Spring Reading Thing 2012...

As you can see by my many months of no blogs at all, I've been a bit busy.  More than a bit, actually.  The new job of high school principal is more time consuming than I could have ever imagined and graduate school attempted to kick my hind end.  The job is no less time absorbing, but...wait for it...I'M FINISHED WITH GRAD SCHOOL!!!!!  It took seventeen months and every spare minute was dedicated to finishing.  Now, I can get back to reading whatever I want!
That's why I'm really excited about the Spring Reading Thing hosted by Katrina @ Callapidder Days.  I wasn't able to participate in her fall reading challenge, so I've got myself a pretty good list for Spring.  In fact, I've spent so much time looking for books to read I could have read many of them already. 

I always look forward to this challenge and seeing what everyone else is reading.  The reading challenge lasts from March 20th-June 20th.  You should join the fun.  There's no pressure and just enough accountability.  Hopefully the books I've chosen are great.  I'll let you know in June.
The Fault In Our Stars by John Green
A Red Herring Without Mustard by Alan Bradley (3rd in the series--very delightfully British)
Between Shades of Gray by Ruta Sepetys
The Peach Keeper by Sarah Addison Allen
Miss Peregrine's Home For Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs
Defending Jacob by William Landay

Insurgent by Veronica Roth (comes out May 1st--the sequel to Divergent--Can't Wait!!!)
Madame Tussaud by Michelle Moran
The Passage by Justin Cronin

The 19th Wife by David Ebershoff
