I've set a goal, read 12 books in 2012. Now I know compared to the 50 book pledge, my goal may seem, well...lame. But I think I read a half a dozen adult books in 2011, a book a week is just entirely too arduous to even consider. A book a month is much more my style.I'm open to suggestions. If you've read a book you think I just have to read, leave it in the comments.Here goes nothing. First up...
1. Seriously...I'm kidding - Ellen Degeneres
That was easy, first book done and it's still January. So technically, I'm ahead of schedule.For my next few book selections, I think I need to read the books sitting on my bedside table. I wanted to read them, started them, and either couldn't get past the first few chapters or took a reading hiatus. Regardless, it's time I properly get them off the table. So without further ado...
2. Me Talk Pretty One Day - David Sedaris
Update 2/11...This book is failing to capture my attention. I loved When You Are Engulfed in Flames, so I do not blame the author. I almost abandoned it completely but decided I would not allow myself. I wrote it in this list, so by golly, I will press on.
2/29...Finally finished. Good thing it was a leap year.
3. Room - Emma Donoghue
3/8...Wow. Seriously. Wow. Very good read.
4. The Hunger Games - Suzanne Collins
3/19 to 3/21...Did nothing that wasn't essential until I finished it. Very addictive.
5. Catching Fire - Suzanne Collins
3/24...Even my dreams are about The Games at this point.
6. Mockingjay - Suzanne Collins
3/28...As much as I loved it, I'm quite relieved that my preoccupation with the trilogy has come to an end. As is my husband.
7. Fifty Shades of Grey - E L James
3/30 to 4/2...I'm an erotic fiction virgin, this is my first.
8. Fifty Shades Darker - E L James
4/12...I didn't love that the plot of the first book left me dying to keep reading, as is the purpose of trilogies. Frankly, I was tired of reading mommy porn. But wanting to discover more, I read the second book. Great read, for glorified porn.
9. Fifty Shades Freed - E L James
4/26...Done. I hope my libido doesn't crash from the lack of erotica in my next book.
10. Bared to You: A Crossfire Novel - Sylvia Day
6/13...Sadly, I tried to read non-erotica and just couldn't do it. I'll try again soon. Meanwhile, I very much enjoyed this token of glorified porn.
