Goodbye 2010! My Favorites List


Well it’s New Year’s Eve…and I felt like I should at least acknowledge this is the post where I’m gonna try. In reality I don’t really care about New Years. I’m usually barely awake by midnight anyway. Except for  two years ago when the Hubs and I spent our evening in the ER with our then 3 1/2 year old daughter, who gets pneumonia like clockwork once a winter. That was a fun New Years…let me tell you.  But normally we sit at home and watch the ball drop from our living room. Now the more adventurous Nikki would LOVE to go to NYC just once in her lifetime. The other side of Nikki, the regular side, says “Uh, you don’t do well in crowds”. So this year I will eat pizza rolls and drink wine (yes, together) and once again watch the ball drop from my comfy purple couch…yes, it’s purple 🙂


However, since everyone else in the blog-o-sphere is doing end of the year posts…well damnit I will too. I have books I liked…I have people I met….So without further ado……


Nikki’s 2010 List of AWESOMENESS!

Top Ten Favorite Books

(these may or may not have been released in 2010, just the favorites of the ones I read)

10. Sin Undone by Larissa Ione

(well technically the entire Demonica series. Thanks goes to Cynthia Eden for telling me to read them)

9. Sins Of The Heart by Eve Silver

(There are 3 books in this series…I’ve read 2 so far…loved them both, expect to fully love the 3rd)

8. Wild Heart by Lori Brighton

(I only have the e-book of this..but damn I want the print book too. That’s how much I LOVED it)

7. The Black Dagger Brotherhood Series by JR Ward

(Who would have thought that when my friend on Facebook, Toni, said I needed to give this a would set off a chain of events that lead to my now obsessive behavior over this series)

6. Faefever by Karen Marie Moning

(I refuse to put the whole series b/c so far I’ve only liked book 4 LOL…but BARRON’s, OH BARRON’S…YUM)

5. Tempting Eden by Margaret Rowe

(Historical AND kinda dark…great read)

4. The Mind Readers by Lori Brighton

(AWESOME Debut into the YA genre)

Okay, at this point I want to say that the last three books on my list are TIED. I WILL NOT choose between them. That would be like choosing a favorite child LOL…I won’t do it 🙂 Not even going to number them.
