Vote for My Last 5 Books of the Year!

Tonight I’m going to finish the final two chapters of George Orwell’s Animal Farm, and I’m anticipating a very positive review because it’s been an excellent read so far. That means if you’ve been paying attention, I’m down to my last five books of the year! I read 20 books in 2011, and my goal this year was to read 25 (with The Hobbit as a bonus re-read before the movie release in December, if I can squeeze it in!).

I always love including my followers, so I’d like you to pick five books from my to-read list below, and the novels that receive the most votes will make up the rest of my 2012 reading! I’ll even label them by genre to make your decision-making a bit easier…


  • Deeply, Desperately by Heather Webber (sequel to Truly, Madly)
  • A Lot Like Love by Julie James (another novel in her FBI series)
  • Gilded Age by Claire McMillan

Literary/Historical Fiction

  • The Art of Hearing Heartbeats by Jan-Philipp Sendker
  • The Sandcastle Girls by Chris Bohjalian

Young Adult Fiction

  • Artemis Fowl: The Last Guardian by Eoin Colfer (final book in the series!)


  • My Week with Marilyn by Colin Clark


  • The House of Mirth by Edith Wharton

So that’s eight books total, but you can only choose five! No additions, please, as I have already purchased all these books (or were given as birthday gifts) , and cannot afford to go broke on more! Hopefully, I’ll get around to your favorites eventually!

    • Well, the book has nothing to do with the 1990 movie “Truly, Madly, Deeply” with Alan Rickman, if that’s what you’re thinking (thanks imdb!)…I actually liked “My Week with Marilyn” so I think it will be good.

      2 votes for Artemis so far!

    • No worries! I try to read novels from a variety of genres, but I understand most people have their reading niche. I’m sure that I’ll want to break up the chick-lit with another classic this year!
