2010 Year in Review - My Favorites

>>Thursday, December 30, 2010

Can you believe it's been another year? I can't. I started my blog this year, February for my LiveJournal version and March for this one. I've read many books (although I hope to read more next year) and thought I would create a highlight list of books I liked and some I didn't. These are all books I read in 2010 and not necessarily only released in 2010.

Total Books Read: 42

Favorite New Series

The Inheritance Triology by N.K. Jemisin
The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms - Review
The Broken Kingdoms - Review

Runner Up: Sirantha Jax series by Ann Aguirre

Favorite Science Fiction (a tie)

That's it for 2010. What were your favorites this year? 


  1. Have you read other Connie Willis besides this one? I've just gotten into her and I'm excited to read more :D

  2. No I haven't, but I am going to this year for sure! I really love her style.

  3. Hmm. Books I must eventually read -- BLACK AND WHITE, TO SAY NOTHING OF THE DOG, and COLD MAGIC. I'm waiting for COLD MAGIC to come out in MMPB.. Came very close to buying the TPB last week with my christmas gift card.

  4. I have the first 3 books in the Naming series...perhaps I ought to pick them up!
