Revisiting what I posted 10 years ago

Today, I’m revisiting July 2012.
I published 19 posts, 6 of these were reviews.
Of these books, here is the one that received most views then:

To tell the truth, I don’t remember much about the book, more about the feeling I had while I read it, and that I liked it.
But two books read that month have really stayed with me:
This was my first book by Daphne du Maurier, and a strong discovery.
Check my post: besides my review, it has lots of questions and answers (unless you have not yet read the book, because that part is obviously full of spoilers), and a fascinating analysis of the famous first sentence.
Since then, I have read My Cousin Rachel; and Jamaica Inn this past summer, which I also enjoyed a lot.
As well as Manderley Forever, a biography by Tatiana Du Rosnay.
My review on Rebecca is currently the book review that has received most views ever on my blog – for a long time, it was Of Mice and Men, but now Rebecca has over a 1,000 more views that Steinbeck’s novella.
In the Garden of Beasts: Love, Terror, and an American Family in Hitler’s Berlin is an excellent nonfiction.
In my review, I mention that I was going to read more by Larson. I haven’t done it yet!
I still want to read The Devil in the White City (I live in a suburb of Chicago), and probably also Isaac’s Storm.
