Books I Reviewed in 2012

(Personally I went through quite a few changes in 2012; one being that I began to read books my Sony E-Reader, and then I discovered Goodreads Firstreads where I became blessed with a lot of wonderful reads thus I also began reviewing non-fiction on this blog. Fun fact: I won my Sony E-Reader a year or two ago from 2012 and haven't used it in this whole time. I won it without even trying...)
