Happy New Year! I hope your Christmas and other holidays were great.
I managed to catch a nasty cold just in time for New Years Eve, and it was one of those that forces you to rest all day, even though you don’t really want to. But ironically, I think the rest helped me over all, because I woke up on fire this morning! I’m NEVER “on fire” at 6:00 on a Monday morning (OK, at 6:00 on any morning). Especially this particular morning since it was only 18 degrees outside!
New Years is a time to reflect, and in that spirit I’m reviewing the books I read in 2009. Not all of these were stellar choices, but I stopped feeling guilty about unfinished books a long time ago. If I’m not hooked by page 100, I’m done! Actually, I start getting skeptical around page 50. I’m too busy to waste time on a boring book, even if it is a “classic.”
Here’s a quick run down for my 2009 reads:
- Favorite book: Water for Elephants
- Least favorite: The Shack (don’t get me started)
- The movie didn’t live up to the book: The Time Traveler’s Wife
- The movie was better! Confessions of a Shopaholic
