Book List for 2012

It’s time for a new book list for a new year!  Here are my picks for the year!  Let me know if you’ve read any of these and what you thought about it!  I’m super flexible and if I come across something that appears more interesting then I may swap it out!

  2. Unbroken is one of the BEST books I’ve ever, ever read. I’m on the hunt for a book I put on my wish list while I was reading Unbroken but it got deleted!!! I can vaguely remember what the title was called but dammit I can’t find it anywhere. Thanks for your list!! I’ve been planning on making my own!
