54 - 4 stars

Why are there so many Highly rated books (4 stars and above)?
Because, believe it or not - I am very picky with what I read! I only read books that I really think I am going to like. My time is precious, I do not have time to read crappy books, LOL.
So I do not choose to read books that do not look like something I would enjoy. I have no problem turning down books.
Some of my top favorite books were -
Left Neglected - Lisa Genova
Friendship Bread - Darien Gee
Deamonglass - Rachel Hawkins (Hex Hall book)
The Priest's Graveyard - Ted Dekker
Mad Love - Suzanne Selfors
Forgotten - Cat Patrick
Home to Woefield - Susan Juby
The Last Little Blue Envelope - Maureen Johnson
A Discovery of Witches - Deborah Harkness
Some books I am looking forward to in 2012 -
Spell Bound (Hex Hall #3) coming out in Mar
A Discovery of Witches #2 (I believe the name is - Shadow of Night, let me know if I am wrong) coming out in July.
Spells and Stitches (Sugar Maple Series #4) I already have this!!!!! came out in Dec. 2011
Revived - Cat Patrick's new book, coming out in May
