The new year is almost here. Why not start it off with a book list?
This list includes books that I read this past year and that impressed me in some way. There were others that I loved for different reasons, but for whatever reason, I did not include them here. It’s funny what ends up on your list after you’ve had a year to think about it. The real surprise here? The short story collection and that a memoir made the list.
Here’s my list in no particular order:
Life Itself by Roger
Sweet Tooth by Ian McEwan
Night Film by Marisha Pessl
After Her by Joyce Maynard
Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk by Ben Fountain
The Art of Fielding by Chad Harbach
This Cake is For the Party by Sarah Selecky
Panorama City by Antoine Wilson
The Light Between Oceans by M.L. Stedman
Sputnik Sweetheart by Haruki Murakami
The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle by Haruki Murakami
The Interestings by Meg Wolitzer
Happy New Year to you all. Here’s to another year of reading!

No big plans for break but what IS on the list, is a small road trip and hopefully lots of reading. Here’s what’s in my bag:
The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle by Haruki Murakami (use the hashtag #winditup2013 for more info on the read-along).
More Than You Know by Nan Rossiter
When She Was Gone by Gwendolen Gross
The Dinner by Herman Koch
The Autobiography of Us by Aria Beth Sloss
Panorama City by Antoine Wilson
Don’t think it will all get read but a girl has to have options. What will you be reading this weekend?

I had an incredibly busy Sunday so instead of boring you with the details, I’ll share my Christmas wish list instead. What do you think I want for Christmas? Well, books of course! Hardback, paperback, e-book, I don’t discriminate.
There are others. Yes, there are always others but it’s late, and I’m tired so my list is short. I don’t think there is anything quite as perfect as a book for Christmas but I never seem to get any.
Hope you all had nice weekends. Southern California is having a little bit of a rain storm right now. Everyone has gone to bed and here I am typing and listening to the rain outside. It’s the first bit of quiet I’ve had all day. I’m tempted to sit here and enjoy it a bit but I know I will be wiped out at work tomorrow if I do. So, off to bed I go. Good night (or Good Morning) depending on when you read this.

I am usually pretty good at pacing my reading to include a couple of review copies, along with a book or two that I am reading just for fun. However, due to the generosity of several bloggers and publishers, I have a nice, healthy stack of books that I must get to within the next couple of weeks. I know that this causes stress for some bloggers but these are all books that I am dying to read so I am anxious, but in a good way.
So, in an attempt to organize my chaotic self, here’s a quick list of what I will be reading over the next few weeks in no particular order:
The Glass Room by Simon Mawer
Let The Great World Spin by Colum McCann
Keeper by Kathi Appelt
The Passage by Justin Cronin
Legend of a Suicide by David Vann
The Secret Lives of People in Love by Simon Van Booy
First They Killed My Father by Loung Ung
Trackers by Patrick Carman
The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest by Stieg Larsson
A Week in December by Sebastian Faulks
Black Hills by Dan Simmons
Well, enough with the list, off I go to put a dent in it.

In honor of Banned Books Week, I’d like to take a moment to list some of my favorite books. I read them and immediately fell in love with them. Many of them were read when I was in college but I re-read them whenever I can and they all have a permanent home on my bookshelf.
I realize that some of these were challenged, as opposed to ‘banned’ but you get the idea. When they are old enough, I hope my kids enjoy them as much as I do.
