Book List 2009-2010

I love books. Its a passion. I love to look at them and collect them and read them. Only problem is that I buy a ton and then don't have the time to read them forever! Plus, once I read a book I cannot reread it. Within the first few words my brain recalls every single thing that happened and I can't force myself to read it over again. With the exception of the Twilight Saga. Those I can reread for some reason.

Anywho, so I have this large collection of books and have only read a fraction of them, so my goal is to get through my book list before I buy anymore books! So here is the list of what I have already read and what is left to read between now and the end of 2010.

What is on your book list? Have you read any of these? What did you think?


  1. So...of course I've read the Twilight Series...who hasn't? :)

    I read Little Women and Wuthering Heights when I was a teen - so I could probably re-read them and not remember too much. I do remember that they were good though.

    I read the Da Vinci Code a few years ago - and Angels & Demons, which I thought was better. He also wrote one called Deception Point that I read - it was a tad slow at the beginning, but ultimately a very good book.

    I don't think I ever read Ann Rice's vampire series - I watched the movie. But I did read her entire Witching Hour series when I was a teen, and they were AWESOME!

    The only one on your list of Nicolas Sparks' that I have read is "At First Sight" - I watched "The Notebook" but never read the book. I personally didn't like "At First Sight".

    I have about 6 books sitting on my night stand, but they are all non-fiction, how-to learny books. :) I have books on sibling rivalry, how to instill faith in your children, how to get your finances in order, Power of a Praying Wife, Visioneering (a book on following whatever vision you may have, personal/career/family through to completion) - I think that's it. So, this has been my year for those type of books - maybe I'll get back to "just for fun" reads in 2010 and pick some of the books off your list! :)

  2. I enjoyed all the Sookie books, I think you'll like them. Have you read Jane Eyre? That is one of my favorite classic of all times. I bet you would love it.
    I'm actually debating going to a Kindle, just not sure I'm ready to give up the actual books!!
