A look back at 2010 (155 books read!)

I read 155 books in 2010! Wowzers, that's a lot. I keep a journal that I write down each book in and the month. So, it was quick and easy to add it up. What is most fun is to look back and see what I was reading a year ago at this time. Last year at this time, I was heavy into chick-lit. Soaking up Jane Green, Jennifer Crusie, Emily Giffin, Kristin Billerbeck, Janet Evanovich and Emily Weiner. These were always mostly "clean" romance books. I had gone through my paranormal stage in 2009. It was about July when I started to dive in with more risky romance writers and read some erotica. Well frankly, I am still there, lol. I love some smut as people call it, however there has got to be a story line there. I read one book this year in the smut category and it was so bad and the story line was horrible, I just had to put it down after about 50 pages.

My top 10 books from last year would probably be:

  1. Goodnight Nobody by Jennifer Weiner
  2. The Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold
  3. The Pact by Jodi Picoult
  4. Promises to Keep by Jane Green
  5. Simon's Choice by Charlotte Castle
  6. Take Me Down by Victoria Dahl
  7. She's Gone Country by Jane Porter
  8. Still Missing by Chevy Stevens
  9. Rescue Me by Jennifer Johnson
  10. One Night in Scotland by Karen Hawkins
2010 was great and I am looking forward to see what 2011 has in store for me as far as books. I think I will experience a lot of newer authors since getting my e-reader. I look forward to it!

Leave me a link to your 2010 reads if you have one.
