50 Books in 2012 - November Recap

See the recaps of my 50 books in 2012 challenge here:

January | February | March | April | May | June | July | August | September | October

Between finishing up fall sessions, shooting my second to last wedding of 2012 and getting into the holiday spirit, I didn't have too much time to read in November.

In November, I added to more books to my completed list, making my 2012 total 62 books.

I read:

Wicked Appetite by Janet Evanovich

This book is by the same author of the Stephanie Plum series, of which I read all 18 books in the series this year. This is a new series from Janet, and I wasn't sure I'd like it, since I am completely obsessed with the Stephanie Plum series. I'm weird like that; if I love a character and have just spent months reading every book written in the series, I have a hard time liking new books with different characters, especially written by the same author. I am loyal like that.

I didn't need to worry though. I loved this book too, and Lizzy and Diesel are my new favorite maybe-couple.

Or they will be until there are more books about Lula, Stephanie, Ranger and Joe...

Honolulu by Alan Brennert

This book is the second book by Alan Brennert, who wrote Molokai [which I read earlier this year in August.] 

It tells the story of a Korean girl in the late 1800's/early 1900's who, in search of personal freedoms, a new adventure, and the hopes of being able to go to school, goes to Hawaii as a picture bride. Basically, a mail order bride for other Korean men who were living and working in Hawaii.

Honolulu tells the story of this picture bride and her life in Hawaii. It was eye opening, incredibly interesting, and fun for me to read about Hawaii and especially Honolulu before it became the tourism mecca that it is today.


There is only one more month's recap left of my 2012 reading goal. 

Have you read anything amazing lately? I made another reading goal for 2013, so I'd love to hear what is on your reading list lately.


  1. I'm reading "Sing You Home" by Jodi Picoult. So far, I'm loving it!

  2. Oh, Jodi Picoult! My sister loves her! Her books regularly tug on the heart strings, right?
