Remember 2010? Personally, I've moved on to 2011 and I'm not looking back but here is my last book list from December 2010. I read 60 books this year. Good for me!
Johhny Tremain by Esther Forbes
Sam had to read this for his History class so I got it from the library and read it too. Or I should say, "instead," since he still hasn't read it. Watching the movie in class demotivated him somewhat because after you've seen the movie, why would you read the book? I kind of agree with this--you should read the book before you watch the movie. I hate having the endings spoiled. This is a good book. I like it.
The Weed that Strings the Hangman's Bag by Alan Bradley
This book is pretty delightful. It was recommended to me by a lot of you and I appreciate the suggestions. I'll have to go back and read The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie. It's always checked out so I started with this one. It should be a great series.
The Book of Fate by Brad Meltzer
I've been destined to read a Brad Melzter book since I became infatuated with his celebrity playlist on iTunes. He has a show on the History Channel now that I like to watch. Anyway, this book was compelling and John-Grishamy. Brad Meltzer seems pretty cool.
Cassette From My Ex Edited by Jason Bitner
Christian got me all the books that have been sitting in my Amazon Shopping Cart for over a year now. I store them there so I will remember what I want to read. It was a very thoughtful gift. This was one of them and it is a treat to read. It's a bunch of short essays on mix tapes--with the playlists included.
The Little Black Book of Style by Nina Garcia
This reminds that I also read (but forgot to write down--which means I read 61 books this year, but who's counting?) The One Hundred by Nina Garcia also.
I love Nina. She's really rich. I'm going to spend the rest of my life acquiring my own one hundered wardrobe essentials. I already have some of them. Nina really hates terry cloth robes. I don't get that. But I'll do whatever she says. Nina was considered a Colombian princess when she came to the United States to go to boarding school. Can you imagine? She still likes to make fun of duck boots.
Favorite book of 2010? I'm always looking for recommendations.
