December "Reads"

If you're here from Reading Angel's New Year's Resolutions Giveaway, I plan to post mine on Wednesday. But go check out all the other giveaways...over one hundred bloggers participating this week. I haven't finalized my prizes yet, but I have a copy of THE ETERNAL ONES, INTERTWINED, PERFECT CHEMISTRY and and audiobook of Sherman Alexie's FLIGHT on my desk right now eager to be mailed out.

New Year's Reading Resolutions
So...Happy New Year Everyone!

I know, It's January. 2011. I shouldn't be looking back...or I should be looking back on the whole year. Instead, I'm just posting my December Audiobooks.

I had twelve total...pretty good since I was traveling for the holidays one week and read more than listened to books then.

Here are my YA/MG books:

The Star of KazanHush, HushNewes from the DeadRadianceI Am Number FourNightshadeThe Replacement

I also read five adult books. My favorite nonfiction this month was:

What the Dog Saw and Other Adventures This collection of interesting stories isn't my favorite by Malcolm Gladwell, but I still enjoyed it. If you're not into random, ponderable topics, I'd recommend trying TIPPING POINT and/or BLINK first.


  1. WHAT THE DOG SAW has been (literally) on my shelf for ages--glad to see you liked it!

  2. So, you talked me into trying audiobooks. I took three with me on the long-a** drive to my parents over the holidays. And, I finished all of them. I have to say that audiobooks are the way to go when stuck in a car for a long time. But, I won't be giving up my "actual" books anytime soon :)

  3. Karla,
    So glad you enjoyed the audio. The next step is to have one in your car or on your Mp3 player for when you're driving...Don't worry, they can be a supplement instead of a replacement of "actual" books;)

  4. Oooh, I see you've got I AM NUMBER FOUR there. I'd really like to read that one.
