Carly over at Writing from the Tub had this fabulous idea to do a bookish 12 Days of Christmas. I love the idea so much I've decided to have a go too!
The first is 12 books from 2010. I think Carly may have chosen ones published in 2010, mine come from anything I have read in 2010.
Every Secret Thing by Marie Munkara
Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert
The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Society by Mary Ann Shaffer and Ann Barrows
Push by Sapphire
The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane by Kate DiCamillo
The Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood
The Final Empire by Brandon Sanderson
What's Happening to Our Boys? and What's Happening to Our Girls by Maggie Hamilton
Two books that have become my bibles as I move towards a world where I parent tweens and teens. Hamilton gives a very clear run down on the vastly different world my children are experiencing and how I can help them navigate their way through it with out alienating them. Essential parental reading.
To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee
So embarrassed that it has taken me so long to read this book. Easy to see why it's a classic. One I plan to reread and often.
She's Come Undone by Wally Lamb
After struggling a bit with The Hour I First Believed, I was a little reluctant to try another Wally Lamb. By oh my goodness! I plan to read his backlist in 2011.
Mr Rosenblum's List - Natasha Solomons
Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins
So there is my 12 for 2010. Next on the list are 11 favourite characters!
