Intriguing list, and we read about the same number of books. I do mean to post my list one day. We only read 2 of the same books, #28 Guernsey ... and Reading Lolita (excellent books).

wow. You've read so many books this year! This inspires me to keep reading =)

Michelle Davidson Argyle said...

Holy crap you read a lot. Wow. I manage maybe 10 - 15 a year. I'm so lame. Haha.

Terra, Those 2 were great books. It's surprising that we had so little crossover. I read an eclectic mix I guess.

Priya, I think this is a pretty average year for me. I'm trying to make myself read less, so I can write more, but I just love reading so it's hard to stop.

Glam, You're not lame. You've been writing. That's why you have book deals and I'm floundering around editing WIP 1, drafting WIP 2, and outlining WIP 3. I'm going to have to limit myself, but so far that's not working very well. I made myself not read for about a week in early Jan., but I'm still going to have probably 10 books read for the month. Crazy. And one of them was long--over 650 pages.
