I’ve been reading an old blog I kept years ago as part of my research for the book I’m definitely going to get published. And I came across an old book list. I’ve always talked, written and dreamed about books and I smiled when I came across this post from December 2006.
What are your top 5 books of 2006?
The Wind-up Bird Chronicle by Haruki Murakami
The Swords of Night and Day by David Gemmell
Finding Serenity edited by Jane Espenson (this is about Firefly, it’s not a self-help book)
I Count – Your step-by-step guide to climate bliss by Rob Alcraft
The Vegetarian Cook by Christine Ingram (I’d probably starve if I didn’t have this book!)
I’m afraid I haven’t read many books this year: been busy running around… But there’s always next year, and now that winter’s here there’ll be less running around and my quiet life will give me more time to read 😀
One of favourite books ever is Jaws (Peter Benchley), and one of the dullest books I’ve ever read is When We Were Orphans by Kazuo Ishiguro. I never slate books publicly but this was just not gripping reading at all. It was shortlisted for the Booker Prize in 2000, but I suppose that doesn’t mean much, does it?
What are your thoughts on this, WordPressers? Good to see Jaws get a mention as usual! I don’t have the veggie cookbook anymore and I think the others have made it to new owners. I still remember the chills reading Murakami, the swooning action of Gemmell. I haven’t achieved climate bliss but still trying! And I’ll always love Firefly. Don’t you just love lists?
