What I read last year:

Oh how I love to read. And what's even more fun is being involved in the book reading community with other big readers and fabulous authors and all the fun events (especially the great ones held here in Utah).

I love Goodreads (where more friends and authors are) and Shelfari (I like the visual 'shelf' look of it better) because they help keep track of what I read. I can also see what my friends are reading or wanting to read and easily add it to my "to read" shelf so I dont forget later when I'm looking for another great book.

I update my Goodreads account (more often then Shelfari) so if you're interested in my ratings and reviews or lists of books you can find them all there. You can find me as Debbie Cranberryfries.

What was your favorite book you read last year?


Rochelle Brunson said...

Wow, you read a lot. Someday I want to be like you. What was your fave for the whole year?

Angie said...

Nice list! I think my favorite last year was Warbreaker by Brandon Sanderson.

Rachel Sue said...

you're so good to keep track! I have no idea where one year ended and the next started!

Did you like Fablehaven? That is next on my list of books to read.

Barbaloot said...

Gosh-here I was thinking I was a serious reader. You just put me to shame:)

I have read a few of those, though. I liked Being Sixteen and Courting Miss Lancaster quite a bit. Matched was interesting...I don't want to wait a whole year to read the next one.

How'd you feel about Fablehaven? I just read the first one and wasn't crazy about it...

And have you read the Percy Jackson series? Or the Warrior Heir series?

Olivia Carter said...

Great list! You saw my list already but my top book I read in 2010 was THE SKY IS EVERYWHERE. I'm in love with that book.

Brie said...

Thanks for sharing. I love reading the books you recommend. Now I have a good book list for 2011.

Greg and Kimberly ... said...

I've read a lot of those, some because of your suggestions.
I don't know if I've read a book I totally love this year. I'm in the middle of Matched, it's taking me forever. I should know better than to start a book in the middle of December. :) I'm really enjoying it, can't wait to see what happens.
Are you one of those people that only needs 4 hours of sleep? Because I can't figure out when you find the time to read!

Jenni Elyse said...

I'll have to check out your review of Wither. I love its cover! I want to read it, but alas, I want to read a lot of things. ;)

Camie Marie said...

I'm so glad you posted this! I've been needing some new reading material and was going to email you. I have a whole huge list to choose from. Awesome!
