Books Read in 2011

I didn’t read as many books as I wanted to last year, but I’m blaming that on all the fantastic blogs I’ve been keeping up with.

Here are the books I read last year. If I didn’t write a review of the book, then it links to GoodReads.

      How did you like it? I saw the movie a million years ago (LOVE Garbo), but I find the book is a bit of a struggle to get into.

        It’s a bit of a struggle. I like books like that, so it worked for me. Reminded me of Fathers and Sons, and Of Human Bondage, where the author just totally gets into the gnat’s ass detail of “life”.

        I found myself hating Anna and loving Levin (I think that was his name). It was a good book with some really awesome insights and writing. I can’t share with you one of the more memorable passages I got from it because you’re probably not far enough into it for it not to be spoiler material.

        It was worth the read, in my opinion.

    I think you should review Sleepwalk With Me or Waiting for your guest blog.

    Books to read: Empty Arms by Erika Liodice and Sweet Like Sugar by Wayne Hoffman.

    A Wrinkle in Time is a really good book. You should finish it…

    I don’t have any other suggestions. . I am trying to get my ‘must read’ book list for this year together.

    I actually just picked up 6 books from the library yesterday. . .

    I set a low goal this year, so that I don’t feel so bad if I don’t actually reach said goal. Heh.

    H is reading A Wrinkle in Time. She has been working on it on and off for awhile now.

    I’m starting The Hunger Games next week. I’ve heard really good things about it.

      I’ve heard a lot about the Hunger Games lately. I might have to start on those after I get through the Dragon Tattoo books.
