A big thank you to Michelle for hosting this challenge.
Rules: Read a minimum of 9 books published in 2009
Timeframe: 1 January – 31 December 2009
My goal: 9 books
I had quite a lot of older books to read in 2009 so was looking forward to balancing this with some newer books. I was suprised at how easy these were to come by in the end. I’m not a great fan of buying hardbacks but managed to find quite a few in the library. My favourite of these reads were Alone in Berlin and The Girl who Played with Fire.
1. The Post Office Girl – Stefan Zweig (first published in UK in 2009)
2. Live Fire – Stephen Leather
3. Strangers – Anita Brookner
4. The Piano Teacher – Janice Y.K.Lee
5. A Reliable Wife – Robert Goolrick
6. Alone in Berlin – Hans Fallada
7. The Girl Who Played with Fire – Stieg Larsson
8. He Was My Chief – Christa Schroeder
9. Summertime – J.M. Coetzee
