Never posted my list. Actually just made a list a few minutes ago. Quite proud of my 2013 so far.. but more so that I'm reading a book a week. Gonna aim for like 50 by the end of the year. Taking literature classes definitely helps though.

1.Neverwhere - Neil Gaiman
2. Catching Fire - Suzanne Collins
3. The Giver - Lois Lowry
4. Perks of Being a Wallflower - Stephen Chbosky
5. The Taming of the Shrew - William Shakespeare
7. The Hunger Games - Suzanne Collins (reread for class)
8. Lysistrata - Aristophanes
9. Enrique's Journey - Sonia Nazario
10. Gathering Blue - Lois Lowry
11. The Higher Power of Lucky - Susan Patron

Updated. Both novels were Young Adult and both were extremely quick, accessible reads. Gathering Blue follows up on the Giver with a brand new society and a reimagining of the future. The novel is good but is screaming for a sequel. The Higher Power of Lucky is, in parts, funny, light hearted and endearing. At other times it is surprising mature and, well, sad. Definitely something I would recommend for a quick night's read.

2.) The Hellbound Heart - Clive Barker
3.) The Exorcist - William Peter Blatty
4.) Legion - William Peter Blatty
5.) House Of Leaves - Mark Z. Danielweski
6.) The Terror - Dan Simmons

Loved both...ordered about 4 books each from Straub and Simmons so there will probably be a lot of those.

UPDATE:

Here's my Goodreads profile.

Currently Reading: Woken Furies - Richard K. Morgan

January
1. The Lost Art - Simon Morden
2. The A-Men - John Trevillian
February
3. The Restraint of Beasts - Magnus Mills
4. Pure - Juliana Baggott
March
5. Annals of the Black Company - Glen Cook
6. Low Town - Daniel Polansky
7. The Angel's Game - Carlos Ruiz Zafón
8. Broken Angels - Richard K. Morgan

I can't get over how great Richard K. Morgan's books are. Kinda dark, but so entertaining. His fantasy and his sci-fi stuff both have really rich world-building, but there's zero bogging down because he writes in pulp style—pared-down and quick. And there's a heavier focus on character than setting.

Love his short stories, hate his novels. "Hills like White Elephants," "Clean Well-Lighted Place" and "The Short Happy Life of Francis Macomber" are among my favorite short stories of all time.
