2010 Books Read

I read mostly historical fiction, mysteries, and women's fiction, with some Young Adult novels thrown in. I am fortunate that I receive Advance Rreader Copies from several publishers, and participate in TLC Book Tours. I review all my ARCs on my blog, but I don't usually review library books or those I own.
