What I've Been Reading: 2012 Edition

Last year I only posted my reading through April.  I thought I'd just quickly chronicle here my reading for the remainder of 2012. I didn't set myself any reading goals for the year--instead just reading at whim. Though there were a few themes that emerged: lots of YA reading (thanks to recommendations from my friend Rebecca), several books about polygamy, and some interesting non-fiction reading. The  year's total only reached 70 books, much fewer than last 2011s total of over 100, but it is what it is. I read and that's what is important.
