So many books I have not read, oh how my fingers itch
I love how you did this post! It was a great idea to share your favorite and least favorite book, plus all the others. What Good is God is on my TBR list.
I saw the same thing somewhere else, just can’t remember where.
I have The Help here on my shelf. I hope I enjoy it as much as you did.
Loved Hotel du Lac – I agree about it being beautifully written. I think that’s true of most Anita Brookner novels, although they can be a little depressing.
Hope you have another great year of reading in 2011!
This is the first of hers I’ve read, but I did love the writing. I’ll have to read more of hers.
Happy New Year! I’ve heard only great things about The Help.
That is a great way to look back on your reading.
Happy New Year and I wish you all the best in 2011!
I haven’t read any of the books you’ve listed but I do have The Help in my TBR. Happy reading in 2011!
I confess… i still have yet to crack open my Heyer books… yes my resolution is to read one for 2011!
Great list and enjoyed reading what you thoughts were brillant and dim moments of 2010 reads.
Glad to hear you often recommend The Help, as it’s on my list of books to read this year!
