My 2012 Reading List

One of my goals for 2012 was to read 36 books (three a month). As of today, I’ve read 29 and am working through three others. As with 2011, I received courtesy copies in exchange for “honest reviews” for many of them. I’ve noted those accordingly.

My favorites (in no particular order):

Those I’m reading now:

Others I read and liked:

 Others I read and liked not quite so much:

  • Beyond the Sun by J.D. Inman. (Kindle. Read for review, but I did not write a review. The story concept is good but needs work, and the number of typographical and grammatical errors frustrated me. I recommended the author correct these errors before circulating further.)
  • Why Nations Fail by Daron Acemoglu. (Kindle).
  • The Azalea Assault by Alyse Carlson. (Print).
  •  The Harbinger by Jonathan Cahn. (Print. Review posted here).
  • Toxic Charity by D. Lupton. (Kindle).
  • Viralsby Kathy Reichs. (Kindle, public library e-loan).
  • Chasing Paris by Jen Carter. (Kindle).
  • Heart of Darkness by Joseph Conrad. (Kindle).

Those I didn’t finish:

  • Kenilworthby Sir Walter Scott. (Kindle). Nothing wrong with it. It was just soooooo long. I imagine it was a great fireside family read in the days before television.
  • The Unlikely Spy by Daniel Silva. (Kindle, public library e-loan). Unnecessary graphic descriptions of immoral sexual behavior that didn’t seem to further the story. More than I could stomach.
As always, I welcome recommendations to add to the 2013 list. 
Travel light … and read well.
