My All-Time Top Nine Blog Posts- Blogiversary Edition
Why nine? Because that's what Blogger will give me in terms of statistics.
The most-viewed review on my blog is The Master and Margarita: the Graphic Novel, by Mikhail Bulgakov and art by Andrzej Kimowski and Danusia Scheibal. I used to do a graphic novel review every week! This is a fun one but not one I would have thought would be so popular.
#2: Cutting for Stone, by Abraham Verghese. This is one of my all-time favorites and one I doubt I would have read without this blog. I got to meet Verghese at a book signing in Cambridge and he was super nice. Like way nicer than average. And the book is just, wow.
#3: Mudbound, by Hillary Jordan. Haha, my number one negative review is #3 overall. The comments on this post are the best. I love you guys.
#4: Sarah's Key, by Tatiana de Rosnay. This book was super-popular and remains so. The movie was excellent and the book is not without its merits.
#5: FTC FAQ for Book Bloggers. This is a guest post that my husband wrote, when this stuff was a hot topic in the book blogging community. It remains a popular and often-viewed post, testament that it's still important to this community.
#6: Read-a-Thon 9am Post: For some reason, lots of you were really interested in the read-a-thon I did one time, to make a dent in my graphic novel backlog. Okay!
#7: We return to reviews with The Dinner, by Herman Koch. This book blew me away. So riveting and emotionally devastating, it's also very divisive and was a big book-club book when it came out in paperback. I still hand sell it all the time.
#8 The Wedding of Zein, by Tayib Salih. Oh how I loved this short, wonderful book. Go read it. Please. It really makes me happy to see so much attention given to my review of this delightful novel. I hope lots of you went out and read it, too.
#9: My 2012 Holiday Gift Guide. It's a little dated, but the recommendations are still solid! Glad you all find it useful.
