2012 Reading List

In 2012 I am starting to focus on my 40 by 40 list, 40 things I want to accomplish by the time I am 40 years old. One of those things is to read 500 books, so 100 books a year for the next 5 years. I think that is totally doable! Another thing on the list is to read all the books I should have read in high school (To Kill a Mockingbird, Catcher in the Rye, Of Mice and Men...) but didn't because I was home-schooled and we didn't have the normal required reading of secular high schools. So I thought I would start off the year with a few of the books on the my reading list for the beginning of the year.

I'm hoping to get through all of these in January and February! I know, it's a big list and that's a lot of reading, but I'm looking forward to spending more time reading and getting lost in a really great book more often. It is something I have missed. I really want reading to be something that my daughter will fall in love with as I have and that she will forever love books. What are some of your favorite books? What's on your reading list for the new year?


  1. I wanna read the host.
    I'm finishing up the last House of night book now and then going to Blue Bloods.( I read the 1st already.) then maybe onto the host.

  2. I just finished The Help. It was good but took me a really long time to read it. I have the last books in both The Hunger Games and The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo to finish so those will the first ones I read in 2012.

  3. The Hunger Games trilogy is sooo good! I plan on re-reading them before the movie comes out!
    The Help was good, but I almost wish I would have read it before all the hype... :S
    The Host is on my list too!

  4. I read The Help and LOVE it, but I have yet to see the movie. I am going to start The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo series next.

  5. The Host is such a good book! I probably need to read less and do other things instead but I love a good book!

  6. You will LOVE The Hunger Games series. In fact, you should just get them all at once because you'll want to go right from the other. Just sayin'. :) You'll have no problems speeding through them.
