on Goodreads, you should jump on board and you can follow me there. I love finding book recommendations from friends via Goodreads. And it’s a great way for me to look back and remember what I read.
This week, I’ll post the books I read in 2012 with some small reviews, but I’d like to regularly post reviews of the books I read in 2013. I think it will help hold me accountable for reading the books I’ve purchased.
For 2013, I plan to read the books I’ve purchased but haven’t read yet, and add others to the list as I hear about them and as friends recommend them.
So far on my list, I have the following books:
The Expats by Chris Pavone
The Twelve Tribes of Hattie by Ayana Mathis
The Good House by Ann Leary
Grace: A Memoir by Grace Coddington
Sparkly Green Earrings by Melanie Shankle
The Secret Keeper by Kate Morton
Home Front by Kristin Hannah
American Wife by Curtis Sittenfeld (This book has been on my “to read” list for the past three years. Eep! Maybe I’ll get it done in 2013)
Sarah’s Key by Tatiana de Rosnay
The Memory Keeper’s Daughter by Kim Edwards
I also plan to read Sophie Hudson’s new book, the Paris Wife, the new installment in the Divergent trilogy, and Nora Roberts’ Inn Boonsboro series.
As you can see, my taste in books is a little eclectic. I like some teen fiction, I like plain old fiction, I like great non-fiction and biographies – as long as I’m already interested in the subject.
What books do you plan to read in 2013? I’d love for you to leave suggestions for me and for others, too.
