D's Favorite Books in 2010

Maybe I’m getting nostalgic because it’s the end of year.  Or maybe I’ve been reading everyone else’s “best-of” and “favorites” lists and it got me thinking.  But whatever the reason,  I wanted to share some of my favorite reads from 2010.  (Note:  Not all books were published in 2010, I just read them this year)

  • The Kids Are All Right by Diana Welch (Adult)
  • The Best Bad Luck I Ever Had by Kristen Levine (YA)
  • Lunch in Paris by Elizabeth Bard (Adult)
  • Her Fearful Symmetry by Audrey Niffenegger (Adult)
