My favorite reads 2010

First of all HAPPY NEW YEAR to all of my wonderful readers and book blogging friends! As we say our goodbyes to the wonderful reading year of 2010 I've compiled a list of my favorite reads in the year that have passed. I managed to read a total of 73 books, I had a goal of reaching 100 books but work, studies and being a mom sort of sat a natural stop on my reaching that goal(perhaps I should wait to set such a high goal until I'm retired? LOL) Any way here's my favorite reads from 2010:
  1. Jellicoe Road by Melina Marchetta
  2. The Book Thief by Markus Zusak - I've not reviewed this book but I should.. It's amazing!
  3. Butterflies in May by Karen Hart
  4. The Lying Game by Sara Shepard
  5. The Fiddler's Gun by A.S. Peterson
  6. The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer
  7. The Help by Kathryn Stockett
  8. Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card
  9. In For a Penny by Rose Lerner
  10. Prophecy of the Sisters by Michelle Zink

Honorable mentions:
Uglies by Scott Westerfeld
Immortal Beloved by Cate Tiernan(review to come January 7th)
Slave to Sensation by Nalini Singh
The Reckoning by Kelley Armstrong


  1. 10 was way too hard for me ;)
    Great list, lots of books I have to try there

  2. I totally understand being a mom, my goal was 50 and I did make that.

    Prophecy of the Sisters made my list also. And I want to read your #6 this year.

    Happy New Year to you

    Here is my favourite list

  3. B: It almost was for me as well hence all the honorable mentions ;) I'll be by and check out your list later tonight.

    Marce: I hope you'll get a chance to read it, it is a wonderful story :) Thanks for sharing a link to your list, I will drop in later tonight.

  4. And I haven't read a single book of your top 10! gotta change that, I'll start by reading Prophecy of the Sisters since I own that one ;)

  5. I am reading Ender's Game this month.
    I read Lying Game, just finished - but it was not my fav though, BUT can't wait for the 2nd book :)
