BBC Top 200 Books Challenge Wrap up 2011

30 Dec

This is my first year of taking part in this challenge properly. This challenge is good because so many of the books are well known, and i have a lot on the list that i have already read. I orginally thought that this was only a 100 book challenge, but found out this year that there are actually 200 on the list. oh well, more books are always good!

Books Read in 2011

1- Memoirs Of A Geisha, Arthur Golden This book is fantastic. One of my favourite reads of the year. I thought i wouldnt enjoy it, but it was fantastic. This book has opened me up to reading about other cultures.
2- The Hobbit, JRR Tolkien This was the first time i had read this book, but this was another fabulous read.
3- The Lord of the Rings – JRR Tolkein As i read this book in the three separate books, i would ideally like to say i read it as three! wow what a trilogy, i need to go back and re-read this because i dont think it all sunk in properly.
4- The Day Of The Triffids, John Wyndham This was another good read, i really enjoyed the genre of this book and i want to read more.
5- A Prayer for Owen Meany – John Irving As a contrast, i didnt really like this book, i just couldnt get into it, at all.

I only managed 5 books this year, which is actually a bit disapointing. I must do better next year.
