Wow, that must have been some task to pick out just ten!!!! I've read some on your list but not others. Guess I better get to work!

Michelle said...

Jody, I absolutely loved reading The Preacher's Bride, and I am so looking forward to reading more books from you in the future!

Michelle said...

Thank you very much, Laura. I can think of at least one book in 2011, that I feel will be great. ;)

I need to hook up my new DVD player so I can watch N&S. :)

Michelle said...

Kav, it definitely did take some thinking. I loved all of the books though, in fact I read one of them within the last week. It was one of the books I got for Christmas.

So are you retitling your blog as Best Reads 2011 now?

Irene Hannon said...

Hi, Michelle! Thank you for including TWO of my books in your top ten list! I'm honored. Hope you have a wonderful 2011!

Michelle said...

You are very welcome, Irene! Fatal Judgment was one of my Christmas gifts this year, and it was the first book I read after Christmas. I couldn't put it down.
