Spring Reading Thing 2010: The Wrap-Up

Well, it's been summer for quite a while now – spring is just a fading memory. And speaking of memories, mine seems to be getting fuzzier all the time. I completely forgot about wrapping up the Spring Reading Thing 2010 Challenge, which ended June 20th.

I want to say thanks to Katrina of Callapidder Days for hosting. It was a fun challenge because it didn't put any limits on genre or number of books. I read fourteen books, the same number I read in last year's 2009 Spring Reading Thing (I might not be a fast reader, but at least I'm consistent). And of those fourteen, only one (Fair Maiden by Joyce Carol Oates) was on my original list of possible reads (OK, I'm consistent, but fickle).

Here's what I read (with links to reviews):
  1. Heresy. S.J. Parris
  2. A Stitch in Time. Monica Ferris
  3. A Fair Maiden. Joyce Carol Oates
  4. The Swimming Pool. Holly LeCraw
  5. An American Type. Henry Roth
  6. A River in the Sky. Elizabeth Peters
  7. Live To Tell. Lisa Gardner
  8. The Map of True Places. Brunonia Barry
  9. Tinkers. Paul Harding
  10. The Last Child. John Hart
  11. Innocent. Scott Turow
  12. The Hypnotist. M.J. Rose
  13. The Forgotten Garden. Kate Morton
  14. The Magicians. Lev Grossman
As you can see, I still have quite a few reviews to get written (what else is new?) – working on that now.


  1. It looks like you did great to me!

  2. Joy
    The poster in Chinese left you spam. Just a heads up.

  3. Looking forward to reading your thoughts on The Magicians. Have a great week of reading.


Welcome and thanks for leaving me a comment. I love to hear from visitors.

Also, please note that while I appreciate the thought, I don't play the blog awards game. I think you all deserve awards! But you might think about becoming a follower of my blog -- that would really be the best award.
