Books Read in 2010

It's time to look back at what I read in the preceding year.  Here's what I read in 2009 and 2008.  Normally, I like to divvy these lists up by month, but due to a computer crash, I lost that data.  This should be a mostly complete list though.  I generally strive to read about a hundred books a year, and I fell a little short of that mark - but 2010 was a very turbulent year.  Several job changes, several moves, including a huge cross-country move.  I'll just have to forgive myself for slacking a bit on the reading side.  There's a good variety of books, some middle-grade fiction, quite a bit of YA (mostly paranormal) and a few adult books, fiction and non-fiction for when I need some occasional "grown-up" reading. In 2011, hopefully I'll read 150!  I also plan on keeping better track of what I'm reading from month to month. With no further ado, here is the list:

  1. You read a lot in 2010! well obviously you read a lot as a book blogger :p I fogot to keep track of the # of books I read in 2010, so I'm going to try and keep track in 2011 :) The dUFF was really good and the writing in Ash was stunning.

    Thank you so much for taking the time to visit, comment and follow Reading in Color. There is such a need for contemporary fiction for all minorities. Latino, Asian and Native American kids tend to get ingored in literature and African American students are usually stuck with historical fiction about the same old stuff. Ugh! There are some really good historical fiction books though (quick plug: consider joining the poc reading challenge/end plug. haha)

    I wish I could send the post to the CSK committe so they could see all the comments being left and see some feedback. I'm happy that people pay some attention to them though =) And I'm flattered that you thought I wrote the post well, I was worried that I would be too vague and simple, but as long as I got my point across, I'm good.

  2. Hey, I'm just glad I was able to get across how much I agree with you on so many points about the CSK award. Typically, when I feel something so strongly, I'm reduced to semi-incoherent blabbering. Yeah!

    Yes, to needing different age-brackets, yes, to less historical fiction always winning, yes, to recognizing some new authors who haven't gotten any CSK love yet.

    This year, I'm shooting for reading 150 books -- although, that breaks down to a little over a dozen a month. We'll just have to see how that goes!
