What I Read Last Week

I just realized the date - so Happy 12/12/12! That's pretty cool!

I only finished one book last week, mainly because the book I'm currently reading was a mistake from the get-go, but I'm too stubborn to stop reading it (Note – if you've never read a book from the author and you are handed a free copy of the third book in a series, do not read it. I'll have more to say next week, I'm sure.). Anywhooo, here's what I read last week:

Dec 6: "Deliver Me From Darkness" by Tes Hilaire. Yay! A freebee book paid off. I found another author to follow (like I needed one, but who cares!). Blurb: He had once been a warrior of the Light, one of the revered Paladin. A protector. But now he lives in darkness, and the shadows are his sanctuary. Every day is a struggle to overcome the bloodlust. Especially the day Karissa shows up on his doorstep. She is light and bright and everything beautiful – despite her scratches and torn clothes. Every creature of the night is after her. So is every male Paladin. Because Karissa is the last female of their kind. But she is his. He may not have a soul, but he can't deny his heart. This was one of those books where I HAD to put it down or I'd never get any writing done. I loved it that much! I gave it 5 stars on Goodreads.
I had upped my goal on Goodreads back in September (from 55 to 80 books), and this book reached that goal. Don't know how many more I'll get read in the few weeks left of the year, so I'm not going to adjust it again. Do you read more or less during the holidays? Or does it stay pretty constant year-round?

I'm headed for Kentucky again today for another nice trip with the husband and hoping to get a lot of editing done. At least I got my Christmas shopping finished, so it's less guilt I'll be free of anyway!

I haven't read much fiction at all in the past year. Yikes. I was going to post about that but then I forgot. Thanks for the reminder.
