Anyway, here's the part you really want to see:

These are roughly in the order in which I read them. The titles link to my reviews. I tried to choose a favorite, but there are several that I just can't choose between. I recommend them all!
2010 Challenges completed (challenge titles link to my posts with lists of the books I read for that challenge):
Book Chick City;
Home Girl's Book Blog (formerly J. Kaye's Book Blog);
Stainless Steel Droppings;
New [to me] Authors hosted by Literary Escapism; and
Hispanic Heritage hosted right here!
I came up a little short on just one challenge, the Once Upon a Time challenge hosted by Crazy Book Slut, reading only 4 retold fairy tales rather than the requisite 5.
Still, I did well with my challenges, although I mostly signed up for challenges that matched what I normally read anyway. I haven't had much time for blogging lately, so I haven't signed up for any challenges for next year at this point, but I hope to make time to look over everyone's posts this weekend!
