What I read in 2012

What did you read this year? Do you have any reading goals? I'd love to hear them!

...what? A post without a picture?! What is this? I don't know.



  1. I know what you mean! I wanted to read one hundred books last year, or at least fifty. But my final number was a mere twenty-three.

    But I do feel like I have read more than I usually do. :)

  2. A Wolf By The Ears only got 2 stars?! I remember loving that one!! Buuuut it's been at least 10 years since I've read it (*sob*...I'm so old...) so my memory might be failing me...
    And Kisses From Katie is on my list too!!

    1. I read that earlier in 2012 so it's hard to remember! Maybe it should get a higher rating! I just like feel good books and I didn't think it was a feel good book.

      Yay I can't wait to read Kisses From Katie! And I keep adding more books to my 2013 list...Anne of Green Gables series.

  3. I love Roses For Mama :) And Emma is good too :)
    -mal :)

  4. Kisses from Katie is an AWESOME book. I followed her blog (kissesfromkatie.blogspot.com) for a while before she even published her book, so I got it first chance I got. An ispiring story of what can happen when someone gives themselves over to God completely. A friend of mine actually went to see her work in Uganda and was very impressed.
    SO, all that to say that it's a great book!
