Keep reading! That is my goal.

Happy New Year to you all!

I thought it would be fitting to start this new year out with a list of books that I read last year, along with the ones I plan to read this year. If there’s any way to illustrate my eclectic taste in books, I think it’s by making a list.

For those of you looking to find something new to read, I’ll put a ranking (1 to 5, 5 being best) beside each one that I’ve read. You can find my reviews of most of these on Goodreads.

Books I read in 2012:

  • The Language of Flowers by Vanessa Diffenbaugh (5)
  • The Blood Upon the Rose by Tim Vicary (3)
  • I Am Legend by Richard Matheson (3)
  • Shadowfell by Juliet Marillier (5)
  • Touching the Clouds by Boonie Leon (4)
  • Fairest by Gail Carson Levine (5)
  • The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkein (5) – To be fair, I have read this book a couple of times before, but I reread it this year to refresh my memory for the movie.
  • Firecracker by Charles R. Verhey (4)
  • Lost in Italy by Stacey Joy Netzel (3)
  • Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter by Seth Grahame-Smith (5)
  • Gone to Green by Judy Christie (4)

  • Made to Be Broken by Kelley Armstrong (5)

  • Captive Queen: A Novel of Eleanor of Aquitaine by Alison Weir (5)
  • Poison: A Novel of the Renaissance by Sara Poole (4)
  • Deadly Sins (Mindhunters series #6) by Kylie Brant (5)
  • Virals by Kathy Reichs (4)
  • Willow Pond by Carol Tibaldi (2)
  • Mastiff by Tamora Pierce (5)

2013 Reading ChallengeI will be participating in Goodreads 2013 Reading Challenge, where I’m going to try to read 20 books in 2013. Here are some of the books I would like to read this year:

  • Inheritance by Christopher Paolini
  • The Dovekeepers by Alice Hoffman
  • Girl with a Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larsson
  • Ever by Gail Carson Levine
  • The Big Over Easy by Jasper Fforde
  • Deja Dead by Kathy Reichs
  • A Dangerous Inheritance by Alison Weir
  • Thirteen by Kelley Armstrong

Any suggestions for books I should pick up?

I'm a lover of writing and books. I graduated from South Dakota State with a master's degree in communications in 2011, the same year I was first published. I'm a wife and mom, and I work in content and digital marketing in South Dakota.
