First of all, I want to wish all of my followers a Happy New Year. You will never know how much you mean to me. Just the idea that someone cares about my opinion and trusts my judgement when it comes to books is enough to send me over the edge. I know that I have been kind of sporadic when it comes to posting lately, and I apologize for that, but I have had so much going on and it’s hard to keep up! I promised you guys awhile back that I would keep you updated about what was going on in my life and let you in on the state of my reading and that’s what I intend to do here. I haven’t done one of these posts in awhile, so here goes.
I just finished reading Getting Over Garrett Delaney. I liked it, but I didn’t love it. I have not written a review for that yet, but it should be coming soon. Like tomorrow. Maybe.
I am currently reading The Disenchantments by Nina LaCour. I am enjoying this one a lot. It should get at least a 4 star review from me unless something insane happens. I’m also reading Dirty Blood by Heather Hildenbrand. I’m also liking this one a lot. Actually way more than I thought I would. I didn’t think I would hate it or anything, but I’m not really a fan of werewolf stories.
After I finish those, I will be starting Inside Scientology: The Story of America’s Most Secretive Religion. Why? Because I have heard great things about this book and I always have had an interest in learning about Scientology. But that is a topic for another blog. I also plan on starting The Edumacation of Jay Baker at the same time. I try to read two books at once and most of the time that is what works for me. That book is my first official challenge book. I’ll be reading it for the 2012 Debut Author Challenge hosted by The Story Siren.
And finally, after that I will be reading City of Hell Chronicles Vol. 1 by various authors and New Girl by Paige Harbison. When I am done with all of those then I will regroup and choose my next six books.
I thought I would end with a little fun tidbit for you about my 2011 reading. The first book I read in 2011 was Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen. The last book was Getting Over Garrett Delaney which I talked about at the beginning of this post. And I know it doesn’t really matter, but I just thought it was a really fun contrast. I guess my reading tastes really are across the board.
I am also working on a really fun editing project right now. I can’t talk about it, but it’s a book that I think a lot of people are looking forward to. So there is a lot of pressure on the author and I to make this great. Better than great, actually.
HAPPY NEW YEAR to all of you and I promise to do one of these types of posts for every 6 books I read in 2012. That way you can see what I am up to. I guess you can call that my 2012 New Year’s book blogger resolution.
