2010 Review!

How sad that I haven’t updated my blog in 6 months! It’s been just over 3 years since I started this blog. I love book blogging, but obviously I’m not able to keep up with it and a one year old (and another on the way!).

I’ve still been keeping track of my books, just not on here. So here’s my 2010 review!

Challenges I participated in:
Young Adult Challenge (finished 2 of 12)
TBR Challenge (finished 1 of 12)
What’s in a Name? Challenge (finished 1 of 6)
First in a Series Mini Challenge (finished 5 of 6)
Read Your Name Challenge (finished 2 of 6)

My favorites (in the order I read them):
Five Quarters of the Orange by: Joanne Harris

The Help by: Kathryn Stockett
Gentlemen and Players by: Joanne Harris
Mockingjay by: Suzanne Collins
The Knife of Never Letting Go by: Patrick Ness

# of books I read in 2010:
30 (down from 81 in 2007, 48 in 2008, and 38 in 2009) For the record, there’s a possibility I missed some that I read. For awhile I wasn’t keeping track and went back and added to my list. But unfortunately this is close enough. 😦

Least favorite: Thankfully all of the books I read this year weren’t so bad. If I had to choose I’d pick On Becoming Babywise II by: Gary Ezzo and Robert Bucknam. It’s a non-fiction book and while not horrible, it was kind of pointless since it doesn’t have much to say that the first book doesn’t already make clear. Also, it’s horribly written (ever heard of hiring a proofreader!?).

Repeated authors:
Joanne Harris (2)

Helen Fielding (2)
Cornelia Funke (2)
Kelley Armstrong (2)
Robert Bucknam/Gary Ezzo (2)

  1. Congratulations for the baby on the way, Andrea! And don't feel too badly about your total, when my two were quite little I had a couple of years with totals like that also – that's what made me determined to start reading more again, when I realized how much it had dropped. One day you will find the time, I promise! meanwhile enjoy both books and the children. I just received The Help for Christmas, I'm looking forward to reading it, and it's lovely to see it on your list.

    Happy New Year, Andrea!
