To my dismay, I didn't get a chance to read as much as I would have liked this year. I hope to catch up in the next few months. I just ordered like 10 awesome books from my library, and I am in the middle of a pretty fantastic read right now (In the Kingdom of Men by Kim Barnes). While my test readers take a look at Queen of Hearts, I can take a look at some fantastic books.
I'm so ready to lose myself in a fantastic yarn.(When my friend Karen says this, she means LITERAL yarn. I do not mean it that way.)
So...here is your listening and reading guide for all those things that immersed and impressed in 2012. I've reviewed all these books other places in the blog, so I'll just let the pictures do the talking here.
Download, borrow, buy these things. Steal them if you have to. (Do not steal them.)
