End of Year
As 2011 comes to a close, I thought I would share my very favorites reads for the year. I read many books that I really enjoyed but 5 of the books I have read really stood out for me.
The Scrapbook of Frankie Pratt: A Novel in Pictures by Caroline Preston
The Invention of Hugo Cabret by Brian Selznik
Wonderstruck by Brian Selznik
The Bird Sisters by Rebecca Rasmussen
Between Shades of Gray by Ruta Sepetys
It was really hard to narrow my list down to five books. I find I am getting a bit more particular in the books I accept and choose to read. This also means that most of what I read, I really enjoy. I think I had only a few books this year that were misses for me.
As far as this years reading challenges go, I was somewhat successful. I finished the Just for Fun Reading Challenge and I did well on The ARC Reading Challenge. The other challenges we won't mention since I did so terrible at them. Later today, I hope to post start up posts for next years challenges. I have three in mind. Three seems doable!
In 2012, I hope to read more of the books I have on hand, especially since they are starting to pile up everywhere.
I want to wish each and every one of you a safe and prosperous New Year! May the New Year be full of good reads! I know I have some books for next year that I am really excited about reading!
