2012-12-28_09-35-40_164

Now I read quite a few books during my 27 Goals Challenge. Here they are in no particular order. I will star (*) the ones that I highly recommend reading if you have time and let you know which ones to avoid.

Non-Fiction

Accounting Comes Alive (Mark Robillard and Peter Frampton)

*Anne Frank: Diary of a Young Gril* (Anne Frank)

Container Gardening (Alice Murray)

Europe on 5 Wrong Turns a Day (Doug Mack) – I was really bored with this book. I expected more out of it.

*Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me* (Mindy Kaling)

Ish – Geting the ‘Ish Out in the Open (Regina Griffin) – Do not waste your time with this book.

Medium Raw (Anthony Bourdain)

My Horizontal Life (Chelsea Handler)

*Pups in Tea Cups* (Carolyn McCray) – No longer sold through Amazon… sorry)

Seriously I’m Kidding (Ellen DeGeneres)

*Seriously Mum, What’s an Alpaca?* (Alan Parks)

Stiff: The Curious Lives of Human Cadavers (Mary Roach) – I do recommend this book for those that are interested in the science and anthropology behind it all… it is not a book for most

The Book of Tea (Okakura Kakuzo) – Really short… not really worth it

The Girl in the Italian Bakery (Kenneth Tingle) – I kept waiting for it to get better… then it was over…

Write Good or Die (Scott Nicholson)

Fiction

A Royal Pain (Megan Mulry) – A good beach read… not really believable

*After the Fall* (Elle Casey)

Alys (Kiri Callaghan)

Being Anti-Social (Leigh Cunningham)

*Between the Realms* (Elle Casey)

Cake Icing, Butt Budder and Tea Lids (Renee Andrews)

*Call to Arms* (Elle Casey)

*Darkness and Light* (Elle Casey)

Disenchanted (Robert Kroese) – A waste of time

Eloide & Heloise (Cecilee Linke) – a good coming of age drama type books

*Ever After* (Kim Harrison)

Glimmers (Barbara Brooke) – for some reason this is part of a series… meh

*Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows* (J.K. Rowling)

*Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire* (J.K. Rowling)

*Harry Potter and the  Order of the Pheonix* (J.K Rowling)

*Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince* (J.K. Rowling)

My Mormon Crush, My Dog Eats Poo (Lucy Liew & Lisa Lim) – Thank goodness this has disappeared from Amazon

*New World Order* (Elle Casey)

*Perfect Blood* (Kim Harrison)

*Portal Guardains* (Elle Casey)

The Elite (Kiera Cass) – Not too bad. It’s hunger games meets The Bachelor

The Gardens of Almhain (Laura Mallory) – Just when the book finally gets interesting… you only have 50 pages left… skip it

The Prince (Kiera Cass)

The Selection (Kiera Cass)

The Shoemaker’s Wife (Adriana Trigiani)

OTHER

I also listened to  Alcatraz Versus the Evil Librarians (Brandon Sanderson) through Audible. I highly recommend this book even if it is geared towards a younger market. Read it to your kids!
