Reading the books from 2001 — overall, it felt like more of a chore than the first batch from 2000 did. Some of that is the novelty of the project wearing off, but some was the books themselves.
I appear to be in something of a minority on my dislike for Angus, Thongs and Full-Frontal Snogging, but looking at Goodreads, 87% of the people who rated it “liked” it. A good reminder that just because *I* don’t like something doesn’t necessarily mean it’s bad — although I didn’t think it was pretty awful. But that doesn’t mean the people that did like it are wrong. Nope, I’m not judging them. Not at all…….
I am glad for Many Stones, which I really did enjoy, and highly recommend.
As I write this post, I’ve already read several of the 2002 books, they are a very eclectic group of books (poetry! a verse novel!). I have one to listen to as an audiobook, and am waiting for delivery of the first book I’ve had to purchase. So far, I’ve found everything at a library or through my Oyster subscription.
