TwentyTen Wrap-up

I was just about to sit down and start writing my review of Alan Garner’s, The Wierdstone of Brisingamen, when I realised that finishing this 1960 classic fantasy filled the last slot in the ‘Older than You’ category, and also completed my TwentyTen challenge. You would have thought being my own challenge I would have already known that this would be the case, when I picked the book up.

But for some reason. Nope, the occasion slipped by me completely! 😉

So here’s what I read:

  1. Young Adult
    The Thirteen Treasures by Michele Harrison
    What I Was by Meg Rosoff
  2. T.B.R.
    Girlfriend in a Coma by Douglas Coupland
    All Families are Psychotic by Douglas Coupland
  3. Shiny & New
    Graceling by Kristin Cashore
    MouseGuard Winter 1152 by David Petersen
  4. Bad Bloggers
    Between Mom and Jo by Julie Anne Peters
    Scott Pilgrim’s Precious Little Life by Bryan Lee O’Malley
  5. Charity
    Swimmer by Bill Broady
    The Final Solution by Michael Chabon
  6. New in 2010
    Lex Trent versus the Gods by Alex Bell
    TimeRiders by Alex Scarrow
  7. Older than You
    Youth, a Narrative by Joseph Conrad

    The Weirdstone of Brisingamen by Alan Garner
  8. Win! Win!
    Out of Time by John Marsden
    Freaks by Annette Curtis Klause
  9. Who are You Again?
    Kneller’s Happy Campers by Etgar Keret
    All My Friends are Superheroes by Andrew Kaufman
  10. Up to You (Translated.)
    Chronicle of a Death Foretold  by  Gabriel García Márquez
    Hector and the Search for Happiness by François Lelord

My favourite of the bunch? That would be Between Mom and Jo by Julie Anne Peters. And my least favourite? Probably: Hector and the Search for Happiness by François Lelord.

Are you participating in the challenge? How are you doing? Have a favourite read so far?

    I somehow missed this post when you posted it, but I was just over here adding a review to the link-up and decided to poke around for any challenge posts I may have missed.

    I have one book to go–and I’ve already read it, I just have to sit down and review it.

    Congrats on finishing! I’ve got everything done for this challenge except the charity section, and I don’t know if I’m going to have time to finish it because I’ve got so many other books lined up to read. It’s been a fun challenge though!

      Oh, yes. I wasn’t sure where I was going find my Older Than You reads from at one point, but as I had so many more recent ones I needed to read, then I managed them both in a week! 😉

    Wow–that book is even older than me. 😛

    Congrats on finishing!!! I love the variety that this challenge had you reading!

    I was so tempted to join this one, but exerted excessive willpower. Sort of wishing I’d said “screw you” to that old willpower.

    I have six more to go! =) Surprisingly, my favorite so far is including one of my TBRs..Thanks to this challenge I read that book (I Capture The Castle-Doddie Smith). Otherwise, I guess it will be on my shelf untouched =)

    Congrats for finishing yours!
