3. Most Disappointing Book of 2010?
Nothing really disappointed me this year :)

4. Most surprising (in a good way!) book of 2010?
Lynette Eason's Women of Justice Series books. When I got this book for review I honestly put off reading it based on the cover. It did not look like one that would be good AT ALL! Finally, the time came and I picked it up. Suffice it to say....It was one I could NOT put down

Thanks Jamie :) This was fun to reflect on all I had read this past year. I am sooo very thankful to be able to read and review sooo many amazing books and meet others who share the love of reading and blogging as well! My family has been reading more as well and that always makes a momma happy :)

Hi Loren,

Great answers! We just chose Crossing Oceans as January's pick for the Christian Fiction Book Club. If you've already read it, I'd love for you to join the discussion.

Hey Loren, I totally agree with the Women Of Justice Series, I am so guilty of judging a book by its cover, and dreaded reading the book, but once I started I couldn't put it down. I think Cathy Bryant is easily my new favorite author for the year, her work reflects God so clearly, she is one talented lady!
Have a Safe and Happy New Year!
