SRT 2010 Wrap-Up

Original Goals:

*Here Burns My Candle by Liz Curtis Higgs (finish)
*Plain Jayne by Hillary Manton Lodge (finish)
*As Young As We Feel by Melody Carlson
*Love Mercy by Lisa Samson and Ty Samson
*Becoming Jane Austen by Jon Spence (finish for April book club)
*Garden Spells by Sarah Addison Allen (May book club, a reread for me)
*A Distant Melody by Sarah Sundin
**finish THE BIBLE**
and go through magazines

Actual Accomplishments:'s what I did finish.

*Becoming Jane Austen by Jon Spence (finish for April book club) I give up! Jon Spence has made my beloved Jane boring. I can't stand it.

I sorted magazines and have one small stack of "Military Spouse" to reread and save resources from.

I did not finish the Bible...yet.

I had to give up on Becoming Jane Austen; however, I did read several other books, including one I didn't know would be out yet when I made the list: Life in Defiance by Mary DeMuth (and I would've added it to the list, because I was determined to finish that trilogy!). I also read:

*Floor Sample by Julia Cameron (good)
*A Case for Love by Kaye Dacus (good)
*The Church Ladies by Lisa Samson (liked it better the second time)
*Getting Away is Deadly by Sara Rosett (always good)
*Girl in Hyacinth Blue by Susan Vreeland (finished this one; it was about half-read from 2 months ago)
*Play it Again, SAHM by Meredith Efken (finally got to this one! also good)
*Enlightenment for Idiots by Anne Cushman (not great)
*The Sacrifice by Robert Whitlow (borrowed from a friend who is also moving)
*Thanks for the Memories by Cecelia Ahern (cute)
*Balancing Acts by Zoe Fishman (also not that great)
*How to Knit a Love Song by Rachael Herron (cute)

Obviously, not working was good for my reading :)

Oh dear, not good to make our beloved Jane boring. I may pass on that one.
