Cheers to 2012! (And accomplishing a goal!)

Unfortunately I'm not one who is too good at keeping resolutions.

But I'm proud to say I actually accomplished one of my goals. My original goal was to read 25 books this year and as of 11:30am, I have read 26 books!

Here's my list:

1- The Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake
2- The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society

3- Wonderstruck

4- Fame
5- Twelve Clean Pages
6- The Reading Promise
7- Decision Points
8- True Believer 
9- 50 Shades of Grey
10- Shine
11- Crooked Letter, Crooked Letter
12- The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks
13- Faith
14- The Other Woman
15- Into the Darkest Corner
16- Food, Girls and Other Things I Can't Have
17- When She Woke
18- The Book Thief
19- Before I Go To Sleep
20- Little Bee
21- I'd Know You Anywhere
22- What the Dead Know
23- Gone Girl
24- Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter
25- Ape House
26- Dark Places

Dark Places is by Gillian Flynn, the same author who wrote Gone Girl. And let me tell you, Dark Places was way better! (I don't want to ruin it for anyone who hasn't read it so I'll just leave it at that.)

2013 is about to have a lot going on (hello, wedding!) but I'm going to go ahead and make the 25 book goal again! First up is Sharp Objects - once again by Gillian Flynn. (Obviously I'm on a kick.) So here we go!
