Books Read in 2010- Final Tally

Let’s be honest, I won’t be reading any more books between now and the end of the year.  I have boxes to unpack and Christmas cards to send.  So I thought I’d go ahead and post my final list.
  1. Night by Elie Weisel.  EVERYONE should read this book.  Around 100 pages, but the hardest 100 pages to get through.  So worth it though.
  2. Exposure by Brandilyn Collins.  via Kindle for iPhone.  With the exception of the main character’s lame first name (Kaycee, ugh)…it was good!  Esp for a free Kindle book!
  3. 206 Bones by Kathy Reichs.  Love her.
  4. Suite Scarlett by Maureen Johnson.  Very cute book.  Also a Kindle free read.  There’s a sequel I can’t wait to read.
  5. The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo by Steig Larsson.  Currently working on this one.
  6. Size 12 is Not Fat by Meg Cabot.  Very cute book.  Funny.
  7. Big Boned by Meg Cabot.  See above.
  8. The Shack by William P. Young.  Thought provoking
  9. Look Again by Lisa Scottoline.  Tense.  Good.
  10. The Help by Kathryn Stockett.  Should be required reading.  Fantastic.
  11. Dead Until Dark by Charlaine Harris… Love!  It’s book 1 of the Sookie Stackhousebooks.
  12. Living dead in Dallas. by Charlaine Harris.  Hooked on this series
  13. Precious /Push by Sapphire.  Surprisingly short.  Full of foul language and behavior.  Glad I read it but wouldn’t read again.
  14. Club Dead by Charlaine Harris.  Still loving this series
  15. Twenties Girl by  Sophie Kinsella.  Fun read!  Very girlie.
  16. Dead to the World by Charlaine Harris.  This book is where you really notice the split from the tv series.  I kinda wish the tv show would stay more true to the books.
  17. Dead as a Doornail by Charlaine Harris
  18. Definitely Dead by Charlaine Harris.  This one got REALLY corny!  But I’m invested and I want to see what happens!
  19. The Book Thief by Marcus Zusak.  SO good.  Haunting. Had no idea it was a Young Adult book until after I read it.
  20. Hunger games by Suzanne Collins.  Amazing.  Seriously.  Devoured this and Catching Fire in one weekend.
  21. Catching fire by Suzanne Collins.  Could not put down.  Great characters, storyline.  Can totally see as a movie. Can’t wait for book 3!
  22. Chelsea Chelsea Bang Bang by Chelsea Handler.  Ok, but not nearly as funny as Are You There God, It’s Me, Chelsea.  I only laughed out loud like once.  She even said on her show that she was rushing to finish this book and you could totally tell.
  23. Maneater by Gigi Levangie Grazer.  Listened to this one on the way out to the Outer Banks on CD.  It was pretty good.  Light stuff for a road trip.
  24. Anyone But You by Jennifer Cruisie.  Listened to this on the way home from the Outer Banks on CD.  Wish we had picked this one first to listen to instead of Maneater.  Super cute and we were both disappointed when we arrived home before the story was over.  Immediately checked the book out of the library and finished the story.  Would be a really cute Rom Com movie.
  25. Altogether Dead by Charlaine Harris.  I think this is the one that deals with Hurricane Katrina.  I really liked how she dealt with it.
  26. Guernsey Literary & Potato Pie Society by  Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows.  Delightful!  Just a lovely book.  I’m so glad I read this.  Loved the letters format, loved the depiction of WW2.  Not as romanticized as other books I’ve read.  Wished there was more book to read.  As soon as I finished it I instantly missed the characters.
  27. The Cinderella Deal by Jennifer Crusie  Very cute.  Could definitely be a movie.
  28. Wild Ride Jennifer Crusie and Bob Mayer.  Liked this a lot more than I thought I would.  After the first chapter I almost stopped reading it but I’m sure glad I didn’t.
  29. Nature Girl by Carl Hiaasen.  Funny & clever.
  30. Undone by Karin Slaughter.  Very good.  Creepy.  Sticks with you.  Unfortunately once I was finished reading this I found out it’s the book that brings together 2 of Slaughter’s series.  So now I’m going to go back and read all the books I skipped.  Doh!
  31. Dead and Gone by Charlaine Harris.  Liked this one a lot.  A little more somber. She didn’t do as much “Previously on Sookie’s life” as she’s done before and that made it much more enjoyable.
  32. The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner by Stephenie Meyer.  This was interesting and a bit sad.
  33. Last Night at Chateau Marmont by Laura Weisberger.  Can’t remember much about this now.  I suppose that says something.
  34. Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins.  Fabulous. Loved loved loved it.

I went back and looked at my final list of books read in 2009 and saw that I set a goal of 50 books for 2010.  Oy.  Fell short.  I’ll have to do better in 2011!
