Books: 4 (2,145 pages)
- Bluff Island Rescue Service, by Stephanie Hubbard (346 pages) - fascinating memoir about overcoming one's past
- Garden Spells, by Sarah Addison Allen (290 pages) - light and fun comfort read
- The Historian, by Elizabeth Kostova (909 pages) - creepy, fascinating, and highly detailed story of the Dracula legend
- The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, by Steig Larrson (600 pages) - interesting but I'm not sure what is making everyone so madly in love with this book
Audiobooks: 8 (115.42 hours)
- The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, by Robert Louis Stevenson (2.5 hours) - surprisingly good and very short
- The Picture of Dorian Gray, by Oscar Wilde (8.75 hours) - surprisingly wordy but still interesting
- Catching Fire, by Suzanne Collins (11.6 hours) - much better than the first book in the series (The Hunger Games)
- Mockingjay, by Suzanne Collins (11.75 hours) - not as good as book 2 (Catching Fire) but a very fitting end to the trilogy
- The People of Sparks, by Jeanne DuPrau (7.9 hours) - continues the story of The People of Ember but gets a bit heavy handed, though still enjoyable
- Bleak House, by Charles Dickens (39.25 hours) - not as good as I remembered from high school but still a good read - I love all the complicated details!
- The Gathering Storm, by Robert Jordan and Brandon Sanderson (33 hours) - this was a re-read in preparation for the next book in the series, and I REALLY enjoyed listening to this book again
- Rikki-Tikki Tavi, by Rudyard Kipling (.67 hours) - what a treat to revisit this beloved story with Kiddo!
Since my birthday just passed it's time for me to recap my reading year so I'm off to start totaling things up now. I'll have a list of my best reads of the year for you later this week!
