Throwback Thursday: January 2012

Throwback Thursday


Revisiting what I posted 10 years ago
(my blog was born on September 29, 2010)
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 January 2012.
I published 21 posts, 9 of these were reviews.

Of these books, here is the one that received most views:

dickens a life

Not surprisingly, the post that actually got most views was not a book review,
but my very first annual recap, with the first time I did charts.
I’m glad to be still doing this in 2022, with even more detail.

Year of reading 2011

I would like to mention 2 books I reviewed that month and really enjoyed a lot.
The first one is probably my most favorite book ever, this was a reread.

Le Grand Meaulnes is that a fish

  1. I haven’t read these books, but I do love this concept for a feature. Wow, 2011 — it’s fantastic to see that you have been blogging and sharing your love of reading for this long 🙂

  2. Interesting books this month. I still have a book by Claire Tomalin on my TBR pile about Jane Austen, But I also love Charles Dickens, so I see another purchase coming. And I will definitely have to read that Alain Fournier book. Both are on my wishlist now. Thanks.

    What’s even more interesting, our blogs are almost the same age. I started 5 October 2010 with the question “Which Austen Heroine are You? “.

    My ThrowbackThursday this week is The Island by Victoria Hislop.


  3. My reading recaps get a lot of views too. And hey, I have read both of those books! I loved the Fish, I didn’t get on so well with Le Grand Meaulnes but I think I should read it in French. The translation didn’t do it for me.

  5. I can’t remember if I learned of Le Grand Meaulnes from you or not but I requested it from my library a few weeks ago. Then, while picking up a different request, I ventured into my library’s bookstore where they sell donated books. There were less than 20 books in French. But there on the shelf was Le Grand Meaulnes for 50 cents! The volume is an illustrated hardback, printed in France. The edition date is 1955. I have no idea what the story is about but if it’s one of your absolute favorites, I’m looking forward to reading it.
