Okay, that's a LOT of YA. This, more than any before, was the year of YA reading. Clearly I'm meant to be writing some of this. We'll see if that happens.

94 books

59 YA; 7 nonfiction; 1 single straight up litfic.

53 authors: 32 women/21 men; 19 writers of color (as far as I know.)

I'll be straight witcha: this year's reading was almost all escapism. I didn't try to see where the art form was going, how adult fiction is experimenting or developing. I read for pleasure and escape only. And I'm fine with it; 2011 was a rough year for me and I needed my escapism.

But I am looking forward to getting back to other kinds of reading in 2011.
