- The Very Persistent Gappers of Frip by George Saunders (Picture Book) -Very well written, Awesome sentiment about being neighborly
- A Quick Bite . . by Lyndsy Sands - Very funny “vampires” from Atlantis
- Just Imagine by Susan Elizabeth Phillips - Post-Civil War containing two romances in one!
- Kitty and the Midnight Hour by Carrie Vaughn - interesting characters, the world isn’t as realistic as Patricia Briggs’ Mercy Thompson
- Love Bites by Lynsay Sands - Rachel works nights in a morgue and just got a promotion to days, when a victim comes in for the second time. . .
- The Summer of You by Kate Noble - typical historical romance, not overly memorable
- Single White Vampire by Linsay Sands - So Funny! My sides hurt from laughing!
- Take Me by Bella Andre - the story line was good, but the lovemaking is a bit too graphic for my tastes
- The Essential 55 by Ron Clark - I totally love this book, this is my second time through!
- Ill Wind by Rachel Caine - returned to the library unfinished - couldn't get into it! Felicia Day failed me! ;)
- An English Bride in Scotland by Lynsay Sands - so funny!
- Kiss an Angel by Susan Elizabeth Phillips - The depth of characters is so realistic!
- Under a Vampire Moon by Lynsay Sands - Wow, sexy vampires on the beach - so funny!
- The Accidental Vampire by Lynsay Sands - Ha! My favorite part is when they go to the mattress store!
- Unnatural Creatures stories selected by Neil Gaiman - Scary! Do not read before bed! (Didn't read them all)
- The Husband Hunt by Lynsay Sands - I cannot get over how funny Lynsay Sands' romances are! I have never laughed so much while reading!
- The Taming of a Scottish Princess by Karen Hawkins - I love how much his sister warps his writing and how the heroine trys practice kisses from another man to see if his are special.
Also, Here is last year's list (since I can't remember where I published it! ;)
