Well, not surprisingly, I didn’t make my 150 book goal. Once I hit 140 on December 29th I decided to call it good and devote my attention to other things. 140 is great, especially with small children around.
The Sharper Your Knife the Less You Cry – Kathleen Flinn: A memoir from Kathleen’s days at Cordon Bleu. I really enjoyed the book and have zero interest in French cooking now!
The Worst Case Scenario Survival Handbook: Parenting – Do you want a tongue-in-cheek, almost believable laugh at parenting? This is it.
The Constantine Codex – Paul L. Maier
Skipping Christmas – John Grisham: A fun Christmas read.
Captain Vorpatril’s Alliance – Lois McMaster Bujold: A fun Bujoldian romp, though a little weird to have a very secondary character as the main character of this book. Ah, Ivan.
Emily of Deep Valley – L.M. Lovelace: A reminder of junior high when I read a lot of her books.
A Wallflower Christmas – Lisa Kleypas
Selected Poetry by Edna St. Vincent Millay
Lessons from Madame Chic – Jennifer L. Scott: Great read! Maybe I will blog more about it later.
The Paleo Diet Cookbook – Loren Cordain: Just another bit of affirmation that the Paleo diet is not for me.
The Other Side of Goodness – Vanessa Davis Griggs: One of those books where you hit the last page and go, “Oh, was that the end?”
Snack Attack – Ruth Glick: I’d hoped for some good snack ideas but this wasn’t a big help.
The Sheep, the Angel, and Walter the Christmas Miracle Dog – Dave Barry
Come, Thou Long Expected Jesus – Edited by Nancy Guthrie: Advent reading
Eight Little Faces – Kate Gosselin
The Path of Freedom – Henri Nouwen
Home Made Simple
The Shadow Girls – Hennig Mankell: It took me forever to read this book! I finished it, but there was something about the flow of the story that I had a hard time with.
Ring of Endless Light – Madeleine L’Engle: A good way to end the reading year.
Now on to bigger (though not necessarily better) things. 804 pages of fun for me!
