Read More: A Resolution Update

One of my goals for 2011 is to read a book a month (or at least 12 books during the year).  I just started book #13 so...resolution achieved!  Below is a list of the books I have read from January - September.  Yes, I do enjoy a young adult book now and then.  *cough* The Hunger Games series is awesome. *cough* *cough*
  1. Winter's Bone
  2. The Other Wes Moore: One Name, Two Fates
  3. Bossypants
  4. Club Dead
  5. Dead to the World 
  6. The Hunger Games 
  7. Catching Fire  (The Hunger Games book 2)
  8. A Stolen Life: A Memoir
  9. The Invention of Hugo Cabret (re-read)
  10. Mockingjay  (The Hunger Games book 3)
  11. World War Z
  12. Typhoid Mary: An Urban Historical 
  13. A Song to Sing, A Life to Live: Reflections on Music as Spiritual Practice (currently reading)
I bought book #13 at a United Methodist Women's Conference that I attended with my mom years ago.  Emily Saliers (1/2 of the Indigo Girls!) was one of the key note speakers and she and her father performed both secular and sacred music during the general session.  This was, by far, my favorite part of the conference.  I was so excited to meet her and had her sign my copy of the I'm finally reading it.

Also, a note on #9, I rarely re-read books but we saw a preview for Hugo, a movie based on the book The Invention of Hugo Cabret, before seeing Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2.  It reminded me how much I enjoyed the book. I hope the movie is good.

  1. I've totally read the Twilight books more times than I can count. Right now, my books are mainly focused on natural childbirth, midwifery, breastfeeding and the occasional Curious George. :)
