I’m Going To Read in 2013!

I love having reading goals. It makes my time spent reading seem productive. And let’s face it, I’m going to spend time reading. It is inevitable. Might as well make myself feel a little better about it. This year, my reading goal is the same as last year. 52 books in the year. I think it was a good goal. Honestly, it may be a bit much for this year because I have big plans this year. But I’m going to try!

I also made a reading list last year. And while I did not complete the list, it was a great list to have. So, when I wanted to do some leisure reading and needed a new book, I can look at the list and choose something quickly. Saved me tons of time not pouring over Amazon and Goodreads recommendations every time I needed a new book. So, I decided to make a list again this year! I brought over some of the books on last year’s list that I didn’t get around to. I added some more that I want to read. And now I have a list again!

2012 Reading

You may remember that my reading goal for 2012 was to read 52 books. I also made a list of the 25 books I wanted to make sure I read this year. I’m gonna tell you, I did reach my ultimate goal (well, passed it) but I did not get around to all 25 books. However the list did help me in deciding what to read next throughout the year. I didn’t have to look up my Amazon or Goodreads recommendations every time I went to order new books. I had a list! For 2013 I am making the same goal and making a list, even if I didn’t get around to all on my list this year. Here are the books I read this year. (Reviews on all the unreviewed books will come this week. I’ll try to come back and link them for you.) All photos are links to take you directly to where you can buy the book. Also, I didn’t necessarily like every book I read this year. You’ll have to check the reviews to see my thoughts.

2011 Reading

I didn’t read quite as much this year as I usually do. Bummer. I blame having a newborn. It looks longer than it is. Some were re-reads. Some are pregnancy books. Some are cookbooks. Some were for Amazon. Some were for Booksneeze.

My official goal for 2012 is 30 books. Low, I know. Maybe I’ll read more. But I’m at least hitting 30.
