TSS: The last of 2009

A whole year disappears in a jiffy! Or may be not. It was an interesting year with ups and downs. Both in blogging front and personal front. I read more than 150 books and plan to read a few more in the next few days. I read Heart's Blood by Juliet Marillier and Saving Cicadas by Nicole Seitz in the last couple of days. I liked both.

Due to the holiday season, networking has been slow. I am way behind my reviews. I am planning to tackle those before 2010 strikes! I am not sure if I can but I will try.

Today I bought 8 books, the last ones of 2009. All for a steal. Believe it or not, I went for easy reads. Mostly romances. For someone who reads difficult books, I think I need to enjoy romances too. These are what I bought:

1) Captive by Brenda Joyce
2) The Courtship by Catherine Coulter
3) The Switch by Sandra Brown
4) The Valentine Legacy by Catherine Coulter
5) The Marshal and the Heiress by Patricia Potter
6) The Last Bachelor by Betina Krahn
7) Life Support by Tess Gerritsen-Medico thriller
8) The Undertaker's Widow by Phillip M. Margolin--legal thriller

Which one of those should I read first? I welcome suggestions!

I've only read Life Support from your list -- Gerritsen is a favorite of mine.

There's nothing wrong with easy reads! I vote for the thrillers - seems like a fun way to end the year!

I am a huge proponent of mixing easy reads in with the difficult; sometimes at a two to one ration even. You have to keep reading fun!

Hope 2010 is good to you! I'm behind in reviews, so don't feel bad. Enjoy your new books.

I often turn to mystery/thrillers when I need change. Have a great week, Gautami.

I feel the same way you do about the year seemed to fly by. It was a better year for me than 2008. I am a little scared to see what 2010 holds.
I have never read any of the books you listed either. Right now I am cramming in reading challenge books but this past week it has been hard to read. I may have to call it quits on a challenge I have done for the past 2 years. My easy reads are the Steeple Hill Love Inspired and Suspense books. :)

I don't recognize any of the eight, but I advocate choosing a book at random. If you don't like it after the first paragraph, drop it and randomly pick another book.

I think change is good. I vote for Sandra Brown's as I enjoy her books, easy reads but interesting. Or of course a thriller they are my all time favourite.

I tend to lean toward fairly easy reads at the end of the year too. Something about burnout in all areas of life driving me to pure fluff in my reading. ;-) And good luck getting to those reviews before the end of the year. I still have 6 I need to pound through before 2010 rolls in!
