Thus far this year I’ve read 38 books. I’m about halfway through one of Christopher Pike’s adult novels right now so I’m thinking the total will be 39 by New Year’s Eve. Not exactly the 41 that I read last year but still, not too shabby.
The best book I read this year is actually a tie between Beautiful Creatures by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl and Maggie Stiefvater’s books Shiver and Linger. I got really into the young adult genre this year and these were by far my favorites. To see my reviews of these books, you can go here, here and here. You should definitely check them out, they’re so good!
And the worst book easily goes to Superstitious by R.L. Stine. Such a bummer. I grew up LOVING R.L. Stine’s books! But the man needs to stick to Goosebumps and Fear Street and stay away from adult novels.
