2012 In Review

2012 has been an odd year for this blog. 2011 was very much filled with book reviews, challenges and events. This year…its been mostly fluff & filler posts. I did have a steady stream of reviews up until June, when I discovered that I am expecting, and will have a little tyke to read to next year. I still read more than I thought I would, and have a few favorite books I’d like to highlight.

Howards End Howards End by EM Forster 

This book is a reminder of my days as an English major in college. I haven’t read anything this well written and filled with so many social and economic issues. It’s definitely one of my favorite book by far.

Origins : how the nine months before birth shape the rest of our lives Origins by Annie Murphey Paul

This book was a real eye-opener for me regarding this pregnancy. It helped me realize how my actions effect the baby. It went into depth of various studies and as well as the author’s personal experiences with her own pregnancies. I highly recommend this for soon to be new moms.

Paris in Love by Eloisa James Paris in Love by Eloisa James

This is one of my favorite Parisian memoirs. The memories and anecdotes are written as short little notes and are at times poetic, insightful and reveal a great deal about a city  I miss so much and wish I had more of a concrete attachment to.
