50 for the year, isn’t bad. Though, some of these were definitely a bit juvenile, short, etc. My goal for 2013 is 40 REAL books. I’m beginning with The Magicians – Lev Grossman, and Sacre Bleu – Christopher Moore. I also have Shadow & Bone by Leigh Bardugo checked out currently (and a whole collection of unread books at home).

Top Five (in no order):
Water for Elephants
The Night Circus
The Book of Joe
The Host – not as well written as The Help, but I’d want to own this before The Help, which is why it made the top 5.

Honorable Mentions: The Help, A Dirty Job, and The Timekeeper

Worst Five or Most Disappointing (in no order):
The Kill Order
The Void of Mist and Thunder
The Marriage Plot (after all the wonderful things I’ve read/heard about Jeffrey Eugenides, I wasn’t that impressed based on this book. I still plan on reading MiddleSex though).
Arcadia (again, I really truly liked The Monsters of Templeton, but Arcadia was sort of depressing (though well-written), and it hasn’t even really stuck with me in anyway)

Happy New Year – 2013 has some amazing things in store for me already!

Until Next Time,
