As I get older, it's helpful for me to keep track of the books I've read. I have yet to pick up a book and not remembered reading it, but better safe than sorry!
So here are all of the books I read this year:
The Poisonwood Bible (a reread for me, I've read this many times before)
I'm limiting my favourite list to two, since there are a few contenders for #3 and I can't choose, but you can go back through the links above to see if I liked a book or not.
The Gown by Jennifer Robson
For the past couple of years I've been in the habit of setting out a reading list for myself. However, this year I'm not going to do that. I felt like I was looking for books just for the sake of putting them on my list, and then I didn't even like some of the ones I picked (ahem, Sleeping Car Porter, When we Lost our Heads, and The Beguiling). Instead I'll just stick with picking things off my running list of recommendations based on what's available in our library and what I feel like reading.
