Books read in 2012

I resolve to blog more in 2013. I know I was a shitty blogger in ’12, and I promise to not let that happen again. In a few days, I have a surprise look back at a piece of 1980’s silliness I love. But for now, enjoy this list of the books I read in ’12. Anything in bold is highly recommended. Anything asterisked means I read it for this blog – even if it didn’t end up making it on the blog because of laziness/busyness.

    I just started The Kid this morning! Glad you recommend it.

  2. All the kids I teach have been raving about The Fault in our Stars, but I just can’t bring myself to read it. Is it horribly depressing? I just don’t know how to get into the right frame of mind for a story about kids I’m pretty certain aren’t going to make it….

      It is a little depressing. But honestly, it’s so well-written that it doesn’t matter. It really is a beautiful book, definitely John Green’s best. (Even better than Looking for Alaska which i loved so hard.)
