  • Mood:
I had a goal to read 100 books in 2011.

But here's my list of what I did read, including things I read for school, things I read just to lol at how bad they were, silly Doctor Who tie-in novels, and a picture book we read in Norwegian class.

Favorite fiction: The Master and Maragarita
Favorite nonfiction: Looking for God Knows What
Least favorite fiction: The Ice Princess
Least favorite nonfiction: Stories of the Soviet Experience. This book had absolutely fascinating subject matter (it's a collection of diaries, etc.) but the most dry, unreadable prose I've ever encountered in a published book. Bleh.
