Shiver is fabulous. I've been told Tender Morsels is, too.

I like Rutherfurd's lightly likable books, and I love New York, so I probably will read New York in 2010 after I read 20 that I own. I'd love to sign up for this challenge, but I'm going to be taking two classes in the summer, which cramps my reading. I'll have to pick short books for June and July.

I have read Leviathan by Scott Westerfield and I loved it. Never read any of his books before but loved the science and fiction molding together.

Such a great list! I recognize many books I loved (Catching Fire, Leviathan, ...) and I hope you'll have as much fun read them all!
