The first book I finished reading in 2011 was one I started reading before Christmas. What can I say? It's a quaint story about Christmas in a small town, a visiting angel, and...well...zombies.
Yes, I said zombies.
I bought The Stupidest Angel: A Heartwarming Tale of Christmas Terror by Christopher Moore because a friend of mine recommended a different one of Mr. Moore's book (Lamb: The Gospel According to Biff, Christ's Childhood Pal) but I decided to read this one first since it was the holidays.
All I can say is that I really didn't know what to expect when I picked up this book, in particular the line about it being a "tale of Christmas terror."
The line at Borders was long, so I began reading it in line (got through 17 pages - that's how long the line was). While completely laugh out loud at times, this book is incredibly creepy in other parts, to which I assume Christopher Moore would let out an enthusiastic "YES!"
After I finished reading it, though, I found some of those creepy parts pretty funny, so all in all, I have to say well done, Mr. Moore.
However, in the future, I now know that I need to be in a particular mood to read his work.

As with all New Year's plans, didn't keep up with the blogging BUT...I did keep up with my goal to try and read as many books as I could within one year.
And the grand total (imagine drumroll here)...
I READ 51 BOOKS!
I can hardly believe that I read that many books in 2010. That's more books than I probably read in high school and college combined!
For 2011, I will continue the reading, but more importantly, I will try to do better at putting up blog posts. I promise. Really, I do. I promise to try my best.
Below you will find the list of 51 books I read in 2010 along with a short comment from me.
#1 thru 5 - The Yada Yada Prayer Group Books by Neta Jackson - The Yada Yada Prayer Group Gets Real (Yada Yada Prayer Group, Book 3) thru book 7
Side Note: I read the first two in the series in 2009.
#7 - A Stitch in Crime (A Crochet Mystery) by Betty Hechtman
Quick read. I have a special place in my heart for these characters, even Adele.
Molly Pink is secretly my idol!
If you like crochet and mystery and, well, fun, you'll like this one.
