How do you keep track of all of them? I can never remember all the books I have read. I was going to do a similar post but I might have to strain my brain to do it. I wish my library would keep a record of what I have checked out.

From your list I have read 1, 12, 13, 16, 21, 28, 34, 38, and 47.

I just read Mockingbird by Kathryn Erskine and I would highly recommend it.

We were pretty darn close in our book numbers. Sweet! I love that we both read the same and vastly different books so we can talk about them later. I miss you. Has it been forever since I've seen you? :)

Michelle said...

Oh thank you for this post! I have been fresh out of good reads. I'll have to check some of these out!

Holly said...

Just read "The Graveyard Book," which now that I think about it was recommended to me by Marni who heard about it from you. Loved it. I'll have to friend you on Goodreads.

Esther Noelle said...

Quite a list! Good job lady!

Maria said...

Have you read Jane Eyre and Frankenstein? Classics but two of my favorites!

Sadly, I read the least this past year than ever before!! But I do have to say that the Mockingjay series was my absolute favorite from the year!

I failed to read a lot in 2010, but I'm aiming higher in 2011. I've bookmarked this so I can read some of these.

I read clockwork angel. I'm thinking I'll pre-order city of fallen angels on kindle soon so it comes in automatically in april.. I've been keeping a list of 2010 books but my list is much shorter than yours.. :)
