books read in 2010

last year, i posted about the books i read in 2009. and i rated them - fresh out of memory, sorta like the kind of lasting impression they made on me, not necessarily exactly the same as i rated them on goodreads. i'm going to do the same thing again. [again, i'm bolding the 5 stars.] here goes:

Why haven't I read The Help yet, what is wrong with me?? I keep meaning to get on the list at the library. I am going to do it right now.
