In just two weeks, we'll be seeing the end of 2010. I haven't read as many books as I had wanted to, but the ones I read were, for the most part, good reads. I read more current books than classics, which is a bit of a change for me.
One of the books I read was a big hit here in Canada this year, Kathleen Winter's 'Annabel'. For me, I thought the concept was interesting and the character Treadway was one of the most complex and relatable I've ever read. However, I thought the execution could have been better; the story starts off with a bang but tapers at the end.
The best book I read this year was Anita Diamant's 'The Red Tent'. I just couldn't put it down, I read it in two days (for which I apologize to my daughter - she probably watched more cartoons than she should have :S) It was some of the best storytelling I've ever read.
What was your favourite read of 2010? Was it a new book, a classic? What book impacted you the most? Is there a book you're looking forward to reading in 2011?
