Another year of meeting my Read-50-books goal, with a total of 55 in 2012! My fave books are asterisked, though my single favorite book of the year was “The Fault in Our Stars” by John Green. “Lover’s Dictionary” by David Levithan was a close second favorite.

  2. I loved Elsewhere! I am dying to read The Fault in Our Stars and Lover’s Dictionary, so I’m glad to hear that both were good books. I am also hoping to read Atonement and Will Grayson soon – how did you like them?

    Hope all is well with you 🙂 I fell short of my reading goals in 2012 but happy to be trying again this year!

  3. Hey Val! I loved “Will Grayson, Will Grayson”; John Green and David Levithan definitely need to write more together. I did not enjoy “Atonement” at all… I’m curious to see what you think though! Happy reading in 2013!
