My list for books I've finished from December 25th, 2009 to December 25th 2010.

1. If I Ran the Circus by Dr. Seuss 64 pages (read b/c it was at Kohl's and it was $5 and it was a Seuss book I never read.)

2. Odd and the Frost Giants by Neil Gaiman 117 pages (read b/c it was on Carole Barrowmans Perfect Pairings Blog entry.)

3. Alices Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll 116 pages (read b/c it was at the checkout in the grocery store. Opinion, I think that Lewis Carroll was quite a bit screwed up in the head, and possibly a pedo, as some of the research about him claims. But overall, the book was cute, and I can see why people call it a classic but it most definitely wasn't a favorite of mine.)

4. Dragonsong by Anne McCaffrey 202 pages (read because it was the optional book in the wriye readers choice. Good book, so engrossing and I just had to keep reading. I am no contemplating reading all the Dragon books by her and her son. I guess it just bothered me a bit to have the female forbidden to play music, as a person who LOVES music, it just grated me the wrong way.)

5. Magic Tree House #33 Carnival at Candlelight by Mary Pop Osborne 109 pages I may be 27, but this kiddie series, I enjoy just because I love seeing how the author writes the children's excitement for exploring new places, and also they technically time travel through a tree house, what's not to like about that?

6. Bridget Jones's Diary by Helen Fielding 271 pages I read it because I was working on a Torchwood fan fic that I never finished.

7. An Unearthly Child, A Doctor Who Novel by Terrance Dicks 89 pages I've accumulated a ton of DW PDFs, so my goal is to read them all. Someday. Starting with the first doctor and moving my way on up.

8. Magic Tree House #38 Monday with a Mad Genius by Mary Pope Osborne 110 pages

9. The Dragon of Lonley Island by Rebecca Rupp 160 pages It was OK. Yes most things in the kids, YA section still make me want to go read the entire section of the library. I liked it, there was a good story there, but the first few chapters were rather painful to read, you can tell the author has a technical writing background, and the need to explain everything was very clear. Later on it got better the less explaining she did and focused more on the dragon and the siblings that find it, and the stories the dragon tells to the siblings.

10. Magic Tree House #29 Christmas in Camelot by Mary Pope Osborne 115 pages

11. Magic Tree House #9 Dolphins at Daybreak by Mary Pope Osborne 67 pages

12. Magic Tree House #10 Ghost Town at Sundown by Mary Pope Osborne 75 pages

13. Tigers and Devils by Sean Kennedy 360 pages [livejournal.com profile] stargazer60 told me about this one, and I borrowed it from her and read the whole thing in about 9 hours if that. I immediately went and bought my own copy.

14. Two Steps Up by Sean Kennedy 23 pages This was one of the little novella thingies he wrote, and it was completely adorable.

15. Tigers and Devils: Chicken Soup for the Soul and All that Crap by Sean Kennedy 9 pages This was a little additional chapter thing on Sean's website. Again completely adorable in relation to Tigers and Devils.

16. When Work is Pleasure by Alix Bekins 132 pages This one had been on my Dreamspinner Press wishlist for a while, so I just bought it. I thought it was cute, and entertaining.

17. The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams 216 pages Still undecided about it. I liked it. Just didn't live up to all the hype that's been spewed about it over the years. Don't get me wrong, I'll probably still read the rest of the series just because. But yeah, didn't do it for me.

18. Australian Christmas by Sean Kennedy 26 pages He's quickly becoming my fav m/m author.

19. Bookstore Lore: The Stupidest Questions ever asked in a book store by Various 66 pages (iBooks on my iPod). Thought it would be humorous. It was, the questions that some people asked, wow.

20. The Hottie Next Door by Various Authors 199 pages Ok, so I was looking for some smut and got it, quite interesting, how one of the stories ends up with a murder though, not expecting that, and I really thought that all 3 of the stories in there could have been a lot longer to satisfy everything (smut and plot).

21. Heidi by Johanna Spyri 352 pages So on Carole Barrowman's Facebook page there's a What are you reading discussion. This classic came up a few times. I really liked it, and am wondering why I never got to read this as a kid.

22. Gerald McBoingBoing by Dr. Seuss 27 pages in my quest to read some of the Dr. Seuss books I've never read. I think I've seen this one as a series before. It had talked about it being a TV show or a little movie or something, and I kind of remember seeing something like that when I was a kid.

23. Magic Tree House #23 Twister on Tuesday by Mary Pop Osborne 73 pages Cute and I just really like this kids series. You can read them in any order and not worry about it.

