Hard to believe it’s December 21 already and time to write my Fall Into Reading 2012 Challenge Wrap-up!
Back on September 21, I set a challenge to read 8 books which would finish out my 2012 Reading Challenge on GoodReads as well. In October I didn’t think I had much luck meeting the goal because of NaNo. But I not only met the goal, I exceeded it by reading 14 books.
Looking over the 8 books I thought I’d read over the three months, the only one in common with this list is Cinder.
Four of the books I read over Thanksgiving weekend. FOUR. And once I started Josh Lanyon’s Adrien English series, I couldn’t stop until I finished all five. Ethan, Who Loved Carter I read in a single night. Once I started I couldn’t seem to stop.
Of these 14 books, my favorite was The Dark Tide, largely because it was the last one in a 5-book series and I was very happy with how it ended. 😉 It’s a mystery series, and I’ve never really read mystery before. I know why now…I’m not all that fond of it as a genre. The characters in the books, however, had me captivated from book 1, page 1. I am looking forward to reading more of Josh Lanyon’s books, perhaps even the mysteries because I love the way he writes characters.
In January I’ll do a full wrap up of all 56 (and counting??) books I read in 2012.
