Books Read in 2010

I meant to do an update on the 75 books I managed to read last year!  This year I am attempting 100 and so far I am off to a good start.  I think I've read 5 so far.  So out of the below list my favorite book of the year was The Help.  I also enjoyed the Pretty Little Liars Series, The Lost Symbol, Shiver & Linger, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo Series, and all of Elin Hilderbrand's books that I read over the summer (I think I've almost read all her books).  It was sad to see The Hunger Games come to an end.  If anyone is on Goodreads please add me!  Here is my Goodreads:

WOW! I'm majorly impressed. My goal this year is just to read 1 book a month. The "good reads" site looks interesting. I'm gonna check it out. Have you read the Handmaid's Tale or the "In death" series by JD Robb?

Yeah I read the Handmaid's Tale in June, 4 stars! I need to read more from Margaret Atwood since that's all I've read of hers. I will have to check out the In Death series, and yeah do check out the Goodreads site. I find so many book recommendations on there through friends or just through suggestions they give you. Thanks!
