Weekend Update

Bookish Nostalgia June 2017

I totally stole this idea from Kay at Kay’s Reading Life. Every month she looks back in her reading records to see what she was reading this month in past years. I decided that would be fun even though my reading spreadsheet doesn’t go back as far as Kay’s records do.

Bookish Nostalgia

I’ve only been tracking my reading since October 2003 but it’s still fun to take a look back occasionally. Anything before mid-2006 hasn’t been on my blog and some of those old reviews are frankly a little embarrassing at this point. I’ll link to my full reviews when I think are worth reading.

Sometimes my reaction is “I can’t believe I read that” and other times it’s “Oh I remember where I was when I read that one”. and occasionally it’s “I really want to read that again.”

Most of these are pre-blog so the links take you to Powell’s for more information. Links for 2007 and later take you to my review.

2004:
Final Account by Peter Robinson
Robinson’s Inspector Banks series is just excellent. It’s been far too long since I’ve read one. I need to fix that.

2005:
gods in Alabama by Joshilyn Jackson
This was her first book and it was just wonderful. If you haven’t read it, you should.

2006:
Birdman by Mo Hayder
This is the first in her Detective Jack Caffery series. It’s rather brutal but she does such an fabulous job with this series and it’s troubled protagonist,. This is yet another series I need to get back to.

2007:
Miracle in the Andes by Nando Parrado
Parrado was one of the survivors of a plane crash in the Andes in 1972. His first person account is harrowing and uplifting.

Hope you’re having a great weekend!
