retrospective reads

These are the books I am glad to have read in 2010.*

Lolita, Vladimir Nabokov.
The Turn Of The Screw, Henry James.
Ghostwalk, Rebecca Stott.
Atonement, Ian McEwan.
House Of Leaves, Mark Z. Danielewski.
Jane Eyre, Charlotte Bronte.
The Alchemist, Paulo Coelho.
The Great Gatsby, F. Scott Fitzgerald.

...of which I am sure there are more...

I hope 2011 brings a lot more literature.

*And the reasons why are diverse and plentiful----but I haven't included those that I was less than fond of.

  1. If you liked Jane Eyre, you should read Wide Sargasso Sea. It's the story told from the Woman in the Attic's point of view. Interesting!
