Books – 2012

In 2011, I managed to read 28 books! Woohoo! That’s just over a book every 2 weeks, which isn’t too bad considering some of the books were massive (Game of Thrones and Outlander series, I’m looking at you) but this year I want to read more! While I think founding a bookclub will help up the numbers this year, the sheer instability of the coming 12 months don’t bode well for reading.. So, without further ado, the official 2012 list:
