Time Travel Reading Challenge 2010 - Wrap Up

Many thanks to Alyce of At Home With Books for sponsoring the Time Travel Reading Challenge in 2010 -- definitely was right up my alley! Some of my top favorite books of the year were read as a result of the Time Travel Reading Challenge, so it was an extremely worthwhile challenge. Here is a list with a link to the reviews for my selections (click on the book title for the review).

Lady of Hay by Barbara Erskine

The Exile (graphic novel) by Diana Gabaldon

Mariana by Susanna Kearsley

Angel Time by Anne Rice

A Cottage by the Sea by Ciji Ware

Very much looking forward to continuing what I think is one of the most fascinating genres -- a blend of history, romance, and time travel -- in 2011!

Congrats on completing the challenge, I still have two more books to read for it, I have to cram them in by the end of the month!

Joanne said...

Hi, Julie! I know what you mean -- Kingdom of Dreams is a whopping 800 pages, so I'm desperately trying to finish it to get the review up in December. Good luck finishing the challenge!

Good job on finishing the Challenge! And what an interesting one.

I want to read The Exile, but I want to re-read the book first. :P

Joanne said...

Thanks, Ames -- I love anything with time travel, especially the Outlander series!

Thanks, Alyce, and if you're up for it again, I've got more time travel to read in 2011.
