2010 book/movie list

Last year, I posted all of the books and movies I enjoyed (or did not enjoy) in 2009.  I thought it would be nice to do it again this year!

When I listed all of the books I read, I was ashamed.  Only five.  I could blame it on being busy with school/stress etc. but there really wasn’t an excuse.  So, I made a resolution to read at least two books a month in 2010.  That’s twenty-four books.  Way better than five.  I thought that seemed pretty reasonable, considering my work schedule and getting back into animating.  Unfortunately, I didn’t make my goal.  But, I read almost the entire year.  Some books took me two months to complete (because they were so bad) but I pushed through and the important thing was that I continuously read.

My goal for next year is to complete the Harry Potter series.  I read the first three when they came out but then I stopped for some reason so I’m basically going to have to start all over!  I know, I’m way behind but the books just look so huge and it seems like I’d really have to be in the mood to read them and my interests were always elsewhere so I have put them off but I will put them off no longer!

December

The Giver by Lois Lowry (3.5/5)
So, sixteen books!  Not twenty-four but way better than five!  Because the Harry Potter books are so large and I’ll probably be busy animating, I might not make it to twenty-four next year but as long as I’m continuously reading, I think I’ll be happy with that!
