2011 Reads

Happy New Years everyone!  
Hope you all had an awesome holiday. It's that time of year again. Time to share books read the year prior.
Last year (2011) I read 28 books.  
In 2009 it was 32. 
In 2008 a total of 30. 

And so on...
I think what happened this year, why I had less novels on my list was I read more of my critique partners' manuscripts. 
Awesome mss btw! Can't wait to see them in print!
Anyway, all the books I've read are also listed on my Goodreads profile. 
Drop by and come connect with me on GOODREADS.

Hmmm...I honestly don't remember most titles, but I liked the three by Kat Martin quite a bit. The Against the... series.

I can't even count the number of books I read some that left an impression were: Poison Study, Matched, Sacred Scars, Fifty Shades of Grey, Devil In Winter, Ransom, Gabriel's Inferno, The Fever Series, The Highlander Series (upto book five) and my favorite book of the year - Outlander! Jesus God, I love Jaime Fraser.

Wow, Mart. Impressive list.
I haven't read as many as you. I need to up my reading in 2012.

I write so much and read my crit partners' work more than published works.

The ones I do remember are
Glee by Patricia Green
Daughter of the Moon I & II by Patrica Green
(Almost everything by Patricia Green really)
The Scandalous Countess by Jo Beverley
That Perfect Someone by Joanna Lindsay
And currently reading Outlander, suggested by Kary Rader, and loving it! Favorite historical I've read this year. :)

I was lucky enough to pick up Stephanie Tyler's SEAL series last year and wow! Awesome books! Now I buy everything she publishes! Also read my fav Cherry Adair and some Suzanne Brockmanns. I plan on reading much more this year than last :) Fun post!

I'm sorry to say that last year I didn't read any novels. I spent my time reading writing and marketing information and attending webinars and such. While this is important, I hope to devote some time this year to reading fiction again.

Impressive list Mart! I honestly can't remember the names of all the books I've read, but I can say that I know it's not as many as I normally read. Like someone else mentioned, I tended to critique a lot of my friends stories and read several books on learning my craft. I do know I read some books in there, some from Catherine Mann, I just finished one by Lynne Marshall and am working very slowly on a few others. I wish I could read more.

As for Goodreads, I signed up for them, now I just need to learn how to use it. SO when I do, I'll be looking you up!

Happy New Year!
