In total I read 47 books last year which is down from the previous year (but I wasn't dealing with as much sickness in the house or a pregnancy!). As expected, the majority of those were historical fiction but I did throw in some others for variety! Here is a rundown of my tally:
Historical Fiction: 33 (mainly British)
Austen: 7 (including "sequels")
Contemporary Fiction: 1
Of course there were some books that I absolutely loved and there were those that really fell short. Here are my top 5 picks for 2010:
Honorable Mentions would have to go to:
Hugh and Bess, Susan Higginbotham
The Seventh Son, Reay Tannahill
Virgin: Prelude to the Throne, Robin Maxwell
The Founding, Cynthia Harrod-Eagles
Northanger Abbey, Jane Austen
I can't wait to see what will be on my 2011 list!
