2012 Book Challenge: December




Before I sum up the 2012 Book Challenge, here are the links of the previous months:


Last month, Steph asked me about my Top 10 books for 2012. So here it goes:



10. The Undomestic Goddess

And here goes my December list:

39. Two Little Girls in Blue by Mary Higgins Clark

- 3-year-old twins Kathy and Kelly were kidnapped in their own home on their birthday, the kidnappers were asking for millions as ransom. The twins' parents cannot pay such ransom since they aren't that rich but the father's company was willing to pay the ransom. When the twins are supposed to be returned, they find only Kelly in the car and a letter saying that the suspect killed Kathy. Twin instinct and maternal instinct will play major roles in this novel as they search for the Pied Piper, who hired the kidnappers to perform the crime. Very interesting and timely read.

40. The Undomestic Goddess by Sophie Kinsella

- Samantha Sweeting works as a lawyer at a top law firm in the country. She works everyday and she barely has time for herself. A huge mistake had her terminated from her job that she rode a train and went to some place. She was mistaken as a housekeeper. She pretends to know housework and learns to do so via Nathaniel's mother. Nathaniel is her employer's gardener, who she started to get attracted to.

She goes back to London to clear her name and her employers and Nathaniel finds out that she isn't actually a housekeeper.

Will she go back to her previous job or be satisfied with her life as a housekeeper, with Nathaniel?

It's a really entertaining read. Made me a realize that we need a break once in a while. 

41. The Best of Chico, Delamar and Gino's Morning Rush Top Ten Book 2

- After the success of the Book 1, The Morning Rush barkada published the Book 2, which I think is as hilarious as the first book. My favorite is the "Ang Mahirap sa Maganda / Panget", "Funny Names" and many  more. It's a very easy and entertaining read that you'd find yourself laughing alone. I can't wait for the next book. 

I'm proud to say that I finished the 2012 Book Challenge (with an excess of 1 book). I'll try to accomplish more this year. 

Which books have you also read in my list? Which ones interest you?:)

    My last finished novel was The Handmaid's Tale. It tells about a fictional religious dynasty that occupied the whole of the US turning most of their customs into old Testament practices. Interesting read. Try it din. You can search Amazon about the full summary. =)

  4. Wow!!! You've managed to read so many books in one year. I wanna do that, too! I've been wanting and meaning to do that for a couple of years now. I used to read lots and lots of books when I was younger, I was really a bookworm, until work and motherhood took up a lot of my time. This is I think my third time to write down READ MORE in my list of New Year's resolutions, only I didn't get to actually do it before. I'm thankful that I'm starting the year right, I am reading more! (Yehey!) Hope I can finish at least 20 books this year (baby steps). :)

    1. An e-book is also counted as a book, MaryJane. :) I also have lots of e-books but I tend to just watch a TV series whenever I'm in front of the PC. :)
