My Year in Books

These are the books I read last year.  A great variety I know!  I don't stick with one author or genre.  And I read a lot of children's books cos I still read to Tassy most nights.

Favourites - well I loved Gone Girl and YAY they're making the movie!  The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo and The Da Vinci Code - it took me a while to jump on the bandwagon for those two!  Oh, and I loved The Messenger by Markus Zusak who wrote The Book Thief which I also loved.  He writes so well.  Really captivates you.

Fizzers - Well I was excited about The Elegance of the Hedgehog but didn't enjoy it at all.  Also not to keen on Cloudstreet and The Reader.

As for children's books - I didn't really love any this year.  The Golden Door was probably my favourite.  Artemis Fowl would be the least favourite.

Have you read any of these?
