This Time Last Year I Was Reading ...

I love keeping records and lists. I'm not sure if that makes me a nerd, a geek or just an excessive stationery consumer! My records of books I've read recently came in handy when we picked up a copy of Pat Barker's Regeneration trilogy. I knew I'd read two of the three in my pre-blogging-and-reviewing days, and quickly found out that was almost a decade ago - in 2010.

In doing so, I really enjoyed looking back and reminiscing over books I'd previously loved, so much so that I thought I might show you all some of them too! I've linked to my review post if there is one. Here's the books I was reading on (or around!) this date in years gone by ...

  1. I still have some of the books I was reading before I started blogging. I haven't read any of the books you posted.

    1. I don't tend to keep any of my books for long once I've read them because I just don't have the space!

    1. Well, if both of us do it that's normal enough for me!
      I've read Still Alice and Capital too

    1. Stardust was such a beautifully written and magical story. I highly recommend it, especially if you love fairytale-style stories

  4. This time last year I was in a reading slump so this October has been a bit better!

    1. I'm glad to hear it! Reading slumps are depressing

  5. Ohh this is awesome! I wish i'd kept a record of my reading choices over the years. It would be fun to see whether or not I'm growing as a reader. ;)

    1. My reading is definitely getting more niche! I think that's since I started blogging and got a NetGalley account
