Linda`s reading challenge 2012 - results

Leseåret 2012 er over og det er på tide å se tilbake på resultatene.
Her er det jeg skrev i januar i fjor:


"I 2011 slo jeg lesemålet mitt på 24 bøker med to, og endte året med 26 bøker. I år må jeg jo selvsagt slå dette og setter derfor målet for 2012 til hele 36 bøker (det tilsvarer 3 bøker i måneden). Jeg skal også prøve å være litt mer strukturert når det kommer til hva jeg skal lese (selv om det helt sikkert kommer opp bøker som "bare må snike i køen") og skal prøve å lese litt mer på tvers av sjangere.


Delmål:
Minst tre av bøkene skal være biografier.
Minst tre av bøkene skal være skrevet av Nobelvinnere.
Minst tre av bøkene skal være skrevet av forfattere jeg aldri har lest noe av før.
Minst tre av bøkene skal være klassikere.
Jeg skal lese bøker skrevet av forfattere fra alle verdensdeler."

Resultater:
Fjorårets mål var på 36 bøker og med veldig lite lesing de siste to månedene ble dette veldig vanskelig. Jeg klarte å hente meg inn litt i romjulen med fire bøker, men det holdt desverre ikke. Jeg endte på 33 leste bøker i 2012.

Delmål 1 - minst tre av bøkene skal være biografier
- Mission accomplished

Det ble 6 biografier i 2012 - Steve Jobs av Walter Isaacson, By invitation only - how we built Gilt and changed the way millions shop av Alexis Maybank og Alexndra Wilkis-Wilson, Kon-Tiki av Thor Heyerdahl, Bossypants av Tina Fey, Harvests of joy - how the good life became great business av Robert Mondavi, Mammas svik av Anne-Britt Harsem

Delmål 2 - Minst tre av bøkene skal være skrevet av Nobelvinnere - Mission epic fail
Ikke en eneste bok skrevet av en Nobelvinner - bedre lykke neste gang...

Delmål 3 - Minst tre av bøkene skal være skrevet av forfattere jeg aldri har lest noe av før - Mission accomplished
Jeg har blitt kjent med hele 21 nye forfattere i år (noen av bøkene har flere forfattere).

Delmål 4 - Minst tre av bøkene skal være klassikere - Mission fail
Ingen klassikere i år. Pinlig. Det skal sies at jeg jobber med Anna Karenina, men den må overføres til 2013.

Delmål 5 - Jeg skal lese bøker skrevet av forfattere fra alle verdensdeler - Mission fail

Kun europeiske og amerikanske forfattere. Jeg må ærlig innrømme at jeg faktisk glemte dette delmålet:-O

Jaja, man må jo ha noe å jobbe mot må man ikke?

Her er hvertfall listen over bøkene jeg har lest i år (i leserekkefølge):


1.

The Hunger Games (The Hunger Games, #1)The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Wow! Couldn`t put it down! It`s been a while since I`ve read a book like this in one sitting. Have to start the second one now:)

Steve JobsSteve Jobs by Walter Isaacson
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Wow! I really feel like Walter Isaacson portrayed the real Steve Jobs. The gloves were off. Brilliantly written and Steve Jobs is still one of my biggest heroes.

The Winter Ghosts. Kate MosseThe Winter Ghosts. Kate Mosse by Kate Mosse
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The first page sucked me in and I literally felt like I read the whole book from cover to cover in one breath. Mosse writes so beautifully it almost hurts. Please light some candles, cuddle under a blanket with a cup of tea and read this book. You will not be sorry!

A Company of SwansA Company of Swans by Eva Ibbotson
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

A good read (when I finally got into it). I liked the way I could almost smell the flowers and feel the sweltering heat of the Amazon. I will definitely pick up another book by this author if I ever come across one:)

Kon-TikiKon-Tiki by Thor Heyerdahl
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is a must read. Heyerdahl makes me proud to be a Norwegian and I absolutely love the way even though there is no real action the story is NEVER boring.

Shadow of Night (All Souls Trilogy, #2)Shadow of Night by Deborah Harkness
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I read A Discovery of Witches last fall after being pointed in the right direction at my local store here in Norway.

Read it. Loved it. Couldn`t wait for the sequel. Had to wait 9 looong months.

Bought Shadow of Night upon release. Waited for rain. Devoured it. Loved it. Waiting for number three.

I am not a patient person.

Beautiful Darkness (Caster Chronicles, #2)Beautiful Darkness by Kami Garcia

Still not so into these characters. Something is making me turn the page (or in my case scroll the page on my iPad), but I don`t really know what it is...

Wow! This is one of the best books I have read all year. The characters are wonderful and the plot is right up my alley. Historical fiction with a twist of romance = perfection!

Mammas svik: Datterens gripende historie fra Alvdal-saken og GjerdrumMammas svik: Datterens gripende historie fra Alvdal-saken og Gjerdrum by Anne-Britt Harsem
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Årets siste bok på årets siste dag ble en enormt sterk leseopplevelse. At dette har skjedd i kommunen min mann er fra er uforståelig og vanvittig. Hjertet mitt blør for disse stakkars barna.
