books read 2012

Books I read in December

And so, another year is almost over. And this is the last book tally of 2012. I’ve registered some of the books I’ve read this month on Goodreads, but not all of them. I topped out at 502 books for the year, which is a decent enough number, I suppose. …

Books I read in November

Well, where have November gone? Looking at the amount of books I read, I have a certain idea of why it went by so quickly… I discovered some new authors through Goodreads – and proceeded to read everything in their series. I also did a bit of travel, which resulted …

Book review: Dronningen (100 things #5)

There is a new Norwegian book out, about Queen Sonja. Dronningen by Ingar Sletten Kolloen. Already last week, the papers were filled with news from the book (some of which were definitely known before) her two miscarriages, that Mette-Marit served her potential mother-in-law pasta with canned tuna the first time …

Books I read in September

The first week of September was vacation time – Paris, and reading in the parks, and in cafés. Some books were more serious, but basically it’s been a month of reading fluff. And it’s been glorious.

Books I read in April

April was Easter break, and a lot of books read. Some newly published books, and some books that have been backlisted. I’ve ordered myself a trip to Paris this summer, and Eloisa James’ Paris in Love was quite instrumental in making me look forward to that with its little tidbits …

Books I read in March

You know you have high expectations for your own reading when you do a count of your reading so far on March 6, and think… only 6 books? Granted, it’s picked up since then.

Books I read in February

I have started a couple of heavier books, but the biography on Queen Anne and (yet another) biography on Queen Elizabeth will probably end up being finished in March and be on March’s list instead. I’m also getting back to reading while biking, or in the walking-breaks between running in …

Books I read in January

For 2012, I’m going to try to track the books I read each month, so I have a way to know how much I read. I tend to read a lot of books, so I won’t go into detail on them. January has been a month of comfort reading. When …
