Most Memorable

Currently Reading: Finished Brit Party yesterday! Now I need to go back and read Brynn's Tempting Tamara...I'm postive I'm recognizing some characters. But if I'm wrong, no big deal. Also read Mary Martinez's Enchanted Dreams. Wow...reminds me of some of the 'wishful' dreams I had in my late high school/early college years! Too bad MINE didn't come true!

Next up: Cindy's Three For All and Desiree Holt's Teaching Molly.

Apologies to my blogmates: My brand new computer is acting up, and we think it is caused by blogger. I'm going to try an experiment; I'll only read the blogs at my 'temporary office' and see if the problem clears up. My daughter said her laptop settled down after I quit using it after getting the new PC. Not sure if it is blogger, or if it is the book sites. I guess next week we'll know!

I've run several anti-virus scans and nothing shows up. But SOMETHING is causing it; hence the experiment.

So if I don't comment for a while, I'm not ignoring you; it simply means it is too cold to leave the house, or I'm so busy writing I forget to go to the office!

With all the polls taking place, and the controversy, I decided to officially declare my favorite books of 2008.

The publisher I bought from the most? TEB

Most Frequent Author? Brynn Paulin (8 books) Ms Pape was a close 2nd, with 7 books.

New Author? Tie. I bought 4 Dakota Rebel books, and 4 by Kelly Kirch, but Kathleen Coddington's Witch Ball is still one of my favorite books.

Now to the actual books. I couldn't just pick a top 5, so I went back and picked the most memorable for each month. How did I choose? I looked at the beginning of the week or month where I posted the books and if I could still recall the storyline, I picked the one that jumped out as the most memorable. And in some instances, choosing just one was impossible.

Jan: Tie: Carol Lynn's Rawley's Redemption and Brynn's On Your Knees

Feb: Djinni and the Geek by Cindy Spencer Pape

Mar: Tie: Hello by Dakota Rebel and Marriage Mart by Kelly Kirch (My mom really enjoyed this one too!)

Apr: The Perfect Cover by Claire Thompson

May: Dragon in the System by Cindy Spencer Pape

June: Fairy Dust by Tielle St. Clare

July: Witch Ball by Kathleen Coddington

Aug: More Than Words by Kelly Kirch

Sept: Tie: Mating Stone by Jacqueline Roth and Daffodil by Anny Cook

Oct: Sandra Cox's Boji Stones and Rose Quartz

Nov: Grand Seduction by Lisa Logan

Dec: The entire Magic Series, by Regina Carlysle, Cindy Spencer Pape, and Desiree Holt.

So what's your opinion? Agree with me or am I showing favoritism? And if you've not read any of these books, please put them on your TBB list. IMHO, you're missing out.
