So how did I do? Well looking back over my Fall Into Reading 2012 post, I did okay. Not great, but okay. Out of my original 13 books, I only finished 7. And I'm halfway through the 8th, 9th and 10th. I don't think I've ever had such a poor showing in any of Katrina's reading challenges in all the years I've participated. Granted a week or so was taken up trying to get into a book that I finally set aside, but still that is just not my normal showing. Ah well, such is life.
The books I did finish:
Really enjoyed this. Rated it 8/10
Very emotional. Loved this story of redemption, hope, love, commitment . Rated it 9/10.
Wanted to love this but it was just ok to me. Good, moral and strong main character, the story a bit wordy in parts. Just didn't capture me the way his other novels have. Rated it 6/10.
Really liked this. Another really emotional story of love and committement and living life to the fullest no matter the life journey. Rated this 8.5/10
Review book that I got a lot out of. Rated it 8.5/10
For the most part enjoyed this story though I found a few aspects frustrating. Rated it 7.5/10
A very, very interesting perspective on the Titanic and what happened after it sank and the effects of losing a loved one on the family of the one of the band members who played while the ship sank. Written by the grandson of the violin player of the band. Rated this 9/10.
Didn't like it, couldn't get it to it, finally quite after about 60 pages.
Didn't even get to:
