Throwback Thursday: September 2011

Throwback Thursday

#ThrowbackThursday

Revisiting what I posted 10 years ago,
following the idea I found at The Chocolate Lady’s Book Review Blog
(click on this link or the logo to see where the idea started from,
and to post the link to your own post).

On the first Thursday of the month available on my site,
I’m planning to post about the previous month, 10 years before.

  📚 📚 📚 

Today, I’ll be revisiting September 2011.

I published 22 posts, 6 of these were reviews.
A bunch of posts were about the BBAW, a week of events related to book blogging. Alas, this no longer exists.

Here are the two posts which received most views:

of mice and men

Yes, again Of Mice and Men.
But also my Onion and Leek Quiche recipe, my personal combo of two recipes by Julia Child.
Note to self: take a picture next time I do it and add the picture to the post.

My favorite reads from that month are:
  An Accident in August  Becoming Marie Antoinette

I am surprised not more people have read An Accident in August, as it’s actually based on Lady Diana‘s fatal car accident. Short and well done.

I also enjoyed a lot a spiritual book, which seems to be so essential for todays’ world:

our thoughts determine our lives

  1. Doing a ten year review like this is an interesting idea.
    An Accident in August doesn’t appeal to me; it makes me feel uncomfortable that someone is looking to exploit an individual’s death

    • I consider it like many other historical novels. When there’s some element we don’t know for sure in the life/death of someone famous, and the author is coming up with a possible idea. And the focus of the book is not Diana

  2. What a great idea of revisiting a whole month on one day. I have been planning to revist some older posts but haven’t had the time or energy to start it. Thanks for this.
