Another book list - and GO PACK GO!!

You know it's coming. A Green Bay Packer post. So, instead, I'm posting the books I (erica) read in 2011. The funny part is my husband kept telling me we had way too many books and I read way too many books and what was with all the books anyway?? So he bought me a Kindle for my birthday. And, well, so did my dad. Yes, it all worked out. :) 

And yes, I read more books than I thought. Here are the links, in no particular order. (seriously, I didn't even realize I read them until I started looking at my Kindle archives, my bookshelf, and some random memories I also didn't exacly recall until I concentrated extra-special hard :)  (yes, some are adult fiction, some are memoirs, some are YA and some are MG. No, I did not indicate. Click on it, you might like it. :) (and yes, I indicated which ones I won through the blogosphere. because blogs are super cool like that) (and yes, I accidentally bought a pretty smutty romance book that I did, in fact, read. no, I will not tell you which one. well, maybe, if you ask...)

There might be more. There most certainly are more. For all you aspiring authors out there, I am so, so sorry. May no one read your book that is so forgetful as me (unless they pay for it, of course!!).

Oh, wait, I had a point in all this. Let's see if I can find it. Oh, wait, here it is:

Ha, you weren't expecting that, were you? Cuties!


  1. OMG, the Fablehaven books are awesome. I can't believe they don't get more press. Mull totally needs to write more in that world. :end gush:

    Go PACK!

  2. Wow! Great big ol list there! LOVE some of them, still need to read others, and need to investigate a few I've never heard of! Thanks!

  3. A great list, many in here I haven't read. Off to check a few out!

  4. Hehehehe good list. I can't list the books that I've read, but I remember their plots. If you give me the name, and I've read the book, I can probably even tell you the main character's names.

    I'm like the rainman when it comes to books. :-D

  5. So, I was keeping tabs as I read through that list, and I've only read TWO of them! I do have the sample for THE BOOK THIEF on my Kindle, but I'm thinking that doesn't count...
