Happy last Monday of 2012! <~~ I said this last week too. Whoops! This time I mean it


I don't have a lot to report this Monday as I decided to take a short break from reviewing. I will have some great books to talk about starting next year. Yea, that's tomorrow.

Reviews:
The Bookie's Son by Andrew Goldstein

Read/Reviews Coming Soon:
Saturday Night Widows by Becky Aikman

The Imposter Bride by Nancy Richler

Heaven Should Fall by Rebecca Coleman

Currently Reading:
Parlor Games by Maryka Biaggio

Upcoming: 

I'm going to read something from my list for the 2013 TBR Pile Challenge. I want to get going on this challenge right away! 

A few other books calling out to me:

Breakfast at Tiffany's by Truman Capote


The Love Song of Jonny Valentine by Teddy Wayne


As it's the last day of 2012 I'm going to be reflecting on this year in reading. I may even make some bookish resolutions for 2013. Stay tuned! 

Have a great week everyone!

    1. Hi Laurel, thanks for stopping by. I'm all confused this week because there isn't a link up post, lol.

  2. Ooh, I've always felt like Breakfast at Tiffany's is something I should read/watch (I was named after Audrey Hepburn). Happy 2013!

  4. You've got a lot going on! That cover of B @ T's looks awesome! I am working on finishing Pride and Prejudice as well as reading Tucker's Max's Assholes Finish First (which basically shows what a total prick he is, but it's also very entertaining)

  5. You have such great-looking books this week. I can never just peek in around here - it always requires a few trips to Goodreads and IndieBound to check books out. :)
    Hope you are having a wonderful celebration tonight and a great beginning to 2013!

    1. I didn't keep track of my reading this year. I could look at my list of checked out books from the local library I suppose but I'm too lazy ;) In 2013 I'll be keeping track on Goodreads :)

  8. I've posted my Reading list for Adam's challenge too and I'm anxious to start. Too many unread books in my house. You have some great reading on that list. The Good Earth, Great Expectations, and Uncle Tom's Cabin are life-time favourites. I also enjoyed Once Hundred Years of Solitude and The Reader very much. Happy reading in 2013, and thanks for visiting Fresh Ink Books.

  10. Happy New Year Jen! Breakfast at Tiffany's looks great (I haven't read or seen the movie. I should probably do that sometime soon...) The cover for Parlor Games is really interesting (I think I have a weakness for books with 1920s vibes.)

    1. I haven't read/watched it either! Crazy right? You'd love Parlor Games if that vibe appeals to you :) I'm in the middle of it now, it's pretty darn good!

  12. Breakfast at Tiffany's is one book (among hundreds) that has been languishing on my shelves for too long. I picked it up because I had heard that the book is VERY different from the movie, and I love finding those differences. Enjoy it and good luck with the TBR Pile Challenge!

    Happy New Year!
