I can't believe I read 57 books this past year! Wow! For 2012, I got in touch with my inner teenager with various vampire-type books, finally read the books that one of my favorite shows True Blood is based upon (Sookie Stackhouse), read the series that was most talked about this year (Fifty) and have no idea why I keep reading the series (Sorry, Ladies, but the writing was atrocious!) If you agree the most hilarious review ever can be viewed here.)), put off reading a series (The Hunger Games) because I thought it would be too brutal towards children and ended up devouring it (The 1st book a week before the movie came out and the 2nd and 3rd book the following weekend.), had my world turned upside down by the violence towards women in Half the Sky, and saw the world though a pup's eyes.
