Happy New Reading Year!

Welcome to the glories of 2013, y'all. I'm upbeat about this one - cause why not, right?

Here's the delightful breakdown of my 2012 reading. It's a lot to sort through and there are so many reasons to love so many different things. So here's the deal: if I posted it, I generally loved it (sometimes I was posting about challenges, review works, etc.) But if you threaten to tickle my feet until I name ten books I'd force on anyone, they'd be:
A Land More Kind Than
Home by Wiley Cash
The Sisters Brothers
by Patrick deWitt

Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn

The Fault in our Stars
by John Green

The Orphan Master's Son
by Adam Johnson

The Silence of Trees
by Valya Dudycz Lupescu

(Leaving out anything that was part of a series made this a lot easier, I have to say.)

Whatcha got lined up for 2013's reading? I've got a silly project I'll post about later, plus, well, lots and lots of books. At the moment I'm working my way through the Rooster tournament picks, and filling in various things from other people's 2012 lists, but there will be much more to come, I'm sure.


  1. I am on the Rooster List for sure. Sounds like some great and unconventional reads (for me, anyway). Can't wait for your project. If you think you's is silly, then you haven't seen the list for #36in12.

    As always, you inspire me!

  2. Okay, S, I've posted my silly project! And if your #36in12 is starting with Heyer as I'm guessing from Goodreads, I'm impressed already.

    You should join the Rooster discussion group I'm on in Goodreads. It's a bright group. Since last year's Rooster we've been reading a few potential contenders, and I've got way too many good recommendations from them.
