My standouts were:

Lionel Shriver, So Much for That
Emma Donoghue, Room
Lisa Moore, February
Colm Toibin, Brooklyn
Amy Bloom, Away

Plus, two that I reread for book club and was wowed by again:

Tim O'Brien, The Things They Carried
Zoe Heller, The Believers


Sounds like you had a really good year!

My favorites for 2010: Love & Respect: The Love She Most Desires, the Respect He Desperately Needs - Eggerichs, Emerson

-and finally reading Pride and Prejudice. What an awesome book!

2011 will be my selective reading year. I want to be much more deliberate with my choices. I like what you said about paying more attention to reviews and making better selections.

Happy reading!

"So Much for That" by Lionel Shriver and "The Help" by Kathryn Stockett. But I don't read as much as you do! (Can I just say what an incredible thrill it is to see my book on your "Now reading" list?)

So clearly I need to read Middlesex and Unaccustomed Earth soon, as the other three are some of my favorites too. I think my final tally this year will be in the low eighties, which is also dwarfed by most bloggers I know, but I'm okay with that. I'd like to read more, but I also really enjoy the other parts of my life. Happy reading!


Great list. For some reason I hadn't realized until this post that American Wife was by Curtis Sittenfield. Glad to see someone else enjoyed Girl in Translation, though. Loved that book.

Honored to have GIRL IN TRANSLATION make the honorable mentions list! Much thanks to other readers who liked it as well. I appreciate it very much, and it's great seeing you on Facebook too!