24. Magic Tree House #42 A Good Night for Ghosts by Mary Pope Osborne 112 pages I liked this one because it was about Louis Armstrong. I mean hello music, and me yeah. I was going to read it no matter.

25. Troll's Eye View: A Book of Villainous Tales by Various Authors 200 pages Fairy Tales from the villains point of view. Honestly I wish there were more of these. And in a form with the traditional tale first and then the other POV.

26. How to Train your Dragon Book 1 by Cressida Cowell 214 pages I've heard people talk about these so I bought it. I thought it was absolutely adorable.

27. Shutterbug Follies: A Graphic Novel by Jason Little 153 pages Like the title, it's a graphic novel (ie like a comic book type stuff for people who don't know what a graphic novel is). I thought it was pretty decent. Well written, could do without the random drawn tit shots, but it's a man writing it so I'm not surprised. It ended up being a murder mystery novel and I was really intrigued by the end.

28. Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan 377 pages Had heard this series was good. Caved and bought it. I'm hooked.

29. Love That Dog by Sharon Creech 86 pages Nice book with poetry by a boy who is afraid to write poetry. Bawled my freaking eyes out because he writes a poem about his dog who passed away. So not the book I need to read after the crappy month of August I had.

30. Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Sea of Monsters by Rick Riordan 279 pages Book 2 in the Percy Jackson series. A lot shorter than book 1, so it was a quick read, but still just as action packed as the first.

31. Winnie the Pooh by A.A. Milne 364 pages on iBooks on iPod Touch Basically read it because it was free on iBooks. And I'm all about the free eBooks, since I'd rather pay the same price to have a physical copy of a book instead of some computer file. But book wise it's just one of those good children's books that you don't mind re-reading or reading, and in it you can see where they got the basis of some of the children's shows like The House at Pooh Corner.

32. The Strange Case of Origami Yoda by Tom Angleberger 141 pages Yes the only reason I bought the book is because it had Yoda on the cover, albeit in origami form. It was a cute story, geared towards kids, but I do look forward to the sequel.

33. Dragonbreath by Ursula Vernon 153 pages Yes I judge a book by it's cover. I thought the drawings on the cover were cute. Then when I get the book, I enjoy the fact that its a combination story and comic-y feel.

34. Dragonbreath: Attack of the Ninja Frogs by Ursula Vernon 206 pages Sequel to Dragonbreath, just as cute, and come on, it's got Ninja frogs in it.

35. Dragonbreath: Curse of the Were-Weiner by Ursula Vernon 204 pages Ok, so this title was probably the reason I got all 3 books out.

36. Magic Tree House #28 High Tide in Hawaii by Mary Pope Osborne 76 pages I'm trying to read through this whole series, one thing I like about it, even though it's for kids, is that it's a series, but you don't have to read it in order. They each stand alone.

37. Magic Tree House #6 Hour of the Olympics by Mary Pop Osborne 75 pages

38. Ask Graham by Graham Norton 250 pages So Graham Norton Writes and advice column. Kind of cool, and honestly it makes sense. He doesn't beat around the bush and says it like it is. Some of it is brutally honest, but I think those people needed to hear that.

39. Magic Tree House #34 Season of the Sandstorms by Mary Pope Osborne 109 pages

40. The Red Blazer Girls: The Vanishing Violin by Michael D. Beil 256 pages Yes, I bought the book because Violin was in the cover. It ended up being a pretty good book. I'm not a fan of uber big mysteries, and yes I know it's geared towards late elementary school kids, but this was my cup of tea, nothing violent, just fun, good clues, that you could even do on your own.

41. Door Prize by Lynn LaFleur 18 pages A Naughty Nooner from Ellora's Cave. It was free. And kind of hot. Wished it was more than 18 pages.

42. Diary of a Wimpy Kid by Jeff Kinney 217 pages Since I had watched part of the movie with no sound on the way to London (I refused to pay for headphones), I thought the movie was kind of blah, so I wanted to see if the book was better. The book was definitely better, and I'm thinking they should have made it like an animated movie or something when making it into a movie.

43. Iced by Diane Adams 18 pages A dreamspinner press ebook. It was quite lovely. *fans self*

My list is starting on Dec. 25, 2008 and ending on Dec. 25, 2009.

These are Books I read. If this was books I want, the list would be a mile long and I think the 10,000 word limit on an entry would have to be used. :-P

Here Be the List of Books )
