Books of 2012

Unfortunately, having a new babies isn't as conductive to laying around reading as one would like. Looking at the list all laid out it's about half of what I typically read in a year. Not nearly as much as I wanted/needed.

But without further ado here is my measly 2012 list (highlighted are a couple of my favs):

1. Silence
2.  Anna Dressed in Blood
3. Crossed
4. The Name of the Star
5. Delirium
6. The Eternal Kiss
7. The Truth about Forever
8. An Abundance of Katherines
9. Peeled
10.  Chime
11. Pandemonium
12. The Scorpio Races
13. Variant
14. City of Lost Souls
15. The Great Gatsby
16. The Golden Lily
17. The Raven Boys
18. Magic Study
19. Girl of Nightmares
20. How Georgia Became O'Keeffe
21. Black Heart
22. A Discovery of Witches
23. The Fault in Our Stars (this one deserves its own blog post)
24. The Night Circus
25. The Maze Runner
26. The Scorch Trials
27. The Hero of Ages
28. Desires of the Dead
29. Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter
30. The Guerrilla Girls': A History of Western Art
31. I Am Number Four
32. Team of Rivals: The Political Genius of Abraham Lincoln

I am reading Raven Boys right now and having a hard time putting it down - even it spooks me late at night.

Three books each month is most impressive. Two favorites from the past year, one fiction and one non-fiction: "But is it Art?) by Cynthia Freeland, which I have been meaning to read for the last few years and finally did; "Nine Stories," by J.D. Salinger. I read it as a freshman in college and still have the paperback I bought used (new, it was 75 cents). It's stained, warped, and the pages are nearly brown from age but the stories remain amazingly fresh even though some were published as early as 1948, before I was born.
