Reading into 2010

Happy New Year, friends! I hope you've had a lovely vacation, and are back into the swing of things. Did you read anything good over the holidays?

I'm happy to report that I did sneak in a bit of reading time over the past week or so:

Precious (Push movie tie-in) by Sapphire was heart-breakingly amazing. Precious Jones is a broken girl with big dreams, and staggering challenges surround her. She's one of those characters who will linger in your heart & mind long after the last page.

You can listen to a snippet of the audiobook here:

I'm also still working on Frostbitten by Kelley Armstrong. I just love her werewolf series! This one's perfect for the winter months...set mostly in Alaska. But the chase scenes will heat you up (not to mention the frequent "wrestling" matches with Elena and Clay in the forest, in the hotel, behind a building, in the truck after being chased by a giant mystery beast, etc. etc.). :-D

Also, I popped open my ereader for a sneak peek at Carol Burnett's upcoming memoir, This Time Together. I remember watching her show when I was a kid. Remember the Gone With the Wind sketch?

Well surely that's enough to start the New Year off right. So tell me...what did you read over the holidays?

FQ - Oh, how I wish I had time to cram in non-work books. I'm still waiting to conquer Under the Dome! Think it's going to have to be the audiobook during the commute.

Julie - Excellent choice!!
