When the winds of change blow hard enough, the most trivial of things can turn into deadly projectiles. -Despair.com
My original plan for this post was to list every book I read last year, but there are 54 of them and I’m feeling lazy. Instead, I bring you STEPHANIE’S SUPER READS 2010! (Lame title, I know, but I’ve been playing Disney princesses with the four-year-old monkey for the past two hours. Brain=Mush).
My reading list used to be restricted to historical fiction with the occasional literary read, but last year I made a point to try new things. Change is good. Usually.
Now I present my favorite reads from all sorts of nifty genres!
Historical Fiction: TIED! Lady of the Butterflies by Fiona Mountain and Mistress of Rome by Kate Quinn
Mystery: The Pericles Commission by Gary Corby
Literary Fiction: Little Bee by Chris Cleave
Young Adult: The Hunger Games (Series) by Suzanne Collins
Middle Grade: The Lightening Thief (Series) by Rick Riordan
Chapter Book: Lulu and the Brontosaurus by Judith Viorst
Memoir: Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert
Biography: John Adams by David McCullough
What new genres have you tried recently? Any books you read recently you would recommend?
