Booking Through Thursday...Favorites

A deceptively easy question for this week (easy to ask but possibly hard to answer): What are/were your favorite book(s) of the year? (Bonus points if you know how many books you read.)

Currently, I'm at 108 with 2 DNF, I will have a couple of more books read before the end of the year.  That's less than normal (last year I read 160), but I had major surgery this summer and it disrupted every aspect of my life.  I keep track of what I read, but I don't have any real goals, nor is it a competition.  Too many challenges and deadlines make reading less fun for me.  So 108+ books for the year is fine by me.

My 5 Star Favorites this year?  The School of Essential Ingredients, The Wedding Dress, Catching Fire, The Captive Heart.

What about you?  What were your favorite books for 2012?

  1. I also enjoyed Catching Fire :)


  2. Hope you are feeling better, you have a lot of titles read.


  3. Your health is more important than a hitting a target, and I hope you are fully recovered now.
    I do not know the books you name, but I will look into them.

    kind regards,

  4. I'm not through reading for the year either, and will post about my favorites later. I loved The School of Essential Ingredients when I read it too.

  5. 108 books is a great number. I only read half of that!

  6. I haven't read any of your favorites...more books to explore!

    Thanks for visiting my blog.

  7. Im at 109 right now. One of my top 5 would have to be Wonder by Rj Palancio.

  8. I haven't read any of your favorites but I mean to read Catching Fire. I loved that series for the way it spoke vines to me about government. Weird, I know, as there are so many other exciting elements... :)

  9. 108+ books is more than I managed.

    I've also come to the conclusion that deadlines aren't fun while reading so I'm cutting back on reading challenges next year.

  10. I don't do challenges either. I found they were just way too stressful for me so I stopped a couple of years ago. 108 is better than I did!
