50 Book Challenge – 50% Completed!

So, fellow 50 Book Challenge (or Goodreads Reading Challenge) participants, we’re halfway through the challenge!

I challenged myself to read 72 books this year (more than in 2010, less than 2011). I’m currently on my 41st book, so I’m right on track. I’ve really enjoyed the majority of books I’ve read so far, with my favourites being The Fault in Our Stars (of course!), Anna and the French Kiss, And Then There Were None, Amy & Roger’s Epic Detour, and Londoners. I also read The Hunger Games trilogy before the movie release in March (I think it’s the best book-to-movie adaptation I’ve seen). I’m also keeping up with my 2012 Classics Challenge. I’ve read one classic per month this year! My next one will be Fahrenheit 451.

Here’s what I read so far, sorted by the rating I’ve given it:
