Top 10 Reads of 2009

2009 is over. (Well almost considering this is the last day of the year.) I totally surpassed myself in terms of reading amounts. As of this morning, I have read 528 books this year. I'm hoping to finish at least two more before 11:59pm tonight. This amount of books will never been seen again in my lifetime. I figure that starting with this upcoming year, I will no longer have the time to read as much as I do. Therefore this past year after I hit the 300 book mark I just read as much as I could because I knew I would never be able to do it again in my lifetime. And I did that while attending grad school AND got married!

These were my top 10 reads of the year. Believe me it was very hard to only pick ten and I was tempted to fudge and say top 15 or even top 20. But I decided to finally stick to the rules (with one exception at the very end)
. I VERY HIGHLY recommend all these books.

In no particular order:

Scared by Tom Davis (Review)


Someday My Prince Will Come by Jerramy Fine (Review)

A Taste of Fame by Linda Evans Shepherd and Eva Marie Everson (Review)


Italian for Beginners by Kristin Harmel (Review)

The Knight by Steven James (Review)

Play It Again SAHM by Meredith Efken (Review)

Holly's Inbox by Holly Denham

  5. Fools Rush In was fun! I am taking Scared away with me to read so if I'd got to it in time it might have made my list, too :)

    Love and hugs - have a great start to 2010 :)

  7. I too loved The Knight (love all the Patrick Bowers' books!). I have A Taste of Fame in my queue; may have to move it to the top!
