262/245 books

I read 240 books this year. Just short of 10 books for my reading goal of 250, but I still think that's pretty good considering I had two jobs and all the other obstacles that life throws at you. For 2012, my goal is to read 245. Thanks to Tales of the Crypt for hosting this challenge.

    1. 240? That's amazing! I'm planning on reading 200 this year and I'll probably struggle - despite having a lot of free time!

      Ruby Red is absolutely fantastic!! I kept putting it off because, usually, I'm not a fan of books involving time travel. I. WAS. SO. WRONG! I devoured this book. Ruby Red alone has changed how I view the time travel genre!

      What really surprised me is that there is so little romance, but this book still demanded my attention. I feel that sometimes I rely on the romantic side of a book to get me through a mediocre plot; but definitely not in this case! In my mind, that is the sign of a truly special book. I definitely foresee a budding romance in Sapphire Blue, the next in the series. I'm super excited to see how that plays out!
