This year I wasn't able to physically travel the world, but my reading took me to many different countries, time periods, perspectives, and worlds. This is my year in books.
January - Catcher in the Rye (loved it)
February - This Boy's Life, a memoir
The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe (Loved it! Can you believe I had never read it?!?)
1984 (thoroughly enjoyed)
March - The Genesis Code (hated it)
Don't Let's Go to the Dogs Tonight (tragic, yet beautiful)
May - Uncle Tom's Cabin (Adored it!)
Hands of My Father (memoir of a boy growing up with deaf parents - recommended if interested)
June - The Three Musketeers (Possibly favorite book of the year - fun summer read)
July - Slaughter-House Five
August - The Count of Monte Cristo (enjoyed it, but not as much as musketeers)
September - The Kite Runner (Loved it!)
A Thousand Splendid Suns
Catch-22 (I would recommend it)
The Poisonwood Bible (another good one)
December - The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (murder mysteries aren't my thang- but it was well written)
The Painter from Shanghai
I read so many good ones this year, it's hard to pick a favorite....
I looked through the list of 1001 books you should read before you die, and I had only read 23 of them. My only "New Years Resolution" is to up that number, if only by 1 in this next year.
Does anyone have any suggestions for reading this next year?
