Catching up on the 30 Day Book Meme

August 13, 2010

Over on LiveJournal there’s a great Book Memes and Quizzes comm.

And they’ve just started a neat 30 day question a day meme about books. I’m jumping in a little late, as I’ve been out of town, but I love this idea. Time to catch up.

I got out of the habit of posting on LiveJournal. I’ll keep posting here, and will likely cross-post there.

So– today’s Day 3: What’s the best book you’ve read in the past 12 months?

Well, that’s jumping me in at the deep end. I am not good at picking “bests” or even top 5’s. I’m really glad I’ve been keeping my book list though. It jogs my memory. So some of the bests.

Best Assigned Book: Guardian of the Dead– Karen Healey. Got it in my review stash for the Star-Ledger and utterly loved it.

Best Historical Fiction: A Fierce Radiance. Lauren Belfer

Best Foodie: Alone In the Kitchen With an Eggplant

Oh wait– it’s books read in the past 12 months! So I can add: Gail Collins’ great book on women’s history, which I read last winter. America’s Women: 400 Years of Dolls, Drudges, Helpmates, and Heroines
