In fact, I exceeded 52 books. Woohoo!! I even managed to read more books than last year. Ok, it was only by 1 but hey, 1 more than last year is great.
I was trying to double my number of books read but had a slow reading month last January. February wasn't such a great reading month either. So for next year, I will read 52 books in 52 weeks and at least match the number from this year if not exceed it again (working my way up to doubling the 52 for the year).
I would tell you my favorite book for this year but it is difficult to pick just one. So how about my top 10 (in no particular order) favorite books for 2010:
1. Fantasy in Death by J D Robb
2. Black Magic Sanction by Kim Harrison
3. Ghouls Gone Wild by Victoria Laurie
4. Ghost Shadow by Heather Graham
5. Night of the Living Deed by E J Copperman (new author for me)
6. Sketch Me If You Can by Sharon Pape (new author for me)
7. Harvest Hunting by Yasmine Galenorn
8. Dark Peril by Christine Feehan
9. Bone Appetit by Carolyn Haines
10. Bayou Moon by Ilona Andrews
whew! that was hard... I have read so many books that are worthy of the top ten.
I also listened to all the Harry Potter books (while knitting). I had read them years ago when they first came out. Great books! I enjoyed them all over again. And of course I then had to rent the movies!! lol. (yes, I did see the new movie. Great! like all the others)
Stella Cameron's books Out of Body, Out of Mind, and Out of Sight are excellent books about an ancient family of clairvoyants. If you like Heather Graham, Jayne Ann Krentz, Christina Dodd... you will like these books.
And in case you wonder if I read any books that would be on the bottom of a list. A list of just ok books to read. Well, yes, actually I do:
The Colorado Kid by Stephen King. I read this book because I was watching the tv show "Happy Town." I saw in the credits the show was based on the book The Colorado Kid by Stephen King. I use to read all of Stephen Kings' books so I went to the library and check out this book. Don't bother. I was disappointed and to top it off, I am not even sure how the tv show is even based on this book! Unless it has to do with strange and unexplained occurrences.
Well, there you have it. My reading year in a nutshell. Check back after the first of the year. I'll have a new list of books started for 2011. (I'm currently reading Blood Trinity by Sherrilyn Kenyon and Dianna Love)
My grandmother taught me embroidery when I was eight. When I was ten, she taught me to crochet. I learned to knit (not well) in junior high. In the 70's, needlepoint became my next art. It was while living in Italy, my English friend started me knitting again. Knitting has been my passion ever since.
