Books I've Read 2009
"2008- 6th jan. reread in preparation for the film and fell in love with it all over again. laugh out loud funny and genuinely heartwarming at parts (especially the end)"
The Private Memoirs and Confessions Of A Justified Sinner: With a New Introduction by Ian Rankin
"6th jan - 25th jan. A chilling read criticising religion at a time when it was still ingrained into all life. Slow to get into but well worth the read."
Frankenstein: or The Modern Prometheus (Oxford World's Classics)
"26th jan - 8th feb. simply brilliant. now one of my favourite books. Shelley has a talent of getting you engrossed in the world even when the action is low."
Wuthering Heights (Penguin Classics)
"9th feb - 15th feb. Suprisingly good, i thought it was going to be two jane-austeney. Found it slow to start, but the mystery and gothic realism soon sucked me in!"
The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde (Penguin Popular Classics)
"23rd feb - 27th feb. easy enough to get into but quite slow at the end, i found."
Dracula (Penguin Classics)
"24th feb - 15th mar. really slow at parts but very enjoyable in others, i have mixed feelings about this, but the writing is brilliant and the diary format is enjoyable."
The Picture of Dorian Gray (Barnes & Noble Classics)
"15th mar - 19th mar. enjoyed it first time I read it but this time I found the social commentary tedious and struggled to get through the book. No-one can match Wilde's wit though."
Lottery: The Fortunes and Misfortunes of Perry L. Crandall
"19th mar - 27th mar. really enjoyed this! about a guy bordering on mental disabilities (IQ=76) winning the lottery. Heartwarming but with a little more room for secondary character development."
"30th mar - 7th apr. my first murakami but definately not my last. Elegantly written following interesting characters in the course of one night, taking on the perspective of night itself."
Maximum Ride: The Angel Experiment
"8th apr - 22nd apr. rereading as i was bought the 3rd and 4th. As good a ever, sort of the young adult version of when the wind blows."
Maximum Ride: School's Out Forever (Maximum Ride Childrens Edition)
"22nd apr-28th apr. better than the first. It felt more mature and kept me gripped."
Maximum Ride: Saving the World and Other Extreme Sports (Maximum Ride Childrens Edition)
"29th apr - 16th may. Started off as the best but it went a little farfetched (more than the usual bird-kids plotlines) and there were a few smoking guns"
Maximum Ride: The Final Warning
"19th may - 20th may. May have only taken me 2 days, but that doesn't mean I enjoyed it. It felt too preachy though dealing with important issues, but has lost the tone of the earlier books."
The Dare (Quick Read)
"7th june - 8th june. Really enjoyed this, it was a gentle read and Boyne adopts the childs voice perfectly."
"2nd july - 4th july. Read a book before this, but it wasn't on amazon. Was disappointed with this, it was a skeleton of a story compared to the film."
The Memory Keeper's Daughter
"9th july - 24th july. Slow in parts but generally a good read. Not sure if I'd read it again though, it just didn't grab me like other books."
Handle with Care
"25th july - 2nd aug. First Picoult book this year so sped through it. This is the eleventh I've read, and while I really enjoyed it, it was a little predictable, very similar to My Sisters Keeper."
A Long Way Down
"2nd aug - 6th aug. Witty and wise, and very well written. But it didn't really build towards anything, and the end was a little anticlimactic."
The Time Traveler's Wife
"7th aug - 15th aug. Brilliant. Just brilliant."
"21st aug - 4th sept. Disappointing compared to the other Murakami, I felt it skipped too much over the plot and stopped about ten or twenty pages before the end."
The Other Hand
"5th sept - 16th sept. Powerful book and extremely well written, but I don't think it lived up to the hype it created."
"17th Sept - 18th Nov. Murakami uses music to show the emotions of an apathetic protagonist."
None of this Ever Really Happened
"19th nov - 17th dec. Really struggled to get through this one, I just couldn't get myself interested, though the end was quite good."
