2012 in Review

Total Books Read: 60 (That's 22 less than last year and 53 less than the year before. Wow.)

One thing I did this year was try to clear my TBR shelf of books that had been there since 2008. There were quite a few DNF, but I chose not to record those. I got through 24 of the 28 books. In 2013, my goal is to finish the final four from 2008 and read 18 books on my TBR from 2009.

My top 10 favorite were:
  1. The Ditchdigger's Daughters
  2. Divergent
  3. The Scorpio Races
  4. Pandemonium
  5. Heaven is Here
  6. The Limpopo Academy of Private Detection
  7. Daddy-Long-Legs
  8. Mockingbird
  9. Baking Cakes in Kigali
  10. The Chosen
5 star: 8
4 star: 33
3 star: 14
2 star: 4
Unrated: 1 (just couldn't rate Code Name Verity)

Of the books I read:
Books I purchased: 18
