Well it's that time again, time for the third annual year end awards. Just like the Oscar, Grammy and  all the other silly award shows, I pick my favorite books that I have read this past year. The pickings are slim this year. Not because there was a shortage of good books, I just didn't read much this last year. Crazy I know!! But I was able to pick a few so here goes:

Favorite Gotta Read:

The Shoemaker's Wife

Best Sequel
"The Hunger Games" Trilogy by Suzanne Collins

Best Book adapted to a Movie
"The Help" by Kathryn Stockett

Biggest Surprise
"The Homecoming of Samuel Lake" by Jenny Wingfield

Biggest Let Down
"The Casual Vacancy" by J.K. Rowling
(Guess I had too high of expectations from the author of Harry Potter)

Best Holiday Read
"Christmas On Ladybug Farm" by Donna Ball
(If your a fan of the Ladybug Farm series, then you will love this novella)

That's it...another year "in the Books!" (pardon the pun)
For the New Year, I resolve to read more books in 2013 and stay away from the mindless television, and for you...

"May you always have work for your hands to do.
May your pockets hold always a coin or two.
May the sun shine bright on your windowpane.
May the rainbow be certain to follow each rain.
May the hand of a friend always be near you.
And may God fill your heart with gladness to cheer you"

I need to get to reading. I haven't read much this year either. I have started Pride and Prejudice (I Know). It's a new year's resolution along with the piano thing.
