I read some books in December!
For the rest of my reads from 2012, visit my cleverly-named 2012 Books page.
I’ve gotta admit: I’m a little disappointed that I only read 74 books. Considering my goal for the year was 25, it’s ridiculous. But 75 would have been much better. (I’m crazy, yes. Why do you ask?)
74. The Mysterious Benedict Society and the Prisoners’ Dilemma by Trenton Lee Stewart. The third in the series. This was a good book! I adore thia series. Mostly I read children’s chapter books in anticipation of the days when Eriana and I can read books like this together. Screening, if you will.
73. Mrs. Queen Takes the Train by William Kuhn. You guys. This book is such a great read. It’s interesting and makes you wonder and makes you laugh and makes you say, “Aw!” and is just great. Four stars out of five. (Five being reserved for books like Harry Potter.)
72. Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Slayer by Seth Grahame-Smith. Meh. It was a good book, but not the greatest ever. The movie SUCKED, though.
71. Trapeze by Simon Mawer. I adored this book. Until the end. What the crap?
70. James Potter and the Hall of Elders’ Crossing by G. Norman Lippert. This is a fan fiction book about Harry Potter’s oldest son, and starts the year James begins Hogwarts. Several old characters are in it, and the author is no JK Rowling, but it’s excellent. There are three books in the series (so far?).
69. The Dreaming Place by Charles de Lint. The second in the Newford series. I loved it. LOVED it.
68. The Chaperone by Laura Moriarity. I really liked this book! I did a lot of Googling about Louise Brooks while reading it. I didn’t go into this book thinking I’d like it, because I thought it was by Liane Moriarty, and I didn’t so much like What Alice Forgot. But it’s not Liane! It’s Laura! And a good book.
