2009, 2008 lists


Queen B said...

how did you keep track of them all? I used to use a spreadsheet but moved over to It's harder for me to tell what I read by year :(

Did you find Help My Daughter Wants to Play Lacrosse to be helpful? :)

I LOVED Ford County. One of the stories in it made me have all kinds of suspicions about the workers at my Grandmom's nursing home!

Sunday at Tiffany's is on my pile to read next.

I should read The Blind Side. that was such a fantastic movie.

If you're a James Patterson and John Grisham fan, you have to read Alex Cross' Trial. It's a JP book but reads so much like a JG one. It's like 400 pages, and I plowed through it in like 3 days, it was SO good.

Queen B said...

looks like I read 32... +/- a few, I'm sure. I could lump in books for school, but I'm not going to!

So impressed by this list

Andrea said...

I hate (LOVE) you..... You read 4 times the number of books that I read. I really need to step up my game in 2011. I'm making a copy of your list and go from there...oh and maybe get The Queen over here to organize a spreadsheet for me and really, REALLY get me organized!!

Andrea said...

So, I did a dump of the books that you read and put them into a spreadsheet (yes The Queen is affecting me) to start building my reading list for 2011 and it looks like there was only ONE book on your list from last year that I have also read....

Andrea said...

Which one did you already read? Here are my top picks from last year:

The Bronze Horseman (there are two more, also, but I haven't read them yet)
THe Forgotten Garden
anything by Jocelyn Jackson
The Help
The Pilot's Wife
An American Wife was good too

I don't know if you ever read Young Adult Fiction, but there were all really good:
The Hunger Games series (Catching Fire, Mockingjay)
The Mortal Instruments books City of Bones, City of Glass, City of Ashes)
Thirteen Reasons Why

Little of This, Little of That said...

Wow! I'm impressed! That's a lot of books! Are you going to be doing book club this year?

I mom, therefore I blog.
