Fall Into Reading Wrap Up

Fall into Reading 2012

Katrina @ Callapidder Days hosted Fall Into Reading

It was only three months ago, but the beginning of Fall Into Reading seems so far in the past. I wasn’t able to participate in the end of the FrightFall Readathon or Dewey’s 24-hour Readathon, which put a dent in my plans. I also decided to do NaNoWriMo. A month of writing more than usual is not conducive to reading.I won a Kindle in November and I haven’t gotten much chance to use it! Regrettably, there are only so many hours in a day.

Books finished between Sept. 22nd and Dec. 21st:

Fall Into Reading 2012 Summary: Finished 6 books and 16 short stories. (Which is more than last year by a book and 11 stories.)

Did you finish reading all the books on your fall reading list? If not, why not? Nope. Not even close. That’s pretty normal for me.

Did you stick to your original goals or did you change your list as you went along? My lists always change, but in this case, life around me gave me problems.

What was your favorite book that you read this fall? Least favorite? Why? Let the Right One In was my favorite of the fall. I really enjoyed the tapestry of characters and events. This might be a “vampire” story, but it’s definitely more about the mortal characters. Least? Shelf Life. I was looking forward to speculative fiction stories involving bookstores and the book didn’t quite deliver.

Did you discover a new author or genre this fall? Did you love them? Not love them? Discovered Ian Rogers. Every House is Haunted had strong competition for my favorite book. I’ll be checking out more of his writings in the future.

Other observations: Didn’t get much past my Hallowe’en reading. Not only have I been embroiled with my writing, I’ve been in a lull with my reading. I think it might be time to call a moratorium on some of my in-progress books that I’m not enjoying very much.

    I’m a little like you – I started out good and then slowed down dramatically in November. I did manage 8 books though.
