30 Books in 2011

Here is a list of books that I read this year in reverse order (most recently read to the first read). πŸ˜€

And yes, I read too many YA books. Hey, it comes with the territory. πŸ˜€ Next year, the goal is 31 books. I’d make it 35, but seeing as how reaching 30 books this year was difficult, I’m keeping my goal more realistic.

  1. I love YA fantasy fiction! I just can’t get over how great they are in this generation. They certainly weren’t this facinating when I was in high school visiting the library every other day…

    I wish I had more time to read all of these books, but I feel proud to say I recognize 1-2 authors in your list…! Just because a first grader told me Disney was old school (Ouch…), doesn’t mean I’m behind “the times,” right? …Right…??

    Hehe…Thanks for sharing your book list. I will definitely check out these books one day πŸ™‚



  2. Hey, Mina!

    Thanks for dropping by! Do check out these books when you have time; most of them are great reads! πŸ™‚

    And Disney is OLD SCHOOL?! But I still watch Disney! (and I’m in my twenties already LOL)


  3. Yea, can you believe it?? I’m in my twenties, too, but after hearing a 7-year-old come up to me and telling me I’m “old school” ’cause I watch disney makes me feel like an old lady!!

    Hmph…and I thought I was staying YOUNG by watching cartoons and animation. Oh well… x.x


  4. Maybe that kid’s trying to act grown up by denouncing Disney. I don’t know.

    And I know what you mean. I try to keep up with my students by watching cartoons and Disney and the teen shows. However, I cannot stand Gossip Girl, Pretty Little Liars and the Vampire Diaries. Well, the latter’s okay because of Ian Somerhalder LOL πŸ˜€


  5. I’ve heard of all those shows, but I don’t watch them (tried each for 5 minutes and turned the channel >-<)…

    I think the only shows I watched was Buffy the Vampire Slayer. That was it! o-o!! lol…I guess I should open the T.V. more xD!
