I've been remiss about updating and I apologize for letting them accumulate.  Here' the rest of what I read this year.   One of my resolutions is to not let so much time go by without updating my books.  It was a slow year for me, but E being so sick really threw the latter quarter of the year into flux.  This is a pretty bare bones list, so feel free to inquire about any particular title that you'd like to know more about.

67. It's the Little Things: Everyday Interactions That Annoy, Anger, and Divide the Races by Lena Williams
68. The Handmaid and the Carpenter by Elizabeth Berg
69. Blue Bayou by JoAnn Ross
70. River Road by JoAnn Ross
71. Magnolia Moon by JoAnn Ross (together they form The Callahan Brothers Trilogy)
72. Stargazer by Claudia Gray
73. Still Life With Husband by Lauren Fox
74. How to Sleep With a Movie Star by Kristin Harmel
75. Dreamers of the Day by Mary Doria Russell*
76. Horatio's Drive by Dayton Duncan and Ken Burns* (the book that accompanies Burns documentary about the first cross-continental drive. Yes, I'm a history dork.)
77. An Echo In the Bone by Diana Gabaldon
78. The Smart One and the Pretty One by Claire LaZebnik
79. The Ghost Map: The Story of London's Most Terrifying Epidemic--and How It Changed Science, Cities, and the Modern World by Steven Johnson* (See above re history dork)
80. For Better, For Worse by Carole Matthews
81. Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins* (Great dystopian YA fiction. I highly recommend it to anyone who hasn't read it.)
82. Graceling by Kristin Cashore*
83. Persepolis by Marjane Satrapi* (I'm not a graphic novel lover, but this was a very effective look at Iran and it's descent into revolution.)
84. Secrets of My Hollywood Life by Jen Calonita
85. The Invention of Hugo Cabret by Brian Selznick
86. Remake by Connie Willis*
87. Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins* (The sequel to Hunger Games)
88. Uncharted Territory by Connie Willis
89. Vision in White by Nora Roberts (Book 1 of the Bride Quartet)
90. The Partly Cloudy Patriot by Sarah Vowell* (Again with the history dorkitude)
91. Bed of Roses by Nora Roberts (Book 2 of the Bride Quartet)
92. It's Okay If You're Clueless: and 23 More Tips for the College Bound by Terry McMillan
93. The Demon's Lexicon by Sarah Rees Brennan (This one is noteworthy because it's by a former HP fanfic writer who hit the big time. Interesting premise to the novel as well. I think it's nominated for the British equivalent of the Newbery.)
94. Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater (A good one for the werewolf lovers among you.)
95. The Queen of Attolia by Megan Whalen Turner

Hi Angela!

What did you think of the new Gabaldon? I gave up on her long ago, but I'm always interested in opinions.

Hi Kath! Happy New Year.

I heard Gabaldon read from the new book while I was at DragonCon in September which is how I found out that there was a new entry in the series. The historical detail is all still wonderful and I love Jamie, but I'm reading because I want to see how the series wraps up, not because I'm beside myself with anticipation about a new book.

Love the icon by the way.
