Books for 2012 – January 23, 2012

So here’s an update on my 2012 reading.

1. Water for Elephants – Sara Gruen
2. The Death Cure – James Dashner
3. Modelland – Tyra Banks
4. Fight Club – Chuck Palahnuik

In progress : Every Boy’s Got One – Meg Cabot.

Also checked out from the library, Shiver – Maggie Stiefvater, Anansi Boys – Neil Gaiman, and Pym – Mat Johnson.

I’m also hoping to finish Brisngr – Christopher Paulolini, and start Inheritance (also by Christopher Paulolini) soon.

Other 2012 books I’m hoping to read include Sara Gruen’s Riding Lessons, and Flying Changes, Philip Pullman – His Dark Materials (trilogy), Elizabeth Kostova – The Historian, and The Great Typo Hunt: Two Friends Changing the World, One Correction at a Time by Jeff Deck and Benjamin D. Herson.

I unfortunately keep getting new books from the library and I’m not reading the ones I have at home. Oh well.

Until next time

  1. I “read” Anansi boys earlier this year. By that I mean that I listened to the unabridged version of it in my car. Nonetheless, I enjoyed it a lot. I have become a real fan of Neil Gaiman this year. I really liked American Gods and The Graveyard Book by him. He also wrote Stardust (that surprisingly good movie), so that is on my list for the year. Let me know what you think of Anansi boys.

    I have Scorch Trials checked out right now. So much to read!!!

    • So far, Anansi Boys is going slow, but now that I’ve met the brother, I think it will pick up.

      I have never said this, but I read Stardust last fall. It’s the only time I’ve ever thought the movie was better than the book. It had better character development and you just cared about the characters more in the movie.

      Decent book, but I love that movie. I haven’t read American Gods of The Graveyard Book
