Reading List 2011

Ever look through someone’s playlist or CDs to garner information about the owner’s personality? Yeah, don’t assume too much about me from this list. If you looked at the list of books I read in 2010, you’d find all of the Twilight books by Stephenie Meyer and Feminist Fantasies by Phyllis Schlafly. See what I mean? Just keep in mind that books that I read are not necessarily books I endorse. These are just the books I am reading/have read in 2011.

* I read the Harry Potter series for the first time this year. (Well, I read and finished the oft-started first book over the Christmas holidays, so I read the series this year and last year, but who cares?) (Apparently, I do.) I liked them very much. Fantasy isn’t really my genre of choice, so I missed the series when the books first came out. In retrospect, I’m glad that I didn’t read them, if nothing else because it means I have a lot of authority to say, “BITE ME,” to all of the people who think my other blog has something to do with proving Twilight is better than Harry Potter.
