So far this year I have read:

1. In Death 2: Glory in Death - J. D. Robb I am loving this series.

2. Immortal in Death - J. D. Robb

3. Vampire academy 6 :Last Sacrifice - Richelle Mead I did like it, but I was expecting some more action.

4. In Death 4: Rapture in Death - J. D. Robb My favourite so far!

5. Riyria Revelations 3: Nyphron Rising - Michael J. Sullivan Loved this one. Arista rocks!

6. The Replacement - Brenna Yovannof Just plain boring, but had and interesting concept.

7. In Death 5: Ceremony in Death - J. D. Robb Wasn't quite as good as some of the previous In Death books, imho.

8. The Riyria Revelations 4 - The Emerald Storm - Michael J. Sullivan I am not too into ships and sea voyages so this one didn't do it for me as much as the others in the series.

9. Fever 5: Shadowfever - Karen M. Moning Amazing finale to a great series. Loved it.

10. Anna and the French Kiss - Stephanie Perkins Love, love, love this book! Ranks right around Perfect Chemistry and Return to Paradise for me.

11. Hollowland - Amanda Hocking Wow, awesome YA zombie book! Has everything I love; great characters, interesting story, action, and love. I am hoping for a sequel.

12. A Kiss in Time - Alex Flinn I thought Flinn's other fairy tale re-telling, Beastly, was much better. The characters fell flat.

Why don't you go onto the Amazon site, and see how many pages the paperback versions of the books you've read have? The pages are listed under "product details"

I'm a horrifically slow reader, so I won't hit 100, but I thought it might be fun anyway to keep track of my reading this year.

Some of these books are ones I'm teaching this semester for a course on Romanticism in Spanish literature (but still a joy to read, of course, since I can choose what to teach), and will be labeled as such.

So far:

January
1. Hyperion, by Dan Simmons
2. Don Juan Tenorio, by José Zorrilla (for teaching)

February
1. El estudiante de Salamanca, by José de Espronceda (for teaching)
2. Don Álvaro o la fuerza del sino, by Duque de Rivas (for teaching)

March
1. Wishful Drinking, by Carrie Fisher
2. No More Dirty Looks: The Truth About your Beauty Products and the Ultimate Guide to Safe and Clean Cosmetics, by Siobhan O’Connor and Alexandra Spunt
3. El señor de Bembibre, by Enrique Gil y Carrasco (for teaching)
4. At Home: A Short History of Private Life, by Bill Bryson
5. The Most Human Human: What Talking with Computers Teaches Us About What It Means to Be Alive, by Brian Christian

April
1. The Dream of Reason: A History of Philosophy from the Greeks to the Renaissance, by Anthony Gottlieb
2. The Professor and the Madman: A Tale of Murder, Insanity, and the Making of the Oxford English Dictionary, by Simon Winchester
3. Fall of Hyperion, by Dan Simmons
4. The Clockwork Universe: Isaac Newton, the Royal Society, and the Birth of the Modern World, by Edward Dolnick

May
1. In The Plex: How Google Thinks, Works, and Shapes Our Lives, by Steven Levy

1 Hitch-22 A Memoir by Christopher Hitchens - non-Fiction **** (out of six *)
2 Collider by Paul Halbern - non-Fiction science ***
3 Stanley Weinbaum Omnibus by Stanley Weimbaum (thanks Nate the great ) - Fiction Sci-Fi **
4 Covenant with Death by John Harris – Fiction historical *****
5 The Ringworld Engineers by Larry Niven – Fiction Sci-Fi *** (not as good as first in series)
6 How Green was My Valley by Richard Llweellyn – Fiction *****
7 The Grand Design by Stephen Hawking – non-Fiction science ****
8 Foundations Edge by Isaac Asimov – Fiction Sci-Fi ****
9 To Hold the Crown: The Story of King Henry VII and Elizabeth of York by Jean Plaidy – non-Fiction history ***
10 The Tortilla Curtain by T.C. Boyle – Fiction ****
11 The Illustrated Man by Ray Bradbury – Fiction Sci-Fi ****
12 The Castle of Otranto by Horace Walpole – Fiction fantasy ***
13 The Alchemy of Air by Thomas Hager - non-Fiction science ***
14 The Stars Are Ours by Andre Norton Fiction Sci-Fi ***
15 The Demon Under the Microscope by Thomas Hager - non-Fiction science ****

I noticed that several people participating in this enterprise had lists on Goodreads.com. I had a look at that web site and decided to join up myself. Therefore, while I will from time to time update the ticker bar below I will maintain the list of books read with my discussions of the same at the link below.

As I did with The Stand by Stephen King ... I'm doing this just for me... Just to see what I read throughout this year.
