I had so many favorites this year! I am putting them in the order I read them, I am also including series because most of the books belong to a series and should be read that way.

1)Heirs of Montana Series by Tracie Peterson
1)Land of My Heart
2)The Coming Storm
3)To Dream Anew
4)The Hope Within

2)Memoirs of A Geshia by Arthur Golden

3)Elm Creek Quilters Series by Jennifer Chiaverini
There are nine books in this series and it is very very good

4)Angry Housewives eating Bonbons by Lorna Landvik

5)The Victory Club by Robin Lee Hatcher

The Tenth Circle by Jodi Picoult

The Mephisto Club by Tess Gerritsen

Goodnight Nobody by Jennifer Weiner

Twelve Sharp by Janet Evanovich
