2008 Challenge Complete! (3M)

With the addition of the latest books, I'm done!

For this challenge I committed to 6 books, hoped to read 8, and ended up with 11! My favorites by far were The Invention of Hugo Cabret, Atmospheric Disturbances, Unaccustomed Earth, and Out Stealing Horses. My least favorites were Breath and On Chesil Beach.

The books I read in order of enjoyment:

  1. The Invention of Hugo Cabret stars5.gif by Brian Selznick
  2. Atmospheric Disturbances stars4h.gif by Rivka Galchen
  3. Unaccustomed Earth stars4h.gif by Jhumpa Lahiri
  4. Out Stealing Horses stars4h.gif by Per Petterson
  5. A Mercy stars4h.gif by Toni Morrison
  6. After Dark stars3h.gif by Murakami (I'm thinking of changing this to a '4')
  7. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows stars3h.gif by J.K. Rowling (Too many deaths)
  8. The Cloud of Unknowing stars3h.gif by Thomas H. Cook
  9. The Gathering stars4.gif by Anne Enright (Even though this is rated higher, it was mostly because of the writing. It's not really a book I 'enjoyed')
  10. Netherland stars3h.gif by Joseph O'Neill
  11. On Chesil Beach stars3.gif by Ian McEwan (I'm thinking of lowering this rating)
  12. Breath stars2.gif by Tim Winton (I actually liked the first 3/4 of this)
