Reading Update (September 24-December 31, 2013)

Boy howdy, have I really not done a reading update since September?! Shocking.

I read some good books in that chunk of time, and the total for 2013 was 137 books. Not record-breaking (especially with all those picture books), but more than I expected.

  1. Widows and Orphans by Susan Meissner – Weak.
  2. The Book of Common Prayer Daily Devotional – I was reading it every day, and then I became impatient and read the whole rest of it in like 9 days.
  3. Irish Tenure by Ralph McIrney – Not bad.
  4. Sparkly Green Earrings by Melanie Shankle – Delightful.
  5. Die Trying (Jack Reacher #2) by Lee Child – I rather like Jack Reacher, it happens.
  6. The Eagle of the Ninth by Rosemary Sutcliff – I was a bit disappointed.
  7. Rutland Place (Thomas & Charlotte Pitt #5) by Anne Perry – Love.
  8. Bluegate Fields (Thomas & Charlotte Pitt #6) by Anne Perry – Also really good.
  9. Tripwire (Jack Reacher #3) by Lee Child – Yay Jack Reacher!
  10. The Subversive Copy Editor by Carol Fisher Saller – Loved it, grammar geek that I am.
  11. The Cuckoo’s Calling by Robert Galbraith – JK Rowling really did quite a good job on this one.
  12. Death in the Devil’s Acre (Thomas & Charlotte Pitt #7) by Anne Perry – Not my favorite Thomas & Charlotte Pitt, truth be told.
  13. To Whisper Her Name by Tamera Alexander – Fine. Liked A Lasting Impression much better though.
  14. The Willoughbys by Lois Lowry – Slightly better than eh.
  15. Running Blind (Jack Reacher #7) by Lee Child
  16. The Big Over Easy (Nursery Crimes #1) by Jasper Fforde – I like Fforde’s off-beat crime novels, but I seem to tire of them once the novelty wears off.
  17. Echo Burning (Jack Reacher #8) by Lee Child
  18. Cardington Crescent (Thomas & Charlotte Pitt #8) by Anne Perry
  19. These Things Hidden by Heather Gudenkauf
  20. Eldest (Inheritance Cycle #2) by Christopher Paolini – This was great. Can’t believe it took me more than 6 years to finally pick up this second book (which I owned!) – really excellent.
  21. The Hunger Games (The Hunger Games #1) by Suzanne Collins – Had to reread after seeing Catching Fire. Loved, again.
  22. Catching Fire (The Hunger Games #2) by Suzanne Collins – Loved better this second time around.
  23. Mockingjay (The Hunger Games #3) by Suzanne Collins – Finally really appreciated this one.
  24. The Screwtape Letters by C.S. Lewis – I think this was my 3rd read-through.
  25. Old Man Winter: The New Season by Bethany Burke – This picture book has beautiful colored pencil illustrations.
