I am bowing down to you. What an impressive number! :) You've got some books on here that I've read and some that are on the ever growing TBR list. I've to know, was 12 Sharp by Evanovich good? I read a bunch of the Stephanie Plum novels but got a bit tired of them aroundn 9. I think Evanovich has great humor and I always laugh but just wish she'd change things up a bit.

haha! Thanks - I read a lot more than expected this year.

I thought 12 Sharp was good, keep in mind that it is usually a year between Plum books for me - so I enjoyed having another Stephanie story. I will admit that I didn't think 10 and 11 was as good as the others in the series, but I thought 12 was fine.
