I read some amazing books in November/December 2010, and am half-through some others. Here’s a partial list!
- The Forgotten Garden by Kate Morton (a MUST READ! Tons of twists!)
- The Book of Air and Shadows by Michael Gruber (I admit, I don’t have a clue as to what this book is about. But I think I’m enjoying it.)
- Memory Boy by Will Weaver (The. Best. YA. Book. I’ve. Read. Period.)
- Hollywood by Charles Bukowski (just because.)
- The Lost Art of Real Cooking by Ken Albala and Rosanna Nafziger (If you’ve ever wanted to make your own cheese, ketchup, yogurt, or preserved lemons, this is your book!)
- The Complete Riddlemaster Trilogy (Riddlemaster of Hed) by Patricia A. McKillip (A masterpiece. I’ve been re-reading it for almost 30 years now.)
- Coming Home by Rosamund Pilcher (another favorite re-read)
- How to Cook a Wolf by MFK Fisher (I adore reading cook books when they’re written like this one and like #5.)
- The Mummy by Anne Rice (A classic. What the movie should have been.)
- Poemcrazy by Susan Goldsmith Woolridge (I’ve had this for awhile. Dipping in is remarkably refreshing.)
- Garden Spells by Sarah Addison Allen (Fabulous. Just…fabulous.)
- These Old Shades by Georgette Heyer (My all-time favorite Regency romance author)
- A Matter of Class by Mary Balogh (Another Regency, but one with twists, turns, and a wonderful ending that makes complete sense.)
There you have it. What have you been reading lately?
If you want to play, check it out at Thursday Thirteen .
“These Old Shades” would have to be my fav Georgette Heyer book. I’m definitly going to be adding the others on your list to my ‘read in 2010 list’ thank you 🙂
That was the first book of hers that I read – I still love it to death!
or read in 2011 even… sorry still catching up with the new year 😀
Interesting list, though I’m embarrassed to say I haven’t read any of them.
My TT is 13 of the books i read last year.
Love MFK Fisher – thanks for reminding me – I’ll have to check out some of these others too! Great list – thanks 🙂
You’re so welcome! At times it’s nice to go backwards with our fiction and read books written in other eras. That’s what MFK Fisher does for me – she takes me to a different time.
