What's in a Name - wrap up post 2016

I really enjoyed this challenge hosted by Wormhole.  I almost made it, but I just could not finish the last book, Light in August by William Faulkner. I have to admit, that I don't really like his books. This was the second book I tried by him. I finished Sanctuary, but did not really like it.

Otherwise I finished the challenge and read the following books.

I enjoyed all books except Faulkner. Hardy's book was a little bit more tricky.  I am a big fan of Hardy, but here he writes in dialect, and I always find it hard to read. It was also rather slow in the beginning, but picked up in the last part. His writing is always beautiful.

Now looking forward to the same challenge in 2017! Thank you to The Worm Hole for hosting.

  1. I get tripped up on Hardy, too. You have to be in the right mood and while I might start out that way, I don't always end up that way! But impressive to say the least!
