2011 Review!

2011 has been a crazy, but good, year. My biggest accomplishment was having another little boy, Levi! He arrived the end of April, and surprisingly I've been able to read more since he was born. My secret? I read while nursing him! Yes, sometimes my toddler is tearing up the house while this happens, but I need ME time, especially while breastfeeding (it's very depleting!).
In 2012 I look forward to reading even more and participating in more challenges. I think I'll choose 1 or 2 in addition to the R.I.P. challenge in the Fall.

Challenges in which I participated:
R.I.P. VI (finished 4 of 4)

My favorites (in the order I read them):
The Poisonwood Bible by: Barbara Kingsolver (Historical Fiction)
Dreams of Joy by: Lisa See (Sisters Pearl and May: Book 2) (Historical Fiction)
A Clash of Kings by: George R.R. Martin (A Song of Ice and Fire: Book 2) (Fantasy)

# of books I read in 2011:
Up from 30 in 2010 and 38 in 2009
Down from 48 in 2008 and 81 in 2007

Least favorite:
Letter Perfect by: Cathy Marie Hake (Christian Fiction, Historical Fiction, Christian Romance)

Repeated authors:
Kelley Armstrong (4) (Women of the Underworld series)
Carrie Ryan (3) (The Forest of Hands and Teeth series)
Lisa See (2) (Sisters Pearl and May series)
Patrick Ness (2) (Chaos Walking Trilogy)
