I read two more books the last week of 2010. So my total for the year is now 59. I’d say that’s pretty good considering I didn’t have access to a lot of books. I’m trucking through this year already with 5. (Loving the Kindle.) With last year’s list I read 60 in 2009 and read 5 books by January 28.

So I’ll start with the books I reread in 2010. I rate on a scale of 1-5.

La Petit Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupery – 5

I read this in both German and English. My mother used to read it to me in the original French. Wonderful children’s classic with a depth unfathomable by children. Definitely something to read as an adult.

The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkein – 5

Read this one with Albert. He liked it and wants to read the Lord of the Rings. I can’t say much about the Hobbit except that it’s awesome.

Harry Potter 4 by J.K. Rowling – 4

This is my absolute favorite Harry Potter. I bought a fancy signed version in London.

Harry Potter 7 by J.K. Rowling – 2

I don’t like this one as much. The movie was awesome. (I hate you Hollywood for splitting it into two, grrr.) It’s too psychological and philosophical instead of constant action for me.

Dragonfly in Amber by Diana Gabaldon – 3

Love love love this series. Especially the first one, Outlander. Anyone who can keep me hooked for 1,000 pages and never let up on the humor, love, and action is amazing.

Eclipse by Stephenie Meyer – 2

I don’t like these books very much. The Host is so much better. But the movies are fun so I reread before the movies. They are quick easy reads when I just want to relax.

Outlander by Diana Gabaldon – 4


Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen – 3

Good book. I struggle with her writing. It doesn’t quite hook me. But the story is wonderful.

The Host by Stephenie Meyer – 4

This book grabs from the beginning and doesn’t let go. The world is well developed and interesting. The characters are heart-wrenchers.

Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins – 3

Had to reread before Mockingjay came out!

And those are my rereads for 2010. I will keep listing what else I read this year in small chunks. Also, I’ll have a Kindle review at some point.
