Best Books of 2010……

I am going to share this here as well as on my blog, Jen’s World.  It has been another slow year of reading for me.   Life and work have gotten in the way of my sitting around and reading into the wee hours of the night.  I am trying to make up for that on Christmas vacation I have been reading many hours each day.   Alas, I have only read 31 books in 2009, but some very good ones!!  You can check out the entire list of books I have read in 2010 on my website.   (which sure needs a overhaul!)

Jen's Best Books of 2010

  1. Gone With the Wind - Margaret Mitchell (5/5)

  2. The Room - Emma Donoghue - 5/5

  3. The Help - Kathryn Stockett  (4.5/5)

  4. Sarah's Key - Tatiana de Rosnay  (4.5/5)

  5. The Promised World - Lisa Tucker  (4/5)

  6. The House Rules - Jodi Picoult (4/5)

  7. The Reliable Wife - Robert Goolrick - (4/5)
  8. The Girl Who Plays with Fire - 4/5
  9. Look Again - Lisa Scottsline - 4/5
  10. Still Missing - Chevy Stevens - 4/5

I had a very hard time getting this list down to the to top 10 Books of 2010.  I had many more books that I also rated 4/5 - Recommend/Good

BookPage, recently posted their Top 40 Books of 2010, so I have added many to my reading list for 2011.  What was your favorite book of 2010??? 

I love making my list of best books each year.  I forget about all the great books I read in the beginning of the year!  Next, I will enjoy reading other book bloggers lists which will certainly make my "To Be Read" list even longer!

Happy Reading!!!

Library Loot: December 28th, 2010

badge-4_thumb Library Loot Event is a weekly event hosted by Marg at The Adventures of a Intrepid Reader and Claire from The Captive Reader.  This weekly event encourages bloggers to share the books they have checked out from the library. I always find many new books to add to my reserve list!

I am on vacation and finally had some time to read a book.  I have been in a terrible slump with my reading lately.   So I was excited to browse at the library today.   My son was not as excited for a long browse. 

I need to go to the book store and get some more new books added to my list of “To Read”.  


The following book found their way home with me from our local Library:
