2-Year Blogiversary!

And what a busy book year it's been!

Now, since I only post my FoodFic musings biweekly, I don’t get to blog about every book I read. And, to be fair, not every read lends itself to a good FoodFic discussion, either because the food in the story doesn't jump out at me, or my schedule’s already full for the year, or a book’s subject matter is too dark or serious for me to lightly chat about here.

Anyway, these are most (I’m sure I’ve forgotten a few) of the books I read over the past year that weren’t reviewed here at BWATE?:

Laurie Halse Anderson – Speak
Margaret Atwood The Handmaid’s Tale
Edward Bloor – Taken
Geraldine Brooks – Year of Wonders
Harlan Coben – Tell No One
Robin CookCure
Patricia Cronwell – At Risk
James Dashner – The Kill Order
Jennifer Egan – A Visit from the Goon Squad
Myla Goldberg – The False Friend
Seth Grahame-Smith – Pride and Prejudice and Zombies
Kathleen Jeffrie Johnson – Gone
Chris Mitchell – Cast Member Confidential
Liane Moriarty – What Alice Forgot
James Patterson & Howard Roughan – Sail
Francine Prose – Touch
Delia Sherman – Changeling
Maureen Sherry – Walls Within Walls
R.L. Stein – Welcome to Camp Slither
Kathryn Stockett – The Help
Susan Vaught – Stormwitch
Paul Volponi – Hurricane Song
Rich Wallace – Dishes
Scott Westerfield – Uglies, Pretties, Specials, Extras
Daisy Whitney – The Mockingbirds
Brenda Woods – A Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame 
Jacqueline Woodson – Behind You
Benjamin Zephaniah – Face
Markus Zusak – I Am the Messenger
