I'm ultra late in joining this thread (New tfs member! Long-timer lurker, then finally joined a couple months ago, yay), and this year has been my worst re. reading. I used to read voraciously, not sure what happened (stress and study and lack of inspiration I guess?).

Anyway I'm going to list the books I've read this year here, and try and read more by the end of the year. I feel like I've been in such a rut, hopefully this can help snap me out of it.

1. Norwegian Wood by Murakami
2. Grace: A Memoir by Grace Coddington
3. The Dark Legacy of Shannara, Bk 1: The Wards of Faerie by Terry Brooks
4. The Dark Legacy of Shannara, Bk 2: Bloodfire Quest by Terry Brooks
5. Wired: The Short Life and Fast Times of John Belushi by Bob Woodward
6. 1Q84 by Murakami
7. Unbearable Lightness by Portia de Rossi
8. The Vogue Factor by Kirstie Clements (Just finished reading)
