My 2011 Book List

So for the first time I decided to keep track of which books I read over the course of this year. I will admit that I wish this list was a lot longer but moving twice within a year and starting a new, very hectic job changed a lot of my plans.

1. The Island-Elin Hilderbrand
2. A Letter to my Daughter- George Bishop

3. A Summer Affair- Elin Hilderbrand
4.Firefly Lane- Kristin Hannah
5. True Colors- Kristin Hannah
6. Heart of the Matter- Emily Griffin
7. Sing you Home- Jodi Picoult
8. Something Borrowed- Emily Griffin
9. Love the One you're with- Emily Griffin
10. Reconstructing Natatlie- Laura Jensen Walker

11. Baby Proof- Emily Griffin
12. Something Blue- Emily Griffin
13. The Help- Kathryn Stockett
14. The Happiness Project- Gretchen Rubin
15. The Vow- Kim & Krickitt Carpenter (movie coming soon!!)
16. The Christmas Promise- Donna Van Liere

I will say I enjoyed each one of these books. I am so ready for Emily Griffin's new one that I think comes out in spring. Also, trying to get my hands on the new Nicholas Sparks book as he is a favorite of mine.

I have decided I am going to make a list each year of the books I read just for my own record. I think 16 books in one year is ok but would like to see it grow much higher. If you have any books to add to my reading list for 2012 let me know!

  1. When Liz's mother smacks her across the face she runs away from home. Her mother is prompted to revisit her own relationship with her parents when she was Liz's age, resulting in a journey down old roads and scars. Bishop writes with the heart and perception of a young girl. While Liz is missing her mother decides to write about what it was like to be Liz's age, revealing a heart wrenching secret. Letter to My Daughter is a beautiful story about courage and love.
