I read at least one book per week. I always wanted to write them all down in a year and see how many I actually did read, but I never remember to do that.
Thankfully though, I have a rough estimate now! Thanks to "Manage your Kindle" on Amazon. In Kindle Books alone for 2012 these are the books I read:
The Hunger Games
Catching Fire – Suzanne Collins
Two for the Dough
Three to Get Deadly –
Four to Score – Janet Evanovich
Organized Simplicity -
Legend – Marie Lu
Fifty Shades of Grey
Fifty Shades Darker
Fifty Shades Freed – EL James
The Marriage Bargain – dumb.
Insurgent – Veronica Roth
Fire - Kristin Cashore
Under the Never Sky – Veronica Rossi
The Pledge – Kimberly Derting
The girl of Fire and Thorns – Rae Carson
Into the Shadows
Darkness Rising – Karly Kirkpatrick
Eve – Anna Carey
Secrets Exposed - ?
Last Romanov – Dora Mossanen
Extra Innings – Bruce Spitzer
Song of the Summer King – Jess Owen
Unfurl – Cidney Swanson
Out of Time – Monique Martin
Carrots – Colleen Helme
Shattered – Kailin Gow
Saving Mars – Cidney Swanson
Resurrection – AM Hargrove
Beloved Purgatory – Katherine Pine
Touched – Allegra Skye
Matched – Ally Condie
Thorns – Kate Avery Ellison
ForgottenFever – Kailin Gow
In addition to these books, I re-read classics all the time. Through the Looking Glass, Anna Karenina, As the Waltz was Ending, Treasure Island, etc. And if I like a book, I'll re-read it several times as well. I read the Hunger Games series a few times. I re-read the Fifty Shades trilogy just to see if there was anything different. There wasn't. But my husband didn't mind me re-reading THAT series!
These books don't include the hardbacks I read, and I really did try to keep the ones I read next to my bed, but there was such a pile that I finally just put them in a box. I do remember a few, "Sing Me Home" by Jodi Picoult, the Bible, and The Alchemist.
If you can't tell, I am currently in LOOOOVE with Young Adult Dystopian Novels. I kid you not, I always compare my life growing up at a fish camp to the "outdoorsy" post-apocalyptic era of these books. I'm always thinking, "Oh, I'D SURVIVE..." haha. My favorite has to be Divergent, and Insurgent. I don't know why. But I really liked those two.
Anyway, here's to a great 2013 of reading. (And crafting. baking. sewing.)
What's on your current book list?
P.S. Yes, I bought some of these. BUT... Pixel of Ink (look them up on Facebook) is a great place to grab tons of free books. They offer 3 or 4 free books every day to download onto your kindle. And I'm also an Amazon Prime member, so we get ONE free borrowed book per month. One, hahaha. One book a month. That's encouraging reading... haha.
