Saya mengalami kemajuan dibanding tahun lalu. Di tahun 2012 ini saya berhasil menyelesaikan 100 buku (tahun lalu 90 buku) walaupun dengan usaha keras. Terutama di bulan-bulan akhir sewaktu saya sadar kalau saya sudah ketinggalan 7 buku. Saya langsung ngebut baca buku yang tipis-tipis dan ringan. Dan selesai dengan ngos-ngosan. Tapi reviewnya ketinggalan dua, doh!

Kalau tahun lalu saya maniak historical romance, tahun ini saya maniak fantasi. 17 children fantasy dan 15 young adult fantasy, total 32 buku. Tampaknya saya sedang ingin dibuai dalam dunia tak nyata yang penuh dengan peri, sihir, ksatria berkuda putih. (hoekkk, =.=)

Untuk tahun 2013, saya memasang target lebih sedikit. Hanya 80 buku saja. Soalnya saya mulai merasa kalau kerjaan saya tambah banyak dan saya juga semakin sibuk setiap harinya. Apalagi saya sudah lulus kuliah dan bersiap-siap masuk dunia kerja. (cieeeee...) Entah kenapa saya yakin kalau saya bakal susah menemukan waktu untuk baca. Tapi tetap harus baca atau saya mati. (lebay mode on)

Top 10 best books I read in 2012 (not in order):
1. Dreaming of You by Lisa Kleypas (historical romance)
2. The Iron Knight by Julie Kagawa (young adult fantasy)
3. The Iron Queen by Julie Kagawa (young adult fantasy)
4. The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini (fiction)
5. A Tree Grows in Brooklyn by Betty Smith (classic literature)
6. Genesis by Shienny M. S. (young adult fantasy)
7. Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver (young adult)
8. If I Stay by Gayle Forman (young adult)
9. The Iron King by Julie Kagawa (young adult fantasy)
10. Eon by Alison Goodman (young adult fantasy)

Until next year...
