Booking Through Thursday
It’s a week or two later than you’d expect, and it may be almost a trite question, but … what were your favorite books from 2008?
Ok, this year was not nearly as good for me reading wise as it was last year. I read 130 books last year, this year only 93. Looking back on my list I don't believe I had any real standouts! I don't think I rated a single book a 5 which is weird because there are several that really stand out. Some of my favorites from this year are:
1. It's All About Him by Denise Jackson
2. Kabul Beauty School by Deborah Rodriguez
3. Life of Pi by Yann Martel
4. The Necklace by Cheryl Jarvis
5. Fearless Fourteen by Janet Evanovich
6. The Twilight Series by Stephanie Meyer
Notice that of those listed above 3 are Non-fiction. It was a good year for Non-fiction, which is not normally what I tend to gravitate toward. But I am looking forward to reading more NF in the New Year. I did read the Heretic's Daughter about the Salem Witch Trials and would definately like to read some NF on that. I will have to see what I can find!
Overall, a decent reading year (since I didn't really read for almost 2 months!) and hopefully a better one this year!
What have you been reading?
