Books from my original list that I did NOT read (only one!):
Books not on my original list but I read anyway–also linked to my review where applicable:
- Did I finish all the books on my list? Yes, all but one.
- Did I stick to the original plan or change things as I went along? Some of both. I stuck to the plan but, as you have no doubt noticed, I added just a few titles here and there (I think. I didn’t pay too close attention to the dates I completed the books but I’m pretty close.)
- What was my favorite book? Hard to choose. For fiction, I loved (loved!) The Count of Monte Cristo as well as The Hunger Games, So Brave, Young and Handsome, and The Help. Of course, I love every minute spent with Harry Potter, even the second time around (or more, I’m not telling). My favorite non fiction read would be a toss up between Finding An Unseen God, Dough, Surrender, and Clara’s War. Really, I loved all three, for different reasons.
- Did I discover a new author? Yes, I read several books by authors I hadn’t read before but I am most excited about the next book by Suzanne Collins, author of The Hunger Games.
