Books I’ve Read
Books I’ve read in 2010
The Centurion’s Wife. Oke, Janette. Religious historical fiction.
A Lineage of Grace. Rivers, Francine. Religious historical fiction.
The Art of Racing in the Rain. Fiction.
The Help. Kathryn Stockett. Fiction. (side note: a new favorite)
Dreaming in French. Megan McAndrew. Fiction. (side note: put me to sleep. Couldn’t last through this one.)
The Guernsey Literary & Potato Peel Pie Society. Mary Ann Shaffer. (side note: another brand new favorite. Definitely purchasing this one)
Roses. Leila Meacham. Fiction. (allegedly the new Gone with the Wind for 2010?)
Nanny Returns. Fiction. (sequel to one of my favorites, The Nanny Diaries. Do yourself a favor and read the book and AVOID the movie.)
Get Me Out. Non-fiction. About the history of childbirth.
Sarah’s Key. Tatiana de Rosnay. historical fiction. Probably the saddest, most devastating Holocaust story I’ve ever read. As a mother, I cannot stop thinking about it. And I REALLY want to.
Slave. Mende Nazer. (The true story of her abduction from her home and family by Arab raiders in Sudan and subsequently she was sold into the slave trade in Khartoum. Basically when I was going off to college, she was working as a slave in Khartoum. An amazing story.)
Some faves from 2009:
The Mark of the Lion series (three novels, total). Francine Rivers. Religious historical fiction.
The Time Traveler’s Wife. Fiction.
The Love Dare.
