Hello everyone, here is the start of my list for 2010. I will only be posting the books as I read them and have a review after this post. For the full list of what I have read that I will keep on my own private journal. Now to the books so far.

1. The Harlequinby Laurell K. Hamilton
Pages: 422
Genere: Sci-fi/Fantasy
Thoughts: I read this book back in January shortly after getting it for christmas. What I remember is that I finished in only a few days. If you are into vampires, were-animals, and sexual scenes all in the same book then I would recommend the book. If you are not then I would say this is probably not the series for you.

2. Blood Noir by Laurell K. Hamilton
Pages: 340
Genere: Sci-fi/Fantasy
Thoughts: This book like Harlequin is not for everyone. There is a lot of sex and violence in the book. I happen to like the style of the writing and the characters in the story. Which is why I have read all the books that I can that are in this series.

3. The Lost Symbol by Dan Brown
Pages: 509
Genere: Fiction
Thoughts: This is the latest of the Robert Langdon books. Like Dan Brown's other books Angel's and Demons and Da Vinci Code, I couldn't put this down. I was drawn in to the plot and was on the edge of my seat wondering if Robert would solve the mystery in time. I would recommend the book to anyone who has read the other Langdon books and liked them.

4. Skin Trade by Laurell K. Hamilton
Pages: 486
Genere: Sci-fi/Fantasy
Thoughts: I honestly don't think I should recomend this book for the sheer fact of I have completely forgotten what it was about. I actually had to look up the plot of the book on amazon to remind myself. I know when I read it I must have liked it because I bought the next book in the series and read that next.

5. Flirt by Laurell K. Hamilton
Pages: 109
Genere: Sc-fi/Fantasy
Thoughts: This book was more of a short story then a large novel. It was what in one of Hamiltons larger books would have just been a sub-plot but instead she made it into its own novel. It was cute, but had a lot of sex, and a bit of magical slavery in it. But other then that it was a nice book.

6. Marker by Robin Cook
Pages: 658
Genere: Mystery
Thoughts: Marker is well...confusing at first. It is dealing with a fairly new medical issue of looking at peoples genes and knowing that they have the marker for disease later in life. I would recommend the book if you want a long read that deals with more current medical issues. If you are not into this kind of thing I would probably back off reading this book.
