Best Books of 2010



I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving and got to spend quality time with close family and friends. I know I did! I ate too much, slept too much and was just all around lazy......it was perfect!!!

I can't believe 2010 is almost over! I thought I would talk today about some books I have read this past year that I thought were must reads. From about April to July I had a lot of time on my hands. My husband and I moved to FL and it took me awhile to get settled so I spent a lot of time reading, something I had not had time to do in YEARS!!!

I have to say the best book I read all year was "Let the Great World Spin" by Colum McCann. Such a great read!


I also read "Little Bee" by Chris Cleave. I've heard this book is not for everyone. I lent it to my Grandma who LOVES to read and she hated it.....read it and let me know, I loved it!


"Sarah's Key" by Tatiana de Rosnay was one I started, put down, picked back up again and was so glad I did!! Such a great book with a super sad start and great ending! Perfect rainy day read.


"The Council of Dads" by Bruce Feiler was unbelievable! Talk about a life-changing, tear jerker....this book will make you laugh out loud and cry all in the same chapter. I read this one in a day.


"Bel Canto" by Ann Patchett was such a good book! This one isn't too new but it was really a great story with a lot of turns and twists and the plot itself is just so unimaginable. Read this one on a flight....great plane and airport read.


So those are a few of the books I read this year and thought I would share. It's coming up on that time of year where you get a little time off to just relax and be with friends and family so what better time to curl up in front of the fire with a good book? Enjoy and let me know what you think!
