This past year I’ve read a lot of books. To be fair, the majority of the books were books I’ve read before, but I thought it would be fun to share what I’ve read. These are in no particular order because I don’t actually remember when I read all of these.
My year started off with me rereading my favorite series, The Books of Bayern by Shannon Hale. Enna Burning is my favorite book and I read it at least once a year.
Sometime around that same time I also read The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern. It was good, but the undefined magical limitations led to a lot of confusion on my part.
After that I reread The Magician’s Nephew and The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe by C. S. Lewis. I will finish the series eventually, but it got pushed to the side by my ever growing “To Read” List.
I also reread Little Women this year. I love that book so much.
Over the summer I read the His Fair Assassin trilogy by Robin LaFevers. They were awesome. What a great concept! I highly recommend these books to anyone who enjoys romance and murder.
Also over the summer I reread the first three Kingdom Keepers books by Ridley Pearson thanks to my 13 year old Brother-in-Law who recently discovered them. I read them when I was his age, but couldn’t remember enough to talk to him about it so I picked them back up. There’s a whole bunch more to the series now and I want to finish them next time I’m in California and can borrow his books again.
More recently I began reading Peter Pan by J. M. Barrie. I thought I’d read it before, but now that I’m reading it, I think this might actually be my first time.
And I’ve been reading a collection of 101 Fairy Tales by the Brothers Grimm, and a collection of Hans Christian Andersen tales. I don’t know how far I’m into either of those because I’m skipping all over the place.
I know I’m missing some books that I read this year. Maybe they’ll come to me in the next couple of days.
Anyway, I’m looking for book recommendations! I’m not a big fan of romance, but I don’t mind it in the story as long as it’s in the background and not super cheesy (keep it PG rated). I love fantasy. I love historical fiction. I love Young Adult. Please suggest books you like because I want to read them!
