54 books for 2012

Halfway through the year I decided to keep a list of all the books I was reading for 2012 and I’m excited to share them with you now! I did attempt to rate the books, but as I discovered throughout the year, rating with a simple 5 star system is quite unfair so I’ve decided not to include those in the post. I already have a more in depth rating system created for next year including my thoughts on the book from both a reader and a writer’s perspective. I have gone ahead and highlighted the books that I enjoyed the most. Please feel free to ask any questions/email me on any of these books, I would be more than happy to share my thoughts 🙂
