  1. Wow, Mrs. B! You read a lot of books this year! And I read a few of them! I especially loved Where'd You Go, Bernadette?

    The Game of Kings by Dunnett I tried to read this year. But I somehow hit a snag with that one. Will probably continue it next year.

    I can't wait to read your top 10 books!

  2. I loved the Maria Semple, too. I've got the Jess Walters to read in the New Year.

  3. Thanks for posting this list, Mrs. B! Lot of books here I've been planning to read myself. A few I've read. I'm glad to see that I wasn't the only one who wasn't crazy over Levithan's Every Day.:)
