2012 Book List and Reviews.

As part of the Book Chick City challenge, (I’m not really sticking to BCC’s rules of types of books, etc though) I thought I’d add a list of the books I have read or plan to read here as an easy point of reference.

Once I have read a book, I shall review it in a new blog post and link to it on this page.
