Weekend Update

Bookish Nostalgia September 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.”

Some 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.

 

2005:
Mrs. Pollifax on Safari by Dorothy Gilman – audio edition narrated by Barbara Rosenblat
This is such a delightful series and the one that kicked off my love for Barbara Rosenblat as a narrator.

 

2006:
One Foot in Eden by Ron Rash
This continues to be one of my all time favorite books. I should read it again.

 

2008:
Rosemary’s Baby by Ira Levin
As old as this one is I was surprised that it didn’t feel more dated. It’s a short book but the gradually building tension makes it disturbing but good.

 

2009:
Tomorrow When the War Began by John Marsden
This is the beginning of a great series about a group of Australian teens and what they do when war breaks out. I have the final two books on my ereader but haven’t read them yet.

 

 

Hope you’re having a great weekend!
