Mini Reviews (1) – Throwback Thursday

I recently ran across this little journal that I got for my birthday in 2010. I only bothered to write reviews for the first 2, haha. This is what I was reading:

A Caribbean Mystery (Miss Marple #10) by Agatha Christie
⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐
I made the mistake of seeing the TV version first. So, I already knew the solution. Still, an engaging Miss Marple story.

Inkheart (Inkworld #1) by Cornelia Funke, Anthea Bell (Translator)
⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐
Rather long and rambling with a very quick resolution. I loved all the quotes from various books and the many literary references – some of which I got, others I didn’t. This book made me want to read many more books – something I LOVE.

Julie and Julia by Julie Powell
⭐ ⭐

My Life in France by Julia Child, Alex Prud’Homme
⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐

Austenland by Shannon Hale
⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ Here’s my review from my re-read.

Confessions of a Jane Austen Addict by Laurie Viera Rigler
⭐ ⭐ ⭐

The Moonstone by Wilkie Collins
⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone by J. K. Rowling
⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐

The Tale of Oat Cake Crag by Susan Wittig Albert
⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐

Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets by J. K. Rowling
⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban by J. K. Rowling
⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire by J. K. Rowling
⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐

The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie by Alan Bradley
⭐ ⭐ ⭐

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix by J. K. Rowling
⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐

    I love mini reviews. I still haven’t read an Agatha Christie book, but have some lined up for this year. I will be reading And Then There Where None and then will start on the Miss Marple series since I own the set.

      Oh good, because I’m terrible about writing long reviews, so I’ve got lots of mini review posts lined up. 🙂 I’m in the middle of reading all the Poirot books and short stories in publication order. This involves a lot of re-reading but I want to make sure I’ve read them all. I’m planning to read all the Miss Marples when I’m done with Poirot. And Then There Were None is the one I always recommend to new Christie readers. It’s an excellent stand-alone!
