Enjoy your fireside reads with a nice glass of wine or hot chocolate.

Recently my favorite social media site, Goodreads.com, started their annual “GoodReads Choice Awards 2012." The Goodreads Awards were the catalyst for me starting this post, as they are inspired by reader's choices. I recommend the following books from the GoodReads 2012 list, have you read them? You may want to add them to your to-read list…
Humor - Where’d You Go Bernadette? This is almost a satire on PTA Parenting and odd families. And, if that sounds appealing, give The Family Fang a try.
Fiction – A Grown Up Kind of Pretty (this would be good for a book club and for any Southern Fiction lover). Lately I have enjoyed Southern fiction writers, perhaps because I have lived in the South?
Historical Fiction - The Flight of Gemma Hardy (a modern retelling of Jane Eyre), The Shoemaker’s Wife (an early 1900s American immigrant story).
Fun-n-lite: Whistlin’ Dixie in a Nor’easter (Southern Princess moves up North with her husband), Off The Menu (A Chef story with recipes)
Books that I haven’t yet read (but that I see often on the book sites that I follow):
The Casual Vacancy, The Secret Keeper, The Snow Child, The Orchardist, The Sisters
Books with Movie Tie-Ins: Life of Pi, Cloud Atlas, Anna Karenina
New Releases: I will try to wait for paperback or perhaps buy on my e-reader…
The End of your life Book club, Mr. Penumbra’s 24 hour bookstore, Some Kind of Fairy Tale
