I was too busy writing last year to read as much as I wanted. Which is a shame because there are soooo many good books! I’m trying to make up for that this year. Just in case you’re curious as to what I’ve been reading, here’s a list of what I’ve read so far in 2011. I’ve starred (*) the books that were favorites.

Whew! And that doesn't contest entries or the occasional magazine article. No wonder I've been accused of always having my face in a book.
Face of Danger by Roxanne St. Claire the minute it downloads to my Nook.
Maybe some women’s fiction. Last year, I read all the finalist entries in the “Novels with Romantic Elements” category for RWA’s top writing award, the Rita. I enjoyed them so much, I might do the same thing again this year.
