Throwback Thursday: December 2010

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.

  📚 📚 📚 

So today, I’ll be revisiting December 2010.

I published 14 posts, 7 of these were reviews.
The two that got most views are

Saving Ceecee the good thief

Click on the covers to see why.
I  updated these posts

To tell the truth, I don’t remember much of these. Hoffman has recently published another book. Have you read it? Do you recommend it to me?
If you love gothic, you have to read The Good Thief!

The book that blew my mind that month is:

unbroken

This one I really remember! Definitely a must if you have never read it.

I had also launched my own reading challenge, for books published in the first 5 years of my life. This post got the most comments of the month.
I did it for a few years, then stopped.

Looking For Me: Latest book by Beth Hoffman

Did you read my review of Saving CeeCee Honeycutt?

Did you like this book as much as I did?

If so, rejoice, Beth Hoffman‘s 2nd novel is FINALLY coming very soon,
on May 18th 2013!

Looking For Me

See her own presentation on her website.

And here is the synopsis on Goodreads:

A Southern novel of family and antiques from the bestselling author of the beloved Saving CeeCee Honeycutt

Beth Hoffman’s sparkling bestselling debut Saving CeeCee Honeycutt won admirers and acclaim with its heartwarming story and cast of unforgettable characters. Now, she rekindles her flair for evocative Southern settings and the inimitable eccentrics in her compelling new novel, Looking for Me.

Teddi Overman found her life’s passion for furniture in a broken-down chair left on the side of the road in rural Kentucky.  She learns to turn other people’s castoffs into beautifully restored antiques, and opens her own graciously-appointed shop in Charleston. Breathing new life into these discarded objects gives Teddi purpose, but has never alleviated the haunting uncertainty she’s felt in the years since her brother Josh’s mysterious disappearance. When signs emerge that Josh might still be alive, Teddi is drawn home to find him. It’s a journey that could help her come to terms with her shattered family—and to find herself at last.

Looking for Me is an unforgettable novel that is full of Hoffman’s signature heart and humor—and a grown-up love story to boot. It is destined to make her a bestselling novelist readers will want to read again and again as they have with Adriana Trigiani, Fannie Flagg, and Dorothea Benton Frank.
