Books of 2010

Because I’m a teacher, I don’t think of years like a normal person.  My years go according to school years.  Last school year a student asked me how many books I’ve read in a year, and b/c of this oddity I couldn’t figure it out.  Once the New Year rolled around, I decided to keep track of each book I read during 2010. 

 I can’t say that all of these are in order.  I did a good job at the beginning of the year, but for a while I forgot to update my list.  My summer reading starts at #20. 

How many books do you think I’ll read by December 31st?!

    Thats quite a few books. What is Beautiful Creatures about?

    • Mrs. Andersen says:

      If you search through my blog I have a review of it posted. It’s about a guy living in a small town that keeps having dreams about a girl he doesn’t know. In each of his dreams, he’s just about to keep her from tragedy, and then he wakes up. He ends up meeting the girl from his dreams when she moves into town. Her name is Lena, and she’s not your average girl. Odd things happen around her depending on her mood, but Ethan (the protagonist) can’t stay away from her.

    • Mrs. Andersen says:

      That is absolutely awesome, Tristan! Is this from January to the present or last school year to now? I own and have read quite a few of those, but some are still on my “To Read” list.

      • Tristan Bishop says:

        It’s from January. My parents have cut me off from reading right now until i finishing my book for Honors Sophmore Seminar 🙁 lol. I tried bolding my favorites like you did but i couldn’t figure it out.

        • Mrs. Andersen says:

          Oh geez! What books do you need to read for Sophomore Seminar?

          I don’t think you can bold things when you leave a comment, but you could always try typing it up as a Word doc first (being able to bold) and then pasting it in the comment field. Or you could put a * next to your favorites.

          • Tristan Bishop says:

            I have to read The Count of Monte Cristo. And its 600 pages 🙁 anddd i havent even started! But i know i’ll be able to finish it in like a week. And i promised i’d start it tomorrow.

  3. How interesting you say that, it is exactly the reason I started a book blog. I set a goal for myself for this year (Jan-Jan) of 104 books. I hit 52 today! Halfway there! I’m going to be trolling around your website looking for YA books to read. I read a bit of everything.

    I see that you said Gone is one of your favorites, I stumbled upon it while meandering around B&N last week and am waiting for it from the library. I’m glad you liked it, I have high hopes.

    • Mrs. Andersen says:

      Hey Jen! I’m so happy you started a blog as well! Have you read Wake and Fade as well? I love the whole series. Lisa McMann has a new book coming out called Cryer’s Cross. It sounds really good!

      I’m impressed with your reading list; I’m now in the 30s 🙂 What have you read so far?

I love comments!
