Wrapping up the Year

First, am I spelling “wrap” correctly??  I’m a bit braindead at the moment and it just doesn’t seem like I’m using the right form of it..

2010 will soon be coming to an end, so I decided to look back on everything I read this year to try and pick some favorite reads of the year.  Boy was it hard.  Instead of picking one or two awesome books, I’m going to list a bunch of favorites that are definite must-reads (and rereads in the future pour moi).  I’m always surprised by how many books I read and truly adore, and then I remember that it’s probably because I’m such a picky reader.  If I’m bored, I’ll read anything, but for the most part I only read books that I REALLY want to read.

My Favorite Books of 2010 (links lead to reviews on my blog):

The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows

The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society (Random House Reader's Circle)
The Sweet Far Thing by Libba Bray (review coming tomorrow!)
The Sweet Far Thing (Gemma Doyle, Book 3)
The Time Traveler’s Wife by Audrey Niffenegger

The Time Traveler's Wife

Reckless by Cornelia Funke

The Thief Lord by Cornelia Funke
The Thief Lord
The Book Thief by Markus Zusak

The Book Thief

The Books of Pellinor (The Crow and The Singing) by Alison Croggon
The Singing: The Fourth Book of Pellinor (Pellinor Series)

Waiting for Columbus by Thomas Trofimuk
Waiting for Columbus

The Little Stranger by Sarah Waters
The Little Stranger

I realize this is a really long list…..and there are still books that I had to leave off because I didn’t want the list to be even longer.  If you want any good books to read next year, feel free to take some ideas from this list 🙂 


About Kelly

Hi! My name’s Kelly. I’m a twenty-something gal from Buffalo, NY. Mom to a little dog named Peabody and a slightly evil cat named Archie. Engaged to the best dude ever. I love books and craft beer! I also love all things France and francophone and have a degree in French Language and Literature from Buffalo State College. My blog used to be called Kelly’s France Blog, but I finally decided it needed a change because I wasn’t posting about French things nearly as often as I used to! You can still see all my imported posts on A Book and a Beer, or you can visit my original blog at http://kellysfranceblog.blogspot.com.
