Lover of Books

I love to read. I always have. Atleast that's what my mom tells me. In law school, when I was reading boring law books, I found that reading a good non-law book before bed relaxed my mind. That still holds true now, even though I'm generally not reading law books any more (only at work). In any case, here is the 2010 list of the books I read this past year, I enjoyed most of them:

  • Her Fearful Symmetry (by Audrey Niffenegger)
  • Naked in Death (by J.D. Robb)
  • The Girl Who Played with Fire (by Steig Larsson)
  • In the Woods (by Tana French)
  • The Monster of Florence (by Douglas Preston)
  • The Carrie Diaries (by Candace Bushnel)
  • Little Bee (by Chris Cleave)
  • A Space Between Us (by Thrity Umbrigar)
  • The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Next (by Steig Larsson)
  • Just Don't Call me Ma'am (by Anna Mitchael)
  • Commencement (by J. Courtney Sullivan)
  • The Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake (by Aimee Bender)
  • The Art of Racing in the Rain (by Garth Stein)
  • One Day (by David Nicholls)
  • Outlander (by Diana Gabaldon)
  • Dragonfly in Amber (by Diana Gabaldon)
  • Voyager (by Diana Gabaldon)
  • The Hunger Games (by Suzanne Collins)
  • Catching Fire (by Suzanne Collins)
  • The Mocking Jay (by Suzanna Collins)
  • In Cold Blood (by Truman Capote)
  • The Choice (by Nicholas Sparks) - Audio CD
  • The New York Regional Mormon Singles Halloween Dance (by Elna Baker)
So, I read 23 books this year! You might be asking yourself where I find time to do this, well I generally read at night, while wathing t.v. Or, I read a lot on vacations (atleast 5 of those books were read on various trips I took this year).

I look forward to 2011 and many many more books to explore!! Already on the list are:

  • Harry Potter books (I've in fact only read one - the last one, and I read it after I saw the 6th movie because I wanted to know how it ended and didn't want to wait till 2010).
  • I'm currently reading - the 4th Outlander book, and Jane Eyre.
  • More classics (they are cheap cheap to buy on the Kindle).
There ya go! If you have any recommendations for a good book, let me know!

I love the In Death series! I think I own almost all of them. The Harry Potter books are also really good.

Also, if you're into mystery check out the Kate Shugak series by Dana Stabenow. They come out every year or two...and the older ones are really hard to find for some reason. Play with Fire is one of the first that is easy to get. But I love those too.

What did you think of The Art of Racing in the Rain? I've been thinking about possibly picking that one up.
