Top 21 Reads of 2009 and Top 21 to Read in 2010

This has probably been one of the biggest ever reading years for me, though I still read no where near as many as most of you. I'm so glad I started blogging in May as I feel it has only increased my love of reading even more. Now since everyone else is doing these, "Best of 2009" posts I figured I should probably do one as well. Plus I will be listing some of the books I'm most looking forward to next year. Also I did 21 instead on 20 and if you wanna know why, well, cause I can. That's why. :P

I can already tell that 2010 is going to be a terrific year for YA books! I already have over 150 books on my 2010 wishlist and have no doubt that I will be adding more before long. So I think I did pretty darn good to narrow them down to only 21. lol.

Hope you all enjoyed this post and sorry I didn't do covers, with 42 books listed that would have made for a LONG post. Besides I was oh so sweet as to include links to all the books Goodreads pages so be happy. Oh, and be sure to leave me the link to your top reads post and what you are looking forward to and I'll go check it out. :D Hope you all have a great New Year's Eve tonight.

So glad to see Betrayal of Natalie Hargrove there... so many people hated it!! I have so many books to read that I've already purchased that 2010's potential totally scares me!!
