Someone on my LJ friendslist posted a list of all the books she'd read during 2012, and it occurred to me that I can't remember most of the books I've read this year. I know they include the Millennium trilogy, a couple of Alex Riders, several of Robert Muchamore's Cherub and Henderson's Boys series, all seven Harry Potters, Pratchett's Wintersmith and Maskerade, half a dozen random supermarket novels, Stranded by Emily Barr, Room by Emma O'Donoghue, a couple of Sophie Hannah's books, the Hunger Games trilogy and the four "Boy Soldier" books by Andy McNab. Most of these weren't the first reading.

So anyway, I thought I'd start a list for 2013, beginning with the books I finished and started today. Titles with an asterisk are ones I haven't read before. These are going to be in a minority, as I don't get round to going to the library very often and it's difficult to justify spending loads of money on new books. I'm also trying to get rid of stuff rather than adding to it, so I'm reluctant to go to the charity shop because I'll end up coming out with a bagful and there's simply no room for another pile.

We're now in April, and I keep forgetting to update this list. I've got a feeling there's at least half a dozen books I've read over the past month or two that I've completely forgotten to add to the list.

I've just finished it, and it's great, hilarious! I loved the Boogie books too (and I see he's written a couple of others I might have to try and get hold of!)
