2010 Reading Journal

This is what I have read for the year (posting it so I can archive it in preparation for next year!). It’s nowhere near as much as the previous years, but I read quite a few good books so I feel there’s far more quality there compared to quantity and maybe that’s more important.

I’ve rated them for everyone’s benefit from 1-5 hearts and I’ve linked the books to reviews if I’ve reviewed them.

  1. Hello Bonnie!
    That is an impressive list. I was happy to find another blogger who has read and enjoyed The Painted Man (Warded Man in my country).

    I read your original post about the book, and we both liked many of the same things about it. It’s not at all in my usual genre, but I’ve been recommending this book to friends all over too. The Desert Spear will be one of my first reads in the new year…

    • Hi Jay,

      Thanks! Thanks for the like too, when it comes to the review. It’s funny, it must just be one of those books because when I read it the first time I was going around telling people to read it and even trying to find reasons to recommend it to people who don’t read that sort of genre. I hope you enjoy Desert Spear, I’m curious to know what you think about it.
