Christmas Break

First off, some good news: I was one of ten winners of Elana Johnson's Query Letter Giveaway last week - I won a query letter critique by the fabulous Elana Johnson!

Secondly, I'll be taking a blogging break and attempting to stay off the computer (ha!) to spend the holidays with my family and enjoy my kids' winter break from school.

Merry Christmas to you all! See you in January!

BooKrushed 2011 Reading Challenge Results

At the beginning of 2011, I decided to participate in the BooKrushed 2011 Reading Challenge by reading 11 books published in 2011. I know a lot of you read way more than I do, but I did finish the challenge so I thought I'd give myself a pat on the back. :)

Here are the 11 books I read:
1.  Across the Universe by Beth Revis
2.  Desires of the Dead by Kimberly Derting
3.  Delirium by Lauren Oliver
4.  The Liar Society by Lisa and Laura Roecker
5.  The Hating Game by Talli Roland (paperback release in 2011)
6.  Possession by Elana Johnson
7.  With a Name Like Love by Tess Hilmo
8.  The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin
9.  Bestest.Ramadan.Ever by Medeia Sharif
10. Imaginary Girls by Nova Ren Suma
11. The Death Cure by James Dashner

There were some amazing books published this past year! Have you read any of these? Or any other books published in 2011 not mentioned here? What books are you looking forward to in 2012?
