I’m back from holiday with a stack of updates to make. Hope you all had a great festive season like I did! First up I will finish with my 2010 reading list updates.

30th book in 2010 was:

Cover of White Teeth

White Teeth by Zadie Smith

I got this book last Xmas from my sister-in-law. I’d tried reading this a loooong time ago and failed miserably — I got super bored and didn’t finish and thought it was possibly one of the worst books I’d tried reading. So, I was reluctant to pick it up again. But it was on my reading list and I felt obligated, so I did. And I’m glad. I whipped through it and finished it the day before we flew out on holiday. Perhaps I am maturing as a reader?! I enjoyed it this time! It was well-written, interesting flawed characters, and I liked seeing the families grow and change over time. (Maybe I need to try finishing Lord of the Rings again…)

31st book in 2010:

Cover of Last Night at Chateau Marmont

Last Night at Chateau Marmont by Lauren Weisberger

Airport book — perfect reading for a flight, a little something flirty and lite. Delivered to expectations. I have read all of her books now and still think The Devil Wears Prada was the best. This one is about a woman who has to deal with her husband becoming a famous musician and how that changes their lives. It was a bit dull to be honest! I left it in NZ for my mum to get rid of…
