Books Read In 2012

I don’t keep track of the books I read as obsessively as I do with the movies I watch. These are all the books I can remember reading in 2012 (although I think some may have been end of 2011). It’s a pretty pathetic list – my goal is to read more in 2013 but it’ll still always come after all my movie-watching. πŸ™‚ Think I’ll set a goal of 20 books…

Anyone have any recommendations based on the list below? I have to admit I’m really enjoying young adult fiction these days as it seems to be getting better & better. When did that happen? The young adult fiction these days certainly beats what was available to me in the 80s when I was reading Christopher Pike, Sweet Valley High & Judy Blume! (But, hey- they were awesome at the time) πŸ˜‰

From favorite to least favorite:

    • Thanks for the suggestion – looked it up and it sounds pretty good! Sister wasn’t GREAT but it was okay. Have you read Her Fearful Symmetry by Audrey Niffenegger? That’s about twins. Don’t know if I’m recommending it, though… It was very strange. The Time Traveler’s Wife was much better. And speaking of twins, I always think of The Shining twins. Those twins are cool… πŸ˜‰

    • Yeah, I thought 11/22/63 was excellent (but probably could have been half as long – I felt it took a long time for the story to really get going). Thanks for the suggestions – not heard of those but they sound interesting. Especially the AJ Jacobs ones. πŸ™‚

  1. It’s probably a little too early for me to recommend it (I’m only on page 60 or so) but if you like Zombies and Young Adult Fiction, I’ve been reading “Breathers” by S. G. Browne, and it’s been a pretty good take on the idea of sentient zombies, so far. It’s been lighthearted and fun to read.

    Another lighthearted undead novel about Vampires, “Bloodsucking Fiends” by Christopher Moore is definitely worth checking out. I picked it up on a whim a few years back (like, before the Twilight Boom years back), and really enjoyed it.

    Also, in YA Fiction, I’d recommend the Beyonders series. It’s YA Fantasy, with a boy and girl from our world falling into a fantasy one with an evil emperor, but it was surprisingly good.

    Not a book, but if you’re having trouble keeping track of what you read, I highly recommend signing up at You can add and keep track of whatever your reading, rate it, add tags, and write reviews.

    • Wow – thanks for all the suggestions! πŸ™‚ I’ll check some of those out. And, yes, I love zombies! I’ve started using Goodreads recently so I can keep better track of what I read this year as I’m hoping to read more. πŸ™‚
