Books Read in 2010

I haven't posted anything on my poor blog in ages, and it's time I put out something to anyone who might still want to read it. 

I've been slowing down lately, in the quiet of the new year, and today I thought to myself, "Self, what did you read this year?" One of my few well-kept habits is to record books I read.  Here they are. Some were re-reads of favorites, some were ho-hum, some were wonderful surprises, and some I even got around to reviewing.

Hopefully more soon!  I really have missed blogging.  What sort of posts would you like to see here in the future?  (And what really good book should I read this year?)


  1. Hello! Nice to see you posting again!

    Have you read Till We Have Faces before? I'm curious to know what you thought of it; I really, really loved it myself, but it's one of those that people either love or hate. I've never read Rachel Starr Thomson's books, but they look very good from your reviews.

    I love reading bookish posts. ^.^

  2. Thanks for the comment, Abigail! I have read Till We Have Faces, twice now, and I love it, too! Even though it's quite strange, and rather depressing because of Orual's point of view, it's incredibly encouraging and insightful by the end. :-) I should do a more in-depth review of it sometimes, but if you're interested, Peter Kreeft has a great talk on the book here:

    I'll remember I have a fan of bookish posts! :-D
