How time flies! Can you believe that half the year has already gone?! Nonetheless, I made a list of the books I read over the past 6 months, and here is the list (the top being the earliest I read; highlighted in blue means they will be shortlisted for my 'Book of The Year 2007'):
  1. Talyn by Holly Lisle
  2. The Husband by Dean Koontz
  3. Pig Island by Mo Hayder
  4. Angel Fire by Linda Lael Miller
  5. All Night Long by Jayne Ann Krentz
  6. Red Leaves by Thomas H Cook
  7. My Nerdy Valentine by Vicki Lewis Thompson
  8. Every Breath You Take by Judith McNaught
  9. Dangerous Games by Lora Leigh
  10. Flint's Code by Paul Eddy
  11. The Dollmaker by Amanda Stevens
  12. No Regrets by Shannon K Butcher
  13. Officer Down by Theresa Schwegel
  14. The Memory Keeper's Daughter by Kim Edward
  15. The Secret Life of Bees by Sue Monk Kidd
  16. Sight Unseen by Samantha Graves
  17. Ice Blue by Anne Stuart
  18. Jackson Rule by Dinah McCall
  19. Be Mine by Laura Kasischke
  20. Shadows at Sunset by Anne Stuart
  21. Thief with No Shadow by Emily Gee
  22. Life's Golden Ticket by Brendon Burchard
  23. Dark Seduction by Brenda Joyce

All right, so I have read 23 books for the past 6 months. After making some calculations, that means I read an average of 3 books every month. Not so bad...but I think there's always room for improvement, hehe.

    Hello Mel, I think I should do one mid-year summary too. I only have a June summary. Haha!

    Alice - Darla and I have been doing this for maybe 3 years now for our reading group that she and I are both in. We call it "50 Challenge Book", which mean challeng ourself to read 50 books by the end of the year. But if we already reach 50 books then we can try 100 :) Since the 3yrs (Is it 3yrs Darla? Or more then that?) that she and I did this I have been listing all the books tht I have read for each months. So far I have read 28 books total since January of this year.

    I just never posted on my blog, which is why you never seen it :)

    Great list! I just finished my 27th book of the year. I was glad to see that someone else finds it difficult to read 40 books in six months! a


  10. MyUtopia Says:

    Ps: I signed up for the 50 book challenge this year as well.


  11. Julia Says:

    Myutopia - This should be fun....I wish you good luck reaching 50 books by the end of year :)

    Hi Debi, I still think I'm way behind!!!

    Hey Julia! I'm glad you decided to do it! I'll check it out later.

    Hi Kelly, thanks for visiting! I don't think I'm able to read 40 books within 6 months. Too little time!!! Hmm...unless I quit my job! LOL. Kidding! :P
