I Got the Literary Blues (And They're Awesome)

Taking a look at my 2012 "read" shelf on GoodReads, I noticed something for the first time... I've got a serious case of the blues.

Four of the books on this list got a "5/5" rating from me... which is almost unheard of. 

Is reading only books of a certain color some type of epic reading challenge? If so, I think I'm winning...

What are you reading right now? What's next on your list?

Ooh, I should try the color-coded thing! I am reading The Omnivore's Dilemma (something I've been afraid to do for years), and The Kite Runner. No new books for now. But we shall see what comes up. I really want to read The Paris Wife, a fiction from the p.o.v. of Ernest Hemingway's, well, Paris wife.
