"All I Can do is Read a Book to Stay Awake..."

"...and it rips my life away but it's a great escape. Escape. Esca-a-aaape." -Blind Melon

Last year I challenged myself to read 50 books on Goodreads.com, and then I gave birth in October and finished the year at 42.  Ugh. I am so bummed I failed!  Well what can you do?  I have two kids.

So this year I set my 2012 challenge to 25... and I am already 2 books (10%) behind on my goal.  Blerg. (yeah I've been watching a lot of 30 Rock while the boys nap lately and I'm quoting Lemon...I should probably be reading).

So I need to get serious...set a game plan.  Here we go.  In 2012 I plan to read:

  1. Don Quixote - Cervantes
  2. Before I Go To Sleep - SJ Watson
  3. The Flight of Gemma Hardy - Magot Livesey
  4. The Rebel Wife - Taylor Polites
  5. The Snow Child - Eowyn Ivey
  6. A Grown-up Kind of Pretty - Joshilyn Jackson
  7. Gypsy Boy - Mikey Walsh
  8. The Flame Alphabet - Ben Marcus
  9. Deadlocked - Charlaine Harris
  10. Inkspell - Cornelia Funke
  11. The Child Thief - Brom
  12. Peter Pan - JM Barrie
  13. Wuthering Heigths - Emily Bronte
This list is a work in progress, but I think this is a good place to start.
