What I Read In 2010

I didn't do too bad in terms of reading last year (it sounds so weird referring to 2010 as "last year")...much better than I thought I would with a newborn in the house! I am also happy to report that some of the books I read were really amazing. My recommendations are in's hoping y'all find a book or two that you love from the list!

  1. I've had "The Pilot's Wife" on my bookshelf for over 2 years and never got around to reading it! I just set it aside to read ASAP! (I honestly have not read a book- for me- since Noah was born... it's pathetic.)

  2. I'm stoked you bolded "The Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet." Just about to start reading that. Oh, and I too adored the help. Are you going to see the movie when it comes out this Summer?

  3. Looks like a great year! I agree on not bolding Catching Fire or Mockingjay. While I liked Hunger Games, I've not been enjoying the sequels much at all. The only one you liked that I didn't is Her Fearful Symmetry. I wanted so much to like it, but was disappointed :(

    So what books do you hope to read this year?

  4. I've read a lot of these and I think we have similar taste! Hotel on the corner of bitter and sweet is next on my list.

  5. 26 books! wow I only managed to finish 4... I started 6 others but didn't make it through them. Go you!

    I love John Irving, and A Prayer gor Owen Meany is one of my favorites.

    Outlander is still on my Amazon list... I am aiming to read more this year.
