It's time for my annual Favorite Books of the Year! Aren't you thrilled? These days, if I can get through a book, it's automatically a favorite. Oh, how I miss the days of being content to read any novel my fingers stumble upon.
In no particular order--hey, it was hard enough to narrow it to ten:
The Host by Stephanie Meyer (A strange speculative fiction story that somehow held me captive anyway)
The Shape of Mercy by Susan Meissner (Compelling romance and history in a contemporary setting)
The Christmas Sweater by Glenn Beck (A heartwarming Christmas story)
Windless Summer by Heather Sharfeddin (An engaging tale of a man and his mute daughter)
Love Starts with Elle by Rachel Hauck (A fresh contemporary romance)
Vision in White by Nora Roberts (Could've done without the bedroom scenes, but it's a romantic, captivating story)
Though Waters Roar by Lynn Austin (A well-told tale of three generations of women)
The Castaways by Elin Hilderbrand (Intriguing story about a murder amongst a group of Nantucket couples.)
Firefly Lane by Kristin Hannah (A touching tale of friendship)
Eclipse by Stephanie Meyer (3rd installment of the Twilight Series)
That's my top ten. Of course, I'm telling you all this in hopes you'll share your favorites, which just might make my list for 2010.
