Happy New Year! Happy Reading Year!

Standard

Happy New Year! I hope you all had a fabulous holiday break full of family, fun, food, and….books! (Okay, so I lost the alliteration there.) I promise to share great books and interviews with you all year long – and I hope you will share your favorite reads with me, here, too!

Before I officially start 2012’s posts, I want to share my 2011 reads. I didn’t read nearly as many books as I’d hoped to, but at least what I read was outstanding and entertaining!  Below you’ll find my reading list (which is usually posted all year long on the right sidebar – where you’ll now find my 2012 reading list in progress). Unless otherwise stated, these books are middle grade and young adult fiction. I did read nonfiction, too, but kept those on a separate list. Not sure why.  I look forward to talking books with all of you!

  1. Oooo thanks for the list – I’m jotting down the ones I missed! Need to give up sleep, obviously.

    And I sooo want to butt in on tea with you and Sharry!

  2. What a great list! How did you like the Tea Rose? I have that one in my pile. Also have the Percy Jackson series, which I look forward to getting into this year.

    • Thanks for stopping by! 🙂 I’m enjoying Donnelly’s Rose series. They are definitely books meant for adults (as opposed to kids). I’m midway through The Winter Rose and do NOT want to put it down! The Tea Rose was very good. The Winter Rose even better!

      I also loved the Percy Jackson series! Fun stuff! Already impatient for the next in the Lost Hero series!
