Books Read in 2011

Lots of folks are compiling their lists and I wasn't going to do this since I haven't kept very good track this past year, and I was embarrassed at the dearth of books I've read. Usually there are a lot more! It's been quite a year personally and professionally in so many ways: Emotional on a daily basis, full of tears, full of joy, several book deals, emergencies, lack of sleep, lots of travel, book launch, you name it! 

Caroline Starr Rose has her list here and it sort of kicked me in the pants to sit down and go through my library list of books checked out and read, as well as all the books tucked around the house that I bought and read. 

Not as much adult or non-fiction, even though I checked out several highly recommended adult titles that I haven't finished and are sitting under my bed, waiting for me. They'll be on next year's list - I hope! 

I am amazed that the total is still 68 books!!! I thought for sure it would be a measly 30 or 40. :-)

That's a lot of books!! I have no idea how many books I read this year or how I'd even begin to figure it out (I tend to forget when it was I actually read something). =)

Well, I start with my library record, then just go to my shelves and find all the 2011 books! I need to keep better track, too. I keep thinking I'll be more organized on Goodreads and I'm totally NOT!

Hey, how were your holidays? I hope great! Haven't heard from you in awhile . . . are you loving your new agent???

And just yesterday I suddenly wondered if Circle of Secrets was reviewed by Teen Reads . . . do you know?

My holidays went well (but I'm glad they're over).

I hope you have lots of fun this new year--and no more Armageddon deadlines. =D

I'm finding having an agent doesn't change things much . . . other than I don't have to send out queries and keep track and obsess over my email inbox anymore. ;-) I'm still writing, though it helps to have my agent as another person to give me great advice on said writing. =)

Hmm . . . I'm not sure if Circle of Secrets was reviewed or not. Jen has kind of fallen behind on posting reviews and stuff--family issues taking up a lot of her time. I'll check into it and see if I hear back from her. =)

Thanks for looking into it, Joan! My Amazon and Goodreads reviews are so sparse for this book, not sure why . . .

Not worrying about getting an agent though is huge! Enjoy!
