December Recap and January TBR

I can't believe that 2012 is over already. I read a lot of really good books this year, quite a few mediocre books, and a few duds. I won't name any DNF's that I shelved. I think there were 5 or 6 DNFs this year, and I have decided that there are way too many good books out there to waste my precious time reading anything that I am not enjoying.

Books Read in December:
How My Summer Went Up in Flames by Jennifer Salvato Doktorski
The Story of Us by Deb Caletti
Let it Snow by John Green, Maureen Johnson, Lauren Myracle
Make it Last (Friends & Lovers #1) by Bethany Lopez
Meant to Be by Lauren Morrill

Total pages read: 1550

I totally rocked my Goodreads Challenge. My goal was 75 books, and I managed to read 86 books. So YAY for me. Sadly, I need to catch up on my reviews. I am way behind!

There are so many books that I am looking forward to reading in 2013 - my tbr grows daily. I also want to finish reading my 2012 tbr list. And I have a whole bunch of ARCs that I can't wait to dive into.

Have A Wonderful New Year!

Top Ten of 2012 - Best Book Boyfriends


Today is Day 4 of this event that is co-hosted by Confessions of a Bookaholic, A Life Bound By Books, Fiktshun, Two Chicks On Books, and Magical Urban Fantasy Reads.

Today's topic is Best Book Boyfriends of 2012. I have to tread carefully here because my own son is 18, so me having a crush on any of these fictional boys is just yucky. But I can appreciate them from a distance, and still enjoy them for what they are - fictional distractions.
