I haven't read nearly enough this year (I wonder why...), but there have been some very interesting and even brilliant books gracing my bedside table.
The one that I enjoyed more than I thought I would: All That I Am by Anna Funder
The one that lived up to the hype: Bring up the Bodies by Hilary Mantel
The one that I wish I'd written: Past the Shallows by Favel Parrett
The one that made me cry: Charlotte's Web by E.B. White
The one that I cooked from most: The River Cottage Family Cookbook
The one that I loved reading aloud: The Tale of Despereaux by Kate DiCamillo
The one that started so well: A Visit from the Goon Squad by Jennifer Egan
The one that I'm reading now: The Paperbark Shoe by Goldie Goldbloom
And the ones that I'm excited about reading next year?
NW by Zadie Smith
The Life by Malcolm Knox
May We Be Forgiven by A.M. Homes
The Mousewife by Rumer Godden
