I nearly forgot to mention this and claim my prize, these very cool icons:
Every January Yellojkt at FOMA holds this NaJuReMoNoMo (National Just Read More Novels Month) to challenge us to read new novels. I haven’t done too well this year with just four under my belt and one of those was a very easy Debbie MacComber Christmas at Cedar Cove (Amazon) which took me just over an hour to read, so it feels like cheating. But, hey, it was a new novel to me.
The other new novels I read were:
Rosamunde Pilcher Voices in the Summer (Amazon)
I love Pilcher’s books but this one seemed particularly dated
Joan London Gilgamesh (Amazon)
Weird, odd and I did not really get it
Tracy Chevalier Burning Bright (Amazon)
A typical Chevalier romp through William Blake’s London.
It is a very Chicklit kind of list. I should get more serious with my reading but when I do, these days, I typically read nonfiction.
