Stay tuned for a list of "to-reads" for 2012. My Goodreads shelf is empty and ready to be filled with some incredible books. How many are you hoping to read this year? I just want to beat my recent totals of around 60 or so. Maybe 2012 will be the year I read 70 books?

And a link to the recap for last year: is here!

And if you want to see a complete list of the books I read in 2011, with the links for any reviews I completed, click here to check out Reading with Redneck.


  1. I so love your book lists. I so dropped the ball on my reading when school started up this fall... *SIGH*

    Can't wait to see your reading list!

  2. LOL Great list. One of my goals is to read more this year.

  3. Hee! Love this!

    {Also? I'm itching to read more, so I can't wait for that reading list post!}

  4. 70 for 2012? That's a wonderful goal.

    I usually average around 25, but would love to double that in 2012 (except gonna be extra busy so just gonna try to maintain 25).

    Best of luck!

  5. Not Ready for Mom Jeans - love it! A great list - so glad you linked up - I always love seeing what you read because we often like such similar books :-)

  6. If you ever DO get ready for mom jeans, I'm hitting you over the head with something.

    This is actually really cute. I've seen it done with songs, but never books. Fun!

  7. What a fun idea! I did the meme over on my blog. Thanks for the idea!
