I have always been a voracious reader.
Matthew says I am happier when I am reading.
He is probably right.
So I have decided to keep track of all the books that I read in 2010.
I will update this post throughout the year and will keep the link on my side bar.
The books will be listed chronologically, with the most recently read on the top.
- The Midwife: A Memoir of Birth, Joy, and Hard Times – LOVED this book. Seriously, amazing. READ IT! (August 2010)
- The Prodigal God: Recovering the Heart of the Christian Faith – Recent book club book. Inspired me to dig deeper into Jesus’s parables. (August 2010)
- Burning Bright – I didn’t quite finish this book, but I am still putting it on the list because I almost finished it. I normally love Tracy Chevalier, but this book wasn’t her best… I wouldn’t recommend it. (June 2010)
- Strong Women, Soft Hearts: The latest Bloom Book Club book – a great, challenging book that all women should read (June 2010)
- The Heretic’s Daughter: An great historical fiction book about the Salem Witch trials. Totally captivating. (June 2010)
- The Middle Place: An easy read. I loved the author’s voice and I so related to being in the “middle place” (May 2010)
- Carry You: My dear friend Angie’s book tells her story of carrying her daughter Audrey. A beautiful book that all should read. (April 2010)
- The Book Thief: I listened to all of you and bought this book right away. It was a great read, though I thought it was a little long. It was perfect for plane rides and layovers. (March 2010)
- The Blue Cotton Gown: A Midwife’s Memoir: I loved this book. I couldn’t put it down. I read it in three days. (March 2010)
- The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society (Random House Reader’s Circle): This book took me a while to get into, but I couldn’t put it down by the end. I think it is one of those books you have to read in long stretches of time to keep up with the characters, because there are many.
- The Blue Star: A Novel: Though this book has won a lot of awards and accolades, I thought it was a little boring. I wouldn’t really recommend it.
- The Blood of Flowers: A Novel: This book is one of the best historical fiction books I have ever read. (Historical fiction is my favorite genre of books)
- Sarah’s Key: This book takes place today and during World War II. I loved the way the two stories wove together. Great, easy read.
- The Help: I loved this book.
- Definitely Dead (Sookie Stackhouse, Book 6): This was the last Sookie book that I read. I read one right after the other and was getting tired of them by this one.
I hope you will continue to comment with books you are reading so that I will have a good list to go to when I need a book to read!
