Today I came across a post where someone was listing out their favorite books of 2012. A lot of them looked interesting and I put them in my goodreads account so I can remember them. As I look back at my books read in 2012, turns out I didn’t read that much! Wonder why? I guess I was a little busy, moving to a foreign country and learning another language and all! Ha!
Click here you can find a list of my read and to-read books on Goodreads.
In the spring I read 7: An Experimental Mutiny Against Excess by Jen Hatmaker and it was really good. Very entertaining too, as it was written like a journal as she goes throughout her experiment, so it was funny!
At the beginning of 2012, I read The Proper Care and Feeding of Husbands, which I thought was really good.
I finally read Three Cups of Tea: One Man’s Mission to Promote Peace… One School at a Time this year, but recently heard its all not true, so that’s too bad.
I reread a bunch of things like the The Complete Anne of Green Gables Set , Mansfield Park, and the When Calls the Heart series. If you have only read Anne of Green Gables, you need to read the whole thing, which is like 8 books or so throughout her whole life. They are all great. Especially the ones where she is at college and after she has kids.
I am always on the lookout for good book suggestions. I know some of you followers are big readers (Lindsey and mab, I’m talking to you) so I am hosting my first every linky party all about your favorite read of 2012. (If you read this in a reader or email, you will have to click over to the real blog website to see this probably.)
Don’t know what a linky party is? It is just where you write a blog post on your blog (if you have one) about the same topic (this topic is your favorite book(s) you read in 2012) and then you come back here and put your link in the little box below. It gathers everyone’s blog posts about the same topic and then we can read each other’s good book suggestions! Sounds like fun, right?
So what are you waiting for? Yes its New Year’s Eve, but if you are like me and have a little one, you are just going to be at home tonight anyway, right!? Go write your own blog post about it and link up to mine! Let’s all share good books we have enjoyed this year!!
