The list author says: "Simply a list to keep track of the books I read over the year, inspired by the following quote from themillions.com: "There are many ways to measure a year, but the reader is likely to measure it in books." ~ C. Max Magee
Looking forward to see how many books I will have read in the span of a year :)"
"A very unique coming-of age story set hundereds of years ago in Iran. Even though there wasn't a strong love story (which I usually look for in a novel), the fascinating details about Iranian culture made it one the best books I have ever read."
"A classic I finally found some time to read during the winter break. I have to say, it fails miserably as a love story but shines as a historical on the atmosphere of the American South before, during, and after the Civil War."
"In order to redeem my faith in romance and true love, I rebounded with this unexpectedly wondrous historical romance about a strong woman and the wilderness of post revolutionary America. This is the first of a series consisting of six books, which I probably won't read; I think the romance has attained a sufficient "happily ever after" ending."
"Set in a colonial port city, this short novel follows the trials of a young girl after she is bitten by a rapid dog. Can't say for certain whether I liked this novel or not -- it had a swirling and heady mixture of poetic prose, simple truths, and illusory, dreamlike scenes."
"Wow, this was an incredibly gripping mystery set in the 1950s in Barcelona, Spain. About a young man, a mysterious author, love, friendship, revenge, and so much more. As one of the reviewers put it, this is "one gorgeous read.""
"I became so consumed with school, work, etc that I lost my reading drive...until my friend recommended this book to me! I'm off to the library now for some more books and I have already requested the second one in this series. :D"
"An insightful and thoughtful description of the Iraq war from a unique perspective: that of a female Marine officer. As a female thinking about a career in the military, I found this book extremely interesting."
