Books of 2011 (And Goals for Next Year!) Wrap-Up

My goal was to read 50 books this year, something I thought I could do because it seems like I read a lot (at least compared to other people I know.) But I just didn't do it. I read 41 books this year. Not too shabby I guess. But next year I plan to really make this goal! I think I may have made it and not known it though, because I only started this blog and started keeping track with goodreads in the middle of the year. I tried to remember all the books I had read but I might have missed a few. So here are all the books I managed to finish: (Not in a particular order. They were at first but as I went back to link reviews, happily I found more!)

1. Evercrossed by Elizabeth Chandler
2. Stolen by Lucy Christopher
3. An Abundance of Katherines by John Green
4. Where She Went by Gayle Forman
5. City of Fallen Angels by Cassandra Clare

And that's it for me! There are some AMAZING books coming up for 2012, and I can't wait to read them, and hopefully smash my goal of 50 books. 2011 was my first year blogging and I'm happy to say it was a great year. Bloggers as well as readers have been great to me. Thanks to anyone who has followed, read, or commented. You guys rock!

So what did you read this year? What was your favorite book? Did you do an end of the year post? Link it up or tell me in the comments and I'll be happy to check it out. :D
