‘What you read when you don’t have to determines what you will be when you can’t help it’
– Oscar Wilde

This time last year I wrote this piece about my newfound love of reading and about my pledge to read 20 books in 2012. Guess what? I read 19.5 again! Oh, and 7 half books too – so I kind of made the 20, right? If you follow me on Goodreads, then you may already know what I have read but here is the shortlist:

A Place of Yes by Bethenny Frankel

The Paris Wife by Paula McClain (my review)

Rapid Italian vol 1 by Earworms (audiobook)

The Great Gatsby by F Scott Fitzgerald

Rules of Civility by Amor Towles

Skinny Bitch by Rory Freedman

I heart Vegas by Lindsay Kelk

Notes on a Scandal by Zoe Keller

The Jane Austen Book Club by Karen Joy Fowler

How to be a Woman by Caitlin Moran

Tigers in Red Weather by Liza Klaussman

On the Island by Tracey Garvis-Greaves (my review)

Fifty Shades of Grey by E.L. James

Live and Laughing by Michael McIntyre

The Song of Achilles by Madeline Miller

The Slap by Christos Tsiolkas

A Streetcat named Bob by James Bowen (my review)

Is it just me? by Miranda Hart (my review)

Room by Emma Donaghue

The Accidental Mother by Rowan Coleman

Books on Goodreads

I’ve pledged to complete 25 books this year. I’ve got a couple of books started already which gives me a headstart, plus my Book Club and my commute on the Tube should make fitting in reading easier.

What do you think I should be reading next?
Any recommendations?
