Books read in 2012 (incomplete)

 In the past I've kept lists of the books (novels) I've read and then posted them online at the end of the year. I wasn't very consistent with keeping track this year so this list isn't complete, but here are most of the books I read this year. If I counted correctly, there are 52 books on this list, averaging only one per week. In past years I've read nearly 3 times this many, but things have gotten in the way this year it seems. Well, one per week ain't too shabby, is it?

I have Matched on hold at the to hear your review. Actually, I would love to hear quite a few reviews!

I didn't really love Matched. It was OK, but I didn't like it enough to read the sequel. But then, I hate love triangles, so that might be part of why I didn't like it.
