Throwback Thursday: October 2012


Throwback Thursday


Revisiting what I posted 10 years ago

following the idea I found at The Chocolate Lady’s Book Review Blog

Today, I’m revisiting October 2012.
I published 20 posts, 9 of which being book reviews.

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

The Secret Keeper


I liked it a lot, as I have liked most of Morton’s books (by the way, she has another one, Homecoming, coming out on April 4, 2022).
I’m actually rather proud of my review of this one, so please have a look ;-).

Two other books read that month stayed with me:

  Little Princes Housekeeper And The Professor  

Little Princes: One Man’s Promise to Bring Home the Lost Children of Nepal
is a very inspiring book. If I had been younger when I read it, and with no obligation, I may just have left for Nepal right away!

The Housekeeper and the Professor
is a very gentle quiet literary novel.
The author has many genres upher sleeve. The Memory Police is excellent as well, but in a very different genre.

My next post on this meme will be on January 12

  1. I’ve seen a lot of recommendations for Morton books but have yet to try her. This certainly looks interesting, but the Ogawa is one I’d definitely go for if faced with a choice.


  2. Emma, I have been leaving comments on your posts but though they get published, they disappear after some time. Don’t know what is wrong. And I wonder if you’d be able to see this comment too.🤔
