Year in Reading
Copying off Eric’s http://ericshonkwiler.com/2009/12/the-year-in-reading/ I’ve decided to do my own list. I don’t know how to remember all these…
– All 4 Twilight books by Stephenie Meyer. Yes, I did it.
– Reread Harry Potter 7 to reaffirm that YA can be good.
– War & Peace by Tolstoy. Everything it is supposed to be.
– Lots of law school books and things
– How I Became A Famous Author by Steve Hely. Hilarious. I wrote a review here: https://laurenleto.wordpress.com/2009/09/24/steve-hely/
– Man In Full by Tom Wolfe. Wolfe is one of the best authors at creeping up on you, starting out slowly then somehow (before you know it) they have your whole head wrapped into the story and you can’t stop reading.
– Olive Kitteridge by Elizabeth Strout. Simple yet complicated. I loved it.
– Losing Mum and Pop by Christopher Buckley. Hated it.
– A Girl Named Zippy by Haven Kimmel. Cute, easy.
– Bridge of Sighs by Richard Russo. One of my new favorite authors thanks to Erin Malone.
– The New Kings of Nonfiction compiled by Ira Glass. Interesting and improves my trivia knowledge. Always a plus.
– The Physick Book of Deliverance Dane by Katherine Howe. I can’t wait for the sequel.
– In The Woods and The Likeness by Tana French. Review here: https://laurenleto.wordpress.com/2009/12/07/tana-french/
– God is Not Great by Christopher Hitchens. Frightening.
– Accidental Billionaires by Ben Mezrich. Boring and sloppily compiled.
– Finger Lickin’ Fifteen, Fearless Fourteen, Plum Lucky by Janet Evanovich. Crack.
– Her Fearless Symmetry and The Time-Traveler’s Wife by Audrey Niffenegger. Eh.
– Wonder Boys and The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay by Michael Chabon. Beautiful, perfect, etc.
– American Wife by Curtis Sittenfeld. Full, kept me entertained.
– Pride & Prejudice by Jane Austen. Eh.
– Beat the Reaper by Josh Bazell. So far, so good (in the middle of reading it).
– Ten million TFLN texts and our book
I can’t think of any more…a light year because of law school. Planning on heavier stuff in the next year (some Proust on the Christmas list).
