Another year has come to a close and I've been busy with lots of wonderful books. Rachelle's Book Club added several more reviews that I hope you'll enjoy.
I could talk books forever, so please tell me what you think about some of the books on my list. I've also added a link to those books I reviewed.
I'm already scheduling reviews for this year, so if you'd like your book to be considered please email me at RachellethewriterATgmail.com
Now, I've got to hurry and get this list done so I can finish reading the first book on my list of 2010!
I'll add a disclaimer that just because I read all of these books, doesn't mean I loved them all--a few I would never recommend, but I'm just giving you my list. You can see my reviews to see which ones I liked and I also marked my favorites with **

56. Wrong Number- Rachelle J. Christensen (publication date, March 2010)
Yep, first I wrote it, then I've read and revised my book, polishing it for its print date. Stay tuned for more news on this and future book giveaways!
Hopefully I remembered to write them all down--quite a list and there's a lot of favorites on there. I'm excited for what's in store for Rachelle's Book Club in 2010!
*I received several free copies of books to review during 09 and it was fun to see all the different writing styles of various authors. Receiving free books doesn't influence my reviews--I'll always tell you what I think.
