This royal throne of kings, this sceptred isle, This earth of majesty, this seat of Mars, This other Eden, demi-paradise, This fortress built by Nature for herself Against infection and the hand of war, This happy breed of men, this little world, This precious stone set in the silver sea, Which serves it in the office of a wall Or as a moat defensive to a house, Against the envy of less happier lands,-- This blessed plot, this earth, this realm, this England. ~~William Shakespeare, Richard III

Booking Through Thursday - Looking Back

Booking Through Thursday is hosted by Deb at Wordpress.

It’s the last day of the year, and you know what that means … nostalgia and looking back.

Q: What were your favorite books of the year? (Books that were new to you in 2009, if not necessarily published this year.)

Wow! A big question! Well, I posted about this on my blog a couple days ago but I don't mind re-listing my top 5 reads of the year (I read soooo many!).

1. The Sunne in Splendour, Sharon Kay Penman
2. Katherine, Anya Seton
3. The Heretic Queen, Michelle Moran
4. The Daughter of Time, Josephine Tey
5. The Greatest Knight, Elizabeth Chadwick

Can't wait to see what 2010 has in store for me! There are a lot of books coming out that I can't wait to read!

  1. Katherine is one of my favorite books! I have to get some SKP in my TBR in 2010!
